Ok, I've been doing this long enough to know that most people dislike working Sundays. So they claim they need it off to attend church and my response is always "I think god would understand if you skip Sunday service to got to work, he would rather you pay your mortgage". This shocks most people when I tell them that, probably because they are expecting me to "understand" and say "ok, no problem, you can have every Sunday off when the rest of the staff works every Sunday". I even had one person tell me that it's against the law to make them work on Sunday if they are practicing their faith. Well, the first Sunday he decided not to show, I gave him all the time in the world to go to church and never heard from an attorney... But I have just come accross a new one.... I have a cook that claims he is a muslim and he needs 20 to 30 minutes on Saturdays and Sundays at 1:30 to go pray. My exec allows this (why I can't for the life of me imagine) but it is affecting the flow of business. How do I go about telling this guy he needs to stay on the line and he can do his praying after his shift?
