I mean.. It is fast food. Not sure why anyone would expect that work environment to be anything but shitty

 
What does it matter which sector it is? If the people you work with are shitty people, you'll dread going to work and vice versa, whether you're a garbage man or a rocket scientist.

I'm a rocket man.

I don't care if it's fast food or slow food. There is never an excuse to insult someone using their nationality! It has no effect on their suitability for the job whatsoever.

It's low class, rude and shameful. A manager should know better. I'm pretty militant about these things.

 

Got on a bus with my boyfriend today and a man behind him asked him where he was from.

"England" he said, then he asked him whether I was from Africa.

Then my boyfriend said "It's irrelevant." and he goes "Some of them Africans are alright"

 

I could see my boyfriend getting a bit wound up but the guy didn't really say anything harmful to be honest so no point getting annoyed at nothing.

However, if someone criticised me using my race or nationality as a reason for the criticism, I would lose it.

 

(unless they were bigger and stronger than me)

 

In other news, exam results come out in the next few days yikes.

Going to distract myself up until the moment of truth.

 

I essentially find out whether I book my flight ticket to Toronto and organise my study permit...............

 

Or..... 

 

I don't have a backup plan lol, I'm going to Canada I don't even care.

So...the man asked him about you referring to you in third person? That would usually seem rude to me...

Yeah it's pretty rude but I can't be bothered to get offended at everything.

I decided to let him off  :unsure: but if things do escalate then I can definitely stand up for myself where necessary.

I'm not hot headed at all, but I can definitely speak up when I need to. |^_^| 

 

but a lot worse has happened to me in this town, and a good friend of mine was called a terrorist (n) word because she's black and Muslim.

It's kinda ridiculous

I'll say it again, having high expectations of a manager at McDonald's is laughable. I'm not saying it's right, but it's something those in the industry have to deal with. I worked in a similar fast food place as a teen, gave me incentive to work hard so I never have to work somewhere like it again.

idk, expecting others to treat you with respect doesn't seem that unreasonable to me

I'm not advocating for poor treatment of others. I'm just saying it's unlikely everyone you come across in life will be respectful, especially in fast food shitholes

Drunk bike riding is my new favourite drunk activity. Didn't even fall once.

 

 

Definately got some good jumps in.

I pronounce it de fy night lee in my head now so I remember the spelling

Definitely is a stupid word. Apparently autocorrect gave up on me too.

 

I see no reason why fast food should be a poor working environment. I mean, I know it often is, for the same reason that working at Walmart or Bestbuy is also probably not going to be a fun experience. There is always someone out there who wants or needs the job more than you do, enough to put up with whatever the local hostile working environment entails. Such places are only motivated to stop being terrible places to work when employee retention is something that matters. Until then, you have a revolving door workplace.

 

Fast Food has the bonus of being a customer service job that puts you in direct contact with people who have no problem being excessively creepy in public. Or just rude.

I'm in Norway, again.

Been fun, going from 25 degrees to 3 degrees (Celsius here). Caught a cold.

Had more action in the first days than in some summers. 7 calves, one emergency slaughter, 3 with broken feet...
Luckily we have a hot veterinary student as a trainee 20 days this summer. Is fun.

happy birthday breh~~~

 

the Grateful Dead show tonight was probably the best show I've eer seen in my life. Now I'm super torn between going to see their next show at the same place tomorrow, which will legitimately be the last show I can ever see of theirs, or to go into San Francisco and seeing my first pride parade, which will be insane because of the recent legalization,but I feel like there's a super high chance I'll be living in this area after graduation and that I'll have more pride parades I can go to in the future. Blehhhhhh this is hard lol

Grateful Dead > pride parade

 

no questions asked

“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”
