On Wednesday I picked Andrea up from Sanfilippo’s restaurant. They are short-staffed in the kitchen and Andrea suggested that I might be a good candidate to work there in the short-term. When I went in to collect her on Wednesday, Sam, who is connected to the owner, asked me if I would help out. I said I’d be happy to. He told me to start on Thursday morning (today), at 10am. “Come over and meet Anthony and he’ll get you started.”
I arrived at 9.50am, went in and asked for Anthony. Anthony does not work on Thursday. I explained why I was there and then was told to go and see the cook on duty. He didn’t know anything about me starting and suggested that I come back at 11.30am.
11.25am I arrived back at the restaurant. No Anthony, nobody with any idea why I was there. So they suggested that I fill out an application form. I did and I explained that I spoke to Sam the evening before and that I was due to start today.
I was going to go into more detail however confusion seemed the main course on the menu today, so I decided to leave it for now and digest what had happened and come back in the evening to talk to Sam.
