The new management at the GM is a husband-and-wife team. Jean bit everyone's head off yesterday. She even had a go at Alan, in front of us! There came a point when Rob told the woman to stop shouting at him because it would only make him less inclined to hurry. The way I see it is that she has too little faith in people. If she would just let us do our jobs, everything will be fine because we are most definitely not the incompetent fools she thinks we are. The bar tells me that she is just trying to let us know who's boss but that she overdid it and now everyone is just not motivated to work anymore. In fact, she told me to sell Rhubarb Crumbles as Caramel Apple Tarts, claiming that customers will not know the difference, and told the bar to recycle larger! She told me and Precious to stop working against each other when she clearly cannot cooperate with her husband at all. There were numerous occasions when Alan told her to leave the kitchen alone because we were already doing everything we were supposed to do but Jean merely raised her voice even higher.
Dan says he prefers I stop working weekends altogether because if he sees the manager lash out at me again, he'll do her in for real.
