my job as a pastry chef is over…

i was “let go” from my job today. i wasn’t really told the reason, but i got the impression it was because one pie was too salty. i was on my own there, never got much direction. never had the ingredients i needed. i was patronized, bullied and sabotaged by a certain boss and told by others that when i was not at work my “nice fat ass” was talked about quite a bit.

as you can tell i wasn’t comfortable there to begin with, but i loved the actual job and i was a hard worker when i had the guidance and ingredients i needed. i always did what i was asked. i made initiative when i was told it was incouraged, but had everything i did pushed aside and ignored.

when i was told today it was done in a nice manor. i even comforted my main boss because i could tell it was hard for him. i got to hear later today when i was coming to terms with it that things MUCH different were being said. i shy away from drama, but goddamnit i am a human and i have a little pride.

i don’t like fucking up.

    I’ve been reading your blog for awhile, i think i orginally found it through livejournal (Saucey dwellings community). Anyways, just wanted to say that you seem like a really hardworking, nice person and didn’t deserve being treated the way they were treating you. *hugs*

      thank you so much! and you’re right, i deserve better. i’m slowly starting to realize that! thanks so much for reading!

        I was in a bad work situation a year ago, not being treated fairly. It takes time to heal and move on, but you will get there and feel so happy you left the situation 🙂 I wish you all the best!

        Love reading your blog! 😀
