Whats up Pizza Hut?
In a galaxy far, far away and a log time ago I once worked at a Pizza Hut as a teenage prep cook. I loved my job and my manager was pretty decent, so I was disappointed to read this New York Post article about a Jacksonville, FL Pizza Hut Manager telling his employees there was no excuse for not coming into work during Hurricane Irma! It's been all over the TV with the Governor and Mayor of Jacksonville both issuing mandatory evacuations for Hurricane Irma. This manager does not have common sense first and foremost but even beyond that anyone with any kind of self-awareness has got to think is what I am doing right? Is what I am doing , saying or writing have the potential to go viral?
Oh yeah, how about just some basic human decency!
Here is the article:
The manager of a Pizza Hut in Jacksonville, Fla., ordered employees not to skip out on work – just because a hurricane blew through town. A picture of the written statement – telling workers they couldn’t blow off work without more than one weekday’s notice – went viral over the weekend and Monday.
“If evacuating, you will have a 24-hour period before storm ‘grace period’ to not be scheduled,” the heartless boss wrote. “You cannot evacuate Friday for a Tuesday storm event! Failure to show for these shifts, regardless of reason, will be considered a no call/no show and documentation will be issued"
