It could be a multitude of things and it's something she just wanted to vent about and get some advice so I think after all she's been through, she needs the break so everyone be easy on her. thumbs_up.gif Spread some sugar love icon_wink.gif

****UPDATE**** First of all, I would like to say I'm so sorry it's taken so long to get back with you guys. Here's what happened..... Since the last time I posted, I have had nothing but a "series of unfortunate events". My husband had 2 deaths in the family back to back, he lost his job, we caught a virus on the computer, then our cable co cut off our internet service because someone was using our ip(or some other) address to spam people and so on. I'm not trying to make any excuses or anything, but I thought yall deserved an explanation on where I've been. So, I went to the bakery and asked for my pay(I talked to the husband). Now his wife just looked at me and didn't say a word to me...just turned her nose up. So I'm thinking to myself oh I'm really gonna let loose on them and tell all and call the health dept. He gave me my pay which only averaged out to $7 an hour! Cheap!! After that, I pulled him to the side and told him there's a few things that you need to know....I told him eveything that went on that day but I held back the fact that I was going to call the health dept. because he seemed concerned and was understanding. And also he did inform me that not only did that b*t*h of a decorator got fired but the cashier that kept going MIA was out of there too. So that's what happened. He did try to offer me a job again but I declined. I just don't think I could even set myself up for dissappointment like that again. And I don't know what his wife's problem was but I wouldn't want to deal with her again either. The next time I ever work in a bakery will be my own!!!! icon_biggrin.gif Once again I am sorry it took so long to reply. And for the record, I would not make up a situation like this just for the fun or attention. Got better things to do!

I am glad that you got your pay and that you had a nice talk with the lady's husband.

Good luck to you!

I just skimmed through - OMG what a hassle!

I can agree, I'd probably be pissed too, if I thought I had to train my replacement, but still, it's no excuse for her attitude. The child shouldn't have been there. No ifs ands or buts.

Sorry that you didn't get paid squat and had to go through all that BS. Glad that you cleaned your hands of that place - not worth your time or trouble. Did ya call the health dept?

Sorry for the loss also. Seems like you hit a patch of bad luck there!

So glad we got an update on this! But I'm so sorry to hear of all of your troubles - not your year, huh? I hope your husband's family is doing well and that your cable/internet doesn't get any more viruses - you have virus protection software now,r ight?? I hope so! You can also download adaware - I think it's at adaware.com - it's not the best, but ti's free and it's better than nothing.

Thanks for updating us and I hope things start to go better for you!

glad you didn't take the bakery job...although I would have told him "I couldn't bear to work with your wife"

Tobinx,

So sorry for your losses and the horrible luck you have had these last few months. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. I'm glad you got a "little" compensation for the headaches at that disastrous bakery and you can finally wash your hands of the place. Did you ever call the health dept.??
Best wishes for your decorating future!! icon_smile.gif

What a day you had Sorry. But remember the cakes you saved led to Happy people and thats what matters to them. I think I would have a lil heart to heart with the owner maybe shes unaware things like this go on when shes away or maybe like a previous reply shes looking to get rid of her.( and hopes she can use your experience to get that done.) Some times Ive found Bosses that are mealy mouthed or dont like to say things but she could lose her business and I believe I would tell her that.
Sorry again and hope things work out for you.
Let us know how things go from here.

I'm so sorry to hear about everything that happened. I'm SOOOOOOOO glad you decided to tell the owner everything, AND that he fired those two girls! Did you still call the health dept??

Welcome back.

I'm glad you told the owner all that! And good for you not taking the job again. Who needs that kind of drama! You'll be better off on your own!

And what a learning experience this has been, eh?! At least you learned a lot about a bakery - what NOT to do. LOL

I'm glad you stood up for yourself. $7 an hour for a decorator is a CRIME.

I hope your luck is on the upswing. What a bunch of horrible things to happen so close.

Tobinx - so glad you got paid and all but...did you get your pictures back???? They are definitely worth more than the paycheck he gave you.

Sorry for all the reall hard times you have had to deal with. I hope everything is looking up for you now.

((((HUGS))))
