On my FB feed this morning: pictures of a good time at a local bar.
This was the bar I tried to get a bartending gig at, way back at the end of February.
When I applied for the job, I got “I’ll show this to my partners; I will let you know at the end of the week.” (I recapped the spiel and what transpired at the interview in a prior post here on Harderworld.)
She (who happens to be one of the owners) never did call me or notify me. I didn’t hear a godblessed word out of her.
Anyway, there’s the pictures of the bar, and a band that performed there, and a bunch of patrons, all having a good time. I wonder still what happened there and why i was treated so shabbily.
Oh certainly it is well within her rights to hire who she wants.
But still: from a client satisfaction standpoint — and from the fact alone that you are a new bar owner — don’t you want to keep a potential patron (me)? And get on the good foot with the clientele?
And people do tend to bring friends with them on a Friday and Saturday night; I guess she doesn’t care about that, either. She pretty much lost me as a patron — I used to eat there every so often — and doesn’t care about that at all.
I feel bad about that job. And I wonder how everything got to be the way it is. For awhile, I could have a survivalist job; I guess nothin’ doin’ with that, either.
