Breakfast At Work

I was at work last Saturday. I don’t mind working Saturday – I get a day off during the week in lieu. One of the things I look forward to on a Saturday is my breakfast. We always order either from the local café or from McDonald’s. Last Saturday it was McDonald’s.

I don’t call myself vegetarian but I eat very little meat. I usually order an egg McMuffin for breakfast from McDonald’s, which is exactly what I did on Saturday.

One of my Muslim colleagues placed the order and delivered my breakfast to me. Telling me that they had put meat on it. In fact there was a label saying ‘no sausage’. When I looked I found a cheeseburger!

I was quite offended by this. More so by the fact that one of my Muslim colleagues had taken charge of getting breakfast. I remember an incident, a few years back, where a manager had bought sandwiches for people and had some left over. She asked a Muslim man if he wanted a sandwich, which he did. However, it was ham. Formal complaints were laid against the manager, even though she was being nice offering the spare sandwiches out that she had paid for.

Why is it that certain people expect respect but don’t want to give it back to others? Why is it that when my colleague saw that it was wrong, why didn’t she say something and ask them to put it right? I ended up paying for something I wasn’t going to eat. I gave it to another colleague.

I found out the same day that another colleague had photos of her child torn up. The photos were on her metal box, which a Muslim colleague placed under the desk and used as a foot rest, tearing up the photos by doing so.

And they wonder why people turn against them.

Back To The Grind

Just been on holiday, but it’s back to the grind on Monday.

Had a lovely week down Somerset but couldn’t get any internet connection. Went on one of those cheap Sun holidays at a well known park. Great for kids. Entertainment is great for the kids. The adult entertainment is also more suitable for the kids.

The customer service is not good. We’ve seen a family complaining only to be told: ‘This is what it is. You accept it or you can have your money back and go home.’ We’ve seen people throwing out soiled mattresses as well. I empty the cupboards as soon as we get there and wash everything. I’ve never seen so many food stains on crocks.

We went for breakfast buffet on the day we were leaving, and couldn’t believe the mess. The food was all open with flies swarming around. The breakfast cereal was all over the table and in the sugar. There was a big tank of milk where the handle and the spout were covered with stale and solid milk residue. At the toaster people were picking up bread to see if it was soft, and putting it back if it wasn’t. So they were handling the bread that other people may have wanted. There were ladles with the hot food at least.

The assistants were removing plates but were there was no one watching over the food. It reminded me of a kids birthday party where the toddlers love putting their fingers in the jelly and trifle, and love playing with the cakes before they get something to eat.

On Thursday we had went for the lunch buffet. It wasn’t a mess. It was nicely set out. It consisted of a few salads – pasta, potato – with dishes of cucumber, and cheese. There were some long rolls and butter. The hot food was sausage and chips. This was a buffet. We made sure we ate our full.

Now it’s all back to normal and being at home and work again on Monday.
