I'm sorry about Pizza Hut. It's been quite a while since I've had it--is the dough still fried?

From where I'm at, no they actually bake their dough than fry it.
I have second thoughts about the video, since I had a bad week I made it for shits and giggles.

I don't know about these things. Bit dramatic?

What's up? It's just working fine with me.

My Mom has shared her Sirius XM subscription with me. Let me star by saying, Little Steven Underground Garage is fucking awesome (Steven Van Zandt's show) and I advise you seek it out if you have access. But I admit, I somehow have found myself stuck on Dwight Yoakam's Bakersfield Beat Channel which plays mostly Rockabilly and Honky Tonk Country.

Funny enough, I found out Dwight is pretty obsessed with the band The Byrds and even sights and plays "Eight Miles High" on his show. If you don't remember, Tom and Ed utilized "Eight Miles High" as their call back for their Woodstock 99 set.

Also, Dwight Yoakam loves Beck, and even has been on Dwight's show. Tom and Ed have worked with Beck...

C'mon Brothers it's meant to be, let's break new ground. Let's get Dwight Yoakam to lead on a Honky Tonk Psychedelic Acid House Track.

Country music and electronic music not so far fetched... look at Alabama 3 or Cotton Eye Joe!

LOL

To add to the bizarre parallels with Dwight Yoakam, I just heard him discuss productions (particularly by The Beatles) using the mellotron. The guy is really into the artistry of producing and recording.

Worst sick day ever! my boss still made me come in when I called in (despite our Hotel CEO saying "If you're sick, stay home"). I had the worst stomach & Headache ever it kept me up all night.
She tells me to stay until my replacement comes in at 10. Replacement shows up, she makes me stay until 11. I finally strip what rooms I can, and she tells me to go back and stay for 30 more minutes.
Lunch Rolls around, and I come to clock out. B: "Leaving?"
Me (with no voice): "Yeah, its 11:30"
B: "and let your team down, if you leave you're really gonna screw us over."
teammate: "Are you kidding? he's got no voice, been puking in the room toilets and he looks like shit, boss, you have to send him home."
B: "Fine, rest well and see you in 2 days, but don't pull this crap again."

I have awesome coworkers. I took Ibuprofen and a well deserved 3 hour nap.

EDIT: at least part 1 of my Halloween costume has arrived

We had the highest staff turnover this summer and (other than Covid and Unemployment)I'm starting to figure out why.

^What Pooter said.

What a horrible demeanor and terrible managment skills. She's certainly not interested in building a team and has an entirely warped image of what leadership means. Bossing you guys around does not build trust or enthusiasm. Plus, she clearly doesn't understand that in not sending you home she could end up in an even worse situation because you might be infectious and more co-workers could get sick.
She either hates her job and wants you guys feel as miserable, or maybe she's stressed out due to the last 1 1/2 years (to give her some benefit of doubt?).

I was surprised, though, that you have collegues who spoke up in front of her. What a rare breed these days.

Worst sick day ever!

Conn6orsuper117 - That is completely unacceptable behavior and expectations from your employer, and it was unsafe for you, your teammates, and the guests. Based on the story, I'm also pretty sure you're not in a position to report it to anyone that cares or can help. What a nice world the "take this job and shove it" generation has left for the rest of us...

As a manager and supervisor, your boss is only concerned for himself, and is impervious into being a team player, He's an ass! First off, know your value! and while your still there, shop around for another job that will treat you much better. There's tons of jobs out there with better pay, and you have an advantage. And when you do quit, make sure you document what happened to you when your boss forced you to come in when you were sick and send that shit to corporate, and if any, put that on their social media.

This is up there. Like, Star Guitar up there.
