RESTAURANT WORKERS DUMP ALL THEIR WORK TO 16 Y.O PART TIMER WHILE THEY GO SMOKE

I’m 16 turning 17 this year and waiting to start school in poly, so i took up some part time jobs. The recent one I just quit really made me damn pissed off. I work at a restaurant in a shopping mall, and I’m the only part-timer there amongst all the other adult full-timers. But they’re all super irresponsible and push all the jobs to me?? Like during rush hours (especially lunch & dinner periods), all of them disappear to smoke, go toilet etc. I’m left alone to serve all 20 tables by myself and I cannot even stop to drink water.

Once, I had to get the bill for a customer, but I had no idea how to use the cashier till. I left the customer at the cashier area for about 10 minutes while I tried to find the other workers at our break areas and even the toilet (which is like a 5 minute walk from the restaurant), but I couldn’t find anyone. Like seriously no one. So I had to try to figure out how to use the machine and get the customer to pay for the meal.

Unfortunately, I used it wrongly and technically didn’t charge the person for the meal at all (which technically I feel isn’t even my fault since nobody taught me to use the stupid thing and also nobody was there to help me when I needed it?? Like why would you leave a part-timer who only started working 2 days ago alone at the restaurant??) I admit it’s my fault for not figuring the machine out and asking for help beforehand, but isn’t this totally unreasonable??

My assistant manager even scolded me harshly the day after (in front of customers btw), even when I already apologised so many times and offered for him to dock my pay to pay for the meal. He even purposely asked me to eat my lunch in the stock taking room whereas the rest of them ate their lunch outside. I’m pretty sure he badmouthed me to the rest of the employees too. I feel like this is so unfair to me, especially since all of them literally disappeared, leaving me alone to fend for myself. Furthermore it was my first F&B job, so I wasn’t very familiar with the trade yet. Anyway, I quit the job after a month, I really cannot take the toxic environment. If I ever work in F&B ever again, I hope it will be a much better experience than this one.
