I work in a restaurant that serves food and alcoholic beverages. We carry bottled beer because it’s easier to serve, consume, and throw. It was a usual day at work when I served a table of two a bucket.
Our SOP is that we will serve the bucket already then will open for the customers on the spot ma, so I did that, but when I try to open the bottle of Heineken, I not sure why but it’s harder to open than usual.
You say ham I hungry
So I just use more force, but as soon as I did, the lip of the bottle broke off and the force used resulted in the bottle cutting off a small slice of my finger. This is not the normal scratch or what leh. You got see how people slice Christmas ham before? With the big fork then slowly slice a thin piece. Ya just that the ham was my finger.
Blood dripped profusely and I had to get some tissues. I apologized to the customers and told them I’ll get a new bottle for them in awhile and darted off to wrap my finger.
For context, only my boss and I was working that day and he was talking to other customers. He noticed the commotion and the trail of droplets of blood leading to the bar counter but he continued chilling there. For the whole night, the blood didn’t stop dripping even though in my free time I applied pressure to the wound. We didn’t have plasters either so I was stuck with tissues for the evening.
Bye bye for a bit
Yet, My boss decided it was okay for me to run the store before telling me he joining his friends for drinks elsewhere for awhile. What to do, suck it up and continue working lorh. At some point I was feeling lightheaded and was a little worried, but luckily most of the customers left already so I sat down to rest for abit.
In the end, I didn’t go A&E cause I figured it shouldn’t be that bad, but now also healing already. But really, this kind of boss ah… I don’t know what to even say about him..
