*Disclaimer* There will be a little bad language in this post. I'm sorry.

Today, I go to work and I'm all excited because I really love my job. When I get there I clock in, request two days off, seat a customer and grab menus. Then my manager pulls me aside and tells me that she has had a few complaints from a server that I am not wearing deodorant and that I smell. WHAT!?!?! She then told me that she needed to send me home.

I take two showers a day, wear deodorant, and body spray. Who would be saying this about me? I then looked around Iggy's to see if I could spot anyone looking at me. That's when I saw that server who hates me and he was smiling all mean like and doing a little wave.

The reason why he hates me started about 2 weeks ago when he came up to the hostess stand and told me how to do my job. I told him to tell a manager and have the manager tell me because that is how I was trained. He got all butt hurt and walked off. I then told a manager what he had said and done and the manager told me that he would take care of it. I thought, Okay that's the end of that. Nope.

Last Friday was crazy busy like all Fridays are. I was running around bussing tables, and seating people as fast as I could. I was walking by his section and he steps in front of me and tells me not to seat his tables anymore because he wanted to go home. I told him that i couldn't do that and I tried to walk off. He stepped in front of me again and told me not to seat his tables and again I said I couldn't do that. Then it happened, in front of his customers he said to me "You are such an Asshole!" Then stepped on my foot and stormed off. I went straight to the manager and told her what had happened. She immediatly told him to do his sidework and then go to her office. I just went about doing my normal stuff and forgetting everything that had happened until today.

After she told me that she didn't want to send me home and that she was sorry I left Iggy's in tears knowing that I only have one shift this week because of him. He screwed me over. I feel so miserable right now. I am the nicest person at work and I only tell the managers if I need to. What he did was uncalled for and it made me so upset. I love my job and I don't want to quit but if this guy doesn't leave me alone I may have to so I don't go insane.

I'm sorry everyone, I just need to vent and I need advice. This is so hard on me.

Sounds like a sticky situation. I'm just glad you didn't name names, or be too negative because that could cause a riot like Sarah's blog. NOT GOOD!

So, just work hard. Put a happy face on. WORK and make customers HAPPY!!! They will comment to managers. The more comments you get, the better for you.

I would make it a matter of prayer.

Also, my mom always told me to "kill 'em with kindness." No retribution necessary.

Don't let any one Bully you ever! Don't let someone else determine your worth. Stick up for yourself when you feel in your heart your right!!!! He has no right to harasses you. Be strong, Be professional, Be kind but most of all be you and stand on a firm foundation that doesn't allow for others to walk over you....EVER!!! Make sure whatever you do is something you’ll be able to look yourself in the mirror after and smile! Love you!
