I'm throwing two pizza parties for my co-workers tomorrow
Back story: I work for a largish company, corporate headquarters in Hotlanta, not that that means anything. Just saying where I work ("fast casual" = fast food, basically) has over 550+ locations.

Anyway, today at work I noticed a sign posted on the manager's office door saying starting tomorrow masks are no longer part of the company's uniform; that this was a corporate decision.

Now, it's kinda funny: I got hired there about 2 months ago and so have I have been the only employee there who has openly defied the mask order. From day one, I have refused. I figure if they are going to fire me for that, I can always find another job. Haha, actually my franchise owner has often walked into my area of the kitchen and chatted with me, and has never said a word, even though I don't wear a mask. (I'm apparently very good at what I do, in a difficult, high-stress niche job. Maybe that's why he's been so lax with me. )

Okay, I'm babbling...

bukowski

Well anyway, as of tomorrow, NONE OF US will have to wear those fucking nasty-ass face diapers anymore. And although I don't celebrate most holidays (except 4/20 and Thanksgiving if there are any heady mushrooms around), I am going to spend $100 of my hard-earned money and give $50 to each shift tomorrow -- daytime and swing/nighttime -- to order delivery pizza for everybody to celebrate this fucking awesome news. And I'm also going to write an Open Letter to the employees/management, thanking them for their hard work (cleanest restaurant & freshest-ingredient I have EVER worked in, and there have been a lot...) and also to the owner -- and I guess I might even thank the corporate machinery -- for making this glorious tomorrow possible.

That's all I gotta say. I got 7 Rolling Rocks and a couple of 22-oz bottle of Heineken waiting for me.

Ol' Wharf Rat hopes the rest of you are have already reached this particular plane of rejoicefulness which I am experiencing, or soon will be.

Best of luck -- all y'all GLP guys & dolls rock. ACs included.

We work at a sandwich shop. But I hear ya.

In my OPEN LETTER I already wrote that they can get whatever kind of food they want. I was thinking pizza and wingz, but I don't care. I'm giving each shift $50 to pick whatever they want.

This is my way to say THANK YOU to them for being nice people and hard workers -- which they ARE,

even as young twenty-somethings -- and also to celebrate the awesomeness of tomorrow, being mask-free.

Yeah, I know. But I live in the deep south and things are cheaper here. You could get 4 large pizzas and 2 orders of wings for fifty bucks and still tip the driver 15%. Okay, maybe three large pies.

But that's per-shift, and I'm guessing you don't work in the food industry, because they keep staff numbers low to save money. And also maybe you've never been treated to food by your company (which I'm not, I'm doing this as a gesture as Just Another Guy--which I am) but when you give free food to employees there is ALWAYS food left over because some people just don't want to eat, or there are women watching their weight, or other people who say FUCK THIS and won't take freebees out of general principle.

I get that.

That's why I am saying in my note that any food left over should be taken home or else I'm going to snag it the next morning, on Saturday

That's really sweet of you. Just make sure there is a salad for those who cannot eat gluten. But then again, people who work at a sandwich shop probably don't fall into that category. :)

Definitely. I've already written my OPEN LETTER to my crew, which I hope will be taped to the office door tomorrow, but also a second piece of paper with the words:

"ENJOY!

1) Each shift pick a restaurant

2) Everybody gets something they want (even salads I guess)

3) Eat all you want and take the rest home... Or I will eat the leftovers on Saturday morning. Be warned."

-------
Most of the kids here seem to live on Redbull, Gatorade, coffee and tobacco. So I'm hoping food won't be an issue ;)

Thanks for your comment GA Girl. Go Bulldogs!

They're young, but they're not dumb. They may be filled with you-know-what but I don't hold that against them. Mixed races (I'm actually a minority there, ha!) and mixed-gender, and every single one of them is kind and thoughtful and works pretty hard, especially for that generation.

(I am a 'Millennial', albeit possibly the oldest millennial in the world...just made the cutoff...)

Believe it or not, $100 is about 1/100th of my yearly income, because I make/live off of very little money. I don't have kids, I don't have a car, or a phone... But today when I read that note about no more masks something inside me snapped, and I have to say THANK YOU to these people, and nothing says I Appreciate You like free food. Maybe I'm a sucker. I don't care, I really like these people

Text of my OPEN LETTER:

OPEN LETTER TO EVERYBODY

Today is a great day, believe it or not. And most days at this -------- are pretty darn good, so that's saying something. Please enjoy free pizzas and wings and stuff, y'all deserve it more than you might know. Being a bar-band superhero for most of my life, I have worked in my fair share of restaurants over the years. And even as a short-timer, I gotta this is one of the best.

To the coworkers who share their air with me, thank you for taking me under your wings and laughing at my bad jokes, etc. Thank you for working really hard at what you do, showing up on time, and delivering the goods every single day. You are a special bunch of people, trust me on that.

And thank you management. Maybe it's just me, but Brandon, Justin and Keith are three of the best bosses I ever had: helpful, kind, and understanding people. When I have a problem they always get 'em solved and they give great advice. Take advantage of your time with them -- believe me, bosses like this don't come around very often.

Finally, let's give a sincere Thank You to the people in -------- corporate office. Without them this most excellent day would not be possible.

Cheers to everyone, and Thank You All for everything you do.
(Wharf Rat)

How dare you contribute to the chicken wing shortage.

Instead just throw an expensive hot dog party like Obama did.

Yeah I guess I should have known better. My fault. But I'm not changing the thread title because I speak from the heart, and because today my heart is especially full.

My coworkers are really nice people and I'm feeling very lucky to be alive, and even though life is basically meaningless in the long run it can be pretty nice, sometimes.

I haven't seen anybody in my family in over ten years. My coworkers are like my surrogate family. And a handful of posters on GLP. I hope y'all have a happy Thursday.
