take that odeon!

I've finally quite the Odeon. After over a year of caring and putting in effort to a job where my boss clearly had no appreciation for his staff, I quit. While the working conditions slowly got better and the returned to worse again, it wasn't really that that did it in for me. The owner's lying, and inability to even understand he was lying was the end. It's one thing to lie to customers, one thing to cheat people out of money. He's greek, it's what they do. The lying to and about his staff, staff that only ever tried to help his business was the final straw. Silly man, you can't pretend you're telling the truth when I WAS THERE for what happened. I quit at 2am on a day where I made $300 in tips. It was awesome. He proceeded to lie about how I quit to remaining staff (Oh Nick, will you never learn...). I did feel really bad for the new manager and went back in for one 1.5hr shift where I trained someone and showed her a couple things. However, I am free! It's wonderful. I still keep in touch with all the wonderful people I worked with (80% of whom have also quit, 10% who are in the process of finding a new job) and I never have to work there again. Take that Odeon, I hope you go bankrupt before the Junos.

Are all Greek men who own restaurants named Nick? Is it a pre-requisite to opening a restaurant? Or are the Nicks the only ones who survive?

Eat it, Odeon!

I'm so glad you're away from there...

no, some Greek restaurant owners are named George, Jimmy and John. Nick is more common cuz they are usually bigger pricks, thus they stand out more.

that said, are the owners of the Odeon even Greek? The original owners were but I thought the "new" owners were a bunch of cops who bought the place for "cheap". meh, how would I know? oh, and do I care? not so much.
