After Patrons Were Abusive Apt Cape Cod Closes For Kindness Day For Staff
I have been seeing online a lot of people who work in the food industry, especially the servers, have been getting. a lot of flack from customers coming into their restaurant and treating their staff very badly. Brandi Felt Castellano, the owner of Apt Cape Cod posted this on Facebook
Apt wrote on Facebook on July 8, saying they would take a day to deep clean, train, and treat the staff to a day of kindness.
“Please remember that many of my staff are young, this is their first job, or summer job to help pay for college. We have had to make adjustments due to the increase in business volume, size of kitchen, product availability and staffing availability, we are not trying to ruin anyone’s vacation or day off.”
Not everyone has been abusive customers and folks showed an outpouring of love and support to the group at the Apt Cape Cod.
This is just not happening here, other beach towns and tourist destinations have reported dealing with more entitled, abusive customers. Staff at Pop Pop’s Pit BBQ in Myrtle Beach say it’s gotten so bad they now read agreements to customers before they order, stating that patrons will be asked to leave if they’re rude more than once.
Unfortunately, customers everywhere seem to be taking it upon themselves to be jerks to food service workers, whether it’s scamming restaurants for free delivery, or complaining about maintaining safety protocols.
As a customer, you should first of all never treat another human being so bad and two they do have the right to refuse to serve you.
