I need to rant a little, and it just seemed appropriate here... because I would like to announce my hatred for the fucking capitalist BASTARDS that now run minnie's. They are the epitomy of evil, money-grubbing, opposite of people-focused pigs. They have no concern for their employees or the atmosphere or community that keep our clientel coming back again and again. They don't understand that every fucking employee has more vested in this restaurant than they EVER will because our hearts are in the concept of minnie's... we wouldn't be there getting bad pay and bad tips, and on top of that taking their shit if we didn't give a fuck about the place and the PEOPLE that work or frequent there. I've never worked for anyone that made me feel shittier or more worthless in my entire life, and I'm only putting up with it because minnie's is important to me and a vital part of my life. We're not going to steal from him because we CARE if the restaurant stays around. We're not going to take their stupid-ass ideas sitting down because we understand how minnie's is supposed to function and we care enough to keep it that way. This is getting longer than I wanted it to... but basically, I hate the owners because they make me feel like shit and they care more about pennies than people. They don't understand that employees keep a restaurant going and if we're not satisfied or appreciated (or TRUSTED for pete's sake) the customers sure as FUCK won't be satisfied. They can tell if there's a fracture in the system and everything isn't working together... we're not dumbfucks and we can't be treated that way.

So I've been contemplating whether or not to keep going to Minnie's. I love the food, and drink Vita like it's water, but I HATE that most of my favorite people are gone and that the air feels changed.

Yes, the air.

So I'm trying to decide: tomato-basil soup and an angry Mae, or adding to those that are trying to bring "New Minnie's" down? Is there any plan in action to stop people from going? Or to change ideas/plans? Or a place that's just as good to go?

I'm so sad about this...I'm sorry you're going through it, Mae. I know it affects you much more deeply than it does me.

well... as of right now, the only plan is for me, once I quit, to make them aware of my plan to buy minnie's back in 10-15 years and try to revive what they are fucking so royally.. but since that's not really tangible right now, no. no plans. It's hard because I want them to leave, but I also don't want minnie's to go down in the process because if it goes away, it's going to be a lot harder to get back than if it's just yuppied-out, you know? I really don't think there's any place that's just as good to go... nothing really compares to the loud craziness and dirty beauty of minnies.

thanks for understanding :) miss you!

Hell yeah! Buying back the place is an amazing idea. I'm sure you'll succeed too - you seem like the 'go get um' type, with the balls to go through with it all. I'd love to see a Mae-run Minnie's!

Miss you too - tell me when you're working and I'll come by and chat/drink coffee.

Sweet. I'm going to (hopefully) be able to make it in soon. I'm booked out with people through the sixth (it's disgusting, I know: I hate it!) with little holes in my scedule here and there. I'd REALLY like to see you before you stop working there though...maybe exchange numbers or something? You're a kick-ass girl who likes tea, and who doesn't need THAT in their lives?!

haha wow... aren't you miss popular. I couldn't deal with it. I haven't made any solid plans to quit yet, so I think you're safe for at least another month. I just can't make up my mind. We should totally exchange numbers... you rock my face off.

Definitely. :) I'll leave mine in a comment below this, then delete the comment (so it's emailed to you but doesn't stay on LJ). What days are normally the best for you? My schedule shifts every two weeks, so I like to plan off of other people's "good days."
