Hello all, poring-kun is here. So I just got back from my restaurant, and I want to share my story in the restaurant just now. We have been closed for 3 days now (usually we still open, but only from 5 PM in Ramadan), and tonight is fast breaking (buka puasa) together with my workers. It's pretty much a normal dinner, but it all changes when a sudden impulse hit me. Cast : me =me, senior workers= sw, workers = wk The conversation is pretty much like this : Me : everyone attention please. Now that you're all here, I want to say something. SW1 : what's the matter? Me : to tell you all the truth, I can't let you all works anymore in the restaurant (until Ramadan end) After I said that, some worker's face turned pale Sw1 : really? Me : yes. I will close the restaurant (until Ramadan end). I will pay all of your wage this month and I will pay for the tickets for all of you to go to your hometown. After I said that, some of the workers cried, especially the women. But some senior workers gets what I'm talking about, and rather than trying to calming the crying women, they made it even better SW2 : but I have family here (meaning : I'm not going to go back, I'll stay. Please give me money instead) Me : (not sure if he gets it or just asking) I'll give the one who stays in Jakarta money instead SW3 : (wink at me) sir, please, I don't have anyone, can you consider it? Me : (realized that some of them get it) no, it's final At this point, there are around 8-10 people who are crying. Some silent, some wailing. Some just standing with a blank face. One senior worker who get what I mean can't stand it anymore SW4 : what are you guys crying about? (Loud) Wk : I mean we're fired, I don't know where to look for a job anymore to pay my uny SW4 : what boss mean is that he is closing the restaurant until Ramadan end, and you can enjoy Ramadan with your family. So stop crying damnit Now they're confused Me : SW4, you told them too early, it's no fun SW3 & SW2 : that right SW4 : sorry, but its getting annoying to hear them cry After that, we resumes our dinner but with some who's still crying. Note : before I came back, I apologized for my joke Thanks for reading. Anybody have any ideas for what should I do to them next year?
