Being my friend's 33rd Birthday a group of us headed down to Strawberry moons at 11:55pm - 4 pretty girls & 2 boys. No one was younger than 24 & we were all respectably dressed. The club was half empty and playing house tunes, whereas we were more interested in Abba type cheese. The woman on the door was so rude & when we enquired about the music policy & a possible discount as it was half empty, she got right in my face pointing her finger at me yelling that it was her club, she didn't have to give a discount & called security to remove me.
Since I was literally standing there with my hands in my pockets being really chilled (God I wish I could post the CCTV footage!!) the security guy told me to just go into the club as he didn't want to kick me out (since it was half empty he obviously had a better business sense than the woman on the door)
My friend stayed at the door & asked the woman if she was okay. She said she was in a mood because she was the General Manager of the club & she had been "stuck" on the door.
Well, THAT explains everything! Her EGO was too huge for her to be polite & friendly to the customers paying her salary!
Little did she know that in our group we have 2 General Managers (1 that works for the Gordon Ramsay group - you could imagine what he'd do if he found one of his management team treating customers like that!!)

I don't want to blow my own horn but yesterday 1 of my flyer girls let me down, so I took the flyers round to the local businesses & to people in the streets myself. I was really friendly & not once did I throw a strop that I had to do a "menial" task.
To be treated like a criminal by someone faced with the same task (on the same day) because she has a bruised ego was more than a little insulting.
In this credit crunch there is a very high calibre of General Manager looking for work - she'd do well to rememb
