Barbiestylez: Try working in the ER for a while. We deal with the drunks after they leave places like yours and get in fights, get beaten by the bouncers, crash their cars, punch the walls, fall down stairs etc.

Nothing. You couldn’t have done anything differently, you were basically just a bystander. I would maybe have called the cops myself, earlier in the chaos. I’m surprised you guys didn’t at all!

Barbiestylez:  Oh my god… All over $10?! People should not be leaving money unattended on the table anyways. Glad to hear you weren’t hit with the cigarette!

Barbiestylez:  Honestly, what I would do? In the actual situation, probably not much differently than you did. Immediately after my shift, however, I would have quit and resolved to find a workplace without that type of clientele.

Maybe I am just a wimp, and I know you run risks literally just leaving your home every day, but I couldn’t handle working in a place that has a high(er) chance of putting me in direct contact with people like that. I would have really feared for my safety, never mind had serious issues controlling my anger over being treated so disrespecfully. 

You always seem like such a sweet girl — I’m sorry you had to experience something like that and I hope it or worse does not happen again.

Edited after your update: So the club prioritizes “not bringing a spectacle” over your safety? Maybe I am overreacting, but no job would be worth this to me. A guy out of control and out of his mind and an equally deranged wife could have done much worse in the absense of your bouncers than flick a cig in your direction. I’m hoping that that kind of an incident is a major outlier and you’re usually quite safe.

With management that cares more about the appearance of the club vs the well-being of their actual staff?  I would quit.

Barbiestylez:  I edited my above post regarding your comment about how the club prioritizes it’s appearance over your safety, because that to me is pretty appalling, before I was able to read your response. I am REALLY glad to hear you are generally safe.

It’s admirable that you work so hard and are able to do so much on your own (I’m working on my own startup biz right now too! cheers!). But again, no job is worth putting yourself in danger or subjecting yourself to being treated like crap routinely. I’m glad it’s serving you well right now, but also that you aren’t planning on being there forever. 🙂

Ok. Well if you care more about money than your safety – then I guess the club is a fit.

But I thought you were asking what we would have done in your shoes.

Barbiestylez:  good thing you weren’t physically hurt.  the nerve of some people just over $10.  sometimes that’s what happens when you add alcohol.  instant idiot.

i worked in a bar many years ago and i worked there for a long time.  i saw it all.  nothing surprises me anymore.  oh, the stories i could tell.
