As much as I want to high-five the shit out Frank right now, he’s finished. We’d ALL like to punch anyone who orders a double-martini in the face, but in the service industry, it is your job to take shit, and never, ever give it back. It’s why many people loathe the service industry. And sometimes you reach your limit and might give some attitude, but usually it manifests itself in the way you look at someone or in the harsh, “THANKS,” you give them when they inevitably tip you poorly (asshole drunks are often cheap). Those are things that will earn you a begrudging write-up from management and will preserve your self-respect. But when you go and call a girl ugly and threaten semi-violence to a customer, you are indeed cruisin’ for unemployment.
Frank heads in for the meeting, and Lisa interviews that she is PISSED. I believe her. And she has every right to be – she says that she spends a good deal of time and money creating an atmosphere for her restaurants and Frank has peed all over that by being aggressive with a customer. Also – not for the first time. Apparently he was inappropriate with Kyle from ROBH at one point, and was disciplined for it. Uh-oh… pattern of behavior… She asks him to give his side of the story, and he explains the first part about the ordering of doubles. Lisa cuts him off and clarifies that it is (I assume) Sur policy that when someone orders a double, an extra shot is put in the drink, and the customer is not charged double. Eeesh, Frank. My restaurant has a different policy because we like to make doubles prohibitively expensive so as not to attract douchebags who order them. However, it’s tantamount to stealing to charge someone a different price than what your restaurant says you should. DUH.
The two then hem and haw about the particulars of what went down until Lisa finally shames Frank into admitting the wedgy comment. She slams him for it and basically fires him immediately after that. Frank tries to end things on a positive note, but Lisa cuts him off and tells him that he can give his girlfriend the message. I assume that’s a thinly veiled remark designed to warn Stassi to clean her act up, too.
Too bad Stassi has bigger balls than Frank and actually stands a chance of winning an argument with Lisa.
Frank heads out back where Stassi is waiting to take him to meet her parents (ha!), and Frank spins a story of colossal bullshit about how he took the meeting by the horns and gave Lisa the truth. Are you SERIOUS, Homey? She ate your ass for lunch.
Stassi’s really upset as she and Frank head to lunch because Frank is now not just a bartender, but an unemployed bartender. At least Jax was an unemployed model. Also, now she has to work alone with all the “crazies.” Or, you know, her friends.
