After I quit the bakery(literally the night before they opened the lakeview location) I knew I never wanted to step foot in that crazy house again. And after hearing all the shit talk Michelle had to say about me I knew if I went in there it would be a problem. So I had my fiance pick up my last checks so i didnt have to. Well we had these awful uniforms, they looked like diner dresses and cost us all a $100 deposit they said we would get back when we returned them. I waited 3-4 weeks after quitting to return them simply because i was dreading it. And after hearing my old coworkers couldnt get their back pay I knew i would have to deal with crap when i finally did return them. Well the day came when i knew i had to suck it up and go over there for my deposit. I walked in and the girl i had been trying to fire since last year was working ( she was unreliable, a liar,cheated on her timecard,and kissed michelles ass to get away with it) I gave her my 2 dresses and apron, asked for my money and got the heck out of there.
About an hour later i’m sitting at the bookstore decompressing and get a voicemail from BHB. The worker says “I just spoke to michelle and you werent supposed to get that money, you just stole from us and im calling the cops if you arent here before we close.” WTF?! I call back and ask what the hell is going on, thats my money, i returned the uniforms i got the deposit back. She insists michelle said she gave it to me weeks ago (never happened, and 4 weeks earlier i was still working there so? hmm) and that i just lied and stole from the company and shes calling the cops if i dont return the money. I felt like I was in a soap opera or something, this crap just doesnt happen in real life. I never did anything wrong to this woman, i stuck with her even when i was working for free, getting paid shit and staying 16-18 hours a day, listening to her bitch and moan and share super personal marital info all the time.
I started getting texts from the worker basically counting down the time until she called the cops, I text Vinny and told him what was going on thinking stupidly he would stop this crazy shit cause hes the normal one right? wrong. he told me i had to return the money asap and that texting him about it was disrespectful and rude because i should have text michelle instead. right, you control all the money business and are an owner but i shouldnt talk to you? alrighty. I checked my email and michelle had already wrote a page long email to me about how i stole from them, shes calling the cops and how in one of my checks i got paid $12 an hr and that added up to $100. I got paid that much because I was a manager and thats managers pay for every manager in any location we had.
I couldn’t deal with the harassment so i went to the police station and told them what was going on. They said she never called them and to tell her to cease and desist contact with me. well i did that and she stupidly emailed me saying there was now a warrant out for my arrest because i stole her money. lol seriously? well talked to the police again and yeah there was no warrant and she never contacted them. you would think it would stop there right?
After she was done harassing me she apparently went after the only friend i had left there, accusing her of being a narc and telling me inside info. This person after i quit never told me anything that was going on over there and besides that the last thing we ever want to talk about in our free time is BHB. It sucks that Michelle can scare her workers though so much to the point that now this person barely talks to me and it just isnt the same. Its hard to let go of all the pent up anger and bitterness i have for this place. It has completely changed how i view new jobs, anything out of place and i get leary about it thinking they will fuck me over just like BHB did. There should be a support group for all of us since this completely fucks our heads up.
