A restaurant in the city of Brewster, in the United States, decided to close its doors for a few hours to celebrate the “day of kindness” with its employees. All to set an example after the bad attitude of some customers.
According to the newspaper New York Times, Regina and Brandi Felt Castellano, the owners of the Apt Cape Cod restaurant, decided to close the doors of their establishment for a few hours last week to celebrate with their employees what they called the “day of goodness”.
The pair of owners of the restaurant, which is located in Brewster, in the US state of Massachusetts, took this step when they saw the abuse their workers were subjected to by some impatient customers.
Speaking to the New York newspaper, the restaurant’s owners explained that the last drop of water occurred last week, when a young employee started crying because of the insults and verbal abuse from a customer because the site is not yet open.
“Although there are many customers who treat us with kindness and understanding, we have seen an astronomical influx of other people daily who do not, who insult us, threaten lawsuits, discuss and yell at our team, making some of the employees cry. This is an unacceptable way of treating any human being”, can be read in a post on the establishment’s Facebook.
The decision to give employees the morning off was aimed at showing them that they too have value as a person, not just being restaurant workers.
“Everyone should be treated with kindness and respect, no one deserves to be reprimanded. We hope that our act of kindness to our employees will turn into a movement of goodness to the whole world“, they said, cited by the website the hill.
