I worked at the salon Saturday and Sunday this weekend. Summer has again asked for time off. She has to go to Syracuse this weekend. (See: Sun Stories – Summer – Return of the Outlaw)What I have learned from my beloved Summer is this: She is an amazing employee when she’s here. Picking up the system? Instant. Attitude and service. Yes. Sales? Deadly. She’s never had a job before this and is great at keeping the place clean and is my favorite hire. I love Haley more for personality and giggles, (See Sun Stories: Haley – 2016 to Present – Lightning in a Bottle) but Summer is simply brilliant as a professional at the salon.
But lately there’s been some drama in her life. Her grades and school are solid but lately she has been slipping. Achilles doesn’t like that.
I’ve worked a few of her shifts and she’s called out and Achilles has had to work from open to close. I know that shit doesn’t fly with the king.
He’s put up with this nonsense from employees for over 10 years, so his fuse is really short with these girls.
He tells me how he would have fired Summer last Monday when she called out 2 hours before her shift from NY because her transmission fell out of her car. She was 4000 miles outside of her service plan so her dad is going to pay $8500 to fix that and he is furious.
I love Summer, and she’s great at the salon. But her family is rich and she doesn’t even need this job.
Her social life and responsibilities and drama are over taking her life here. I think she’s fed up with working here and with Achilles.
I love her, but sadly I think she has to go. I never wanted to say that because she’s been a brilliant hire. But she doesn’t need this job. I think she liked it better when it was busy and she and I worked together as a team.
Her dad gives her $200 a week and she has access to his credit card to go to New York and live the rich life. Summer doesn’t live in reality. I really like her here but I need someone who has a real passion for tanning, looks the part, and can sell and clean.
I think I have found that girl.
You already know who she is.
I’ve already talked to Achilles about a double blaze for this baby, He’s already expressed his dissatisfaction for Summer for being such a failure. He hates people calling out!
I draw up a schedule of hours for my new object of desire, Kita.
Lets see how this plays out.
