French waiter Guillaume Rey plied his trade at Vancouver’s Milestones Restaurant until management decided to bid him adieu after receiving several complaints that he was aggressive, rude and disrespectful.
Monsieur Rey, who was evidently good at his job, doesn’t deny the allegations. In fact, he embraces these traits, seeing them not as character flaws, but rather, as part and parcel of his French heritage.
So, Rey filed a complaint against his former employer with the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal.
Milestones owner, Cara Operations Limited, was hoping the case would be dismissed but they’re learning no complaint is too trite for a human rights tribunal. Dismissing any complaint is bad for the human rights racketeering business.
Even stranger, there might be evidence that actually supports Rey’s claims that in France, waiters are seen not as personal servants, but as food servers with panache.
