Justice is served!
There is a restaurant near where I live that got its water shut off once because they didn’t pay their water bill. The restaurant had to temporarily close and opened up again a couple days later when the water was put back on.
Same thing happened only a couple weeks later except with their electricity instead of water.
And then when the electricity was shut off, the water company shut off the water again for bill payment problems. And by “problems” I mean that the restaurant wasn’t paying their bills.
After this happened, the restaurant workers started picketing the place because many of them haven’t been getting paid. I guess for some of them, they hadn’t been paid in months (who would stay in a job where they weren’t getting paid for months? I think the word for that is slavery).
And then, the owner of the restaurant was evicted (the property belonged to someone else), which involved the police to make sure he took what was his, and nothing more. I’m not sure about the reasons for eviction — but let me guess… lack of rent payment??
So, why am I telling you about this restaurant getting shut down?
Because in my very first ever blog post (awww, the memories), I told the story of when I did a snow plow job for a local business. Short story even shorter, after I plowed the restaurant’s parking lot, the owner wouldn’t pay me because he said I didn’t do it right. I got a little bit of revenge (which you’ll have to read the story to hear), but all I could really do was shrug the thing off and know not to plow for that guy again.
And wouldn’t you know? The same restaurant owner that stiffed me for plowing his parking lot is the same restaurant owner that just got closed down for not paying bills and employees!
How’s that for justice being served?!
Note: I’d say it sucks for the employees that now have to find new jobs, but it sounds like a lot of them weren’t getting paid anyway!
