There is outrage about the case of the kebab shop owner who carried on making kebabs whilst the body of a dead employee lay on a sofa in the rear of the kitchen. There has been so much outrage in fact that the owner, one Mr Jaswinder Singh, 45, (I'm not sure his age is pertinent to the story but hey now you know) has been banned from ever catering again.
So now they have closed his Pappu Sweet Centre in Wolverhampton (England) and given him a fat fine for his troubles too.
The dead employee was said to have died from natural causes but I'm not so sure. I mean there must have been some environmental impact on the poor chap what with all the smoking and rats and what have you. And lets face it Mr Singh doesn't seem to have been the most caring sharing employer.
But there is another way of looking at this story. Instead of castigating and chastising Mr Singh maybe we should be holding him up as a shining example of good service. I mean there was a dead body in his kitchen yet he carried on preparing and serving his customers. Not for one moment did he let the fact that his work colleague and no doubt chum had passed away get in the way of stuffing kebab meat into a pita pocket. I mean I cant tell you the number of times I have had to go to my tables and apologise for delays due to the chef having injured himself or something. But death? Death would close our restaurant no question. But not Mr Singh, he worked through the mental anguish of it all.
That, ladies and gentlemen, is the sort of service that gets you crew member of the month in a KFC and yet he finds himself out of pocket and out of business. Shish, the worlds a tough place for a man who only wants to serve.....
Of course he could just be a very dirty man.
