Yesterday I was fired from my job because of a man who felt offended and intimidated by a strong young lady. I had been a server at Red Lobster for the past 4 years and six months and the gentleman complained because he said i had rudely and aggressively asked him to wait. I know this is only a one side to the story but I felt I did my job and I did the right thing by asking him to wait in order to fix his problem and get a manager. The man didn't have any complains about my service because I didn't give him a reason to complain only about my way of asking him to wait. I felt my strong voice as a women offended him, which I had no intention of.He filed a complain to a manager but it wasn't enough for him for what I had done. He wrote a letter to corporate and asked them to fire me because of my aggressive attitude. My point in this story is the man felt offended because a woman had " aggressively" asked him to wait. Being aggressive is measured in different ways among gender because of the way society has leveled this characteristic for females and males. Females should be passive, delicate, calm and weak. While men are taught to be aggressive, strong, and powerful. My aggressiveness as a female was defined as being rude, impolite, and disrespectful, while a male's aggressiveness would be defined as strong and with much respect. A misunderstanding of communication because of the way Hispanic society measures aggressiveness got me to loose my job. I tried to fight my side of the story but among restaurants the customer is always right. I have no hard feelings because the situation was seen from one perspective but I have learned from this situation.
