What makes Pret A Manger Extra Responsible?

 

Having a face.

And seeing a face in front of them.

Look at these beautiful, clean, rich, white, smiley faces.

Look at them.

Aren’t they beautiful?

Ready to eat?

Just a feast to look at, hey.

They are right now in their homes, or on the golf course, or on holiday in the mountains, or shopping for a new mortgage.

They cradle their kids and chase their dogs. They eat and shit and drink wine, like you and I.

Their wine and their toilet paper is just a little more expensive than yours and mine. Why?

Oh … don’t ask…

don’t ask.

What makes Pret A Manger responsible (and inexcusable in their actions)?

 

Once they got to know me,
once they saw and heard me,
once I had a face to look at,
a voice to listen to,
a feature,
having been a person in front of them,
not just some faceless number far away on the shop floor;
once I was a tangible human being before their eyes
they still, they STILL decided that I was in the way of profit …
and with that, all my fellow human beings that digg’d the dirt for these arrogant people… are in their way

 

You are beautiful, white, rich, educated assholes who spit on those who pay your rent.

Let me repeat.

You are ugly, white trash, lacking emotional intelligence and care, you shit on those who pay your rent.

You are greedy insecure cowards, and you skipped out once the wolves of private equity came in.

You made a decision Clive Schlee.

The decision you made was many years ago, when you and your friends, Sinclair Beecham and Julian Metcalfe got your heads together and had this bright idea that you would be the king of the high-street.

And Clive Schlee, Pano Chrsitou, Nick Davis, David Carter, Lila Warren … I know you sleep well.

You know why I know you sleep well?

Because you are angels of light.

Good night.

I worked at Pret A Manger and survived systemic workplace bullying during bereavement that involved HR, the top leadership, HQ and even the now “retired” former CEO Clive Schlee. I declined 4 settlement offers if I am silent about my ordeal. But I rather starve and speak out to help others. For an overview of important blog entries of my experience with Pret, please visit “My Ordeal with Pret A Manger”. The little arrow to the right next to each heading will lead directly to the post.
I tell my story for the first time verbally in below audio player interview on a podcast by
The Adam Paradox, and wrote two articles in the Scottish Left Review: 1. “Late Night Girl’s” Story with Pret and 2. Pushing Back Against Pret.

Do not judge me

 

I have no excuse to lash out at times like I did, drunk or not, it’s no excuse.

Be perplexed, shocked, annoyed with me, be angry with me, but do not judge me.

Turn your back, walk away, close your eyes, block me, report me, cuss me out, but don’t judge me.

I’ve come out of an emotional and mental hell that is stuff for a shooting spree.

I just write intensely, survived by speaking out loud and detailed.

Don’t judge me.

I’ve been bullied, abandoned, blamed during the worst time of my life. I still blame myself for things that happened during that time. Stop judging me!

I’ve been on yearlong waiting-lists for therapy. Don’t judge me.

I turned away from the Christian belief. No, don’t judge me.

I’m a mess. Just don’t judge me.

My healing way is complicated. Do not judge me.

I dig deep for my dignity, I left it on the way somewhere and judged myself.

Don’t judge me.

Be annoyed, angry, be tired of me, but do not judge me.

Pret A Merde

 

Nothing more to add … EXCEPT pointing out the spelling mistake! That reviewer wasn’t Pret perfect here!

“Oh no! Sorry about that. Could you DM us and let us know which shop this was from?”

Pret A Migraine

 

… I love the creative writing / titles on some of the reviews!

Nothing more to add to this review. I’m learning to keep my posts short, also for lack of time (lucky reader!).

An Unacceptable Level of Fear Culture

 

There’s nothing more to add to this Manager’s review, except that the fear culture is not just in Edinburgh, but is systemic in Pret.
