Moral Dilemma- Some outside perspectives would be helpful!
Hello, all. This is actually a sad situation so I'm going to try and interperet as sensitively as possible. I am the Executive Chef at a new restaurant that just opened in May. The three owners and myself are the only employees here because they think they're saving money doing it all themselves. Needless to say it has been extremely challenging. Here's where it gets problematic: one of the owners is morbidly obese to the point where he cannot even fit through the kitchen doors, and cannot do any physical labor beyond bartending. Every day that he works, he brings me an employee meal ticket to make him a bacon cheeseburger and garlic parm fries. Foods like this are why he is the size that he is. I feel that by cooking him stuff like this, I am enabling a very lifethreatening condition. I desperately want to tell him no whenever he asks for fried/ heavy meals, but he is an owner and I need my job. I get angry inside at him for not doing anything to alter his lifestyle or habits. I've talked to the other owners about it and they've said there have been many attempts to get him to change things. I don't know if I could live with myself if he dropped dead after eating somerhing unhealthy that I'd made him. Any advice?
