Katie Little got furious when she started getting messages from a restaurant worker after applying for a waitressing job at Frankie and Benny’s in Orpington, London.
The 17-year-old girl said that a member of the staff took her mobile number from her CV and then started sending her messages. She took to social media to share the screenshot of messages and a conversation shows the man’s opening message which reads: “Hey gorgeous x, how is life treating you?”
Katie then asks the man’s identity, asking: “Do I know you?”
The man replies: “Think you applied for a waitressing job? You still looking?”
Katie was not comfortable with the unwanted messages and she posted the conversation with the caption: “I applied for job as a waitress for Frankie & Benny’s.”
“He has just text me saying ‘hey gorgeous x hows life treating you’ not indicating anything about the job until I questioned him who he was.”
“I wanted to share because I find it very inappropriate as my CV has my date of birth clarifying I am only 17 years old.”
After seeing Katie’s post, one woman claimed that the same guy had contacted her in a similar manner. She sent Katie a screenshot of messages from the same number which shows the man tried to contact her repeatedly even after not getting any response.
Katie’s post went viral and sparked outrage for the man’s creepy behavior. One woman wrote: “That’s actually disgusting.”
Another added: “He shouldn’t even be using your number that’s terrible.”
One fumed: “Unbelievable nonce like behavior. Predator tendencies.”
Another said: “He has no right to use her details to make contact other than work related. He also clearly knew how old Katie is and although, yes legal, Katie is still a minor.”
“I wonder how many young ladies desperate for a job have been taken in by this vile excuse of a man. I do hope this is brought to the attention of head office, so it’s dealt with properly.”
A spokesperson from Frankie and Benny’s said: “We are aware of these extremely serious allegations and are investigating the matter.”
“We have a zero tolerance policy towards this sort of behavior and will take the appropriate steps pending the conclusion of our investigation.”
