Serves you right for being an asshat and stealing customers away and Hurting his business. He hired you to do a job and you took advantage of it. Did you really think you were going to get away with it and have no consequences? If you did then well, you were moronic. My god man, you are a Disgrace to all of us that have taken up the Knife and have thrown our hearts and Passion into our food. I hope you have learned from this experience. You have noone to be mad at but yourself.
No kidding dude. No wonder so many businesses never make it when people like that screw them over. It's like he thinks he's entitled to steal - like he's above ethical behavior. Hell, Criminal behavior.
