Eventually I made the acquaintance of her boss, who took me aside one day and told me in no uncertain terms that her pay was not in the food she was preparing, and he was going to have her terminated if she didn't change her ways. To make a long story short, I had a parting conversation with her boss and told her she had two choices, she could accept my dismissal, or she could quit. She chose to quit. Despite the fact that she had just found out that I was her boss, I took her departure in stride, and despite the fact that I would have liked to continue working with her. I did not want to have anything to do with the food industry, and I made that clear to her when we spoke.
