The Manager isn’t coming back this summer. I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand he was crazy as shit, but on the other hand he dished out repercussions for bad behaviour. But then, all the things we got in trouble for under his management might not be as important now. New rules may apply and the people who are breaking the old rules might be less annoying if the old rules are no longer enforced (or ignored). Does that make a bit of sense?
The owner hired an elderly woman to be an assistant manager today. She worked at the restaurant before and has spent her whole life in food service. I’m sure she will bring new ideas with her and it will be nice to have a change of pace. I just hope she’s ready for our young crew. We are a handfull.
The big news is Darren was promoted to General Manager. I’m very proud of him and the changes he’s made in his life. He has a huge responsibility and he has done well with it so far. As long as he doesn’t stress out and start chasing servers around with a knife, I’ll be happy. I hope everyone can help him succeed because in the end we will all succeed.
Now if I could just get rid of my overwhelming desire to chase customers around with a knife…
From my “I Hate People” file…a few nights ago when my daughter went to work, she discovered someone had crapped in the hot tub. This is at a nice hotel, so you would assume people would be on their best behaviour. This is yet another reason why I hate hot tubs and swimming pools. What is wrong with people?
