    Why bosses are that way.

    So I have a cook who's worked for me for about 6 years. His performance has been noticeably declining over the last couple years. He's been hitting the bottle heavy and his wife gave him the boot. After a busy Saturday night where he got his ass kicked he quit. He called me the next day and begged for his job back. "I have to work right now or I'll go crazy!" So I gave him another shot. He still drags but we pamper him in hopes he comes out of his funk. We try and support each other.

    He quit at 2:00 Valentine's Day afternoon. Well, at least he called?

    I deported 8 of my cooks once, bastards!
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    One's that have been carrying his ass for the last year!

    It also meant I was working the line.

    I almost forgot how good I was. Almost.

    Sounds like he is struggling, but still...after six years? And after being given a second chance? On Valentine's Day? Pretty bad. Why burn this bridge on his way out?

    He's not thinking about bridges right now. One of the reasons I kept him on was to keep an eye on him. We've been through some stuff and I worry about how deep and dark his depression is. If you know what I mean?

    Even though he screwed me my standing order of "call me if you start thinking about doing something stupid", still stands.

    I would be worried too. He's lucky to have you as a friend. When do you start auditioning new cooks?

    Too bad the d-dub didn't leave. I've seen you sort spoons.
