I just came out of a meeting with my contract administrator and he said something like "we know you have a big ego, but we'll work around it."
I don't walk around the kitchen acting like I can 'do no wrong'. Nor do I talk down to anyone. I have admitted mistakes and defended other staff members in need. It seems like the other chefs I talk to get the same 'ribbing' from other people. What gives? If we pull off a good meal, we can't 'high five'?? We can't relish in the warmth of a job well done?
Well, I'm ranting... but don't we spend as much time in school and interning as a Doctor!!
