HelloHi, u remind me when i was working at hotel. I hated when some cooks called me "fat" ( hey gordo,, gordo do this) ,, i hated it cuz i have good manners and i always say the name how it must be. But i hated it more when the restaurant manager who doesnt know me, told me,, hey "fat" make me pasta with meat. That day i was red like a bull,, i dont understand why do i have "my name" in a pin over my jacket who says: GUSTAVO,, can´´t they read? In that moment i wondered does this manager doesnt know how to treat people or administrate people and with many years of experience. ?Fortunatelly im not there anymore. Other thing, people fel good when someone tell them u do a great job. Cuz everybody has problems, i think when u get an adult u get more problems and more. Problems like: "my daughter is completely sick and maybe wont be able to talk again" , "I cant see my family during the week cuz work" , "i have to work my free day cuz my family needs the money", or what it very sad " i have to eat in the hotel cuz at home i dont have anything to eat". The short time i was in a kitchen (4 months) i could analize workers ,well in Peru most of cooks are poor cuz the sallary is not good.
So when u help other cook, give them good words, its a lot for them, for us.
