The right to "RANT"

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 
With all the "Ranting"going on here these days I thought that the idea of a colleague of ours was a good one. This is the "offical"ranting thread.

For me,My day was really crappy,

Everyone wanted everything from me all at the same time with no regard for what I was dealing with,Clients wanted menu ideas for April,staff wanted to know how come there checks were not in today as the human resourse director snuck out the back door.
ETC,ETC,ETC
:mad:

So when you want to rank...come over here and blow off some steam :)

Hey, this really works!

CC, I'm sorry you had a crappy day. So everyone wants a piece of you. Just imagine if they didn't? You'd probably be bored....

You want what for how many pesos???

Hey folks happy holidays and great rants , CC yours is truly refreshing on how feelings can run sometimes in the back of the house . Yes everybody does know our jobs better than we do
and we should be able to preform miracles at will . Human resources is another word for a wallflower from what I have seen of most of them . All I know is when I was a younger chef I used the walk in as my verbal warning box and as my personal outlet for frustration . In deep space ( and the walk inn ) no one can hear you scream . Remember that we have some of the toughest jobs emotionally that there is . Everybody we come in contact with wants somthing from us , especially our employees . I remember when I was a little younger one of my responses was
" you know they actually pay me to run this kitchen and cook food" Do not despair for you have stayed the course to long to let an off day hurt you . Remember that we are the backbone of this industry and in the famouse words of Mick Jagger Hey Hey you you get off of my cloud . Talk the talk and walk the walk , who can stay our destiny?

Wierd thread.

Older people would say that the ultimate cure for such situations is to go visit a hospital or a jail or a court of Law and have a look of what "Bad situations" really mean...

But what about a good healthy shout at those that make you angry? I mean really loud. Example : Shout in NYC and being heard in Montreal :D

Okay, I admit it, I get serious road rage.

Yesterday I hit an hour of traffic on the highway. WHY? Because people had to look at an accident on the side of the road. Why are people so nosey? They shouldn't stop if they're not able to help.

And what's with these jerks in the left lane who either don't look in their rear view mirrors, or don't care that someone's trying to pass? You'd definitely think I was a nutcase if you heard what goes on in my car when I'm upset.:mad: :)

Thanks CC, I feel much better...
post #10 of 57
Well this is where I belong, I've always got a 'rant' brewing (I guess that's not a secret anymore, ha!). Craziness and demanding situations don't make me rant. NOT BEING ABLE TO FIGURE OUT "WHY", does. Wanting to help but not being able to help DOES also.

WHY owners don't care about anything but their bottom line?
Why they don't see their staff as something that can dramaticly help their bottom line?
Why they dictate to their people and never consider dialoging?
Why most places are threatened by the words, staff meeting?
Why don't they want imput from the staff that sees the issues and might have creative answers to help with problems?
Why they hire managers at all, then they tie their hands?
Why not hire a secretary instead?
Why they set limits and allow everyone to break them?


Why a 50 hour work is NESSASARY?
Why more one more person on staff wouldn't be a better solution that working who they have to death?

I read your posts complaining about your jobs or jobs in general and think aren't you all lucky to have job problems. I would trade place with any of you in a second.


Life is a funny thing, often you want what you can not have anymore. You never know how much you appreciate certain things until you loose them.

Is the need to rant a female experience? I wonder....in my little life I notice the men around me seem to be better at verbalizing their 'compliants/non agreements' through out their day. Could some of us females be too polite to say what were thinking? So we build into rants? NO, I'm not that polite..........hum.....

Or is it the perfectionist who rants the most?

Actually I think I do it so much here because their isn't anywhere else to do it. It's not approprieate at work. My freinds don't 'get it' and you folks do. Best of all, you can get insightful feed back from insiders here.

Come on Freud....

P.S. Say what James? Also, do you mean a good dirty ***? Or a good dirty ****? Big difference, ha!

I have to RANT about the sales managers that think I can pull a chocolate wrapped cake out of my but-t last minute in the middle of Thanksgiving rush--about not seeing the sun the last 4 days and feeling like a vampire this afternoon --about having Carl's Jr. as our Thanksgiving dinner since I was too tired to cook(Okay, it was either that or canned soup).
Thank god I have my kung-fu classes ---good vehicle for my aggression and my sparring partner loves it when I get rough!;)

Oh, James....you're not really Freudian, are you???

I am so disappointed.

sigh.

Gee, Anygrychef, if you DID pull a cake out of your rear, you could tell the sales managers it was chocolate... :eek:

Hey Bond this is a thread for rant and not a poetry board.

You have my deepest sympathy Jim. If there is one comic strip I can not stand it's Dilbert. Working with a real one must indeed be **** on earth.

As this is the ranting thread. . .I had a man who came for a chair massage for TEN minutes and wanted me to do a chiropractic manipulation!!!! I mean do I ask McDonalds to give me fresh, Scottish organic salmon!!?? No I take what they offer, or i go somewhere else! But i got my revenge :p I did everything with my elbow except pirouette (I can't spell that) on this mans shoulder (now that would have been a sight to see. . .). Do you know how you chefs feel when someone wants a Cordon Bleu meal made to their own recipe but paying McDonalds prices? Well that how I feel today. he went away happy though. . .I suppose I gave him Cordon bleu on the cheap. Yipee;)

1) I'm not that talented.
2) My butt is not THAT big(they ordered a 14" cake).
3) They wanted white chocolate.

the question is just how close is Bond in his minds eye view of the cheftalk contributors?

My only rant is that I want the holiday season to be over so that I can get some rest.
OK I have one more .... Is my Blazer invisible or do they just don't care that they are cutting me off?

Unforunately Bond might not be too far off from my description. But it's my eyes that give my emotions away not my brow. Does he also know what color they are? If he gets that right first guess I'm looking for the hidden camera.

Common Angry.....how about the manager who asks you for a b-day cake for every employees birthday (on the day of the event) when you have a million other things to do.

or the freind who has a b-day party for you and asks you to bring your own cake (I had that happen before)?
