Was thinking of hiring a helper a while back so I could have a week off. Think is, I'm not even a "chef", just a cook doing just about anything in a coffeeshop but sign my own checks. So, I don't even have a dishwasher and the back had to be set up with the space I had so even if I need a second pair of hands when slammed there is no way to make it work.
My thing is, I know the guy, know he can even cook (probably better than me) but, he turned me down because he couldn't stand the idea of washing his own dishes. Been talking to a cook across town because I know this place will close fairly soon and he was shocked that I do everything. And well, started treating me like I was 2nd Class after this conversation so, wouldn't take the job from him at double the pay.
Anyway, am I the only cook that has no problems cleaning up after myself. Give me a break, after a rush not only do I need to basically scrub everything it's also calming. It's something you have total control of and well, don't have to worry about some pinheaded customer complain (like the cheese in a grilled sandwich being I don't know, hot and melted...)
Well, off to sharpen my knives and get ready for lunch,
