Out of the Army and now a Sous.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Landed a nice job, pay kinda sucks but with Fridays and Saturdays off... Meh... I can live with it. Now it's time to see how hard it is to get out of army sgt mode. I told chef the kitchen is his but I plan on doing everything I can to relieve him of the excess BS so he can do his thing with management and what not. I'm looking forward to the new challenge. A new menu. Scratch cooking everything for a change.... This is gonna be fun.

 

And I know you are asking yourself "How the f#@$ does the sous get Friday and Saturday off.. Well I dunno but that means I can spend more Time on my 60 Chevy!!

I was actually thinking "Why does this guy leave good pay regular employment, with solid benefits, to be a ordinary cook?"

"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."

I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'.

Ummm three deployments to combats zones.  The benefits are actually better, more time off,  Yeah I'm down about $10K a year for now, but I'll make Exec with this company when I'm ready to. I just need to learn the system and get comfortable dealing with civilians again. Uhh did I say three deployments?

Methinks FlatTop developed a "lead allergy"crazy.gif or decided that 24x7 workweeks are for someone else.

 

Thank you for taking on the three deployments.

I know how you feel, I was in the Navy five years and did three deployments on-board three different aircraft carriers and now I too am a sous chef... I'm quite envious of the Friday and Saturdays off though.

this is funny because my chef is actually a former drill instructor and has been to combat atleast once. I like to think "chef, drill instructor, whats the difference?"
