The men I work with!
Thirteen things about Eaton
I work in a male dominated Italian restaurant and some of those men I love in a myriad of ways, just because of who they are and how they respond to me as their workmate and friend of four years.
I borrowed the idea from My expressions LIVE! blog, he did a TT last week on what he loves about women. I'm not following his lead exactly because it would get me in trouble, being a married lady and all. So here is my adaptation of his idea and my dedication to the 'loves' of my working life.
1....N, because he forgave me 30 seconds after I told him I had put a big dent in his car with my car.
He makes me laugh when there is absolutely nothing to laugh about.
2....LB, he is a sweetie and always ready to help when things get frantically out of hand, which they often do.
3....AC, treats me like a person, not a mom or grandma, even though the age difference is huge.
4....BB, laughs at my jokes and actually thinks I am funny, I really love this guy.
5....R, crazy non English speaking dishwasher, always has the biggest smiles for me.
6....C and R, kitchen hands that always have time to ask how I am and tell me about their lives and ask about mine.
7....Pizza delivery boys, friendly fun guys and such amazing eye candy.
8....T, my boss and the restaurant owner, the most patient, understanding boss I have ever had!
9....L, the person I take my frustration out on and yell at, if things are not going well.
10..A, my manager and friend who took the risk and employed me anyway. If he was reading this he would know exactly what I mean.
11...RD, the boss's son and the sweetest, most helpful, optimistic young man... really handsome too.
12...Those of you who have come and gone, your friendship is remembered with gratitude.
13...Last, but most certainly not least...S, the most amazing Chef and the craziest perfectionist I know. Also the most exasperating person I have had the pleasure to work with. Your Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde personality has driven me to the brink of violence, but as my friend you have my heart.
Four years with these men isn't very long in the scheme of things, but in the Hospitality industry in Australia, it is equivalent to a lifetime. And to the man who inspired this TT, your acceptance and friendship means the world to me. Love ya!!
Happy TT! :)
