Random Thoughts Today

Throughout the day, we spend our time meeting lots of people in the foodservice business. We have some rude customers as well. Maybe it is time for people to start voicing their opinions about what is going on in the world today. There is so much hate in the world that people don’t know how to be kind anymore. It is sometimes nice to see how many good people there are in the world. However, people that are always angry probably didn’t have a good life. It is crazy to spend your whole day grumpy and act like a fool in public. Being in the food business means you have to kill them with kindness; and not let your emotions show. Sometimes people have a hard time dealing with the world because no one has taught them to deal with it because they do not know how to stand up for themselves.
The ethical standards that we see now are nothing compared to the work ethic that we try to instill into our brains that you had to work hard for what you want out of life. However, that is not the case anymore when it comes to people just not showing up for work, calling out all the time because they want the night off. Being late all the time, being lazy is what the world is going to do right now because this new generation thinks that they should show up and do absolutely nothing but serving and make money. Some people want to work the third shift because it is not that busy, and they can be lazy because no one wants to go above and beyond anymore. Very few and far between when you find the right set of people to run things the way they should.
However, you still have a business to run and making sure that your people are going the extra mile to make sure our customers are happy with the services we have provided them today. When you work for a restaurant business, you get to know the community around your store. Therefore, customers that come into our establishment are the ones we call regulars customers because you learn their names. We spend time learning all we can about the people we serve. Out the people you provide service to is interesting because they have different tastes. People you work with becoming acquaintances or even friends. However, when you are in a management position.
Moreover, trying to get people to work together for their life is like pulling teeth to get people to listen to what you have to say. Then you have some that like to argue over everything that you speak to them. The worst thing that people can say is “I know how to do my job”! Well, you said you knew how to do the job. However, you would do the job the way you should do it; and not complain when you get told you are doing it wrong. How can anyone possibly work for a company one day and already know how to do the job. It is so hard not to tell people the truth about their work ethic. Granted, everyone may have those days where you don’t want to do anything because you don’t feel good or don’t feel like going the extra mile to make sure you are doing the best you can with your job.
Most of the time, upper management does reach out to show or say that you are doing a good job. Some things throughout this world are somewhat hard to understand in the world we live in because people do not want things to change. These days because there is so much going on, no one slows down to listen or watch. People spend most of their time playing games, scrolling through social media, and just not paying attention to anyone around them. You can go into a restaurant and find four or five tables of people who are not conversing with anyone but just paying attention to their phones. Even children have to have some media device to keep them calm so; they don’t bug their parents.
