If you don’t get the reference, you’re obviously completely uncultured.
After a second 4-year stint in the same old mismanaged bar, I quit. I’m now officially a one job kind of dude and it many ways, it doesn’t feel very good. Conversely, I’m elated and relieved to be free of The Man’s tyranny in that shithole of what passes for a “bar.” Yeah, I use “The Man” loosely and yeah, I’m bitter – but for good reason. Really, it’s just a very small microcosm – sure. But it was a hell hole none the less from a ownership and management perspective. Completely screwed up place.
Yes, there were a handful of people who truly and genuinely cared about lots of things – one or two folks in management and a couple of F.O.H. staff on the front lines – sure. I’m greatly appreciative of the few worker bees there that always tried to do the right thing for themselves as well as the business (and in turn, customers). I can’t deny that. There are few co-workers who I will miss terribly but most, I won’t.
