Work Sucked

Yesterday was filled with a series of errors and miscommunications that all equaled a suckin' muchin' day.

But I still want to go back today because I love cooking.

Add to it, there's something thrilling about when things go smooth on the line, and everyone is communicating.

It just clicks.

And now I understand why professional cooks in Hell's Kitchen get confused and make stupid mistakes.

While I'm a long way from Hell's Kitchen, I have a better understanding of how kitchens work and more important, how I work within them.

Time to grab my cleaver and get back on the line.


  1. Sometimes, girl, stuff happens no matter where you work.

    (And the Swedish Chef is running through my head. "Bork, bork, bork!")

  2. Suzan: All part of the hands-on learning process. And that Swedish Chef, he cracks me up.

  3. I think it's all your own fault..........

    after all you did post it all clicked just one post before.

    Hope you cick back to the good stuff


  4. Sorry your day sucked, but I am totally laughing at the Swedish chief picture and your line about grabbing the cleaver and heading back to work...conjures images of chasing chickens, which of course is hilarious.

  5. You can do it! Just start singing along with the Muppet Chef.

  6. I'm sorry you had a sucky day at work, Happy :(

    But I love the Swedish Chef!!!

  7. Ian: Yes, just as I get used to my ping pong schedule, I have a crappy set at work.

    But good news, tonight was WAY better.

    Daisey: It made me laugh when I wrote it, so it's good to know that someone else laughed too.

    Alex: Excellent idea.

    mshatch: Thanks, today was way better and my reward is an entire day off tomorrow.

  8. I hate days like that. I am in a middle of a month like that

  9. Melanie: An entire month? Yikes.

  10. It's rotten when one thing after another starts going amiss....

    Bork, bork, bork, bork....
