Work kicked back in the day after I came back from my holidays. I returned to utter chaos and it saddens me to say it's still far from normal. The restaurant has been turned into a building site. Builders knocking down walls, building new ones, digging up floors and all the noise and dust that goes with it. I wore earmuffs to work on two days. It's a bloody restaurant!! The owner seemed very concerned about the aesthetics of a dish collection trolley that had been left on the restaurant floor overnight, but didn't seem the slightest bit bothered about the mess the builders were creating. Most of the dirty/noisy work has been done now, so things can only get better.
Or so I thought. There's a lot of things our owner wants to get done. And he wants most of them done yesterday. Can you feel that? It's the muscles on you neck slowly tightening so that your shoulders are getting hoisted towards you ears at the rate of about 1/4inch per stressful day.
All is not bleak, though. I have a bottle of wine. And some doritos. Comfort eating? Me?
