Employee Party Turned Great!
I went to an employee party that I wasn't sure I really wanted to attend.
I ended up having a great time, and getting a bonus, I surely did not expect!!
I was surprised that the kitchen staff was fed first, and then we all got called to the "corner" which I thought was a very bad thing, thinking we had misbehaved or something LOL!! Then to my surprise and all my fellow cooks as well, we were all handed a bonus and thanked for being the backbone of our restaurant!!
My pride beamed, not only for me, but for my fellow cooks as well. As much as I try to say that I am not a manager, they all remind me that I really am.
I was once the Sue Chef of this crew, and they all still see me as that, which I am grateful for, but I feel a bit of sorrow for the new Sue Chef.
He really works hard, and works with me and our head chef to make sure everything runs smoothly.
I know you are all wondering why I gave my position up, but I was having some very personal issues that detained me from preforming my professional expectations.
Personally, I feel much better being just a cook lol, not as much responsibilities! I still make the soups and lunch specials, and run my shift, I just don't have the title anymore. I am good with that.
All in all, I had a great time at my employee party, and got an unexpected bonus in the end. I work with the best bunch of guys a girl could ask for!
