A fast talker. We got to talking about drugs and AA and NA and the program. Apparently he is still using. I’ll keep my distance from him. And just as a side note, I thought he was this great worker, well, he’s OK but he got tired just mopping the small gym. I’ll give him a break because he’s 52 years old, but man, I’m 60 and I’m used to vacuuming and mopping a big gym and a small gym by myself and he got tired just mopping the small gym by himself.
Worked with many in my life. You can pick em a mile away but sounds a solid plan to keep your distance. I am friendly but at my later jobs I wasn’t looking for friends and that works with work for me.
Thats the best thing to do. I did the same to my previous friends who used drugs, even weed.
Well, if he is new to this occupation he’ll need time to toughen up. I remember my first month working in a dish pit. I was growing a lot of new muscle by the second month.
I got fired after my first month in dish pit
It’s an intense job in a busy restaurant.
We were a very busy restaurant, imho it was probably a 2 person job just based on volume. Oh well, life goes on. That was like 4.5 years ago now
When I did the dish pit they wanted me to go so fast. So I told the manager there’s no way he could go that fast. So he went in and did it super fast for 20 mins.
Then when he came out I said “well I bet ya couldn’t do that for 8 hours”
You learn how to optimize your “workflow” as it were. I was absolutely flying by the end of my first month.
Yeah I flew too, I flew out of that job it was my short stint as a prep cook.
I was really good at test tasting the mashed potatoes, prime rib and the shredded mozzarella
You’re a wise man.
Maybe he will find the job too strenuous and leave or he will fail a random drug test.
Do you guys have random drug testing ordered by employers over in the US? We have pre-employment and random drug testing here.
Not at my job we don’t.
What’s a “dish pit”? You mean being a dishwasher? Never heard it called a “dish pit” before. Then again my last dishwashing job was in 1988.
