I am no longer working at The Bistro.
Ever since the book deal was announced in August I felt my time at The Bistro was limited. To be honest, I was getting sick of the place and they were getting sick of me. My stress levels were going through the roof and my patience was running out.� Besides, after almost seven years, it was time for a change.
My last day was several weeks ago. I decided not to write about it on my blog for my own well being. I needed to give myself some space. My last day was full of anger and bitterness. It took a while to get my mind around what I was feeling. I needed time to put my emotions into perspective. As each day passes I realize no longer working at The Bistro is a good thing.
Waiter Rant will continue. I will get a restaurant job somewhere else. I will continue to blog about the food service industry.� Come to think of it, it’ll be interesting to write about being the new guy at another restaurant. In the meantime I’m busy writing my book. That consumes a lot of time and energy.
I want to extend my sincerest Holiday Wishes to my former waiter colleagues. To the bus people and the kitchen staff you guys are the best! Feliz Navidad y Feliz Ano Nuevo!
I want to thank all the readers who made Waiter Rant such a success in 2006. Without you guys none of the good fortune I experienced this year would have happened. Thanks for reading and letting me share my stories with you.�
Now I’m going to enjoy Christmas and New Years as a civilian for the first time since 1999! That’s gonna feel so weird!
Merry Christmas everyone.
I’ll be back soon.
