CNN , Employee Incentives , and a Thought On February
Just a thought but whatever establishment you work in these contests do mean a lot and don't think for a minute no one cares about coming out on top. Management would do well to hold such promotions.
The other day through email someone at CNN contacted me to talk about what peeves a waiter off and vice versa. So we talked on the phone a bit. It is a story they are doing not on television but in the living section of their web page. She did mention she was going to be talking to a bunch of other waiters so whether anything I said will go into the feature article will remain to be seen. Maybe even some of you have been contacted already. It was fun nonetheless. If anything comes of it and it goes on the internet I will let you know.
Just a note on February and it's 28 days. Were any of you out there wishing there was a couple more work days in the month like I was before the bills at the beginning of the month started rolling in again? It is amazing how a short month really crunches the time between one bill and the next. Thus the reason for working 6 in a row. After today I am on 7 out of 8 days so should be caught up by then.
March is shaping up to be an awesome month and with the temperatures hovering around 5 Celsius or 41 Fahrenheit already Spring may be here to stay. Let's hope so!
Keep on truckin'!
