I tried to make my relationship work while my GF sells nudes but I just can’t do it anymore.

Unless it's the restaurant industry, where having to be fucked up at work is a feature and also how you wound up in a kitchen

You ever worked in a kitchen where there weren't a whole lot of substance abuse problems? It's the industry most accepting of burnout addicts. Basically the best job if you're Someone who can't hold down a job due to always being faded.

And I'm saying this with all love for my BOH homies. best job ever before I got sober.

Maybe some places are horrible to work but the kitchens I've been in have been chill, easy work and people still come up with excuses. I'm the only sober one at work much of the time, the job is so chill and lacking in responsibility it's like a paid vacation from real life. It definitely attracts people with underlying substance abuse problems, seems like the "stress of the job" is a good cover story. I love em but I swear I've never seen some of my coworkers sober.

Who said they were horrible to work in? I mean they are, because it's hard as fuck underpaid work, but they're fun as shit. You haven't lived until you've breaded and deep fried someone's work shoes lol

Haha sorry, I meant that the same folks who come to work faded complain that our job is crappy and difficult. It really isn't, it's the easiest job we can get with fair wage, off-hands management and good perks. Their substance abuse has nothing to do with the job itself but that's what some of my coworkers blame it on, instead of seeing that their problems stem from elsewhere.

Damn, sounds like you're in different types kitchens than I was. Places I worked were hard as fuck and stressful as shit and you regularly had to call the labor board on because a lot of fine dining establishments are laundry ops

Yeah, I definitely get lucky with chill kitchens. I've also had harder jobs that paid worse tho so I'm not phased by stress. Summer camps teaching 20 kids alone for 10 hours lol, animal husbandry/farm work, elderly care. Even on the crazy and frustrating kitchen days, I'm lucky to be employed and fed and not responsible for keeping someone alive, there isn't anything worth complaining about.

u/Perelandrime May 05 '21

Oh noooooo that does sound horrible lol. My coworkers would cry and leave and I'd be slowly humming along doing one ticket at a time out of spite, you can't pay me enough to rush like that 😂 I'm so sorry

Yup. It's a nightmare industry. And once you clean up that industry-and-dealers-only social circle you have cultivated really isn't fun to hang with anymore
