Something crazy has happened.
Other than my usual life, because it's always crazy.
Lately, I've found myself enjoying being at work.
I haven't enjoyed being at work for at least 6 months if not longer. But the past couple of weeks haven't been so bad. I think it all started with the fact that we got a new manager.
He's changed a lot about the OG that I work at. It used to be that people came in with a smile on their face and within 10 minutes they were in a terrible mood. Now, people walk in with a smile and that smile stays there even as they're walking out the front doors. I'm not saying that we're constantly happy because well, guests can still be dicks and it's still a restaurant, but for the most part, I've noticed a happier atmosphere all around.
I'm not saying our old manager was terrible in any way. He wasn't, it's just that his attitude toward everything made our attitudes shitty.
And this quote, is more than true. This guy came in with a smile and a great attitude and he hasn't let it down since he started.
I guess I'm just saying that I enjoy my job right now. I've made more money since he's been here, I laugh more at work, and my body doesn't hurt as much as it used to. Although it still hurts a shit ton.
So remember, that sometimes, all you need is an attitude adjustment. Or maybe somebody around you does. It can get better. It should get better.
