"LIVE YOUR DREAMS."
Never settle for less. Being a Deli Manager for 16 years is not the business. Dealing with the drama of my crew and thier laziness topped with their lack of effort is a giant headach. This job has slowly forced me into having carpal tunnel in my hands and knees due to the fact that as Manager I have to run a profitable Deli. So when my crew wants to decide that they forgot how to work or call in with little or no notice. I as Manager have to run around like crazy handling all the stations in my department to pick up the slack of my so called workers. So not worth it. Thats why I say go to school pick the career of your dreams so you can wake up and be excited to start your day and no matter the ups or downs, you know it will all be fine because how bad can a dream jobs day get. So bottom line Live Life and Be Free and Happy.
