The most important person
In my job as a cook, the customer is the most important person there is. My customers are the reason I step into work everyday despite the low wages and hard working conditions. Knowing that the work I do makes people happy, is what being a cook is all about. If money is what you are after, then maybe the most important person isn't the customer, but yourself or people you have to support, and the cooking business is not for you. In this business you work hard for little pay, inflexible hours, and no vacation. Satisfaction comes not from the money in the bank, but the regular customers, the customers who just have to tell us the meal was good, and the people I talk to outside of work who say my restaurant is great. Without you this job would be worthless. Thank you to everyone who ever goes out to eat, you have made me or another cook out there happy.
