The day I left school was the day I went into the restaurant industry full time. It was the same day that I was reminded what they teach at school is only so narrow.
There was no way school was going to teach me how to handle a lunch rush of 100+ meals in 2 hours.
Also a very low chance of learning how to handle a 200 item menu and calmly communicate with an upset customer at the same time.
There are an unlimited amount of things I don’t know, and I think that that’s an incredible thing.
