Don't Order the Cabbage Rolls
So apparently, I actually have a "steady" job now, so no more uncertainty, which is nice. It came about a rather bizarre way. A couple friends and I went out the other night to shoot some pool, and on the way back stopped at the Boston Pizza for a midnight snack. While sitting in the restaurant, we noticed that it was taking an AWFULLY long time for them to get to us. To the tune of a whole hour for a plate of nachos and a coupla beers. I was ready to walk out after about half the time myself, but (fortunately) the others wanted to stick around.

When the server finally got to us, she mentioned that she was exhausted, as the kitchen staff had disappeared earlier, and so it was just her and the manager doing the cooking, serving, bartending, everything. Half-jokingly, I asked if they were looking to hire replacements, and she responded, "well... actually..."

The long and short of it being that I'm now a cook at Boston Pizza, and can remain there for as long as I desire. Whoa. It's the 5PM to 2AM shift... mixed feelings about that, but whatever.

Serendipity!

*floored*

What luck. Wish I had some of that.

I echo earlier comments, which BP? I want to know so I can avoid it from 5PM - 2AM for the next few weeks while you learn the ropes. ;)

Neil's gonna hate this -- someone else voting that "No, I don't want to eat at Boston Pizza!". Unless there's an employee discount involved?

The one in New West, a couple blocks from the Skytrain Station. And there's nothing in the Cabbage Rolls. They don't serve cabbage rolls. It was just random subject line goodness.

You're back in B.C. and you didn't let me know?

Tsk Tsk. We have to hook up at some point, I've got some questions regarding your stay in the UAE.

Oops. Yeah.

Kept meaning to drop you a line, and kept forgetting.

Speaking of which, where are you these days? I gather you left Nanaimo, and are back in the lower mainland, but where? I assume not at yer parents' place...

Do you have a phone number? (I mean, I'm sure you do, but what is it? email me!)

Keep in mind also that the job at Boston Pizza keeps me occupied 5 nights a week (my shift changes on a weekly basis, so my days off aren't constant). So I don't have a hell of a lot of free time.

But yeah -- we'll have to work around that and get together some time!

I live with my rents, yes.

I'm attending college which involves that I'm busy 5 days a week too.. My number is the same as before, if you want to call me, I'd rather not post it on the net though
