New Job Update

I've been at the new job for a few weeks now. I'm still liking it though I think the honeymoon is probably over. Here are a few things I've done:
  • Learned how to get pizzas in the oven intact and in a mostly round shape fairly consistently.
  • Had to go back to using the scales for salads because I was making them too big.
  • Two more lessons in knife safety while I sliced potatoes and chopped rosemary.
  • Cut my finger doing the much easier task of cutting bread with the serrated knife.
  • Found that I'm just not a fan of fresh greens on a pizza. We made (while the local farmers had it) several pizzas with fresh arugula on them. Yuck.
  • Singed some hair off of the back of my left hand and arm. 700 degree heat will do that.
Things I still need to do:
  • Perfect cooking the pizzas and especially cooking more than one pizza in the oven at a time.
  • Learn to tend the fire.
  • Stop crushing on the Sunday morning day pizza guy and his pretty eyes.

I just landed here randomly, but found your posts to be very entertaining. For whatever it's worth, I have about a dozen people that work for me in IT, and I wish that they had half of the enthusiasm and positive attitude for their work that you do.

Question - if the order is $35 and I want to tip the driver $5, is it ok to give 2 $20s? Or does the driver prefer exact bills?

Alex: it doesn't matter if you give two 20s and say "keep the change". At the end of the night we aggregate all of the money that we've received and pay the store for the cash orders minus gas reimbursement and tips.
