David, glad you stopped back in to let us know how things are going. IIRC I mentioned before you left that being a restaurant manager would be a LOT like teaching. Loved the story about the grill cook, btw.
Anyway, good to hear from you. Let us know when you get that promotion.
If you can, I'd be interested in knowing what restaurant chain it is. A PM would keep it secret, and I promise I won't tell (no, not even you BeSee)
