I know that I am behind on posts and I will be doing my best outside of work to catchup on lost content.
I am fortunate to now have a new roommate. He is a gentleman from the establishment in Florida where he worked as a prep cook and dishwasher. He came up here as a mercenary, someone that will fight for Chef and her team. That’s what they call me as well. Ella’s has been hunting for dishwashers for quite some time now. Although hard to believe, it really is a hard position to keep filled. You can read about the art of dishwashing here.
He goes by the name Woo, his childhood nickname. Woo started working at the The Perfect around the same year I did. He started as a dishwasher and was being trained on grill station. He also was taught a large amount of prep so he was a solid team player. He was the yes man; If you told him to do something he got it done.
Woo is quite the character. He likes to make noise and that can be anything. Sometimes its high pitched squeals other times his baritone voice booms down the line. Woo is a fairly well established rapper in his community. He has his own recording studio and was starting to collaborate with local artists. He is a very religious man and goes to church every Sunday. Every year he hosts an event just for kids, where he pours multiple paychecks into a day fair just for kids. This includes bounce houses , free food and entertainment. “I like kids because they are the future.” In the kitchen he is a “manimal”, his quote not mine. Half man half animal. Woo moves around getting tasks completed all while singing or rapping. He is never in a bad mood and is always eager to help.
When he’s not plowing through prep he works the dish pit. And he can sling pots and pans faster than anyone I’ve seen. The first day on, one of the novice dish washers came up to me and said “I’m getting rekt with dishes, I can’t keep up.”. Just on day one he was turning heads. He’s a great addition from team Florida.
I personally hold Woo in an extremely high regard. Every day I learn something new about him. He tells me the craziest stories about his past. Each day he would put a smile on my face. Woo definitely made work fun. Down at The Perfect Caper he would talk away telling me about his rough past or something new he saw. He is a sincere, genuine and nice person. I always have enjoyed working with him and I consider him an excellent friend. I honestly am extremely excited he is now playing for our team up here.
