I was so sick of having no cutlery to put on the and i was sick of ass wipes telling me how to do my job. How do you ever survive on 6 hours a week. So i said fuck this, this job is stupid and this business should be demolished.
That business put the last cafe i worked for out of commission (out of business). I worked so hard for that cafe for 16 months before it shut down. In the end the cafe was falling apart, the managers insulted my adversities/didn't give me the oppertunity to be a waiter and the unqualified cook was a disgusting pig.
A month later i got hired as a Kitchen hand at a local Bistro. I worked there for less than 2 months before abruptly stepping down last week in a peaceful way. Even though i really hated my manager he was a nice man in some ways
I had to leave that business because they saw me nothing more than a Kitchen hand and i do not want to be considered an Kitchen hand. I have so much talent i have gained allot of it just by working behind closed door in a private location away from public eye.
You can give a dish washing job to a refugee, an new immigrant, some one on a student visa or someone that doesn't want a career or a life. But you cannot give a dish washing job to some one who washed dishes for 5 years and didn't move up until the 5th year in the industry.
My CV simply goes Kitchen hand > Cook > Store Person > Waiter/ Food and Beverage attendant. That is what you call progression and that is how you move up in hospitality.
From this day forward, i will never ever see myself as a dishwasher hell i will never even accept any dish washing job that has been offered to me. I am a Waiter, a Food and Bev attendant, a man with customer service and a writer as well.
All of my ex employers who couldn't give me the chance to be a waiter all i can say to you is UP YOURS FOR NOT GIVING ME THE CHANCE!
If you are stuck being a dish washer in Australia i demand that you get out of your shithole and go find work in a better location. You will not move up the ranks in a small shitty business. You need to find the opportunity in the monster business that makes your local cafes, bistros and resturants look like dog shit!
