I know the entire operation, easily surpassing people who have been there for 7 or more years. I assumed most of the managerial activities merely by filling the void ...

I LOVE hearing stories like this. Accomplishment, in any field, is to be applauded. Congratulations, Thoyd.

I was right! Failure wasn't an option. Only 8 months into it (had a set back when the entire kitchen collapsed after my promotion) and I am one of the fastest tenders out there. Even got a Harlem Globetrotters move I do with beer pitchers and booze bottles. I know the entire operation, easily surpassing people who have been there for 7 or more years. I assumed most of the managerial activities merely by filling the void (or the space left by "laggers" as my dad calls them) and doing the work myself. I helped sack several dishonest employees (nothing pisses me off more than theft by employees who think they "deserve" it anyway) I am the employee that will turn you in, and in a hurry.

And now the owner today told me he wants to move me into management. That could mean a doubling of my doubled income. I think I know why George Jefferson walked like he did! (Also done tasting the world's different alcohols and beer breeds- I sent my liver to therapy.)

Already got the laptop, and bought my wife her dream car. I think a house may be next. Even writing again. 20 years of seeming stagnation can seem like nothing so fast.

Great passion, living as an achiever, awesome results! What can I say, I'm happy for you. :)

You've taseted the various spirits and mixed drinks you make from them? No wonder you're so good.

Im all my years in the food industry, the number three compalint I hear Re bartenders is that they should taste what they use and mix. (#2, "he gives away too many buy-backs"; #1, "I think he's stealing")

Congratulations on your rapid advancement, Thoyd.
