I am in the middle of moving house and I think everyone dislikes this process as much as I do. However, there is no way around it. Soon it will be just another move.
On the upside, I have seen the benefit of the many services available when you move and couldn’t help but think or compare the services that are used with the services we provide in our business of cooking. We service the needs of our customers.
Indeed, when we were homeless for a couple of days, we found the local pub to be excellent for down to earth meals and service that made us feel at home. So many other services that we take for granted, just like we are taken for granted in what we do.
The guys who moved our furniture were amazing – they were four brawny guys who took so much care of our precious personal stuff; their service was brilliant. Same for the guys who came to take away the excess rubbish – again another excellent service. Nothing was too much trouble. And then there is the changing over of services for the new home…the electricity supplier, water provider and so on.
I guess the main thing I got from this whole adventure is that we are in the hands of people who provide services and that reminded me of all the years I cooked and worked in the industry, I was providing a service that my customers were there for. Just as you are now.
And if you want to know if your service is appreciated how about the fact that Luke Mangan has just received his OAM for recognition to all the service he has and does provide to the industry. Well done Luke and congratulations.
