Working with the Tao

This is me at my place of work, prepping food for the line ~ never mind where.  A lot of it is really boring, since I'm not actually in the back, I'm cooking orders and carrying an incoming order downstairs and elsewhere.  But it serves to convey to some what sort of work I'm doing.

Just out of curiosity - was the first knife too dull, or was there some other problem with it?

Brings me back a bit to watch parts of this; I grew up in a family business that was an inn/bar/restaurant.

The balance is just off. It's a Henckel, supposedly expensive - but while I like the company, that specific knife is just wrong. Dull I can deal with.

Reminds me of the last kitchen I worked in: the place was divided between two floors and it was super cramped, so we always had at least one cook on the grill and one in the basement. Weird layout, but the chef knew his stuff so we had a great menu. Still, glad I'm not there today. The work is honest and good; it's just not for me. Not enough mental stimulation throughout the day.

Thank you for the insight.
