I Guess That I Am Sort of in Charge Now

It is not as though it makes much sense, I am a 19 year old college student trying to make a little money this summer before I go back to campus in the fall. I have been working at this really nice Italian restaurant, or at least it is a really nice place if you have the money to eat there. In the kitchen you have to deal with the boss, who is pretty much a maniac. Since I have been there he has fired three other guys, one for not getting someone to do grease trap cleaning in NJ just yesterday. That was really a big deal, but it seemed to everyone else that he was the one who was ultimately responsible for getting it done. James is a little older than me and he barely speaks English well enough to talk on the phone honestly. I am not sure he really understood why he was getting fired. He was really good at running the kitchen and I have a feeling he will eventually be running a big kitchen if he can overcome his shortcomings in dealing with people.

I have actually learned a lot since I started working in this place back when I was a sophomore in high school and I was the dishwasher. However the main reason I am running the place when the boss is not here is that I speak Spanish and English, both of them really well if I say it myself. That is really essential, you have to be able to communicate with all of the people that work here. Luckily for me, all the guys in the kitchen know what they are doing and they seem to work better for me than the boss. He is a really good chef, but I am certain things work better without him and his attitude.
