In honor of Mother’s Day on Sunday, here are a some quotes from a few members of our team about things they learned from their Moms.
Ryan (Morning Prep Cook): Fruits and vegetables as snacks instead of junk food. I wasn’t such a fan as a kid. In fact, I thought it kinda sucked, but now, in my line of work, I completely understand. And it’s created a solid foundation for my affinity for fruits and vegetables.
Kevin (Line Cook): Be self sufficient. Learn how to do the important stuff yourself.
Jeff (Line Cook): Be grateful for what you have!
Anna (Admin): Home is where you get treated the best but act the worst. So it serves as a little reminder to treat your nearest and dearest with love and respect. Especially when you least feel like it!
Sam (Server): Be kind to everyone. You never know when your paths might cross again and people always remember those who treat them with kindness. She also always reminded me to be nice to the new kid. Everybody is new somewhere at some point and a little kindness goes a long way.
Essam (AGM): Keep your cool. If you’re quick to anger, a situation might escalate faster than you anticipate so cool down buddy.
And from my neighbour growing up, who felt like an extra mom, she recommended the airline safety code. When the masks drop, you have to help yourself first to be in a position to help others.
Temi: Look for the positive. Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, you can always find a positive. The world is an easier place to be in if you choose happiness.
