I had strep last week and now I've got a nondescript illness

Basically I hurt all over and I have a a sore throat and I'm exhausted, naseous, and have a headache that feel so like my head is full of poorly mixed paint.

I don't want to get up at ten pm for nine hours of hard labour. I just really f*cking don't.

But I called in sick last we and I want a damn letter of reference and I don't know what the f*ck to do

Can't you take a doctor's note? There is not much you can do if you are sick...

Suck it up, butter cup.

Sometimes when I feel like crap getting up and moving makes me feel better.
Go in and let them see how miserable you are. You can always leave early.

I already had a docs note for the strep.

I called him (he is very sick too ATM, more eve. than me I think he's feverish) and I'm just coming in later for a reduced shift.


I know I CAN call in sick, but I really want an extremely glowing letter of reference for when I eventually do my red-seal apprentiship.

I hate everything

I literally can't.

I'll be there til the next baker comes. Leaving would be...unthinkable.

It's just such hard work. I have to left really heavy stuff (

Flour bags weigh 50lbs, and dough boards can be almost that, and that is the vast majority of my job - moving stuff

It's just non-stop running around and lifting.

Last night I took like five five minute breaks, and I think I've never taken more than 2 before.


We don't get lunch.

I mean you're allowed to take a lunch.

But it's not gonna work out for you.

Bread proofs and bakes on its own time.

Screw it up? Stay late to make more and get knocked for wastage.

Hahahahaha, lunch breaks in the cooking industry. That's cute.

It's not a job you can do if you aren't tough physically


Night shift makes it worse




Sooooooo happy I'm movingly to pastry. Day shifts, more creative products, and lighter work

Talking to my friend Mike who lived in ptbo

He's bitching about not eating well because he's too lazy to cook.

I told him when I move up there if he wants to split the grocery bill 30/70 I'll cook for both of us and give him half in Tupperware twice a week.

Good idea?

What does "lkr" mean? I'm really bad with those things.

I am asuming Mike is paying the 70% part?
1 month ago - Thursday 9/21/17 - 5:03:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
I know right

Ho yeah

I figure it'll help both of us - me with money and him with being a malnourished lazy ass

Sounds like you have the flu
Can you pump yourself full of flu meds? That should help with a lot of the symptoms

How much will 20% of the grocery bill add up to be? Is that worth you cooking all the time and tupperwaring all these meals? How much additional time will you have to spend cooking for him on top of the time you would have spent cooking for yourself?

It's a brilliant idea, and I actually have two friends with similar arrangements, but the one being cooked *for* made some calculations and realized the friend doing the cooking was essentially earning like $4 an hour for their labor because they underestimated the cost.

It takes bugger all time extra time to cook for two instead of one... In fact, it's usually easier. As for putting the food in containers. How long does it take you to dish up a meal? Minutes?

Is that where you learn to club seals?

We haven't worked out the numbers yet, depending on how it looks it may be more than that.

I just buy a whack load of that cheap IKEA Tupperware.


It doesn't take extra time to cook for two people really, and this way my food bills are subsidised and I'll probably end up being able to afford nicer meals - like actual cuts of meat several times a week as opposed to splurging on some mince or stew bones on a Friday.

It's not a bad deal for him either. I mean, I'm literally a chef by trade. A 30-40% markup on groceries in exchange for home-made professional-grade meals? Not too bad.

I thought that would be the kind of deal I'd get when Dad moved in. He does cook all the food, but... it's not incredible food... tasty, sure, but, not incredible.

Like, dinner last night was two minute noodles, frozen veggies, a tin of tuna and some coconut cream/milk all mixed together.

Again, it was nice, but not chef level food...

But the older I get, the more I realise that he's only ever been a pub chef, and that is basically one step above cooking for yourself at home.
