Our ‘Can Think’ Cafeteria - Final
Continue from previous post....
For cost saving, some cranky ideas floated up, hiding the fish and chicken under the vegetable or rice, group 2 types of vegetables in one tray compartment, press and compact the dish, confuse the casher by piling up all dishes and rice into one big mountain heap, show Hollywood acting like poor & miserable and finally choose the ‘kind hearted’ casher that charges less.
After paying, we choose a nice cooling place to feed our stomach, here is the time where we can officially & openly talk face to face, in the office, we chat online or thru intercom.
We break-fast by asking how much is the food? Comparison on price and sizes, we were 10 times more ‘aunties’ and ‘uncles’ bargaining and calculative over every penny spent. Or was it a sense of victory for having to pay less?
Dining at the long McDonald-like table, seated closely facing each other. At times, the chicken drumstick or wing shall work on their kung-fu kick by flying to the opposite food tray. Fish bone remover by mouth is a no no, caused there is no bull eye for splitting and it would landed on neighbour hand or tray.
There was once, we brought our customer to dine in our cafeteria, we used to keep bones and other food residue in ‘our’ empty compartment instead of leaving & dirty it on the table, the customer observed and did the same thing - not in his tray but in our tray.
After meal, we need to clear our own tray by separating the utensil, food residue, glass and bowl, good practise just like schooling.
