Well I get a couple days to relax as there was a mishap at work this morning..
I get everything set this morning. My homemade soups a brewing, and my equipment turned on.
I needed some shrimp cooked off so I put a big ole crock pot on click it on high and bring it to a boil..
Shrimp only takes maybe 5 mins to fully cook on a high broil.. And better to under cook them a little as heating them up will fully cook them, and
then you dont end up with overcooked shrimp for our customers..
ITs also important that you drain all the water and put ice over the shrimp.
On my way to dump the hot boiling water into the sink a waitress not watching where she was going gets in my way to the sink..
If you carry hot water you make 1 direct motion to where you are heading dont stop.. It came down to the waitress getting a body full of boiling
water or me..
SO quickly I decided to go ahead and take the brunt of this assult here..
# happens.. She didnt see me and I know she feels bad..
But I now have 2nd degree burns all over my stomach and leg area..
Thank fully I was wearing Jeans and had thick shorts underneath.. So I didnt burn my self. umm down there
But I did burn my stomach with 2nd degree burns..
I thought I would be okay.. I kept on working..
I ended up passing out and my body went into crazy shakes..
I guess my body went into shock.. And I had to go to the hospital..
The waitress felt really bad.. And I told her next time when in a kitchen keep you're eyes peel'ed!! Im comming threw there with HOT stuff all the
time.. And next time its going on her not me..
As a chef I have to make the choice in a quick moment like that to take the pain.. Pain is part of this job.. And now I am out a fulldays worth of
I have off tommorow to regain my strenght..
Ive never been burned on the stomach before.. IT will really take it right out of you.. Ive never been in this much pain in a long long time..
It totally made my body go into shock.. I had no control over that.. And I think thats what really got to me, is that it went out of my control..
Being who I am in there, I must be in control at all times... But # happens.. And sometimes we get hurt doing our jobs..
But I will heal.. My doctor chick is very nice woman and gave me some no stick goss, and some ointment.. I will be okay for those of you who may
I just like being very careful.. But not matter how careful you are, if you work in a kitchen. Sooner or later you will be hurt pretty good..
Its like astroids to this planet.. NOt if, just when..
So I got my bad injury out of the way early on in the game...
Glad thats over..
