I don't know how many of you watch Master Chef, but you would remember Josh. He was 7 foot 2 and was just a nice guy on the show. He could cook too.
It looks like mental illness and easy access to a gun ended his life. Very Sad.
I'm a chef, and I'll tell you what, very stressful job. Before where I am now cooking in franchises such as Applebees, Ruby Tuesday, TGI Friday,
etc.... they only pay minimum wage, no respect for their employees, and make you work long hours with no breaks. In factories and most jobs, you are
required a break for every so many hours of work, nope not in restaurants. Also franchises often have a locked door in the kitchen with an alarm on it
(they say it is for safety reasons, but we all know it is so a cook can't walk out or go smoke out back without the manager going out with them so
they can rush them back in).
Now that I'm in a good position at a great brew pub, the best in town, I actually am loving it, but it is very stressful when being slammed busy day
after day. I cope by smoking, and drinking
Sad to hear he committed suicide, he seemed like a nice guy on the show, and had some talent. RIP to a fellow chef!
