This is a parenting post and it’s not a very popular topic. Bear with me.
This past week I had a few employees at a new restaurant training for our location to open in the food court. I was there with them. Three were college age, one was mid-twenties, and two were older than me. Everyone helps to do dishes. That’s my rule for the food court; it brings together a crew.
I HAD TO TEACH A 19 YEAR OLD TO DO DISHES.
Let that sink in.
He honestly had no idea how to. That night I had my 13 and 12 year old talk me through the process of hand washing dishes. Just to prove to myself that they will be OK without a dishwasher present. Because you won’t always have a dishwasher. It’s a luxury that a lot of people do without.
