Win Win : yet to be invented
so I thought it a good deal,
one that would work for both parties.
I needed the second cook on the weekends
and someone also able to fill in … with little or no notice.
He was a part-time student – a retraining chef
seeking other artistic outlet as a designer –
needing a couple of fixed days
and some casual hours for discretionary spending.
“ Yes,” and “ yes ” –
he could do both
would be happy, willing seeking to work extra.
Yes and yes.
He would do me.
The weekends had to be filled
and as sure as people got sick
had a crisis or something else
and needed time off
I needed an extra worker.
Okay, the pay is,
Do you think I’d give up my weekends
an inconvenience myself during the week
I wouldn’t have come in for an interview,
if I knew that’s what you’re offering.”
