meat0918: Bullshiat on the "It can't be done".

Well, I have said a variation of it "It can't be done before the universe dies of heat death".

//NP complete. enough said.


As a chef, I have to concur on this. There are plenty of times that you have to acknowledge limitations. Limits on time, limits on space, limits on cost, limits on just physical laws. I get customers aplenty who have no idea what limitations that the space has: fire codes are NOT to be tampered with, at least not for long, you cannot make an "eggless" omelet and if you want a gluten free pasta, I need plenty of advance notice before you tochis comes in, because there is stuff I don't normally carry. I can give options, I can give suggestions and alternatives, but there are times when you have to give folks the bitter news that just because they can dream it, doesn't mean that it's going to happen. You want "medium rare" chicken, that's not happening, and it would be remiss of me to suggest that we will comply to whim and some kooky blog that you read that TOTALLY said it was going to be good for you.

Yes, limitations force you to think about overcoming them. Can you shift a wedding outside to overcome space limitations indoors? Can you suggest a menu change that will better accommodate someone's budget? Can you use an alternative dish for someone with an allergy so that they can still take part of the festivities? All of these are doable, but not necessarily are going to be exactly what someone is asking for, and as a manager, who is beholden not just to the customers, but to the joint itself and its owners, I have to think about more than just "BUT I WANNA!" Limitations exist, and it's not just to pour piss in someone's farina.
