My name is…

I was super excited – couldn’t wait to start work the next day…

I mean, maybe I was a little up in the clouds about the role but you know, who wouldn’t want to work in a place like that? Who wouldn’t – thats until I saw my name on a badge that is – really?? – I mean WTH – please explain…

And, so then started my mad existence as a bar manager – and my frustration in being really nice to the guests while trying to sell them nachos for tea – with a bottle of their finest champagne – because that’s what the corporation wanted us to do – all the time – sell sell sell – then sell some more…

OK, so there’s a lot of conflicting scenarios here – like just how many glasses of wine to serve someone you know is going to drive into town for dinner… it’s like, what am I… The Moral Police?? I think not!

I’d do everything that I could, to not wear that name badge – but somehow I always got told off by management. And the flip side to doing a job I loved in a corporate world is motivation.  Thinking back on my crazy apprenticeship into art space – I guess once an artist – always an artist hey… Rock on!
