It is definitely true about using it or losing it. All this juggling of different parts of my life, dealing with learning new things and always being on the run has definitely sharpened my brain.
My memory even surprises me.
And all these seminars have sharpened my people skills. Most of our guests are very nice, but we do get some difficult people. Last night we had a guy was impatient about getting his entree. He came up to me and said “are we ever going to eat.” I assured him that the entrees were being cooked as we spoke. A few moments later, I saw him go into the restaurant serving area and start to fuss. Then he came up to me as the kitchen had said they were waiting for my okay to start serving the second course.
I really wanted to say something snarky to this guy. I had already picked up that he had to think he was in control and any snarky comment would just make him escalate. And I would be going down to his level which never comes out good. Just look at what happened to Rubio when he went down to Donald Trump’s level.
In other words, all I could look was bad along with the confrontation never ending. So, I just told him his steak would be there any minute and walked away. I let him win and let it go. Well, maybe not completely. You better believe he will never ever be getting another invitation from us. And he may just end up dead in a future book with a steak knife in his back.
