A Good Fit

Greetings Golfers,

Can you believe it’s August 20th?

How did that happen?

We’re losing staff every day … they’re going back to college.

We’ve always had great kids … but this might be the best bunch ever. And, it’s not just the individuals … it’s how it comes together … how it fits.

Heidi Breen’s F&B staff has been unusually good … amazingly efficient and hospitable … and free of drama!

I don’t know about you … but I don’t like drama. It’s not fun … it’s not funny … it’s just annoying and exhausting.

So … why did Heidi’s team work so well together? Two things: Respect for each other  … and a shared sense of humor.

Respect, because everyone deserved it - everyone worked hard and was responsible.

Sense of humor … hmmmm … that’s not so easily explained. Not that everyone was funny … but rather, everyone “got it”.

Humorless people are hard to get along with … and usually cause drama.

I’m not a soap-opera or drama type of television show watcher. But when I have seen those types of programs, I’ve noticed that they’re never funny. Everyone is so serious about their lives that they can’t laugh or joke around. 

Fortunately, our staff was not that self-absorbed. They were serious about doing their job, but not so serious about themselves that they couldn’t joke and get along with each other.

After Labor Day, we’ll be basically kid-less. You’ll be stuck with us grown-ups. 

Hopefully, we’ll still be fun. Maybe not as much fun … but definitely not a soap-opera. 

Cheers!
