“I know you hate it when I use kitchen analogies. . .” my husband said to me earlier this week.
Again. For the countless time.
He really is trying to be helpful, I just don’t have a lot of patience with the comparison.
It’s well known in our house that my husband loves watching a certain TV show that stars an infamous chef.
Show after show, the chef goes to struggling restaurants and helps to transform them into successful businesses. (It’s a great premise, just not my favorite show.)
The point is, in every episode I can recall, the restaurant kitchen is riddled with problems.
Often, the kitchen is a mess, in need of deep cleaning.
The kitchen staff argue and fight. The food is terrible. Nothing goes as planned.
The owners are frustrated, anxious, and angry.
The clients are irritated and disappointed.
Often, it looks as if the restaurant won’t make it.
Then the chef arrives.
He analyzes the situation and implements a plan to rehabilitate the restaurant.
With many dog families, things aren’t much different than the chef’s TV show:
The kitchen is a mess because the dog won’t stay out when you’re cooking and he gets into the trash whenever he thinks he can get away with it.
Counters are littered with crumbs left from your sandwich that your dog stole when you had left him unattended for a brief second.
You are frustrated and irritated and, possibly, anxious.
Your dog has learned that the reward of stealing food is better than any scolding you might give.
The tension in the kitchen is growing.
