The article regarding Chipotle was a very interesting review, being that it is also highlighted in the ascribed text for the Business course.

Although, the reason for the new philosophy will not only facilitates a better economy as the country rises out of the recession era, but it will produce a more educated pool of restaurant employees. Incidentally, will usher in a new way of society’s appreciation for what use to be a meager form of employment.
Thus by starting small or asserting yourself with much smaller tasks such as asking to be moved to a different seat in a restaurant. By being assertive in smaller situations such as in a restaurant will enable individuals to become confident in being appropriately assertive (Tartakovsky, 2015). Step 2) Identifying Personal Limits (learn to say no): For myself I find it hard to say no to people whom ask something of me I feel that I’m being rude and selfish. However, being assertive in this sense is considered to be healthy for an individual to set these limits according to (Pfafman & McEwan, 2014).

Garfinkel in my opinion was a sociological genius, because he took something undetected and made it detectable. It seems silly to perform an experiment on how people act daily, but this type of work made it possible for others to understand and even break away from social norms. Background assumptions according to Garfinkel are all about how we perceive the world around us by doing what is expected in everyday situations. For example, if you were to walk into a fancy restaurant wearing a T-shirt and jeans, you are breaking a social norm. This leaves the people around you questioning your judgement and character.
I read an interesting book that left me thinking of the way I shop and I don’t mean the way I shop at clothing stores I mean the way I shop for groceries, it also left me thinking of the food that I’ve been eating and even the food that I order when I go to fast food restaurants. This book is “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” it pictures the reality in the food business, but in a different funny way to understand it better. The book even makes you think of how important food is in life and it can also make you see a new way of looking at the food that’s on your plate.

The passion for the job has to be there or you will end up with people who don’t care to serve cold fries to a paying customer, employees that don’t bother to go around to ask you how your meal is, or employees that will send a burnt burger into the hands of a customer.
