It's an actor's job to play all the human conditions - light, dark, and medium.

As a restaurateur, my job is to basically control the chaos and the drama. There's always going to be chaos in the restaurant business.
Maybe you don't like your job, maybe you didn't get enough sleep, well nobody likes their job, nobody got enough sleep. Maybe you just had the worst day of your life, but you know, there's no escape, there's no excuse, so just suck up and be nice.
