There have been more days than I can count in my career that have caused me to ask the question, “Why?”
Why do I work these hours?
Why do I put up with this?
Today the company I work for opened a new casino in the great little city of Cape Girardeau, MO. As with most openings there are the typical bumps in the road. Heck, sometimes we see these as downright man-eating potholes. Luckily, these are always the things we, as the operators, notice and never the customers.
Each opening has been a unique experience unto itself, and today’s was no different. I had the opportunity to be there a few hours before opening. I had the wonderful opportunity to see 700 or so brand new employees in brand new uniforms excited to see the first customers come through the door. I had the opportunity to greet so many of them and wish them a Happy Opening Day (Hallmark, you should think about this as a card-giving occasion.) and cheer them on to success.
This is why I keep doing this. I knew there had to be a reason.
Happy Opening Day!
