    14? Well, that explains A LOT. Now I am worried Rocco's next foray will be into a boy band.

    rocco's BA

    just want to point out that someone has to be at the bottom of his or her class. Having a ba in mgmt doesn't mean one can actually manage.

    that comment to Gideon about people not wanting to be reminded of life's tragedies when they go to a restaurant - guess he's gonna have to make sure no one in a wheelchair or any other of life's problems eats in his restaurant. might put the beautiful people off their ice cold gnocchi

    Excellent post duplessis

    I think Rocco comes across as socially stunted.
    He has a lot to learn about "man" management.

    Wait just a minute.

    If Little Miss Mulder is ONLY 14 - why all the references to Coors in her post??? Is she sitting around getting schnockered all day??

    I find that even more disturbing than the blatant Rocco adoration.

    Maybe Rocco should work on improving his relationship with his staff, better procedures for better service, and maybe lend a hand when things get hectic, so his restaurant can be worth promoting.

    Maybe if he focused as much attention to his employess rather than women guests, he might get somewhere. He needs to stop promoting HIMSELF!

    Ain't that the truth. I know that whenver I go into a restaurant and see somebody with a broken arm it just ruins my dinner totally! Pullease! I guess we won't see him hiring anybody with any sort of disability.

    Rocco is a social disaster. And a management nightmare. One good way to stir up a lot of anger among your employees is to give a Vespa to one of them. Sheesh!

    So he finally realized he had to get in there and actually cook. By his own admission, this was what was missing and, once he did it, things seemed to improve (editing?). So what does the preview show? He's not in the kitchen afterall. He said he'd discovered how much he missed the joy of cooking -- but I guess not as much as the joy of sliming all over his female customers.

    Rocco's a foul-mouthed, social inept, egotistical 13-year-old.

    I thought that was funny actually. A young guy who would bust his behind just to make it to the restaurant with a broken arm isn't uplifting, but some fat creepy guy with an eyeball for a ring dressed like a mortitian is? Rocco's attitude is the only thing that isn't uplifting! What a priss.
