The Mean Chef

Once there was a chef, who was mean to his cooks. He was mean to the people who came in to eat. He charged too much for meals. Many people were not able to afford the cheapest bean dish.

Since they had no funds, they had many debts.

曾经有一个对手下很吝啬的厨师长,他对前来就餐的客人都很小气。他把价格标的很高,很少有人能吃得起一份最便宜的豆类菜品。就连金属烤箱坏了,他也没有去修,以致于烘焙的所有食品都烧着了。店里唯一的照明是几根蜡烛,整个后厨乱成一团。他有时不给服务员发工资,以致于他们欠下了很多债务。

The chef behaved this way all the time. He monitored the cooks and yelled if they did not do things his way.

这个厨师一直以来都是这样。如果手下的厨师不按他的方式去做他就会大喊大叫。

One day, the cooks decided that they were tired of the abuse and that they would not be passive anymore. Everyone opposed the chef. At first, they thought about suing him. Instead, they tied up the chef with rope. Now, they controlled the restaurant! They decreased the price of food. They used the best ingredients and made large quantities of food. They turned on the lights. The restaurant was converted into a happy place. For the first time, many people came to eat.

某天,手底下的厨师终于决定不再忍受这种虐待,不再沉默。所有人都开始反抗。起初,大家都想着起诉他,但最后却用绳子把他绑了起来。然后大家控制了餐厅!他们开始降价,并使用最好的原材料做菜,而且菜量也增加很多。大家把灯打开,餐厅瞬间变成一片乐土。有史以来的第一次,人们纷纷前来就餐。
