I suffer from RCS (Restauranteur Compassion Syndrome)
I can’t help but notice if a restaurant is empty. I feel the helplessness and anxiety of the owner as he contemplates the hourly payroll.
Certain restaurants are on my deathwatch. I pray for them but am relieved when finally they go to a `better place.

If I were starting out in life again, I would become a psychologist instead of a writer.
I would specialize in the peculiar mental derangement that causes people to open a restaurant.
Approximately 60% of restaurants fail within three years. And no wonder. There are tons of restaurants competing for business.
Indeed, restaurants compete with everyone who has a kitchen and a cookbook, which is almost everyone.
