Au revoir, Raymie!

Day five in Kansas City. Same routine coming up, a long day at Buffalo Wild Wings playing trivia and watching sports. Robb and Dawn will hopefully show up at some point.

Today is Raymie LePetiti’s last day working at Buffalo Wild Wings. I met her two years ago when she started there, and I’ve really loved seeing her ever since. She’s moving back to her native Arizona, and I wish her nothing but the best. I will miss her greatly, though.

Next Friday, Stephanie Suggs works her final day before moving to southern Missouri to work at the Lake of the Ozarks resort. She’s been with Buffalo Wild Wings almost eight years, including her long stint at the restaurant in her native St. Joseph. Going to miss her too.

I understand restaurants have high turnover. These are not meant to be permanent positions, unless one wants to get into management. They’re meant to be a stepping stone to something bigger and better. Or in the case of someone like Lindsey Taylor-McClain, they’re meant to be a second income, since her husband, Justin, has a good job which helps them support their three kids and another one on the way. Same thing with Ashlee Shelton, who has two kids, but her husband also works.

Thanks to Robb and Dawn, I still go to Zona Rosa. It would be easy to go to one of the locations on the Kansas side of the Kansas City metro, or just stay close to home and go to Salina.

I’m going to miss Raymie about as much as miss Liz and Lisa. I’ve gotten to know Stephanie better over the last year and it will be a big loss, too. But still seeing Lindsey, Ashlee, Shannon Swanson, Jaclyn Blankenship, Braidey Howe and many others will still put a big smile on my face.

I’ve got to jump in the shower. I need to get there a little earlier in case my buddy Larry is there playing trivia at lunch.
