He just needs a little seasoning

My new boss is a fine fellow. He’s a California guy, by way of Louisiana, so this is his first experience with a real winter — and he’s NOT enjoying it.

I should also mention that he has a culinary degree.

Which might explain something that happened yesterday.

When I showed up for work, as usual, we discussed the cold. He happened to mention that the ice was pretty bad, but the salt did a fine job of getting rid of it.

I warned him he should probably wash his car frequently, but didn’t think any more of it.

Until after he left.

That’s when I was throwing something away and noticed a box sitting in the trash can.

Morton Canning And Pickling Salt.

I just hope I can explain the concept of rock salt to him without laughing too hard…
