The Swedish Chef

Seems that you can be too good at what you do, as Richard Norberg has found out. For the past 6 years Richard Norberg has run a company cafeteria for ABE, an engineering concern in Oernskoelsvik Sweden. He has built up a steady clientel of some 300 patrons (up from the regular 100 patrons). The increased patronage has resulted in long lines and waits for service. The company will not be renewing Mr. Norberg's contract. They run a business not a restaraunt. Mr. Norberg's specialties include traditional Swedish pancakes, pea soup, and pork chops. The price of fame the insight of mediocrity.

Perhaps he could get a job at IKEA and do something about those dreadful Swedish meatballs.
