Bourbon Chicken, Please!

Share Tweet Email

On today’s show, we are honored to have in the studio the hardest working man in Northwest Indiana, who is taking a rare break from his job to talk with us.

Sanh Tran is the familiar-faced manager at Maki of Japan inside the food court at Westfield Southlake Mall in Hobart, politely asking passing patrons countless samples of bourbon chicken on toothpicks. Each time I visit that mall I stop at Tran’s place. And each time I watch Tran in action. The man works like nobody’s business, rarely taking a break from his 12 hours a day, seven days a week job.

We will chat with Sanh in just a minute about his job, his incredible work ethic, and his inspiring story of coming to this country from Vietnam as a teenager to sample the American Dream.

Also, are you Stuck Living in Mediocreland? You know what I mean. You wake up, slap the alarm clock, groan, either get the kids off to school or go to work – or BOTH – then watch the clock, check Facebook, run errands, hurry home, check Facebook again, do your nightly duties, got to bed and start it all over again the next day.

Sort of like a Groundhog Day for the rest of us, huh?

Exactly. Well, to help those of you who feel you’re stuck in a life rut in Mediocreland, motivational guru Shawn Anderson will call in to share three quick rut-escaping tips for anyone who needs emergency advice and are living the same day over…and over…and over.

And are you planning on driving down to Indy on Saturday for the high school boys’ basketball state finals games? If so, Jerry wants to talk with you about Hoosier Hysteria.

Plus, Is it customary to pull your vehicle aside for oncoming funeral processions in the opposite lane? Jerry just did, because he had to, but otherwise I wouldn’t. We’ll tackle this issue, too, which attracted a lot of attention on my social media sites.
