Perchè il CAMERIERE è un’OCA?

Perchè un cameriere OCA?
A parte l’acronimo di O.C.C.CA. che richiama il nome del pennuto, la scelta di far impersonare ad un’oca il ruolo del cameriere non è stata affatto casuale. Innanzitutto va specificato: è un’oca, non un papero!
Per chi non lo sapesse il papero altro non è che il maschio dell’oca che ancora non ha raggiunto la maturità sessuale. Il papero se vogliamo fare una metafora è il commis che deve ancora fare esperienza e maturare ad “OCCCA”.
Altro aspetto che mi piaceva era come l’oca è un uccello che di norma siamo abituati a vedere camminare o nuotare nell’acqua, ignorando spesso che in realtà per migrare compie lunghissimi viaggi in volo. Esattamente come chi fa questo lavoro, che viene spesso sottovalutato nelle proprie capacità, che sono date proprio dall’esperienza avuta in giro per il mondo a lavorare nei locali più diversi, nelle zone più assurde.
Il resto dei personaggi furono poi pensati associandoli sempre ad animali da cortile, d’altronde cos’è un ristorante se non un’allegra fattoria?
animalfarm03In realtà esiste anche un’altra associazione più Orwelliana. Se qualcuno ha letto “La Fattoria degli Animali” ricorderà come i protagonisti del romanzo ad un certo punto della storia si ribellano contro l’uomo (il ristoratore?) per prendere possesso dell’intera fattoria. Il loro sogno di autogestione viene poi però distrutto dai maiali (i cuochi?) che se all’inizio erano stati gli ideatori della rivoluzione, poi finirono per impossessarsi dell’intera fattoria, per arrivare a prendere le sembianze di quelli che erano stati i loro padroni. Non male come metafora per chi giudica continuamente il proprio datore di lavoro senza sapere come si potrebbe comportare se fosse al suo posto!
Ma la frase che ci convinse più di tutte fu un’aforisma dell’attore Michael Caine:

“Sii come una papera,
Calma sulla superficie dell’acqua,
e sotto, sempre con le zampe in movimento”

Chissà se anche Michael Caine ha fatto il cameriere da giovane.

  1. Bello l’articolo, stupenda la citazione finale! Grazie Marco. E se poi leggo che le idee sono partite da uno dei miei libri preferiti, che dire, forse sono proprio nato per essere un cameriere!

    1. Grazie Marco! (parliamo tra omonimi, sembrerà un monologo 😉 )
      Più in la credo di scrivere un articolo dove spiego più nel dettaglio il parallelo tra il romanzo di Orwell e la realtà che viviamo a lavoro.

  19. Nästan alla män kan använda sildenafil även varje dag men det är bättre och säkrare att konsultera din läkare. Om du tar sildenafil för första gången och du vet fortfarande inte din egen dos, börja med 50 mg (det är den vanligaste doseringen) och nästa gång kan du öka dosen till 100 mg. Om denna dos får dig inget resultat – rådgör med din läkare. Kom ihåg att den maximala dosen är 100 mg om dagen, även för ”Junge Männer” som tyskarna säger. En daglig dos bör inte överstiga 25 mg för män som är över 65 år. Sildenafil Citrate är den aktiva ingrediensen i generiska läkemedel. Varje tablett kan innehålla 25-100 mg av detta ämne, som har den nödvändiga effekten vid behandling av impotens. Doseringen av Sildenafil 20 mg är oftast förskrivs till män som har haft lindriga symtom av sjukdomen. 100 mg är godkänd maximal dosering per dag.å-nätet-solna

  20. Within a short period, they can buy features multiple times and go broke quite fast. This can worsen the situation with problem gambling. Jurisdictions that have a firm grip on the industry don’t approve such solutions.

    You probably already know the short answer to this question: it depends on the policies of the bingo website. The slightly longer answer is that some websites prohibit such withdrawals altogether. Some websites will allow you to make a withdrawal, but with the proviso that it will result in your forfeiting either all or some of your bonus balance. (Some will remove the bonus from your account but won’t penalize you for winnings attributable to that bonus. Other sites will require that you forfeit both the bonus and winnings attributable to it.) The Wink Slots Welcome Bonus wagering requirement is set for 30 times the bonus amount and deposit.
