The "Manager"

Casinos are springing up all over Berlin, and I spotted this man having a smoke in the doorway of a new one near where we live. It was, of course, his moustache that drew me to him. Since he was wearing a shirt and tie, I assumed he was not a customer, and asked if he worked there.

He gave me a nod of the head.

"Are you the manager?" I asked.

He replied in a definite Eastern European accent - maybe Polish, or Russian, or Czech.

"I am not 'the' manager, but I manage."

"What exactly do you manage?"

"Oh," he said, "I manage a little bit here, and a little bit there, and a little bit everywhere."

When I asked to take his photo, he flipped his cigarette away and gave me this face.
