    My first post!
    Then you, like me, know the never ending joy of serving customers! I work in a restaurant in town and have been doing so for more years than is really healthy.

    I have a blog up n running and I am looking for more dispatches from the hell that is restaurant work to add to this site. Any one who has a good story click the link below and find the stories for manuel link within. If you work in catering then you should find the blog cathartic. Anyone else will learn a few things ;-)

    Sex , Drugs, n Bread Rolls!

    Brings back memories.
    I've never met a worse person than the chef I used to work with. Just an awful awful man.

    well if you don't LIKE working in a restaurant, you can always get a job doing something else, like wiping old people's bottoms, working in a call centre, or emptying bins.
    Honestly!

    I never imagine working in such an environment would ever be anything like Spatz, so I never bothered.
  10. avatar tingtatingtingtingtating
    Yeah Spatz [i:add33a2c17]was[/i:add33a2c17] indeed the ideal working environment - light comedy - dossing around (but the job still got done) and complaints always ended on a good note. I was glad that High School didn't turn out like Grange Hill though. Disappointed that primary school wasn't like "Woof" or "Wysiwyg" - the floating brain that made wishes thing.

    Portstewart 1998, waiter keeps nicking chips off customer's plates. Chef, p*ssed off about this, chips up a Godzillian chip, fries it, slices it open, scoops out the inner potato and fills the shell with salt before resealing with oil and setting on plate. Waiter eyes finest chip of it's generation and scoffs it. Mouthful of salt produces ususal effects (watering eyes, gasping for breath and so on). Chef's wife holds out glass of water. Waiter gulps relief sized slurp. Not water, vinegar. So cruel, how we laughed.

    A well known but now closed American themed burger joint, back in the late 90's. When a local politican from whatever side of the fence dandered in, the kitchen staff from the other side of community played silly buggers with their grub.

    Oh how I can't forget when Ian Jr came for tea, and had his steak well and truly beaten of the scrotum sac of a chef from the Antrim Road. :twisted:

    Both waiterrant & welldonefillet are good reads. I've never been a waiter but I've worked in that other great bastion of abuse, tech support. And in a supermarket where I got more than my fair share.

    Thus I empathise.

    Steaks casually wiped on stinky floors?
    Extra-extra-extra hot chili dressings?
    Stolen sirloins?

    Ah, the joy of catering. Not as good as the joy of revenge on idiot customers however.
