When that one co-worker in particular would rather unnecessarily prep for his SMALL and ONLY ticket thats ON HOLD while you're getting bent over your station, rather than help you plate two small items for the ticket before it that he already plated and is getting cold, because it's not his job.
Run-on sentence, I know.
Some really good ones guys, so I don't really have anything that hasn't been mentioned, but here goes, In no particular order:
1)Don't touch any of my sh!t: knives, tools, mise, towels, NOTHING.
2)Be F*ing clean, always. Drop something, pick it up immediately. See something someone else dropped, pick it up! Wipe down your board between tasks, wipe off the door to your reach-in, etc. You'll never be clean enough, but keep trying.
3)If you take the last one, replenish it.
4)Open your eyes and actually look before you tell me there isn't any ______ left. When I go and find it, I won't be happy.
5)Rotate the damn product!!!
6)People who don't know how to properly wrap their mise w/ plastic. It should be wrapped sufficiently so that when you drop your tray nothing spills.
7)If you tear the plastic on the edge of the roll, for the love of god, DON'T KEEP PULLING IT!! Open the box and fix it!
8)Write it down!!! I don't have time to tell you the same sh!t 3 times a day.
9)How can you work with knives that dull???
10)Put it back where you found it, NOW.
Good thread, that felt good.
I don't really mind that people use my knives when I leave them out. I try not to be too anal about things, but maybe its because I'm lucky I've never had anyone break one or do anything really stupid with it.
However I do appreciate when someone, even the chef, asks "may I use your knife?" when its sitting right in front of them. The answer is always "of course".
These are little things that the general public just doesn't understand!

*Don't let foreigners leave the tip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Did I emphasis that too much?)
*Brief your overseas guests on US tipping customs.
*Your table is the most important! (It is but so is everyone else's.)
*If you walk in to an empty restaurant 5 minutes before closing you should be warmly welcomed. DON'T WEAR IT OUT!
*You will be treated like a guest in our house. We hope you act like one.
