    We had a co owner/manager that insisted on oversampling every special we made. Huge scoops of everything off the line. He had developed a bad cocaine problem and would really get in the way. One busy night , I announced " the avocado sauce is ready for the shrimp and lobster special" holding out a large serving spoon of wasabi . He came running, grabbed it out of my hand. I thought his eyes were gonna pop out before he ran away. We didn't see him for days.

    That is a good one that's for sure...the best thing to do to someone in my opinion is turning something off on them and theyre like *** why is it not cooking when its not busy obviously I Would be heated though thats for sure nothing like a porkchop not cooking in the oven

    I really dislike these kinds of pranks. There's always that one guy that just doesn't know when enough is enough.

    Am I the only one? Love pranks, have worked in kitchens, English is my first language and I read this with some interest, but couldn't understand several of the descriptions though I imagine they were great.

    Anything which gets the servers is tops in my book - they deserve it all - sabotaged eats being the classic.

    Long story short, if you garnish just about ANYTHING the right way, servers will attempt to eat anything.

    i had one job where servers would snack off of plates in the window when no one was looking. so after i cleaned ribeyes and other stuff, i would slice the cap( pure fat) batter and fry them. out of the fryer they looked exactly like chicken strips. i would put them in window and wait. eventually the staff would assume they were extra chicken strips and chow down. good times!

    That sounds good. I love beef fat, especially that from a ribeye.
