    Doesn't 86'ed mean you killed him? Isn't that a bit harsh?

    Not considering the offense.

    ??? Sorry, should have been clearer - what does 86'd mean? I always thought it meant killing someone. Non-native speaker who wants to learn. And was I offensive? Don't know how but sorry if I was.

    86 in restaurant terms (as far as I know) means you are out of something and are in-able to make more. So if someone says "We are 86 Fried rice" That means that you are out of one of the key ingredients for making fried rice (IE Rice, eggs, oil, fire) and cannot replace it during this shift.

    So when you say a server has been 86'd that means they were gotten rid of, and hopefully killed.

    Yup!

    Sorry Stefan, I was speaking off the cuff. Like greasedbullet said, she was fired. And it wasn't the first, or second offense.

    1. Not knowing what the restaurant served.
    2. Being annoying.
