    From our eloquent staff at the halfway house:

    French Dick = French Dip
    Chicken Peninis = Chicken Panini
    Pubes = Curly Fries
    Buttholes = Onion Rings

    We don't all say it. A lot of people would think its weird. But in every high end place I've worked they say it. And when one of the best chefs in your state shouts out an order at you you have all of 0.1 seconds to shout oui or your ass is his.
    It's just the way it is. But in more relaxed restaurants everyone says yes.
    Here it's "HAI!" Everybody says it. And if you don't, you'll get the stinkeye.
    Pretty much like the Japanese version of Fuggedaboutit.

    I recommend watching Louis CK's rendition of diner slang.

    Reading this thread makes me seriously miss being in the middle of a Sat. nite gang rape- printer spooling onto the floor, wild eyed expo trying to answer 6 different people at a time, newbies crouching in the corner mumbling "there's no place like home, there's no place like home".

    Sighhh....

    I hate the weeds. I'd rather be one step ahead of a busy service than one step behind.

    My girlfriend did hear a fellow cook that was deep in the shits say "please God, make me a bird so I can fly far, far away". That same kitchen would sing when they started to go down, every station had their own "weeded song"

    Dardeau, sometimes you can't help it, I know what you mean, but I mean a busy as hell Saturday in the middle of the summer ( I live by the shore), where tickets just keep coming and coming, and its inevitable

    It's definitely a love/hate relationship, but with no sarcasm at all I really do miss it.
