    Haha I thought someone might say that Actually I ate nothing at the restaurant I worked at for two years except the specials I ran. It IS possible to make great-tasting vegan food; I think most vegans just think it has to taste like **** or it's not actually vegan, and this restaurant was no exception- they were amazed when I marinated tofu! ("It tastes so good! Are you sure I can eat this?") I was embarassed to say I worked there and actually contemplated taking it off my resume after I left and just telling prospective employers I didnt do a darn thing for two years! I had it in my mind to quit almost the whole time I was there, but they were paying me so much my wife couldn't have afforded to finish school if I hadn't stayed. Most of the BOH crew were pretty cool people too; a lot of the graveyard prep guys would cook meat in there at 3am, sometimes they'd save me some (hurry & eat that before the owner gets here or we'll ALL be fired!) Two LONG years but the sacrifice was worth it in the end- she has her degree and a GREAT job, and makes enough that I don't have to work 70plus a week anymore

    A new one, well not new, but came up recently.

    Cowards. Like the kind that go into dry storage to get walnuts during dinner rush and never come back. No explanation, nothing, just disappeared

    Cowards! Yes! I once saw a cook season two-dozen steaks with sugar instead if salt, because he didn't want the head chef to see that he had run out of salt on his station.

    The sort of chefs that make a mistake and don't 'fess up to it piss me off as well. Lying and putting your coworkers in the **** because you are too afraid to get bollocked out.

    We still haven't seen that guy. He even left a few of his tools. Guess they are ours now, its been two weeks. No phone call or anything why he quit. It wasn't like it was a stressful night or he was gettin to much crap from us, his hazing was over, lol, and was being treated like one of the guys
