    Servers who ask if an item is "home made".

    Touching my knives without permission. I had a student ask to try my Saji cleaver last month. I told her "Yes, but understand young lady-drop it and you're going down with it." Got a letter from the Chancellor on that one.

    Hax the Cook CLEAVERS RULE!!!

    To be honest I thought this was the one that was going to be deleted.

    No true offense. We're all on the same side.

    Smokers that want to take a "cig break" every 15 min. Cooks that complain that their station isn't set up when they walk in the door. Hello its your station to set up.
    Managers that have no clue. Managers that have other things to do, and nothing at the restaurant. Managers that get tied around the waitstaff's fingers.
    people that don't want to learn the job, or even care.

    Ohya, if you dislike people smoking, just swap their station around everytime they go for a smoke. Or hide their ****. Obviously not if they take responsible breaks, but you know the person I'm talking about.

    It's been a while since I've actually been in a pro kitchen, but my main pet peeves were:

    Walking off the line when a crowd starts to order.
    Not prepping enough.
    Wiping crap onto the floor.
    Not cleaning the grill.

    Finding the plastic wrap where one side has been caught so the wrap gets more narrow when you pull it out and you know the last person that used it knew that they left it caught but were too lazy to fix it so you have to slide your fingers or a knife under the overlayered one side of the wrap to rip or cut off the excess to even it out.

    Sometimes it's the person's fault and sometimes it's just a bobo roll of plastic. I've had brand new rolls do that to me(it always happens at the worst possible time) and they will track through the whole roll.
    As for the people.........
