    Pet peeves

    After an after shift ***** fest with some coworkers the other night, we started listing our pet peeves for fun. What are some of yours, i'm sure this list will be quite funny.

    some of mine, in no particluar order:

    Using my brotforms for any other reason then their purpose.
    Leaving plastic spoons in the salad dressings at the end of service.
    Poking my fermenting dough. I told one guy im gonna ferment him the next time, lol
    Stealing my side towel.

    and most importantly (grounds for a flogging) moving my coffee.

    there are more, and i'm sure we all share some, but just wanted to get things started. So lets here them. What drives you nuts in the kitchen besides the obvious saftey and sanitation stuff

    Other people using my knives. That will never not piss me off. It does make me laugh though when they cut themselves

    My biggest. " That's not my job!" My reply is "your job is whatever the hell I tell you your job is!" or " your right, that's not your job and neither is this one, get the hell out!"
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Using My knives
    Other people using their knives to cut cardboard
    Whistling
    Taking one of the boards off my stack or my compost/plastics buckets
    Trying to cook for me
    When people shove to get past all the time then stand in your way or slow down.

    Putting cases of stuff down on my blades
    Table Salt
    Freezers
    Microwaves
    Cardboard
    "I Forgot _____, sssooorrryyy"

    People who spend more time complaining about having to do something correctly than it would take to just DO IT CORRECTLY!!!!!

    whistling
    waste
    not taking the masking tape label off of something and sending it through the dish washer
    not consolidating into clean and smaller containers
    consolidating new and old product
    people eating off of plates cleared from a table, just yelled at a server for that
    dull knives, duh
    but the biggest one is touching me while I work, I swung around and cracked someone in the ribs for sneaking up behind me and grabbing my shoulders while I was expediting a busy night. It was totally reactionary and I felt awful...just a weird tick I've been working on getting rid of for years.

    The I forgot excuse gets me...

    Also a big no no to me is excused, so you messed up, it happens. Own up to it and fix it, don't make an excuse

    My peeves when I was in the kitchen:

    almost all the wait staff
    late orders for steak tartare after I'd cleaned the meat grinder
    the sh!t music people would play
    tatoos
    end of shift cleaning
    people dumping on and treating the dishwashes like sh!t
    almost all the wait staff, if I haven't already mentioned that
    the wait staff

    This is a good thread.

    Not washing hands
    When people use the same spoon for tasting and excavating jars of ingredients
    When people are afraid to heat the pan to proper tempature.
    Not washing hands
    Not cleaning up after prep
    Putting dishes in the sink
    trying to grab a knife for inspection from my very close wall magnet
    cutting with a knife that will shave hair like a hand saw
    using soap on my cast/iron pans
    not properly preheating the cooking vessel

    I'm sure I have more
