What drives you absolutely insane? - Page 2

What drives me insane? ...............Pretty much everything, hence the moniker. :look:

Society's lack of; attention to detail, ownership of actions, respect for experience, patience, common courtesy and taking time to learn and do the tasks correctly. There's also the argumentative cook at home. Ask questions? I love'em and would probably answer more if some just won't argue with the responses if it's not exactly to their liking. Don't be surprised when you ask for an opinion and you get exactly that.... An opinion.

Then there is the ever popular over-inflated self importance or the culinary snob.:bounce:


Shroom, CC. It wasn't too long ago for that "community cohesiveness". I've only been here a little over a year and I saw it. That is if you're talking about here at CT. Unfortunately this falls under the topic of "growing pains" since there are too many BC types that wanna sound important. I guess I can remember back to a time when I did the same but for me I've learned it's one thing to throw around allot of technical phrases, buzz words and things... just make sure you look in the hand to see what you're throwing.;)

Personally...I hate looking stoopid. Better to remain silent and thought as than to open my mouth and remove all doubt. (Sometimes that actually works too) .:smiles:

The whole problem with the world is that the average IQ is only 100. By definition, every other person you meet is below average in intelligence! :)

Lately what drives me crazy go nuts are certain TV ads.

Like, f'rinstance, all those from the U.S. Mint.

How many of our tax dollars are being spent on those ads? And to what end. It's not like we have a choice. We can't go to a different store to buy our money.

Somebody is really out of control.

Pheh!

Actually, Jim, cigarette butt filters are a leading cause of fish poisoning. They get washed down into the sewers, from there to the rivers, and from there into the sea. The fish swallow them and the concentration of nicotine harms them.

it was a different era 6 years ago......there were more games, creative menu planning, taste profiles.....bouncing techniques off others that cook for a living or play in their kitchens a whole lot.

It's nice to know who is responding to a question.....professional who's butt is on the line if they maim or kill a customer or a home cook who doesn't have the same loss of business, reputation, etc.... A commercial kitchen is different than home, an offsite catering business is different from a restaurant/on-site......
I don't mind sharing info or answering some questions....others are just assinine, "I want to start a catering business what do I do?".

It seems even the trolls were of better quality then. Anybody remember my pal James Bond?

As far as the topic is concerned, what oldschool1982 said in the first sentence of his post. Seems like some people lately think they are entitled to money from work, but it can't be hard work.

was that one or two people....seems that James had someone using his name at one time.....
Nick.shu was an awful lot of fun.....he's posted recently, been blue moon since he'd posted prior.....how to cook Noah's ark, now that was a thread.

I can remember the gross thread....and man was it gross.....or the what meal can you make with all this shtuff list that CC must have dragged off his country club inventory list.....or bouncing baking techniques off the pastry guys that weren't really kosher.....the greek island girl, now what was her name?.....isa, oh my isa had such a strong spirit and a foodie soul for one whose body betrayed her, I still think of Montreal and croissants that had people lined up in their robes when I think of isa.......
seems like someone promised me a trip to Chicago for working out a Cajun catering menu for them, didn't see that promise through fruition.......

CC and I joined when Tony Bourdin was active and actually had the on line interview thingy, that was pretty weird....bouncing off line, people chatting all at once, our questions having to go through Nicko....
oh yeah and actually at one time we had post counts erased and had to start off at 0 again....wonder whatever happened to my Cheftalk mug....1000 posts or 1500?
