about 25 years ago, a really nice dinner house was hesitant to hire me as a line cook. interesting, I was to be the first female ever in that kitchen, and they were worried about my take on the language that flew?
one of the managers pointed out that I had been several years in logging camps and on various boats and might have heard it.
got the job, loved it, and I tried not to embarrass the boys! hehe
also could point out that the loggers who can be very naughty when in town, in camp for the most part were pretty well behaved--goes back to tradition. sailors on the other hand-oh my!
but wow on The Chopping Block last night and on last years Top Chef seemed I heard the ef word more often than ever--you're on TV for crying out loud and I understand pressure, but what happened to a smidgen of self control?
