post #31 of 37

that is because you where going to the walk in with your idea and then chef told you his idea and you forgot what you where doing ha ha

I wish that were the case chef1962 but sadly most of the time I get the sometimers kicking in and I draw a complete blank as to why I'm in there in the first place.   It's not so bad now that I don't work in a restaurant but still every now and then I stand there looking clueless and the exec chef always seems to see me at that time and asks me what's up.

 

I had a dumb moment yesterday... exec chef needed me to come with him to verify what I had set up to ship and I walked straight into some pots that were hanging from the pot rack...  Sorry for my luck he heard the noise and of course jumped at the chance to make fun of me!  I have a bruise where the one pot handle hit but I'm hoping tomorrow I can hide it with a hair net seam or my bangs...

 

 

OK ... where am I going?.. and WHY am I in this handbasket??

I'll  tell you good one.One time when i was young i called in sick (HUNG- OVER) on a carving station, so chef, I guess,  had to stay that night and carve.Next morning I came in as scheduled. Now i know the Exec. Chef does not pick up steamship rounds.He has stewards and a kitchen crew to do that.So chef calls me into the walk-in to help him with one.Well i open the purchasing walk-in door and the purchasing agent, the F&B,Banquet Chef,Sous Chef and the G.M. are in the middle of the walk-in,I get a knee in my back and get friendly beaten to the floor about how you never leave the chef to carve.Grown men in the kitchen ha ha.

In my kitchen solo, my phone vibrates on my hip, I grab it with slippery hands, it slips out of my hand, cartoon style, bounces off the flat top and lands...you guessed it...in the fryer, as soon as I drain the fryer to get it out, I get a rush of tickets. Now I'm trying to fish my now melted cell phone out of the bottom of the fryer (why, of course it wedged under the  heating element!) and trying to load about 10 orders into one fryer while the other reheats...never lived that one down.

Thanks for the laugh!  After my day today I really needed a good chuckle! 

 

No dumb story attached to my day, just one of those days!

Glad you got a chuckle...to be honest when it happened I got a pretty good laugh out of it as well...but the best part was the look on the face of the poor Sprint girl when I pulled a baggie with a melted phone in it from my pocket!

Cleaning a fryer at a country club cafe, the only tool I had to use was a non-perferated, flat spatula. As I am slowly cleaning the bits and pieces of crap out of the dark brown abbys, A co-worker I was working the line with decides it would be a great time to be a prankster and sneak up behind me and grab my shoulders and scream at the same time. I had the spatula submerged in the oil and jumped when his hands hit me and I flung grease over my right arm. the fryer was off, but not completely cooled, not even close. The grease burn was 14" long, no claim. My bad :) Noobie mistakes.
