Just out of curiosity, how many of you really, truly, don't wear your chef jacket into work as you walk through the door? I do... I like being prepared and just coming in, washing my hands, and getting down to business. Apparently it's unsanitary to wear the jacket outside for a brief moment? I don't really buy it... but if it's the industry standard and something that I'm just overlooking, then I will change my practice. Do you all take it off when you go out also? I generally just leave mine on as I walk out the door and go to the grocery store, just out of convenience. But it goes in the basket or the washer that night..
