- You can’t stand watching someone use the wrong knife for the wrong use
- You can’t stand someone touching your knives without permission
- In fact, you develop a creepy obsession with your knives that no one outside the culinary industry will understand.
- If you’re a pastry chef, the same creepy obsession goes for your spoons
- Smelling like food…all the time
- Yelling “Behind!” …in the supermarket
- The infamous plastic wrap/foil edge cut
- Not getting invited to any special occasions or events because you haven’t been able to make one in five years.
- Having the ability to grab hot objects mere mortals could not even imagine
- Friends thinking you got in a fight after looking at your hands when it was really just a “fight” with the microplane
- Your awareness of someone’s lack of efficiency increasing and tolerance of it will decreasing
- No one cooking for you because they feel embarrassed
- Which in turn leads to you having to cook for every family gathering (if you can make it!)
- When you don’t realize how loud it is in the kitchen until and hour after your clock out and your ears are still ringing
- Working in a cave all day aka no windows or natural light
- When the ticket printer stops working halfway through the first rush
- Trying to describe quenelles to someone
- Running out of centrefeed. Its the kitchens lifeblood
- That jungle rash developed from the humid kitchen. (Where’s the cornstarch?)
- The fact that you are given more work because by reading this you have too much time on your hands
- The fact that after accepting all of this you still will never trade your job for anything in the world! #chefsareawesome
