Pet Peeves

Wondering about other cooks/chef's pet peeves when it comes to cooking professionally....

Lets see...

1) Oven or reach-in coolers kicking the bucket before or in the middle of service
2) ditto petitbleu and ChefOno
3) Banquet guests arriving more than an hour late
4) un-labled food in the walk-ins

Orders for well-done steaks. And then complaints about them being dry, tough and flavorless.

Arrogant, disrespectful, loud, discourteous customers. Parents of out of control children.

You are preaching to the choir here ChefOno. You need to go all Marco Pierre White on them.

Cambros not being refilled with ingredients after the shift before yours. It's like waking up late--you're behind all day.

The kitchen isn't clean. Cooktop, floor, sink etc.
