Right on, thanks! This is the type of stuff I was wondering. I am and have been doing most of those things.
I guess I'm basically asking for pet peeves in a working kitchen.. what else is out there?
All of my experience is in Michelin+ level restaurants, so im usually pretty picky and have a million pet peeves.
Don't be needlessly loud in the kitchen.
Don't slam doors
Don't close doors with your feet.
Don't be the jackass who throws stuff into the trashcan and misses every time.
Don't go for a smoke break every 30 minutes
Don't make 5 trips to the walk in like an idiot
Initials on labels
Sweep your floor frequently (and don't kick trash beneath tables like a savage)
Don't be drunk/high at work.
Stack dishes properly at the pit
Wear proper nonslip shoes
Extra fine tip sharpies, so your labels aren't 5 inches long
Don't leave your cups/mugs on the line
Communicate with your coworkers. Call out times
Don't rely on borrowing your coworkers stuff.
There are a few things that come to mind.
