Little Green Faeries

Like someone pissing in your stream of consciousness

Restaurants are worlds unto themselves...certain codes apply secretly and universally...we are kinda like the Masons but with wine tools and gross amounts of undeclared income...

That said-when you, a new hire, walk into a restaurant, even if you are a rookie-you should display a certain amount common sense and seem knowlegeable overall-or the senior staff will smell blood and will haze you.

They will send you to other restaurants looking for non-existant products like 'meat glue', cucumber paste, buckets of steam etc.

You may find yourself carrying bags of bricks, buckets of colored water, or endlessly draining the coffee machine-

and when you head into another restaurant looking for a refill of bar neon or packets of dehydrated water-no one will let you in on the joke-they will pass you off to another restaurant until you return back to your shop-out of breath and empty handed-where everyone will laugh at you.

We are a surly band of rogues...but it is great fun on a good day and on a bad day worse than working a deep fryer in the nude.
