“I was a line cook for a bar several years ago. My one rule now at such an establishment is no cold cuts (turkey sandwich, etc.) If it does not need to be put in a fryer or on a grill, some ~20 year old kid is handling it with his bare hands right after playing with his balls, I guarantee it.”

Tuna Salads.

User 7RoastBeefSandwiches said:

“I worked at sandwich shop for awhile and ended up making the tuna salad a lot. When it was made right, it was thick, when it was make wrong it was soupy. *3 cups of mayo per giant can of tuna, along with celery and onions and a secret ingredient.

There was a lot of mayo in it, sure, but what I’m trying to say it at least where I worked it was worth ordering unless some dummy made it.

*it’s been awhile since I was an employee of this particular chain so I may have forgotten exactly how much of whatever was used.”

“I’m a barista. Be wary of “smoothies” served at chain cafés, they are very often a super sugary fruit puree made for margaritas mixed with ice cream. I feel bad when my customers think it’s a healthier option. Also, if you are rude, you will get decaf. Every barista I know does this. But I mean RUDE, like throwing your credit card at us, talking down to us, or making ridiculous demands like your latte at 113 degrees with .74 inches of foam. Yes people really do that.”
