not that i get oout to fancy restaurants all that often, but the odd time that i do. 

 

i hate when the chefs come out and chat to random guests asking them how their food is, and start talking bollox about it. 

 

makes me fucking gringe, 

 

i was at a new restaurant here in ireland for my birthday in October, its run by a "famousih" chef called Derry Clarke, im sure he's a nice bloke, but dont come around talking bollox and interrupting me on the one day every quarter i get some peace and quiet away from the kids.........

There’s loads of the grandstanding stuff in catering I find similar to that. Like the fucking “yes, chef” and this contrived respect that people who work in kitchens implement, even in normal circumstances. Acting like they’ve been in the fucking trenches on the front line together. Get a fucking grip - you’ve made some food together, not stormed the beaches of Normandy you try hard cunts

Most of the stuff tastes like the beaches of Normandy too.

They're usually a bunch of miserable, tight cunts to. 

 

Myself and my brother have a small floor fitting company. We supply and fit flooring that goes into labs, wet rooms, industrial kitchens etc....... And we've done work in loads of restaurants kitchens. In fact, they're so hard to work for, we now only do work for 2 restaurants here in Dublin. 

 

We fit one kitchen out about 10 years ago and the place was so bloody dirty, we swore blind we'd never work in another kitchen again (it was owned by some Irish rugby players) . OK, we didn't stick to our guns, but the two restaurants we do the odd bit of quek for, are spotless, and they pay. 

 

We find the restaurant game is usually stuck in the "minium wage" market. They don't mind selling steak for a kings ransom, but heaven forbid, they paid anyone, besides the head chef, anything above minium wage. Fucking wankers.

"Outlook not responding"

 

How many hours of my life have I wasted with that shite?  Microsoft is the second-worst MS, but it's close.

 

Do you use Internet Explorer you cunt?

I was in work the other day and sent some figures to another couple of managers, indicating a couple of staff were giving out more fails than the rest of the team. I flagged that they may want to have a look at it and was there any reason they could think this may be happening, as it was impacting new starters.

 

A week or so later, my boss pulls me into a meeting asking why i have sent this email. The ones i had sent it to had only gone a cried to their boss, saying that i was suggesting their staff don't know how to do their jobs and i was they need development.

 

I ended up getting a bollocking, saying i shouldn't be looking into the data and i have other things i should be doing. Even had a go at me for finishing some work i had to do, the day before the deadline. I said i dont understand, i completed it by the deadline.  My boss said thats not the point, you could have done it earlier. I replied and said the work wasnt getting reviewed until after the deadline, to which she said thats not the point, and i stopped arguing the toss.

He's obviously shagging one of the people on your hate list. Oh and he's clearly a cunt. Email him that. The cunt

Try webmail version of outlook when it's doing this, it's far more reliable, the tradeoff being it doesn't have the same functionality.

People who say “I have done a complete 360 degree on this issue” It means you’re back where you started. Should be a 180 degree. It  was mentioned on a radio phone in tonight and I had never thought of it before. Now it annoys me. 

 

Absolute radio?
