The last few as an Executive Chef running hotel kitchens in the Bay Area. Trust me the very very worst day anyone ever had in any cube farm anywhere (that did not involve a disgruntled individual with a gun), is better by far than most good to so so days in the kitchen. Try washing dishes at 0400 in the morning on New Years day because you have to get the kitchen pout back together from the NYE parties for the breakfast crew... knowing that your next will last 18 hours and you last one was 24. Try regularly going to work on a Thursday morning and not seeing the outside of the hotel until Sunday evening.
Eeew boring and tedius, you poor bastard.
I am sooo glad I work in IT now, this is the worst IT job I have ever had and it is still better than every restaurant job ever.
