So sorry, I'm broke so I can only pay you $77 for my food. You were great though.

I like where the cooks make 14 flat and are doing more labor.

I didn't say servers don't work hard but the work required to cook that much often goes unappreciated in these posts.

Let's include all restaurant workers. Corporate spots don't tip cooks ever

I leave my cooking job after today to go be an EMT. Cooking is so underpaid.

Congrats to you too! I agree. I’m tired of the ever changing schedule and being underpaid. I liked cooking at first but after a few years it really wore me down. Not for me. The customers oddly are why I went to cooking, but also the only reason I kept doing it. Always felt good to have someone say they like the food you made.

I’m out though. The owners are so unappreciative. I’m only going in today because i appreciate my fellow cooks who I know will be hurting if I don’t come in during the game tonight. Otherwise I’d say fuck it.
