I dont really understand what Chef Clay was trying to say in his post about Waitstaff What are you exactly saying the waitstaff is like Are they just stupid people, uncaring or what I know myself as a waitress and future tea room owner I dont fully know what the cooks and chefs totally do but I know my job and it is to know about the food and pleasing my customers. In return most kitchens dont know what my job involves. I know from my experience the kitchen always seems to have problems with asking about food items. I know how to cook and all that but sometimes there are ligite reasons why we ask certain questions about things and no one needs to get all hyper when we do ask. All I know is that one day there needs to come a time when the kitchen staff and waitstaff can work as one and not so much against each other. The kitchen I deal with now is messed up also. Ask one person a question then they tell u to ask someone else and just goes down the line til you then find a manager who then gets it taken care of. Waste about 2 minutes of my time and theirs just because they dont wanna communicate. Now thats a crock. I am not a mean person nor do I have stupid questions or am mean to anyone in the kitchen. I could just go on and on on this subject and I wont.
