We got dinged by the health inspector because she caught some of the guys on the line with waterbottles. So now we got a memo forbidding waterbottles at your station. Commence rage!!! This is utter bull. Kitchens are hot sweaty places, and we shouldn't be forced to waste our breaktime or production time going to the break area just to rehydrate. I think I'd fricking die without my waterbottle chillin in the lowboy. Our old policy allowed the use of sports top bottles to minimize cross contamination and spillage issues, but that still wasn't good enough. What's the policy where you work? I've been at places that allowed free soda, free soda, but limitations on the number of cups you could use, water only, places that would set out pitchers of ice water on the line during service.
