    Have you ever said something that just didn’t just didn’t come out right?
    For instance:
    Last night I said to a cook “oh and grab my sausage”…..trying to indicate the sausage was down below in the lowboy…
    He said to me… “I don’t think I know you well enough”.

    Of course my standard favorite is… "hot behind_______<(insert name)”

    Funny phrases, please share…

    When I say something like that, It is almost inevitable someone says, "thats what she said."

    Not very tasteful, but not meant to be anything but professional at the time... LOL

    Full crowd at lunch at the German restaurant. I'm in back cooking with the old sausage maker training me to take over -- he's stuffing the mix into the tube, I realize we've got to get another batch going -- so I say (as I am rushing into the walk-in) "I'll go in while you pump!" And in case you don't get the visual, he's pumping meat through a "tube" with his right hand, while with his left holding a casing filling with meat (which later we wound into links).

    Immature, I know, but sometimes you just have to go there, no matter how impervious you think you are ;)
