All these years of working in restaurant kitchens are ruining my ears I fear. Can't be sure, but I think my tinnitus (ringing in the ears) has been caused by kitchen noise. In my current place, the expediter (on the cooks side of the pass) yells ORDER UP! at the top of his lungs every minute in a half right next to my head. Not to mention the vent hood, dish machine, clanging pots, clanging plates, and boom box on 11 during cleanup at night's end. Anybody else getting the ringing?
