How did you guys survive during your years as a linecook? after working a couple jobs here I learned somethings. 1) It's a lot of fun 2)your social life goes down the drain 3) almost no time or tired to cook at home 4) s*** pay. the last 3 facts I've learned worries me about the future like If I suddenly had to raise a family. Might sound a little silly from a guy that isnt even dating to even worry about raising a family but my worse nightmare would be if I'm 30 years old working 65 hr/ week getting payed 15$ with a child and a spouse. I would have no time to raise the child and financially I could get through buy barely get by. I find that taking the path of a cook is taking an all or nothing gamble on my life .
