Cooking Up All The Answers

, , , | Right | October 12, 2018

(I am a line cook in a restaurant that is inside a hotel. This exchange occurs when I am passing through another part of the hotel. I am in full uniform: chef hat, double-breasted chef coat with the hotel name and logo embroidered on it, apron, baggy pants, and chef clogs.)

Guest: “Excuse me?”

Me: “Yes, ma’am?”

Guest: “Is there a restaurant on the premises?”

Me: *trying not to look down at my uniform* “Yes, ma’am, the restaurant is on the fourth floor.”

Guest: “Oh, good! What time is breakfast?”

Me: “We open for breakfast at 6:30 am, and we have a full buffet, as well as an extensive a la carte menu.”

Guest: “Do you have eggs?”

Me: “Yes, we have eggs.”

Guest: “Pancakes? Waffles?”

Me: “Yes, ma’am, those, too.”

Guest: “Is the food any good?”

Me: “Our food is excellent. Of course, my opinion may be biased, since I am a cook in the restaurant.”

Guest: “Oh, really? I didn’t know that! Well, thank you so much!”
