This is a question Restaurants, Kitchens and Bars... Oh my!

Many years ago, I went out with a chef. Kitchens are merely vice dens with food. You couldn't move for people bonking and snorting coke in the store room. And the things they did with the food...

My personal vice was chocolate mousse - I remember it being very calming in all the chaos around me. I think they put things in it.

Tell us your stories of working in kitchens, bars and the rest of the nightmare that is the catering trade.

aaah, McD's tips
I used to love my job at McD's - it was comfortably one of the best paying jobs I ever had.

McD's always had offers on - employees get cheap food, students get free burgers, that kind of thing. I always worked drive thru - no one else wanted it because you had to enter the order at one end, and someone else served it, making it impossible to rob. See where this is going yet? Yep, nearly every meal I sold was an employee meal (£1.20 off), every cheeseburger/hamburger that was sold with a meal was for a student (60/70p off). Occasionally someone would, ahem, present a £10 voucher (these were never accounted for). This money lived underneath my till until I had enough to swap it for a note, at which point my till would inexplicably be noticed to be a right mess and need a good sorting out. I also found out that the tea stirrers, when bitten in just the right way, work brilliantly as a managers key, so when managers changed over, meaning I could do my own refunds etc when it got quiet.

Overall, I used to pull in about £150 a night on this scam, and never got caught. Student life was good.
