Is the most tiring thing I've ever done
Worse than running 10km in 45 mins, by far
if there's a war.
try working down a mine. for 12 hours. at minute.
It will get worse in July/August, believe me. I used to sweat like a bitch and it was not nice. Are the people you work with nice, or are you stuck in a corner on your own?
but I am stuck in a corner
and i sweated like a bitch
I washed up in a restaurant one night a week for two years at school.
I fucking hated it.
Has anyone in the history of the world ever washed up in a restaurant as they couldn't afford the bill or is this purely a narrative device in children's comics?
"drink Ginger Ale! It's refreshing and good!"
man I was disappointed when I found out that wasn't trure
no, actually. it isn't.
and worked there two nights a week 'til I was 16. How's that for Pythonesque oneupsmanship? The worst part is that soggy fronted T-shirt at the end of the shift clinging to you. Or finding a wet bit of mushroom in your pocket and wondering how that happened.
you get used to it pretty quickly.
I was really tired for my first week or so, after that just got used to it.
you were right about the majorly greasy hair as well
a backwards Red Sox cap and you are set.
I really did look strange cos I always wore my german army shirt.
I was named Hans by some of the customers, and Capt. Potwash by the staff. This was changed to Capt. Tequila after I got totally ripped at the christmas party.
the landlord took against him for being a student, and upon finding my friend struggling to lift three of those wooden picnic tables you get in beer gardens, memorably noted:
"You go to Oxford fukk'n University an you can't carry more tables than that?"
washing dishes for more than 5 hours.
that my brother ran. One night I hid the pans in the oven, because I wanted to go home. He fired me three times in total. My mum made him give me the job back each time. In the end I stormed out, and had the last laugh.
We should organise a trip and specifically leave a tip for the pot washer.
Oh, and get a bandana/head scarf thing a la Danielsan from Karate Kid
My walk to work is 3 miles and takes me through meadows of wildflowers, and I've seen kingfishers and kestrels. So it's pretty awesome!
Also, I can attest to the quality of the food/standard of hygiene. It's extremely high.
g better than working in Salford. Except for the 8 hours of washing up.
It was just also intensely exhausting and surprisingly high-pressured! LOLZ
If I get a free ten minutes, I go and wash some cutlery. Very soothing.
I hated it when i had to wash up, by in large the hardest job of the lot and I have done it all in that place. I got 10 complaints in one day once, all for water spots but Hove is Brighton for cunts and it showed! OOOOO how it showed
it fucking is.
:) i feel at home here.
i used to be a waiter, then moved to a another pub and became the dish pig. what a down grade, it's rubbish.
ah well, at least it's only one task, i'd rather that than be rushing about a restaurant trying to find tables with no numbers and then getting complained at because their toad in the hole is cold and their stilton slices have too much 'crust' on them (i love the crust!)
boring-but-easy typing and admin temp jobs FTW.
