It’s hot as balls back here and Dylan keeps throwing prawn bits at me. Fuck off, I say, but he doesn’t.
When I first started here I was at the cold station, but now I’m at the fryer.
Chef said we’ve got some VIPs coming in tonight, but none of us ever want to know who.
We did three hundred and nine covers last night which might not sound like a lot but if you saw the size of our dining room, you’d get it.
Turns out the VIPs are a hockey player and his family, some old guy who doesn’t play anymore but is on the Sports Network now. I couldn’t give a fuck about hockey but I know more than to open my mouth in this kitchen. Dylan played AAA before having one too many concussions. He stares at the guy all night, grinding his teeth, flipping steaks on the grill.
