So, AMA, please offer me your stories and advice regarding food service industry jobs and/or culinary school education. Is school a "waste" or was my friend just stressing the fact that school isn't the only avenue to a job in that industry?
Also, if you've worked in a restaurant, will you share with me your stupid/rude customer stories? I love that shit.
ETA: Thanks for all the comments - You all have given me much to think about!
