Today, my boss told me that there is no point in making me cut onions anymore because every time I do, I look like I've "been beaten", and can't be seen by the customers for at least half an hour. FML

Check with your doctor, OP. You might be having an allergic reaction.

Chewing gum always works for me, but is it bad that you don't have to cut onions anymore?

I tear up just at the thought of cutting onions. You're not alone, OP.

I had to cut 3 50 LB bags of onions once for the restaurant I worked at..Yeah-I used a chopper to cut them, but still had to cut off the top/bottom and peel...That was murder to me (and chewing gum helped up until the 10th onion)..lol

I work in a produce department at a grocery store and we recently discovered that people wearing contacts seem to be immune to onions.

No but id prefer to do food prep instead of serving customers, i can take my time with prep

Wear something to cover your nose the only reason people cry when cutting onions is when you smell the gas the onion emits

I heard it was the fluids sprinkling in your eyes. So then it's diving glasses you need ;)

I've heard both these things so I breath through my mouth and wear my glasses but it only puts off the pain for a bit longer D:

Hey, at least you don't gotta do it anymore.

Chewing gum whilst cutting onions prevents tears and inflammation, try it out.

Well, your boss could have put that better.

Look on the bright side OP! Your boss cares about you and you don't have to cut onions anymore! :)

I think he cares more about the customers and his business because he doesn't want his customers to have to see an employee that looks like she's been beaten.

Wow #35, Way to be optimistic!

Cut them underwater?

While scuba diving

And 1000 leagues under the sea

In the sealab underneath the water

Due to the crying? Either way the gloves should prevent any sort of reaction to a wide extent But if it's due to crying chew gum while cutting it cuts down on the reaction...
