If it's "hoof" and "hooves", it's "dwarf" and "dwarves", and it's "shelf" and "shelves", then why isn't it "chef" and "cheves"?

Not that bad, for whole day, the soup of the day at my work was Split Pee. How appetizing.

'Cuz you never mess w/ people who handle your food and bevs! lol

Because English, that's why.

Don't mention it to them. Otherwise, they'll give you a box of "cum in" and you will foolishly assume it's cumin.

Bad spelling doesn't matter as long as everybody else on-site reading said words knows what the chefs mean. However, ordering same-named items from vendors/ suppliers won't "fly!" lol I once had (what I didn't know until after the fact) a non-English-speaking chef put onions on my pizza because he didn't know that the waittress' notation of "-O" on the order meant (for her reference) to put extra oregano on the side when delivered at the table. LOL!

OP, then I certainly hope that the ingredient/ food item literally called "for shit" isn't ever ordered by a customer at your restaurant 'cuz it will thus be left out of his dinner due to its misunderstood misspelling! ;-) LOL!

I have known a lot of chefs from working in restaurants for years. I know that a lot of chefs start out via apprenticeships. For a lot of them, that means they quit school to take up a trade. Spelling doesn't mean much when you are in the kitchen as long as people know what you mean. Kitchens are often very fast-paced which means chefs/apprentices don't have time to make sure their spelling is correct. Its rude to make assumptions.

Reminds me of the time my doctor wrote that I'd broken my "tow."

Close enough. Can't be mistaken for "Netmag" or "pepar".

Did you expect something different? Aside from everything being abbreviated, by the time ur a chef you've killed so many brain cells I'm surprised some of them can right(kidding)write at all. Maybe they should get the dish dog to transcribe!
