Today, I started work at catering company. I was aware that I'd be cleaning dishes, but they forgot to warn me how many. Needless to say, after polishing 527 glasses, my hands hurt. FML

Well, it's a catering company. It's not uncommon for a catering company to cater large events.

Impressive that you managed to keep track of how many you cleaned.

Yes, 31 by 17 is a wired number combination. Maybe 40 a set, 13 set and 3 broken...

i bet you're "shattered"!

Sounds like they found a great way to put your OCD to use. You people tend to be great cleaners.

The job didn't cater to your desires of how much work you wanted to do?

Oh cool, you're from my hometown.

Did u think catering was a party of 4?

Not sure what you expected since it was a catering company... such companies usually do things like 100+ seat events and often (if they are big enough) multiple events per day... although I do wonder about their lack of commercial grade cleaning equipment so cleaning glasses by hand isn't required.

They likely do have something to clean and sanitize their dishes but those machines will still leave water drop marks on the glasses and need to be spot cleaned/polished, which is what I suspect OP is referencing.

Especially since OP specifically mentioned polishing glasses. :)

Whaaaaaa! You had to do work. Did your Mom call your boss and complain for you?

Welcome to the catering world...glasses are hard to deal with...but i wouldnt change my job for the world!!!
