Took a really nice photo of my commis chef's pride and joy, his car, sent it off to AutoTrader and Exchange and Mart. At the bargin knock down price of £400 because he was 'emigrating'!! with his mobile number and wait for the phone calls to roll in!
Days and Days and Days of fun!
had something similar with my old exec chef and one of the sous.
the exec had ordered a porsche and had a few issues with delivery times etc and was getting a bit cheesed off as he was spending quite a large sum of money.
one of the sous wrote a letter on porsche headed paper stating that due to an incident at the factory where the car had been crushed, he woud have to go to the back of the waiting list, very well written and totally convincing, this was sent 2 days before the supposed delivery date of the car. when the chef got it, he went bananas, totally flipped and lost the plot, he spent most of the morning calling porsche and swearing down the phone at any poor sod who happened to pick up.
the sous eventually 'fessed up, and you would have thought he might have calmed down, but didn't see the funny side for some time and tore strips off the sous for the remainder of the day.
