An old Chef of mine (I'll call him Monroe) from Phoenix wanted to hear a story about our old Executive Chef J. Now Monroe really wasn't too keen on J's rules and general Boy Scoutedness. There's a few key things for you to know about Chef J to make this post make sense. So let me give you some background.
Chef J (and our head steward) used to search the employee housing weekly (where I lived) to ensure the interns and/or current residents were living to code. Heck, we weren't allowed to have food in our rooms, all meals were supposed to be eaten at the resort or somewhere on the town. Which sucked. One day he stole the vanilla wafer cookies I had hidden in my sock drawer. Swear to God. Never got written up for it, but the empty package was in the trash... With no cookies!
With that I decided a prank was in order.
Our fearless cookie thieving leader also had stickers of his face made to put on the tops of the spice rub jars the resort sold and/or gave away as amenities. With a small distraction from an unnamed intern I was able to lift a roll of the stickers. Good thing the statute of limitations is over in this epic crime of mine. Later, I went back to the employee housing and proceeded to hang out with a coworker in their room. After some drinking, the coworker decided to run some laundry. I was still in the room, and made it to the restroom. I quickly turned off the water valve and flushed the toilet to drain the tank. I then dried off the bowl with a wad of Kleenex and stuck a bunch of stickers (of Chef J's head) to the bottom. I then turned the water valves back on and walked out of the washroom.
The epic part of the plan was this was one of the last nights the neighbor was in town. They ran a shorter internship.
And after they were gone, the chef had to inspect their room with the head steward.
Word is the head steward caught the prank only after he'd used the facilities. And he was the one that had to scrape the stickers off of the basin.
And that's what you get for stealing my cookies, jerks.
