I supported and put myself through college waiting tables. The restaurant business is not for the faint of heart, and Bourdain describes it well. It is a rough life, and not easy even for servers. I take pride in my waitressing days--I was damn good, and made good money. A great server is priceless. Have a bad server and you'll see what I mean.

I loved reading this. It brought me back to those days. And whatever he says about the sex, drugs, and drinking are all true.
I laugh at friends and colleagues who are afraid to eat certain foods, or who wrinkle their noses at items left out of the fridge for a couple of hours--they should see what goes on in restaurant kitchens!
