Well you see, these things take time. You’ll have to wait until the Democrats get back in charge to see any positive results.

I can accept a certain amount of racism/sexism/homophobia from the exceptionally old. It's not good, but holding someone born before the depression to the same standards as even a 50 year old just doesn't make a lot of sense.

After all, someone who was old enough to live through WW2 in France just didn't have the same opportunity to see the dangers of racism/sexism/homophobia like our enlightened modern citizens.

Just because they're old doesn't mean it's okay for them to be any of those things. Being racist, sexist, or homophobic made you a bad person then, and it makes you a bad person now. Some things do transcend generations.

The internet in my town went down in the middle of our breakfast rush, killing our ability to process credit cards.

Being a little diner we have no system in place to handle credit card payments offline.

I haven't drank this much whiskey in a long time.

Long story short, I bragged about my mad pickle making skills and now after trying them my KM is ready to tell US Foods "gently caress you, there's a new pickle in town" and I'm gonna be making our pickles in-house. I've got full rein of "just let me know what you need, and I'll order it".

Problem is, I have no loving idea how to scale this up. Can anyone here tell me approximately how many pounds, or cases, or whatever of Kirby cukes it takes to fill a 5 gallon bucket? When they're sliced?

A lot of newer credit cards don't push the numbers out enough to work on one of those now. The fancy Chase ones have the numbers slightly embossed, I haven't had to try it, but I don't think they would work on those and I also regularly see ones where the numbers are just printed on the side.

Thank you! Is that raw cukes, and what kind?

My biggest blindspot as a cook is that I absolutely suck at estimating sizes. Happens in all aspects of my life; if I see a highway sign saying RIGHT LANES CLOSES 1000 FT, I have no loving clue what 1000 ft is. In the kitchen I'm good with eyeballing small measures up to like 2 cups, but past that? Pyrex and scales are my friends.

They’re pickling cucumbers, beyond that I’m not positive. They look like all the top results for Kirby cukes on GIS, though.

E: and yes, they’re raw.

Thanks again!

I can say that in my latest gig doing mostly short-order fry stuff: I have gained an incredible sense of time from one to four minutes. I'll drop catfish in the fryer, go do something else, and just before the timer goes off I get wavy lines above my head like Spider-man, look over, and it's 3 seconds left. Much of my waking day is now spent in 4 or less minute increments. If I ever develop Korsakoff's syndrome from all my drinking, I'm still good to go as a fry cook.

Still can't estimate how many quart containers I need to portion out catfish, though.

yeah, couldn't you just get enough cucumbers to slice for a liter worth and do math from there? not that asking in here isn't an equally acceptable method

I have never been responsible for making huge batches of anything so honestly asking or if there's some dark scaling magic

Don't do it by hand though jesus christ. Get some sort of slicer for it. Especially if you're gonna be doing it regularly.

Nah, you need to come back at 6:40 so you can put water on the tables (or if it's a properly staffed place, tell the busser to do it for you).
