Been a long time since I worked in a kitchen, but that's a mighty accurate list.

You wake up in the middle of the night and realize you forgot to order something and send to your rep a desperate e-mail or leave a voice mail " Hey Sales rep , I hope it is not too late , i need ..... for tomorrow please , you will save my ass man..."
You refer your knives pictures as "family portrait"....
You find tasting spoons or tickets in your pockets instead of coins or keys...
You inhale 12 oz steak in less then 5 minutes and say to yourself "dammit , got to remember to eat slow next time" in reality you will not...
Even you are at gas station or bank , when you see a employee lean on counter you want to scream" you got time to lean ,you got time clean!"
when you finish busy service only thing in your mind is ice cold beer (I usually find myself singing "nothing compares to you " with my first sip )
Even you work in an environment with full of food , when you come home from 14 hour shift you realize only thing you ate was a piece of bread , taste of bearnaise and an half ounce of end trimming of a lamb loin all day...

Great post!! I copied and pasted it as an email to some of the chef's I have worked for over the years... I always say "behind" everywhere I go... I also knock on doors before I open them (like I am coming out of the cooler)... Too funny..

You become increasingly aware of and insanely angry at everyone else's ineffeciency and lack of hustle.

You know you're a chef when...

-You sent someone for a can of roux
-You rubbed a habanero on the rim of your fellow line mate's beer or coke bottle
-You've pored fish sauce in their next drink as well
-You silently cringe every time someone finds out you're a chef and asks you "what's your specialty"
-When someone shows you a burn scar it somehow becomes a competition with a least three other cooks
-Duct tape is the preferred band aid of choice
-Your significant other can't enjoy a nice dinner out because all you do is pick it apart
