The INTERNET is furious about the way the Waffle House waiters communicate with their chefs.
A person who claims to be a Waffle House employee has revealed how he prepares a plate of food so the chef knows exactly what to do instead of just taking orders word for word the old-fashioned way – and people have shocked.
“This is how Waffle House chefs mark up our plates so we know what we’re doing,” said one man using @hotsoupandcracker at the start. videotapes posted to TikTok.
“All the ways to pack the jelly on the left mean [eggs] too bright, too medium in the middle and all the way to the right, that’s it,” he explains as he moves a packet of grape jelly around the plate.
He then points out where a packet of jelly should be if someone wants their eggs cooked in the middle, like too pale to too medium, instead of one or the other.
“Now here is the omelet,” continued the worker, standing in the kitchen of an alleged Waffle House.
“When you flip the package aside, it means it’s an omelet.
“The top is ham, the right side is plain… the right side is sausage and the bottom is bacon.”
The poster added: “The same goes for when you’re building bread; you use a pickle to mark what kind of meat it is. ”
He then explains the different icon combinations for a sandwich, a melted patty, and a cheese omelet using grated cheese, a diced ham, and a pack of butter.
He ended the video by admitting that he certainly provided a lot of information in a small amount of time, but hoped that people “liked” his presentation.
The man’s video has drawn a flurry of shocked and skeptical reviews, with one dedicated protester even arguing with the creator over the content.
“For those who don’t know, this is not real. He read the ticket,” the person stated.
However, the poster hit back, saying that the user “obviously never worked at Waffle House”.
The skeptic argues: “It is overwhelmingly superior, adding that the system built for “dummies” and “real chefs” does not work at Waffle House.
However, in one follow-up videotapes, TikToker took viewers into the alleged kitchen of Waffle House once again and even put up a sign explaining what each icon means.
“I don’t cappin’ man. Literally, we’re that complicated,” he said.
Meanwhile, other viewers expressed their shock that Waffle House used such a system.
“This makes me angry,” one person complained.
“This is why they always do it wrong?” another question.
The third TikToker wrote: “How long did it take you to solve this… I can tell you as a challenge.
“What would my anxiety be like; “No, we’re fine.”
Waffle House’s vice president of public relations, Njeri Boss, weighed in on the debate with a comment to The Sun.
“Our marking system is as secret as a Coca-Cola recipe, but we just keep it hidden,” she said.
“Before our marking system, our chefs cooked entirely by memory.
“Over the years, some of our chefs have developed ‘labels’ that they use to help support their memory and a comprehensive system has been born.”
TikTokers had a similar reaction to an employee believed to be Outback Steakhouse, who claimed the restaurant cooked their lobster in the microwave.
“Is it legal to put lobster in the microwave?” One shocked user commented.
However, another viewer said they were not surprised at all.
