There is lots of crazy things ive witnessed over the years, but something G rated... I remember a screaming match between my Head chef and Sous chef over the use of meat glue on valentines day 3 hours before service we were behind on prep and trying to sort out the finishing touches on our amuse bouche for the night, then the Sous chef walked out. The Head chef then called for a whole new amuse for the night, never had to work so hard in my life especially with a hangover.
