Attempt at your own risk.

2. Hanger Is Very Real.

This is another serious warning, that shouldn’t require any kind of explanation.

4. People Will Make the Greatest OR Grossest Meal Requests.

Ah, creativity can be a wonderful, wonderful thing; until you are 15 modifiers deep on just one table and the kitchen is ready to kill you.

5. Everything You Thought You Knew About “Work Shoes” Was Wrong.

And you have slipped and fallen numerous times just testing all of your preconceived notions about sneakers and the elusive magic of grip.

7. Coworkers Are Your Best Allies.

Again, some have done without. But there’s nothing quite like having a group of people who will have each other’s backs, especially when you are all weeded.

8. Personality Is A Key Part Of Your Performance.

Don’t be the server with a chip on their shoulder. Just. Don’t.
