“Get this thing out of my operating room!” The colon stapling device exploded into pieces when I hurled it against the operating room wall. I was fed up with its failure to work as advertised by the manufacturer. The stapler had probably cost less than $100 to make. The hospital paid $300 for it (and then billed the patient, or insurance company, $1,200). Now the thing didn’t even work.
I used to cook at an Olive Garden and, like all kitchens, sometimes it would get pretty busy - especially for the window cook. Some of you probably know the frustration of being a line cook, but I will try to explain it for those who haven’t had the pleasure and hopefully it’s a little interesting.
