Egg on my face

As a trainee cook do­ing my in­tern­ship in a Ja­pa­nese-owned ho­tel, I learnt to make omelettes us­ing chop­sticks – no prob­lem. But when we had to mag­i­cally flip the omelette in the pan with­out us­ing any im­ple­ments, I just could not do it. One guy told me to

“hit harder”, which I did – but the omelette not only turned, it turned a few times and smacked me hard in the face, then landed on the floor. I had to use an ice pack on my nose and was the butt of jokes for quite a while. – Karen W Teo via Face­book
