"My mother asked me the other day if eating the coating that flakes off of the non-stick pans was good for you. Does it have minerals in it or something. Is it a metal? You're a chef, right...you know that kinda thing...or don't you learn that kinda thing in cooking school?"
Me- "It's toxic."
C- "Are you some kinda doctor then? Is that a chef's jacket or a doctor's jacket?"
