Why are cooks bad tempered?

Reward for the chef I've heard it said that cooks are bad tempered because they spend all of their time creating art in food, just to have it destroyed when it's eaten ...

Odd comment.

Odd opposite.

I served breakfast this morning (hey, the first Monday in *months* I wasn't training, and they say a change is as good as a rest!). And here's how the breakfast table ended up.

Am I bad tempered and disappointed at having my setup destroyed? No - quite the reverse, I'm delighted that my customers were very happy with their breakfast, did an "Oliver Twist" and asked for more that we were happy to provide ... and will be staying with us again next year when they're in town again.
