Once a spoonie, always a spoonie. But hopefully not.

1. When you first start work there the "training to be perfect" badge marks you out as the newbie.

It might be embarrassing, but at least it's an excuse when you can't carry the plates.

2. The official induction into being a "spoonie" could not be more cringe.

"Are you a social spoonie or a sporty spoonie?" – Just no.

Especially as spoonie is also slang for someone with a chronic illness.

3. The 50% food discount on shift and 20% the rest of the time isn't half bad.

But you know most other pubs do give all their employees free food while they're working.

6. The worst is when they run out of what you wanted before you've had a chance to have your break.

Usually the steak on steak club night.

7. Wetherspoon's have a habit of making you into a walking advertisement.

8. Some additions to the uniform are worse than others.

13. It seems like at least half of customers forget to check their table number before they order.

So they do that awkward thing where they vaguely point in a direction and you have to try to work out their table number.

19. You have to deal with hen and stag dos on a weekly basis.

You can't decide if putting up with their screaming while they're there or cleaning up their mess afterwards is the worst part.

21. Especially the ones who come in for their breakfast pint every day.
