Howdy! I'm joining in too so it's nice to know I won't be the only newbie. As for job quitters etc I think many people believe the only way they'll "make it" is through something like this. Fame, fame fame/infamy has become the be all and end all for too many people. Or they can't afford to quit a job for the amount of time it would take to work through a restaurant career, which is most likely decades vs 3 months. Plus the world seems to be over-run with people who "made it" nearly instantly, so they might think it's easy.
