In this series, food and drink professionals dish to Gut Check about their pet peeves anonymously -- but honestly.

Gut Check Code Name: The Milk Dud

Position: Concessionaire, St. Louis movie theater

Pet Peeve #1

Milk Dud: "I hate -- hate -- when people throw money at you. That happens more than you think. Especially when they do it bill by bill."

Other customer: "Stripper style?"

Milk Dud: "Yeah! It's a soda. I'm not gonna take my clothes off."

Pet Peeve #2

Milk Dud: "If you're gonna sneak it in, sneak it out. I don't feel like cleaning up your White Castle boxes. Or Boone's Farm bottles."

Pet Peeve #3

Milk Dud: "Don't get mad if I don't know you're a student or a senior. Our student cutoff is 25, and our senior cutoff age is 55. But how am I supposed to know? I can't read minds."
