Waffle House has an incredibly interesting notation system so that their cooks know what to make, and any cook can go to a new WH and immediately start working: https://www.flickr.com/photos/nickgray/378694469

Ah yes, the Magic Marker system. I haven't worked at Waffle House for... oh, 20 years. I still remember Magic Marker.

Apparently they've added to the Magic Marker system since then!

Wow! I knew Waffle House cooks used pickles as a way to keep track of some orders. I did not know that system was so clever.
