May I Make a Suggestion

As I stroll into my morning shift on a fine Tuesday morning, I find posted on the wall a suggestion card that a customer of mine had put it the suggetion box. It read "Lana is an Excellent waitress!" It was great to see such a awesome comment about me for not only me but everyone to appreciate! Now I'm randomly asking " Has anyone checked the suggestion box?" Lol So May I make a Suggestion to give praise to the Great Service Provider when it is due. Ah, Life as a Waitress!

time is money

So with a broken toe and a fierce limp, I serve a customer with her pancakes and realize she needs syrup. I say "oops I'll be right back with some syrup for you" As I walk away she says "Sometime today!" Well that just bought her an extra 3 minute wait!! Ah, Life as a Waitress!

Chip on His Shoulder

As one of my daily customers sits at the bar I look over at him and say "Hey Zelmo, you have a chip on your shoulder." He replies in confusement "What?" Look! Theres a chip on your shoulder! He looks and says "OH, I do" Picks the chip up off his shoulder and eats it! Ah, Life as a Waitress!

Liver, Anyone?

I have Two customers sitting at the bar. One customer is eating a Liver and Onion dinner and the other is simply drinking a beer. When I ask the lady eating her Liver "hows the Liver?" The guy drinking replies " Its great." You can imagine the look on my face! Ah, Life as a Waitress!

Running Circles

It's funny how in every restaurant I've worked in theres Always the older server who insists that they are the best and they can "Run Circles around us young ducks." I remember being so annoyed by this and thinking "Yeah Right." Now that I am an older server I know I am the best and I really can "Run Circles around these young ducks." Ah, Life as a Waitress!

It Never Ends....

Oh yes, a day off does not mean you will be able to relax. It means that you will get a break from employees and be able to juggle 5 plates in one hand while tripping over the dog and dodging the kids on the way to your own dinner table. Ah, Life as a Waitress!

Blinded by the Moment

A man comes in the restaurant. He sits at the bar which is convienently located near the t.v. He tells me that he has just had eye surgery and that is why he has sunshades on. I then respond a moment later to break the silence with "heres the remote, you may watch whatever you like". As I walk away I giggle and think to myself, Self can he even see the television?

Thought of the Day

Theres nothing better than listening to "For Whom the Bells Tolls" to get you motivated for work as a Waitress! :)
