Tonight is the eve of the most dreaded, horrid, and awful day in the world for the restaurant world: Mother's Day.
Maybe not the most dreaded for business owners.. After all, they're busy trying to shove and squeeze last minute reservations in the book even though it appears that it is booked!
The wheelchairs, the walkers.. All out in full force tomorrow.
Snobby sons and ditsy daughters. Many of them seeing mom for the first time since they chose to take her out of the home a year ago.. Most likely on Mother's Day.
"Get anything you want mom."
"I just want pudding, or a sandwich."
Mom eats half a cup of soup and sandwich while the kids dine away on prime rib and shrimp scampi. Ain't life grand?
I never understood why exactly Mother's Day was the busiest restaurant day of the year. It's unpleasant beyond mom's wildest expectations.
Even the nicest and best restaurants end up serving lackluster food, cramping too many people in, and end up with slow service. It's the time to not be at a restaurant.
But it's the kids that think it all up. "Let's take mom out this year!"
A rose, or carnation, and a steak dinner. Or chicken dinner. Or just soup. "I'm not hungry."
Back to the home.
It's going to be over soon, servers. But get ready: The worst is yet to come. And when it's 9pm on the East Coast it will only be 6pm on the West. Good luck all.
Keep smiling.. Make it out alive.
AND be forewarned: It never fails, at least one worker will be a no-show on Mother's Day.
