Took a few weeks off from the restaurant scene.. it is a second job after all. Came back swinging tonight with another wedding ..
A few notes of randomness with past and present on the mind:
1) Owners and managers: If you write a note for employees to do something *since you're too afraid of confrontation to say it to their faces* make sure it's spelled right. Also, don't use slang.. it's a little tacky. For example, don't say "If you're gonna start a wash load finish it" .. The proper English may be: "Please make sure all laundry is completed before leaving." That's a little better, eh?
2) Workers, employees, bartenders: Stop sneaking drinks behind the backs of owners. Seriously, you're that much of lushes that you can't wait until either a) the shift ends or b) you get home and pay for your own? You're that desperate that you have to steal from the employer?
3) Wedding planners: Please, seriously, what's with this new fad of chair covers? I know, it's been a while since this has come about.. but it's hardly helpful to servers that are tripping on gigantic oversized pink bows on the backs of chairs with covers that hang too low to the floor that you're almost tripping your way to spilled coffee or a tray of broken dishes.
Just a few thoughts.. Also .. another note: Where exactly did summer go and why didn't it want to stay just a little longer..?
