Tonight was my fourth night of training! It was pretty dead for the first hour but then it picked up a bit seeing as how it was game night for some local schools around us. I was on food running duty tonight, if you don’t know what that means it’s just when the food is cooked I delivered it to the tables. It’s supposed to help you know what food looks like and where the tables are at. That’s the theory. In reality a lot of girls get super bitchy when you try to take their food out! Its absolutely ridiculous. I had girls multiple times take the food out of my hands at bring it to the table. I mean I guess this probably helps their tips if they see the table more often but I cant see it doing incredible things to the tip just to bring food out. And its not like I was willy nilly going and taking their food to the tables, the manager told me to do it so that’s what my ass was doing. Whatever though yes there was some rude asses there tonight but I also met some really sweet girls who were really helping me out.
And I had a table ask if I would be their waitress! Whoop whoop! Here is the story, there was a big bachelor party in that another girl…we will call her Momma bear cuz she was so sweet making sure I knew everything. Well Momma Bear got stuck with this table of 14 on top of her other tables she had so when she got a table of three guys I went over and took their drink orders and asked if they wanted food and stuff. She was able to take them from there but I would still stop by every so often to make sure they were good. Well I was waiting to bring food to tables and one of the guys came and got me and asked if I would be their waitress because she was so slow. And that I was just so awesome at my job blah blah blah. Yes I was super complimented but I did proceed to tell him that she has a table of 14 plus all her tables so she is in a bit of a hurry. So I went and sat with them for a while, and talked and they seemed pretty cool. One was even pretty cute. Well here comes the kicker, they asked what I was doing after work and I said just hanging out with the bf..you know hinting that I have one and that whatever plans you are about to ask me to join on I will not be coming. Pretty simple thing to understand right? Nope. They proceeded to tell me that they are in town from Texas and staying at a hotel nearby and I could come hang out my bf wouldn’t know. Hold up. You are asking me to come to a HOTEL by myself and hang out with three guys I don’t know?! You def need to stop smoking that crack pipe babe. I said I wouldn’t be able to and whatever but it made me laugh. I was glad they saw I was working hard and appreciated it but really a hotel offer? Come on!
Other than that really nothing at all happened tonight. We got to embarrass a bachelor and sing a birthday song. So it was good I got to hear the songs, even though I still don’t know the words to them. That will come with time I think. I also realized how good it is to be nice to the cooks, and im not saying befriend them just so they will help you out but really I saw first hand how being rude to them can affect you later. I am naturally a chatty person so I got to know the cooks and other staff and I really like a few of them but one especially we tease back and forth and he helps figure out what food is what and made sure I knew where tables were and stuff. Well this one girl, who we will call Miss Priss thinks she is miss hott stuff and she seriously throws a fit at least once a shift. Well she is always so bitchy to the kitchen staff and anyone really that no one goes out of their way to help her. Tonight she forgot to ring in her food order for a table and she went and asked the cooks to make it next but no one was going to risk their jobs to do her favors so her table got super mad and complained to the manager and she is getting written up! Its not just from this she is getting written up, its just that this was the final straw I think. The managers don’t like to write people up because if you can only get written up three times then you are fired so they don’t just randomly write people up. This was her second write up so she better watch herself!
My next shift is Monday at 530 and I will be staying till close that night so I can see how its done. But Monday I will be taking my menu test and I will be doing everything and someone will be following me so that they can make sure I do everything right. Then my next shift is probably Wednesday night and I get to keep my tips that night! Whoop whoop! I will only get a two table section so I don’t get too overwhelmed and I will do my manager shop that night (where I wait on the manager and they can see how I do with everything.) I was all worried though because I thought that I had to have a two table section for a couple of days then slowly get more tables shift by shift but I guess its only a two table section for one night! Which is good because I really think I can handle a bigger section and im ready to make some money!
Alright that is all for now I am off to sleep! And then studying tomorrow!
