: You think that every server who comes to your table with a plastic smile is a huge people person who loves their job? Think again! Why do you think we're so friendly?? because you are giving us money...that's it! That's why i'm so 'nice'.. No one i have ever waited on would suspect me of writing like this, they love me... And i love them, or so they think :) I really like my job, it's moderately easy most of the time, i walk out with cash every night, and i also have racked up many stories about human beings that just make people laugh.
: And as far as closing policies go, i have been yelled at by people who come in AFTER the posted closing time. I tell them the kitchen is closed and they reply with 'do you know how far i drove to get here? what am i supposed to do now?'
: and 2 HOURS after posted closing? damn.. the longest you are legally allowed to be working after closing time is 30 minutes, 30 minutes of clean-up.. its some labor law..
: And if it is extrememly dead it saves everyone money by closing early.. like i said, your $50 check doesn't pay for the wait staff, kitchen staff, busboys, electricity, heat, water.. and all that stuff to stay on the extra hour... :)
Michele - You have a SERIOUS attitude problem. Maybe you've just been in the business too long and are extremely bitter. People like you are the reason many restaurants lose repeat business. If you hate your job so much, why don't you do something else? Or are you just waitressing instead of going to college and getting a real job? Maybe you should consider being a stripper - that way you could still hate all your customers, but you'd be making like 10 times more money. You're probably not attractive enough, though. Maybe that's another reason you're so bitter....
