I am the leader of the server revolution! Taking the power away from the customers and putting it back in the hands of the bartenders and servers. Yelp off!!!

Hot Girls Found Eating in Restaurant

mean girlsThe ideas are a-flowing to bring more business restaurants. I always appreciate any effort to help put money into my pockets, but sometimes the ideas are worse than no business at all.  Right now, at my restaurant, the PR team has gone into their think tank and come out with something that not only doesn’t bring in business, but also does the thing that annoys me the most:  It doesn’t make me any money.

Their plan:  Bring in Hot/ Skinny/ Annoying girls to eat and drink for free in the restaurant, with the idea that people will see them and say, “Wow!  If Hot/ Skinny/ Annoying girls eat at this place, then not only is the food good, it will make you look Hot/ Skinny/ and Annoying.  I want what they have!”  And yes, it is possible to look “annoying.”

The other night, the HSA girls sat in my section.  Never once was there a “thank-you,” a “please,” or a “Would you please direct me to the bathroom so I can stick my finger down my throat” from any of these girls.  It was more like,

“Where is the bread?”

“We need more drinks!”

“Why is the service so slow?”

And this was on a Saturday night, so we were busy in the restaurant.  My priorities shifted to the guests who were ACTUALLY paying for their food and drink, so they deserved to have great service.  The only thing that the HSA girls deserved was to have some cheeseburgers.  Seriously, they need to eat.  To quote a line from one of my favorite movies, Mr. Mom, these girls are so skinny, “they can hula-hoop with a Cheerio.”

Until next time… Server’s don’t pay their rent with compliments.

“Bitter.  Party of 1?  Your table is ready.”

This is my 200th blog post! A monumental day for any struggling blogger.  So what better way than to write about my experience with a cusstomer who is bigger than life.  Seriously, the guy is huge, and his name is Suge Knight. My wife and I recently saw the movie, “Straight Outta Compton.”  Great flick.… Continue Reading

The Invisible Waiter

I’m standing at the table.  My pen is in my hand and I have my notepad open.  This is my way of telling you that it is time to order the food that you want to put in your mouth.  It’s okay to finish your sentence, or get to the punchline of the joke that… Continue Reading

Dine and Credit

It’s 2015 and customers still don’t know how to use their credit cards in a restaurant.  You’ve eaten, you’ve had your alcohol, and now it’s time to pay the check.  Right now, I work in a hotel restaurant, so the check shows the total along with a place to put your room number and sign… Continue Reading

Cover My Shift!!!

The anxiety of trying to get your shift covered at a serving job ranks up there with wondering if the pee stick is going to turn positive or negative after a long night of having shots with your coworkers, and you ended up hooking up with one of them.  Eventually, the pregnancy scare turns out… Continue Reading

1 Fish 2 Fish Whole Fish Means the Whole F#&king Fish!

People don’t know how to read anymore, or they are reading selectively.  Whatever the case, customers are not using their brains and are making themselves look like idiots.  Sounds like any Friday night in the restaurant biz. I had a lady order the Dorade.  It says on the menu that it is a “whole fish.”… Continue Reading

The Waffle Versus the Egg

“We’re vegetarian.  We don’t eat egg or egg white,” they told me for the tenth time in less than an hour.  I get it.  You’re from a part of the world that worships cows and you don’t consume animal products, but you are getting on my last nerve.  And I was on my last nerve… Continue Reading

The Butter Knife

I’ve noticed that the majority of customers that come into my restaurant know which silverware to eat with for each course.  But this blog is not for the majority of customers that come into my restaurant, it is for the the people who live life on the edge, by trying to cut their steak with… Continue Reading

#TBT Throw Bad Tips

It’s like quicksand.  Meaning, that the more I struggle to get out of the restaurant industry, the more I sink into to it.  At this moment, I can’t even get fired from my current gig, and I’m not even knocking on wood. Summer can be a lonely time for those of us that work far… Continue Reading
