It Was A Madhouse Tonight

I honestly don’t know what is going on at work but tonight we had these huge parties. Easily we did over 600 covers tonight. I had a 3 table section and did 37 covers. My average cheque was extremely low for the second night in a row with 50% of my net sales being paid […]

Flipping The Tables Tonight

I made after tip out $178 serving 45 guests during the evening. It seems like no one in my section wanted to drink alcohol tonight. Pepsi and diet pepsi and that was it. No ice and with ice. I had a low average cheque cause of it but what can you do. You gotta give […]

You Can’t Just Work for Money

Oh I know what you are thinking? What is this! A waiter who doesn’t care about what he makes in tips?? Hey of course I care about how much I make. I want to make as much as I can but what about if I just wanted to make money for no reason? Here is […]

My Top 5 Jobs Beginning With Number 5

Over the past 3 decades I have had plenty of jobs. Some not so good and others not bad while a few were memorable. It is no coincidence that the jobs I stayed with the longest I liked the most. All except for one I worked with over a year. I like to think of […]
