I guess the only piece of advice I would like to give to any service professional out there is never take anything for granted. As a waiter if a table says their food is good check back later and see if they are still enjoying the meal by saying something like , everybody doing okay […]
You always get a few remarks on your last day which might indicate people’s mood toward the place in which they work. Some of the ones are: 1. I wish I was the one that was leaving. 2. Wish it was my last night. 3. You are a nice guy and smart getting out now […]
The other night I am working and this lady orders a chicken caesar. Twenty minutes later I am still waiting for it. I can’t believe it is not out yet. I go into the kitchen and ask where is my chicken caesar for table 109. The cook barks back it is already gone and I […]
I went to my place of work today only to find out that the other restaurant ( the one I like ) needed me to replace someone that was sick. Now this is a good thing. Had a great night and next week I am replacing someone who is going on holiday in the same […]

I am working 5 days a week and getting paid for 8 hours a day. How many waiters out there work 8 straight hours without a break between breakfast to lunch? You can take a break of 30 minutes but why bother if you are going to miss some tables. Where I work all I […]
So this hotshot 26 year old waiter who thinks he is better than everyone else says to me he is going for a quick smoke and can I watch his 3 tables. He leaves me his card. The host immediately sits 3 people in his section like an idiot because he didn’t tell her he […]
This morning when I got up I glanced at my corkscrew that I haven’t even put in my pocket since I left my last job. It sounds like I am in mourning for not being around some fine wines but my $15 average guest cheque per person is much more profitable than someone who sits […]
