Okay, 4 days down and 3 more to go until I get a day off. ONE day off - not two - just one. I'm really not complaining though. What would I be doing if I was off work? Definitely gambling and shopping. Finding new and exciting ways to spend money. Because let's face it - I love to spend money.
I decided to order a knock off belt online for the low low price of $40.00. I'm waiting for it to arrive in the mail. Here's a picture...
Nevermind - no picture at this time since blogger isn't cooperating.
I'm a tad bit worried that they were all one size fits all. I mean, how does one size fit EVERYONE????? It might be one size for plus sized women and then I'm kinda screwed. That's why I hate buying online, but it was a good deal and if it looks exactly like the picture, then I'm happy because those belts are REALLY expensive and I'm saving like $400.00.
Last night I had a table of french guys - there was four of them and they ran up a nice little $300.00 bill. They were generous enough to leave me $20.00. The night before that I had a table of people from England. I knew they were big trouble. They had a check that was $300.00 and they left me $20.00. I think that every single European person must think that $20.00 is an acceptable tip no matter what the price of the check is. The other servers tell me I was lucky to get anything at all. I guess they were right.
I think I have another 2 or 3 weeks until I'm off probation and I can't wait. As it is now, when you are in your first 90 days on the job, they can let you go for any reason under the sun or just for no reason. If they don't like your hair, your makeup, your smile - doesn't matter - they can fire you. So, I feel like I've been walking on egg shells since I got there. Once I make it though probation though, I'm golden. I get full benefits and I have a union to back me up. It's SO hard to get fired once you make it through probation. They have a point system and you are allowed to get like 10 points before they let you go and THEN, the points re-set every 6 months. It's kind of crazy. I know it frustrates the managers because I've noticed that a lot of the bussers and some of the servers have really shitty attitudes and there's nothing the managers can do about it.
Damn - this is pretty amazing....
Miracle Kitten Survives 300 Mile Trip Under Truck
(CBS4 News) IDAHO Quite a cat commotion in Idaho when an eight week old kitten is miles away from home after it had the ride of its life.
The beautiful black and white kitten, stowed away on board a truck traveling from Ashton, Idaho to Boise. But this kitty wasn’t inside the truck; she was underneath it, clutching and holding on tight to the undercarriage of the truck for the entire 333 mile journey.
Colleen Lordemann says she first spotted the kitty in Ashton, meowing loudly outside of a hotel when her dog was barking at it.
But 300 miles later, Lordemann heard the fortunate feline meowing again because when she got home, she discovered it was under the vehicle, holding on with all four paws, the entire trip.
Lordemann is calling the courageous cat, “Miracle Kitten” and plans to keep the kitten until its owner can be found.
