So, I'm driving to work the other day and I see a homeless and very gray, hairy man walking down the street at an intersection where I don't usually see very many bums. I'm watching him as he walks towards the car and he's stumbling into the cones along the way. I'm thinking to myself "this guy isn't hungry, he wants some more alcohol or drugs". As he gets closer to the car I finally have an opportunity to read his sign and it says "I'm not gonna lie - I need beer". I never laughed so hard. I couldn't roll my window down fast enough to give this guy some loot. I really respect a guy that can be honest about his intentions. That pretty much goes for all guys (not just the bums).
That very same night at work the funniest thing happened. First off, I thought I was cocktailing in the bar, but I got my days mixed up and I wasn't cocktailing - I was serving. I wore the cocktail server outfit though so, I wasn't exactly dressed to serve normal tables - but whatever. I guess I was giving off some great mojo that night because 3 different random guys asked me out. That's so odd! I rarely ever get asked out when I'm working. The first guy was such a loser. He's sitting in the bar by himself and he looked like a thugged out ghetto mexican from the projects. I'm leaning against the desk/computer because we were pretty slow and he's like "hey - what time do you get off" and I'm like " I dunno - I guess around 10 or 11 - and he's like "should I come by and pick you up?" I'm like "uhhhh - no". What the hell kind of pickup line was that? PLEEEEASE!!!! I walked right away! About an hour later I take care of this table of 5 guys and they were all very cool and pretty courteous. They all leave and there is one lone guy sitting behind. I'm thinking "why the hell don't you get off my table so the busser can re-set it so I can make some more money?". I look over at him and he kind of motions for me to come over - so I walk over thinking he needs some more water or something and he's all nervous and fumbling. He finally gets up enough nerve to ask me out to lunch for the next day. He was really sweet, so I let him off easy. I told him that I have a boyfriend but that I was really flattered that he asked me out. So, he leaves. A few minutes later this very ROWDY group of guys stroll into the bar to watch the game. They are hooting and hollering and trying to get my attention every two minutes. I told them more than a few times that the bar isn't my section, so I couldn't wait on them. One very drunk guy came over and started to ask me out, but luckily one of my bartenders kicked them out for being too loud, so they had to leave. It's really funny how sometimes when it rains it really pours!
Anyway, I have some great pictures to post from the Tao - One Year Anniversary Party the other night. I'll try to get them up tomorrow.
