Well, work started off great last week, but now that friends and family is over and we are just open to the public, things are SLOW! I had two tables Friday night and I made $15.00 after tipping out and Saturday night I had 1 table and I made $15.00 after tipping out. I'm probably spending more money than I make in gas. It's really pathetic. It's a new restaurant and I'm trying to be patient as the word gets out. I just hope it picks up. The good thing is that since I'm making such a tiny amount of money, I'm still able to collect partial unemployment. So, it's good because I'm not sitting on my ass. I actually have someplace to go everyday, but I don't have to freak out about money because I know that I'll at least get a little bit at the beginning of every week from unemployment.
It's just boring as hell standing around watching the front door wishing someone would walk in. I stayed until we closed on Friday night and then Saturday night (4th of July) they cut me around 8:30 p.m. I was cool with that cause I knew that nobody else was coming in on 4th of July. Typically, Independence Day is a slow day in any restaurant because people are shooting off fireworks and cooking out on the grill.
Oh well, I'm crossing my fingers that business will pick up.
I have a weird schedule this week. I'm off today (Sunday). I work Monday, I'm off Tuesday, I work Wednesday, I'm off Thursday and I work Friday and Saturday.
Well, I'm heading over to my parent's house today. See ya!
