So, it's no secret that work has been less than stellar. We are so slow - it's brutal. But, I went in Friday night with a great attitude and my hopes were high. I figured Friday night would be by night. I was sorely mistaken.
First, I get this table - it was two people and they had a 15 percent off coupon so that was cool. I greeted them right away and offered them cocktails or sodas and they declined. They just wanted water. I told them the specials and I gave them a few minutes to decide. I come back out and they were GONE! The hostess said that they thought the prices were too high. Okay, no big deal. Definitely not my fault.
Next, another couple comes in. I greet them, tell them the specials and give them a minute. I come back to the table to fill their water glasses, but the ladies menu was in the way of her water glass. So, instead of asking her to move the menu, or getting in her way, I just decided to fill the gentlemen's glass first. She starts screaming at the top of her lungs. She's like "what kind of restaurant is this? Haven't you ever heard of ladies first?" I was stunned. She was literally screaming. I thought she was joking. I was waiting for candid camera to come out of the woodwork. She literally yelled at me for a good long minute. I apologized. I walked away and they left. Jesus! Great night I had. I ended up walking out for the third time in a week with ZERO dollars in my pocket.
I don't know why I'm still working at this place. I guess I just keep hoping that business will pick up. I worked Saturday night and I made a whopping thirty dollars. Better than nothing, but not enough to survive on.
So, today I went shopping with my mom, she bought me two really pretty shirts. That was fun! We also went out to eat Italian food and then we saw "The Hangover". Holy shit! I laughed my ass off. What a great movie. It was just what I needed to lift my spirits. I loved it!!! I would recommend it to anyone. My mom and dad loved it too.
Go see it!
