Okay, let me try this again...
I went into work Friday night to pick up a shift. Actually, I went in at ten a.m. and put my name on the list. I came back around 4 p.m. and there was 6 of us trying to pick up a shift, but my name was first on the list, so I won! In fact, I think all six of us picked up. Partly because they opened the patio and they didn't staff it. So, it was good!
Anyway, I was really upset when I saw the new schedule, they only gave me one day next week and one on call shift. The reason is because the sales report came out and I was in the bottom 25 percent. If you are in the bottom 25 percent, you get crappy shifts and you aren't allowed to trade with anyone or pick up. However, I've been picking up all weekend and nobody said anything so I'm happy.
I was soooooo upset when I saw the sales report. I think I was in the bottom because I work all lunch shifts. Do you know how hard it is to sell a steak or fajitas at lunch? Those are dinner dishes. The people that work dinners have it so much easier. When I worked Friday night I sold alcohol to every single table. When I work at lunch, people order ice tea and water. I understand, it is lunch after all. But, the managers need to take that into consideration.
They let a bunch of people go on Friday and I was so scared that I was going to be one of them, especially when I saw the sales report. Somehow, they decided to keep me. THANK GOD! I seriously think I might be suicidal if I lose one more job. I'm working my ass off at the Hard Rock. I love the company and the job.
The only complaint I have is the Europeans. Sorry if I offend anyone, but do you guys really think that a $7 dollar tip on an $80 check is good? It's so funny, because they tell me how great the service is, and they look so proud when they tell me to keep the change, and then I open the book and it's less than a 10 percent tip. BULLSHIT! It's so annoying.
I have to tip out the bussers, food runners, and the bar on my SALES. Not on my tips, on my sales. So, I actually have to dig into my pocket to pay these people if my tables don't tip me.
UGH! Anyway, I had lunch with two friends that I used to work with at the Department of Defense 15 years ago on Friday. It was awesome. They looked great and they said I look the SAME. I loved to hear that.
Now, I'm publishing before I lose everything. Go Ravens! They rocked it today!
