I look like a slob? and my handwriting sucks? I honestly just read this on a comment card. (filled out by a couple assholes of course). I can’t explain the slob comment, but as far as the handwriting is concerned, I write my name differently on every single card to try and display some personality and spice up life a little bit. I guess those days are over. Just straight up “Brian” from now on. The same way, every single time.
If 212 degrees is the boiling point, I’m at about 300. I’ve had it with being treated like shit by non-tipping patrons who seem fine with treating me this way and letting me skimp through life at 2.65 an hour. I’m trying to work out new strategies in my head to try and either wake these people up or at least display some dissatisfaction in this treatment. I’m so ready to move on with life. I’m so ready to just skip ahead about 6 months and be already moved and already starting my new exciting job that puts me in position to win.
So I haven’t “typed” to you in too long.. People probably think that something is wrong or I fell into a dark hole or something. Well, sorry to upset you by that.. I have not fallen into any dark hole nor got my hands all chopped off in some freak accident or some shit. I’ve just been lazy. Actually theres a word for it.. Madden. Yeah, the new Madden came out early last week and I pretty much played it nonstop until this very second. Well, that and I did probably 25+ fantasy football drafts last week.. Yeah, issues.. There’s a lot of things going on that I haven’t discussed. That’s okay I’ll save those for another time..
What brought me here tonight was just a little rant that I wanted to just get off my chest for the time being and pump out there into cyberspace for the internet junkies to chew on and the horseless spews to spew on… or whatever it is that they do with their internet chew.
Okay. I’m just sick of people being assholes. I was going to limit this to just the fat dirty slobs that eat at the pondo and how they are too freakin cheap to leave a tip after I bust my ass for them, but.. I’ve decided to expand. WEll. Maybe not expand, cause this is the realm I deal with every day. And I’m not even pissed off actually. What I hate is when people mark their comment cards that everything was excellent except the attentiveness of the server who ends up getting just a “good”. Did they not see me busting my ass for them? Some nights I really get run around. Usually it pays off and theres more than 2 bucks on the table when they leave. Other times, they are just insensitive. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m real good at my job. I usually get tipped quite well I’d think (depends on the person, of which this topic came to mind).. but I always take care of requests right away, I’m quick as hell with refills, I prebus not stop to “get dishes out of the way” or “clear some room” or whatever I say at the time. Like everyone else I am sure, occasionally there are lapses where a Mountain Dew wasn’t refilled for 3 minutes or I didn’t know the lady wanted lemon for her ice tea or whatever.. Sometimes you’re wrapping up another persons meal or meals for that matter and during this time another table sits down, etc.. I’ve gotten much quicker with this but it has burned me before. Okay, back stepping.. Some people piss me off that’s all.. I usually always get Excellents on my comment card when they are filled out.. But I was going to say something about little things that piss me off, but wanted to first say.. that I do really really like my job (can’t say love because im a professional bitch).. but I like what I do. I enjoy the people I work with. I like to think that I brighten their day because people are always really happy to see me and see that they get to work with me. I’ve gotten to know many of them pretty well and hope to get to know them even better the longer I manage to not go crazy doing this… There’s nobody I don’t like or can’t stand to work with or am just uncomfortable around… but every now and then something just pisses me off.. Like for instance.. A large part of my job revolves around retrieving dirty dishes and bringing them to the dishwashing place where I scrape them off if need be and then you know, place them in a stack. So because of that and at times when I am getting a meal ready for delivery I am bound to get crap all over my hands.. or maybe not all over, but on them.. I have to wash and use paper towel to get them dry and ready for the next action.. All of us have to do this often. I should do it even more than I do.. but.. So anyway.. the paper towels run out and it throws me off. I get pissed about it. I tell the dishwashers (who are all freakin AWESOME by the way — I should devote an entire post to Marvin some day and will — ) but it’s like their responsibility to keep that shit full. I say, we need more paper towel. 20 minutes later, and however many million wash offs.. I go to get the PT.. Nothing.. have to dip around a few people to get to the other one (there are like a million PT dispensers.. but the main one is super importante).. like tonight — finally I say to Brent (a manager– and also only the managers have the key to open the dispenser, which is stupid).. but I say, we need more Paper Towels.. So, (and i see this becoming even worse of an issue for my compulsive ass now that I am just exploding with it).. but so finally.. It’s opened.. Brent must have just opened and left it.. 20 minutes later, still no new roll.. I think, okay.. forget it. I go back and put it in. It just pisses me off. I know that they were just as busy as we were. But come on, that’s pretty important and it doesn’t take that long to do.
Oh well.. So what did I basically just say?
1) Ive been playing Madden and drafting thousands of fantasy football teams and thats why i havent posted much
2) Some people are assholes
3) I have fun at my job. People like me and I score big.
4) I’ve got to have my paper towel fix.
