Some days at the restaurant, things just don’t go right. It could be anything. There could be a rush of people sitting at the same time, I have to pick up the slack of a coworker or the internet will just not connect to the Ipad to make a reservation. On those days, it may seem like the universe is testing me in a way that I am TOTALLY prepared for, but why do things have to fall apart now?!? For me, working in this industry always provides me with countless stories of patron idiocy, catastrophic food mix ups and endless dirty dishes. The worst days are when I have to deal with customers who are just not having as good a time as my pretend-to-care smile wants them to have. Luckily, I have my generation’s reliance on the media to help me out of just these types of situation. This source of wisdom? TV. Specifically my favorite TV show, Bones.
