For all those who are keeping track, I admit I haven't posted in a while. Saying that nothing exciting is going on is not much of an excuse giving the caliber of my previous posts. The real man to blame is MIKE who whenever he's home monopolizes the computer allowing family members 5 minutes to check email while he hovers over your shoulder (if he even gives up the chair) and when he's not home using the computer lacks the satisfaction of having bested Mike.
But enough about Mike, let's talk about me. As select family members (Mom, Dad, Mike, Rachel and Ruti) have been privileged to witness I have joined Joe in the elite world of money-grubbing tip-mongering.
Compared to other jobs I've held waiting has the satisfaction of creating it's own excitement. Your job begins when the customer enters, peaks when all the entrees are delivered and is wrapped up when they leave the tip on the table. All you have to give is 40 minutes and you're good to go. Of course there are many overlapping 40 minutes and you can be running around for 3 hours but it's still much more exciting than babysitting and office work.
When I first started the job I was the most polite, smiling, attentive waitress Danali's has ever seen. Besides for the disgusted looks of my coworkers I just can't handle giving 100% any more- so I aim for 90%.
I'm trying to make this sound more exciting and interesting but the truth is after my 6 hour shift (of which I was only working hard 3.5 hours) I'm just too exhausted.
