Don't you hate when you realize that you lost an entire day to work?
That's how I felt today. I had to work from 8am to 4pm. It was so busy that I had to stay two hours over which put me getting out sometime past 6pm. It's as if I never saw the sunlight today. It went bye so fast too. I was getting sat with large parties over and over and it never stopped. I didn't even take a break (which is by law something we're supposed to do). I can't really write anymore about today because all I did was work.
I guess I could talk about those people who come in to eat and treat you as if you're as dumb as they are. You know the kind. The conversations kinda go like this...
Me: I'll be back with more coffee for you. Is there anything else I can get you while I'm in the back?
Them: Yeah! Coffee!
Or how about this one...
I place their water or tea in front of them and pass out the other drinks to the rest of the party.
Them: Where's my water?
That's when I politely point at the water in front of their face. Instead of a polite oops or blushing due to embarassment I get a look of disgust as if I've tricked them. What the heck!!!
But here's my favorite. Mostly because it allows me to use Star Wars teminology. I am taking plates off the table and I cannot reach the plates on the farthest end of the table. I'm reaching out my arm in the direction of the person who is staring at me like I'm stupid. After about 10 seconds of a stare down contest I say:
Me: Sir, I would use my Jedi force powers to levitate your plate to me but my manager said I'm not allowed to use the force at work.
To my amazement I've actually been asked why? My reply: "Because I kept using Jedi mind tricks to receive 50 dollar tips from customers.
They laugh but I get real serious and say, "So will you please pass me your plate?"
Oh the public...............
