Due to real life and baby sitter blues.. I got an unexpected vacation that I didn't want and most definitely didn't need. Since I have no current events to write about concerning work here is an older post from my old blog brought up for you to hopefully enjoy.
Since the title of this blog is Losers and Winners, I will start with the losers, since I like winners and want to end my posts on a positive note.
Today's featured losers are the 60 dollar check and the 5 dollar tippers. They sit down at your table already mad, because they had to wait. Not understanding that if you get seated to quickly, not only will you get bad service, because your waitress is slammed, but you could also crash the kitchen and then everyone will have to wait for a really long time to get their food. So just because you have to wait for 10 minutes before you get seated, doesn't mean that the hostess doesn't want to give you a table. Or that we don't want your business. It means we try to run at a steady even pace. That way, when you finally get to sit at the table, you won't have to wait for anything. So don't take it out on your server. This particular table was pissed off from the get go. I tried to make them smile, I was nothing but friendly, polite and courteous. But they were mad and nothing short of buying their meal would have made them happy. But since everything was cooked properly, and they never had to ask for a refill and nothing but their bad attitude kept them from smiling. They took it out on me. They were rude, inconsiderate and to top it off cheap. I hope you come across this site and read 15 percent minimum is the proper tip you jerk. Also, I am there to take care of your needs, doesn't mean I am there to be treated rudely. I say this, because no matter how much a table ticks me off, I am never rude to them. It is not my nature to treat guests at my place of business as crappy as they treat me. Why not? you ask. Well because my grandmother raised me and she taught me manners. Basically the one thing a lot of people lack these days. If you don't know what manners are, I suggest you take your sour ass to the library(if you know what that is) and find a book that will teach you what they are. They are located in the self help section. IF you still can't find find the book to teach you these basic fundamental skills, ask the librarian. She will know where the book you need is located. If you don't know what a librarian is..it is the woman sitting behind the BIG desk with a computer in front of him or her. Okay done talking of ignorant idiots.
Now for the winners of today. Today's featured winners where a young married couple, who teased me that they were just on a date. Too cute. I found out she liked to cook, so I gave her my email and we are going to exchange recipes through email. I just have to say I love friendly people. The true kind that come out to dinner and when you try to talk to them or take their order and they do not act as if you are an inconvenience because you need to speak to them. So I must give this particular table a 5 star rating. As well as many thank you's for being so nice.
Now for today's positive reinforcement statement...
"Friendliness... It's not just an act..it can be genuine too."
