Happy Halloween

Zombies and the walking dead,
Every moment filled with dread.
Vampires come to suck you dry,
Witches with their evil eye.
Creepy creatures 'round each bend.
Will this terror never end?
The shrieking beasts,
The angry mob.....

But enough about my crappy job.

Have a wonderfully Happy Halloween everyone!!!

Saturday's Shitheads

I just had to give a Shit Head Award. My own creation. You can borrow it if you wish for a shit head that you might know.

Before I tell you about the award winner, I just have to tell you. The shit heads were out in full force. There was almost a tie, then I decided that the second place contender deserved a special trophy. So he will get his on Thursday.

I will say that the guests were rather diverse this evening. I did have some rather delightful people. But the overall majority were just terrible. How can you go out, share a meal, bring your bill to thirty dollars and then tip two dollars? Beats me, but I would love to set up a questionnaire and mail it to people. Seriously.

Tonight's winner asked me why in the hell don't restaurants carry Busch? He got angry that we didn't carry that lower class beer on tap. What the hell? We are an upper class establishment. Not a Honky Tonk bar. He was a redneck through and through. I know about rednecks. My family is all redneck. So don't think I am picking on him just because he is one. Then he had the audacity to tell me that by answering his questions, it wouldn't affect my tip. What an ass. I don't just wait on people for money. I actually care about the service I give. I enjoy my job. His wife ordered two drinks. Alcoholic beverages. She didn't even call the drink by the proper name. The drink was called a Confusion and she kept ordering a Confession. I didn't say anything.

He proceeded to inform me, "I have a few questions for you, and don't think I can't afford to eat here, I can. I also know about steaks, so you can't fool me." WTF?? He was antagonistic from the get go. I NEVER pre-judge my tables, but this one should have been. I said, "Yes, sir. What can I answer for you?" He then asked me why a porterhouse had part New York Strip and part Filet and why the bone was included. Ummm.. Hello?? If you know about steaks a Porterhouse has a bone. It is a New York strip on one side and a full Filet on the other. The bone in the middle adds to the flavor, that is why it is such an expensive steak. Not just because of the size, but because of the quality of the meat. Anyways, I digress. I served them with smiles and friendliness. I treated them the same as I do all of my tables.

Their bill was $77.30. My tip left on the table was $6.00. But after the husband got up, the wife reached over and removed a dollar. Bringing the tip to $5.00. So much for answering the questions not affecting my tip.

So, if you think that is bad, wait until you see the winner on Thursday.

I Have Decided

Thank you all for you wonderful comments. I guess I am pretty good at bitching LOL.

I decided that on Every Thursday I will do a Thursday's Trophies.. that will be the day I award my personal trophies to the winners and losers of the week. Such as rudest guest, dumbest co-worker.. etc.

Keeping with the Sunday's Sinners.. I will have to say.. I told my boss I would no longer work Sunday's. I usually pull doubles every Sunday. I work my ass off for shitty people and shittier tips. It wasn't just because of that though. I decided that even though I need to work, being a single mother is more important. I decided that I should have at least one day every weekend off. And since I absolutely HATE Sunday's. I told him that is the day I would love to have off every week. But, I am sure I can come up with something for a Sunday's sinners post.

Until next time......

What Do You Prefer?

I have been thinking. Scary I know. I love this blog. I want to keep it original. Yet, I see so many good ideas out there in bloggerland. I don't want this blog to be just bitching about bad tippers. Though I am sure some of you find me funny sometimes. I also don't want to be repetitious. At least not in a dull redundant sort of way. So I ask you, my avid readers and friends. Do you have an original or fun idea for something I could do on a weekly basis. Something that I would do every week, for fun and entertainment. Trying not to pilfer from others ideas.

Displays of Affection

Sometimes I think I will run out of things to bitch about, then in walks another clueless set of people.

There is nothing more disgusting, then to bring something to a table and they have their tongues shoved so far down each others throats that you think they are gagging each on purpose. I have literally walked up to a table and seen a man with his hands so far up a woman's skirt you would think he was fishing and lost his damn pole.

I don't mind standard displays of affection, but if you want to get kinky, pick a place that doesn't have children running around in it. I am all for sex education for kids, but I don't think mauling each other in a restaurant is considered sex ed. Pretty sure it is considered tacky. Yep.. Tacky!

Rather like public soft core porn. I don't want to watch it, would rather be participating in my own event. Wonder if servers could give tables awards for how inappropriate guests could be in public. Such as mini Olympics. Gold, Silver and Bronze for how affectionate, how crude, how cheap and how rude. I might have to consider marketing that one.

Sorry Christine, wasn't abducted by Aliens. I usually keep up with my Real Life blog better then this one. If you ever wonder what happened to me, you can fine me here. Thanks for the concern. It is greatly appreciated.
