People. I think I need to take a weekend off of work. Because it’s kicking my butt! I actually don’t even remember how work was on Friday because Saturday and Sunday totally wiped my mind. But I think I was busy enough on Friday and made good tips. Saturday made me mad. We were decently slow but right about the time I should have been cut (around 8) we found out we had to portion an entire box of breakfast potatoes. Awesome. So it’s 2 others servers and me and the head server basically wanted to wait till all 3 of us had time to do it. Stupid. We ended up not getting done till after 9 (which is when I was scheduled to). I had all my side work done but then got stuck rolling a ridiculous amount of silverware. I didn’t end up getting to leave till 10.
On Sunday I was in at 9. At first it seemed slow but suddenly the next thing I knew my entire section was full and every time one table paid someone else was seated there again. It was insane. I kept having to check the computer to see what people ordered because I honestly couldn’t keep track. And I can only read my handwriting long enough to type the orders in. After that it’s gibberish. In fact, next time I work I’m going to scan one of my tickets so you all can see for yourselves. Anyway, despite it being insane I made double what I made on Saturday night AND my boss, who is always really stingy with compliments, came up and told me I did a good job. It was awesome.
Aside from work I pretty much did not a whole lot else. I had some homework to get done last night. Why do I always wait till the last minute to do it? Honestly, when I started back at school I rarely waited till Sunday to get assignments in. These days, though, I don’t think I’ve had a single Sunday where I haven’t had some school wok to do. So sad.
This week I work Wednesday through Sunday and I open on Wednesday which has me totally freaked out. No one has even showed me what to do so I guess I’m just going to wing it? Hopefully I don’t screw up too horribly or blow anything up.
Oh P.S. My Perkins has KEY LIME MUFFINS. They are AMAZING. Seriously I had one Saturday night and it was the highlight of my night. Mm. I may have to get another one on Wednesday when I work!
P.S.S. I said I wasn’t going to watch the Oscars but sadly Dustin and I got sucked in. However, I’m not one to go on about the fashion or who won and who didn’t. It was enjoyable and I adored Anne Hathaway and HATED James Franco. What else can I say?
How was your weekend?
