I was informed today that my fingers must be broken, as I had not updated on my new job! So just for Megan I am doing just that! 🙂
I started my on the floor training Monday night, and worked then, Tuesday night, and tonight. I am LOVING it! I love greeting the customers, talking to them, getting them seated, and in general setting the tone for their evening. I admit I also particularly like the fact that that’s as far as I go. The meal is not cooked right? Not because of me! The service was bad? Not because of me! They may hate their waitress by the end of the meal, but they still like the girl who was so chipper and helpful when they got there. What more can ya ask for?
Just to give you a good laugh, I have already managed to stick my foot in my mouth pretty deep. The hostess who was training me last night is giving me the rundown on some of the staff, and mentions server “S” is gay, and that her friend is the guy he is dating. There are two “S”s there, and I assumed we were on the same page as to which one she was referring to. So tonight my in-laws come in along with their daughter, my husband’s niece. I say hi to them, chit-chat a little, and they go off to eat. Server “S” comes up to me and goes “Oh, you know her?” I said yeah, did she work here when you did? He says no, thats his ex-girlfriend.
What’s the first thing out of my mouth? “Oh, I thought you were gay???”
Open mouth, insert foot.
Luckily he’s got a sense of humor and wasn’t upset and the misunderstanding was VERY quickly cleared up. I hope it was a mis-understanding at least, for his girlfriends sake!
