          • So on my first weekend was the busiest in restaurant history, but not only did I not have a 'teacher' host. I had to learn myself. . . so luckily the boss took over. I think we sat like 400 people during lunch (for a large chain restaurant that is like a really busy Saturday night!)

            • SO that was lovely. . . but I gained 'rep' if that makes sense, because I didn't totally lose my mind.

                • So you got the 'front' (servers and hostess, side note our place is so small host and bus is the same thing, and bartenders.)

                  And back, which is the kitchen. For the kitchen, they don't leave. Ever.

                  But in the front, only Senpai notice me and my manager are left.

                  • Yes, I have a Senpai at work.

                    It's really bad and hopeless. No one really knows about him as my Senpai because 1 - people are pretty sure he is gay. 2 - he's older than me.

                    • How old, well a few years. But I am a minor and he drinks sooo like meh

                      I will never have romantic feelings for him, because of the age difference and he smokes cigs but I admire him because he reminds me that there are guys who are 100% my type out there.

                      • I've made friends, which I am happy about.

                        My best friend, her name is Jennifer. She's older than me

                        Side note, I am hecka young there. They finally got someone around my age - then they quit - so I am still a child.

                        • OKAY but I will go to an actual story.

                          Sense I've worked there the longest i've gained the title of 'manager' (unofficial) so literally I deal with like when to cut servers (send them home), and when to call servers in.

                          • SO why is this important??? (and totally cool)

                            So regulars (locals who come in way to much) really really hate me now. I've gone from a little timid teenager to a like commander and no - tolerance to anyone.

                            Comment


                            • I'll be honest, most people hate the regulars. For some reason, they think they get like special privileges because they are regulars. Hell nah. Some will be like, we are regulars can we sit now? And I'm like, No because there is a 20 minute wait for EVERY TABLE. Then they will go like But I see a table open. You don't THINK I know that??? So lately i've been replying to people who have attitude and ask that, I go I know.

                              • One yesterday wanted to combine two tables, and I said no, because you are going to be blocking the door to the wine cabinet.

                                So this lady, asks another server - who says to ask me if she can.

                                I died, and I explained it to her once again, I cannot have you blocking this door, we have 2 other tables that work.

                                Lady was like, we won't want those tables.
