better you than me

So I love waitressing and don't care if its a big party (20+people) or just a bunch of small tables. But every so often I hope that I don't have to work a certain party. Last night we had one of those. It was a Army retirement dinner thing and was to be 48 people. They had preordered the food and were given an estimate of how much the dinner was going to be and they would all pay separate!!! When I saw the reservation in the book Tuesday all I could do is hope I wasn't having to work it.

Thankfully when I got in Thursday I was able to name my section and with that was not having to deal with them. God they were awefull. I mean I resent military parties as a general thing because they are rude and they run you to death while tipping you lousy. This one was no worse they fricken followed us around trying to get their drink order in. Dude if you just sit in your fucking chair we'll get the order and guess what we know there the fuck to take it too. They kept standing in the walk way right through out my section while I was trying to get to my tables. I ended up having to help out a little bit. They were so loud we had to close the door to the patio. Then while we were still serving food the first came out trying to get their checks WTF. Then one of the morons decided to yell across the restaurant HEY SERGEANT MAJOR again WTF. So as I try to deal with my tables I had to tell the same group of guys to move out of my way (while I was carrying hot plates!) they just didn't get it.

I am sorry but there is not enough money in the world for me to want to work those type of parties. Sorry no military parties in my future if I can help that. I made close to the same amount than the girls working that party but didn't have to work half as hard for it.

People in large parties who demand separate checks suck. It can really complicate things. s

Ah the military. What a bunch of bastards!!! Shouldn't allow them out in public, you know.

I don't know how you waitress in the first place...that has to be one of the hardest jobs with now thanks at all. I always try to be so nice and tip really good.

CP - I'd have to agree and we only have one credit card machine so it takes much longer if there are 48 checks of one party

Phos - LOL I know there are a few good ones

Beth - actually the job is fun in the right place. Like tonight I had great tables, easy going and fun.

do those huge parties mean good money for the restaurant...? is that why they get a booking if they're so mean...?

Dino aka Katy said...

Angel - yeah well they do bring in money but also there is no way of knowing how a party will be till they get here
