I told Chris that if they ever need me to put me on as a busser I’m interested. Didn’t want to but this is goddamn ridiculous already.
And they’re going to train me on the computer on Tuesday to do take-out orders. Which they should have realized hostesses should do that anyway because the bar is usually busy and so are the servers. If it takes you over a month to start running things the way it’s done in every other restaurant in existence, you might have a problem.
Maybe once I can put in orders I can do some day shifts as a server. Doubt it but hey it’s a thought, I can at least cover for people or something.
The computer yelled at me for clocking in 9 minutes early. Another server clocked in 2 minutes before she was due to come in and it yelled at her too.
And then I was doing stuff tonight like, okay when I loiter I actually do stuff okay. I reset tables, take off linens, break down the patio, windex the windows, clean the bathrooms, roll silverware, walk people to their car, help the band get their stuff out also, tell everyone to have a good night and be peppy and shit, and just make sure everyone is getting their shit done.
So I was there until like 11. Yes, I could have left earlier and not helped to roll silverware but if I help everyone else gets out quicker.
I was told I need to start clocking out at 10.
That would mean I have a 4.5 hour shift. They’re not taking into consideration that I get cut after like 2 hours on Tuesdays because it’s slow as shit.
PLUS last night I was trying to clock out at 10 to catch a fucking movie and I was still out of there quarter after. They need me. They don’t want to pay me, but they need me. A++ good money managing skills because they decide “Oh, we’re not making money? Let’s keep hiring live entertainment, wasting money on hiring outside service to do our advertising, buy tablecloths and other shit, and just fuck everyone who actually runs this restaurant over with as little hours as we can possibly get away with.” I’m talking about the servers too. And they’re being blatant about it, we KNOW they’re trying to cut labor costs but honey that is not where you are wasting your fucking money.
This place is going to be closed within 2 years at most. Fucking whatever. Actually kind of unfortunate because the food is amazing 7/10 times I’ve tried it.
Bitch I’m still staying until 10:30 you can shove your foot up your ass.
this guy was waiting by the front for his wife so they could leave and I was just like “Did you like everything, oh what’d you eat?” etc. etc. small talk
and then he was just like
“Emily, you are just gorgeous.”
and he’s just an older gentleman and I actually must have missed them because someone else had sat them and idk it’s just really nice
I get complimented at work a lot it is A+ great for the self esteem
I mean I get cute and adorable a lot but this is the first gorgeous and he was like “damn wish you had been my server”
flattered even if you are old~
this really wrinkly old lady comes in, like shaky and wrinkly skin hanging loose from her bones and purplish and bruised like just OLD
and she’s asking us stuff at the hostess stand and we’re chatting and I’m telling her about stuff and she asked for a to-go menu and is like “I’m just going to get my friend and then we’re going to come back for drinks at the bar” and I’m like wow ok you’re old have fun see ya in a bit!
Meredith sees her out the window
she went over to Too Jay’s and threw out our to-go menu
AIIGHT FUCK YOU TOO LADY
this just in: I do not get paid enough to clean the men’s bathroom
cleaning bathrooms still sucks even with gloves
and trying to mop up pee from the floor of the men’s bathroom
lol noooope ugh :(
I got to bus tables today tho that was uh…aight
at least I got some hours :|
yeah okay need 2nd job ASAP
I like the restaurant I work at but management is fucking stupid as fuck ^_^
- first place was a bust
- golf club guard gates were nice and hopefully they’ll put in a good word for me when they turn in my application to the chef guy
- went back to Anthony’s and properly introduced myself as “Emily, Jennine’s sister” and filled out another application and I think he put it on the top of the list :/ it’s slow though so they probably won’t need anyone but if they do he’ll get in touch. sucks because I had applied back in November and when I was leaving he said “I didn’t know who you were back then!” so if I had slipped in my sister’s name I probably would have gotten uh….hired….yeah..
- went to another golf place, no one was in but I got a number to call
- went to a country club and was allowed to the actual club house and the receptionist was so nice! I filled out the app and gave her my resume and she gave me numbers to call for the banquet managers and stuff and put a sticky note on my application saying I was very professional, well-mannered, flexible hours and such, and just putting in a good word basically because I couldn’t see anyone at the time :’) so sweet, I hope that’s a good sign
- golf course across the street, not getting my hopes up but they have my info sooooo we’ll see
gotta find other restaurants and there are 2 hotels I’m going to apply at also so hopefully ONE of these things will pan out…yeah
also I am OFFICIALLY checked out of high school, hell yes maannn
guys I’m a salesperson
if people are walking by I go outside and try to get them in or at least tell them about stuff and I feel bad soliciting people like that BUT I did get 3 tables to come in (granted it was two tables of 2 and one table of 1 but still…)
we’re so slow and way overstaffed for the business we have :c
I really hope it picks up soon our food is legitimately amazing
I was talking to someone outside when our owner was leaving and he called me their “Secret Weapon” which felt pretty nice~ Yesterday (I think?) when I was running around doing junk he said some people had complimented me on how I was doing :x Feels nice man.
And Albie shared some of his shawarma pizza with me so I owe him one because it was delicious and I was hungry and didn’t want to eat a granola bar and purposefully didn’t take any moolah with me heh
all right no more, should have worn my booties :c
guys I do so much omg it’s not even me trying to get my hours in anymore I’m just afraid that if I don’t do things the servers will just go home and nothing will be ready for tomorrow :<
but I really wish someone else would clean the bathrooms at least….
we need more customers too…fuck closing early
