Life Of A Waitress
She works so hard making less than minimum wage. She runs food, goes back to get you whatever you need. Although you don’t know it she has come from her first job and did not get to stop to eat. However she puts a smile on her face even when she is so stressed because she walked into a shit show of a day and you decided to come into it. No that is not your fault and she knows this. She as you tell her you’d like water with exactly three lemons cut her some slack if she only brings you two.
She was just busy helping change a keg because there is an event coming up, and really does apologize for the two minutes you had to wait for her to bring your menus and water. Also the kitchen is backed up because said event is getting ready to take place.
And she knows you are going to have to wait, so that is why she is asking if you would like an appetizer like chips and dip to tied you over because your well done steak is not going to be done for another twenty minutes. However part of that is because your steak also has to cook to be well done.
No, she was not being lazy when you walked in. She was actually trying to start her assignment for school because if she is being honest she does not want to be a waitress for the rest of her life. Nor does she want to work two jobs just to make ends meet. So when you see her and tell her that she should strive for better just know that she is even when you think she is not doing anything while she sits at the bar.
Also she is not interested in you as you flirt with her from the other side of the bar while she pours you another jack and coke.
She pretends to flirt with you because you are with your boys and she does not want to embarrass you by telling you to back off because she is so happily taken. However, your ego is very big when you slip her your number.
You see she is working way harder than you think or even see. It is her job to make changing kegs and moving tables look easy. And it is her job to bring you your food and drinks with a smile. Because it is her job to pick up that tray holding five entrees and make it look effortless. And it is her job to joke and laugh for the millionth time at some dude who is making a pass at her even though she is not interested. Yes, all of this seems pretty unfair doesn’t it? What is more unfair is …
When you see her sitting at the bar with her head down and you tell her manager that she was not personable. But that was because she did not hear you walk in to the restaurant. And it’s not fair when you don’t tip her because she forgot that third lemon, even though you got a dish of like four extras because she felt terrible that she messed that up for you. And it is not fair that you keep telling your friends that you bagged her and she has to live with that rumor in her town when you know that never happened. It’s not fair that you keep calling her over to walk back and forth for something small.
When she has ten other tables and she is trying to show you that you are her priory in a room full of people.
NOTE: Durning Covid-19 a waitress still works for their wage which is only like 2 or 3 dollars. Yes, I know you are not going into the restaurant.
