I was a dishwasher at a supermarket cafe. Different atmosphere than you were used to, obviously, but with that similarity of hustle and bustle. I always liked that.

I always look at servers and think how physically taxing that must be in most cases, and if I were able-bodied, I'm not sure I could hack that.

But again, the constant buzz in a restaurant is kind of neat. That, plus as much as customers have irritated me, I kind of enjoy the challenge of making things work for them.

see server.

Ah, memories. I miss... working with crazy bastards like George and Alton. And learning Spanish from Pedro and Gerardo.

Did you know that Darius works at Dell with me? I still dress like it's 1996, but he's all clean-cut and GQ-looking now. Hair gel, even.

P.S. Thanks for letting me in on the secret.


I miss when people are really polite to you. Just when someone takes a moment to genuinely acknowledge the service you gave them. Although it didn't happen nearly enough

I miss the camaraderie that only exists between servers...and all the drama.

I also miss being able to flirt with everybody from customers to kitchen staff without fear of dismissal or expectations. That's how you get tips and your food on time.

Everything you said - totally on point.

guess you didnt work in like a tgi Fridays...everyone i know who worked there hated it!

Right on, Brittney...although it's been 20 years since I was a waiter, I recall those days fondly, for many of the same reasons. So many people...some losers, but many of them interesting, funny, or otherwise worthwhile.

Good time.
