I Will Be Moving On Soon

I think I have had enough of Corporate Restaurants. It seemed like a good idea and worked wonderfully timewise but now have decided to hunt for a small fine dining restaurant for 4 - 5 evenings a week.

Last night I had a table that was just weird and this couple had trouble written all over their faces. When they asked for their meal to go and it was just being plated I asked if everything was alright and she just didn't look at me and said it was alright.

Yeah sure it was alright. You know if someone has something to say just say it to me. So I had to get a supervisor to speak with her and next thing you know she is getting her a gift card. I am not going in to much detail but with this crowd you have to watch everything. You have to know when they are lying.

The thing is after that incident a couple of months ago when my telepathic powers were faulty and I got written up I have to be extra careful cause one more complaint and I am suspended. It is just negative energy right now for me and is useless to stay much longer. I was hoping I could hang in longer but the summer brings even cheaper people where I work so what is the point. Looking ahead I may as well get settled elsewhere before Christmas.

So I will start making some phone calls and see what is going on out there. I have some places in mind. I will keep you all posted.

I wish you the best of luck - it does sound like a better move, to be honest.

I always liked the privately owned restaurant I worked for. The corporate stories always scared me :) -

Can't wait to see what you find.

...oh, and thanks again! :) Happy weekend.

At first I thought you were ending your blog! I'm glad that is not the case but I am sad you are unhappy in your present job situation too. Life is too short.

Well, you gave this a good run. And yes, it's time to move on before things get sticky. The very best to you and I hope you find the perfect fit:) Keep us posted!

Chris..no I will still do the blog. I think the problem is that I am maybe just a little people tired. Not blog wise just restaurant wise. Although tonight was a good night.
