I Don't Mind Helping But.......

Don't ask me when I am carrying dirty plates back to the kitchen and my hands are full and you have one empty beer bottle in your hand and ask me to take it back for you. Especially when you work at the bar and there are empty beer boxes you can just take it to and deposit.

Another thing is when there are 5 servers all having a chit chat and the expo sees me and ask , Steve can you run this food? What? Was the food going to sit there until I came along to run it out or were you a bit too afraid to ask the gang of five if any of them wanted to run the food?

C'mon give me a break!!

Man, you always get the free loaders that will gladly watch you do the work. I give them plenty of shit, they either like it or bugger off.

I do find it harder these days to get good attentive wait staff to work the few hours of service that is needed.....Oh well I'll have a beer now and cheers to better days.

Ranting Chef...it is a popularity contest sometimes. I just come to work to work. Not socialize. But I guess I am older , married , and have other better things to do than talk the small talk.

That shit drives me crazy. Especially the expo situation, which happens all the time. And yet if I don't run the food, I risk being screeched at by a harpy-slash-manager, who will just include me in the lambasting given to the six other people standing around doing nothing.
