What a Night

I started at 5:30 and had tables 1 through 4. They joined 1 and 2 together then 3 and 4. So I had one party of 8 and another of 7.

I waited till 7 for the 8 to arrive then another 30 minutes before the 7 top which actually turned into a five. Just over two hours later when one table left me 30 and the other 20 I asked another waiter how much he had made so far. He said nothing yet. This was at 9:15.

He was still doing his only sitting up to that point that had not yet paid.

By the end of the night I had picked up two deuces. I made a whopping $56 and my buddy with his only two tables made $51.

Geez am I glad this Christmas is around the corner. One more night on Christmas Eve and that is it. Thank heavens!!
