There Is A Vague Chance We'll Order Dessert
So when I went over there and asked them whether they were going to order dessert at all I get this response. I wasn't impressed as I was now cut and the closer still had a few tables which was giving him something to do.
But last week the role's were reversed and I was the closer and he had this table that was going to take forever. I took it over for him and last night he did the same for me.
I had to get up early this morning so I wasn't keen on staying till the lights came on for this couple. It was worth every penny lost in whatever tip they might have left so I could get home earlier.
Sticking around is a nuisance. It is the law of diminishing returns if people linger like that especially with that attitude. I was just glad I wasn't closing.
