I Had a Weird Dream Last Night
One time I was sat a deuce and they said they wanted to wait before ordering. Then I was sat a 2 at a table of 10 who were waiting on the others to arrive.
While I am walking around lost I was sat another table. Then in the food area the deuce that wanted to wait one of them was chasing me down cause she wanted a candle at their table as it was getting dark. I brought the candle over and at that time was figuring they were ready to order. Then at that moment someone delivers their entree to them. Oh you have ordered I inquired. Yes we have they replied.
Then that 2 at the 10 top still waiting for the others to arrive see me and run over to tell me that it may be a couple more hours before everyone gets there.
At this moment I realize I am about the only waiter left and I haven't even served a table. I head to the office where the manager is and she tells me that this is not going to work and sends me home. In fact I get a scolding for being so ill prepared. It was like I couldn't function or think properly anymore. I was in a daze all night.
I had a fear that I was losing it and getting dementia.
Then I woke up...
I think this dream is linked to my Mother's failing memory.....
