Alas my fifteen minutes of fame are up! (see Interview)
After having had my Saturday lunch shifts involuntarily ripped from me sometime in early summer, I have been so graciously put back on the schedule! It has been a while since I had worked a double Saturday and I forgot how fun (torturistic) they truly can be.
I start my shift at 11:00 am, which seems pretty silly because the first customers don't start trickeling in until sometime after noon. But being the hardworking, super-waitress that I am, I found plenty of things to keep me busy (out of Boss's line of vision).
I stock the kitchen chalk full of dressing, vinegar, to-go containers, hairnets(yea right), and other kitchenly items. Wow would you look at the time, its 11:11! I make my way out into the deserted dining room and check all 31 sugar bowls, parmesean cheese shakers, salt and peppers shakers and shiny silverware for fullness/shineyness. Good God time just flies when you're having fun, 11:17.
Oh shit here comes Boss! I dart from his sight into the noisy kitchen and proceed to restock (overstock) kitchenly items, 11:30.
I make several laps around dining room (still deserted) until I realize that I could waste time and stay out of vision line by peeing, 11:34.
Oh screw this! I sit down in back of deserted dining room, fuck, Boss sees all! I am ripped new asshole for sitting down on my job when I could be working, 11:59.
First customer enters, sits in other waitress's section. This is gonna be a long day!
