Well in about 12 hours I will no longer be a waitress. Today is my very last shift at the restaurant that I work at. The very last waitressing shift ever in any restaurant, I hope anyway. You know I post an awful lot about the stress and the crazy people I have encountered in my 19 years of serving, but when I look back on it; those were some of the best times I've had. The people that I've gotten to meet and work with have all touched me in some way. We, the restaurant people, are a special kind. Not everyone can do this job, it takes a lot of skill, multitasking abilities and of course patience. I will miss it. I will miss the money.
Leaving this behind is a step into my new future but it's scary. I've never had to work for a paycheck. I just this week deposited 3 of my checks. I don't get to the bank very often, but anyways 3 checks still didn't amount to $100! Can you believe that? I will cope. I'll just learn how to budget. It will be different, but I'll manage.
Though none of the girls I work with know anything about this blog of mine I'd like to say goodbye to all of you. I hated you, I loved you, I worked with you, partied with you, went to your damn baby showers and birthday parties. I lived a lifetime with you and each and everyone of you shaped me into the person that I am. So for one last time I say to you: 86 the special!
