Last night I went in the beer room to get a beer for Jamie and someone (Tom) had left the Snake River Lager tap running. The five gallon overflow bucket was full and had a nice foamy head, like a cupcake, and beer covered the floor. Basically an entire keg of beer went down the drain last night. I’m glad I’m not figuring cost and loss for the restaurant.
Everything was funny last night and I don’t know why. I can’t pinpoint a specific incident either. I guess I worked with funny people last night rather than people with sticks up their asses. Nobody was freaked out, running around yelling, or pissed off. It was a very unusual night.
One thing is under my skin though. All the years I’ve worked there, the servers have tipped the busers 2% of their sales. ALWAYS. The owner decided that my son made too much money the first night he worked…more than the dishwashers on an 8 hour shift…so he cut the percentage to 1.5. On one hand this means I keep .5% more of my money, but on the other hand it sounds like Quinn is being accused of working the system. He was paid no differently than any of the other busers I’ve worked with for the last 3 summers or the other little buser girl working now. So I’ve either been screwed for the last 3 summers or my son’s getting screwed now. I’m a little irritated.
