It was very uneventful. I worked the lunch shift, which was pretty slow and didn’t pick up until about 1. I had some issues with remembering to get bread and salad. Also, there’s a timing issue. The Harribalsac was all about turn & burn and this place is a much slower pace. I kept trying to get orders while my trainer roped me in. “Not yet,” was the most common phrase I heard today. Otherwise, things were fine.
I’m scheduled for a week of training, but I pretty much elbowed my trainer out of the way and started taking tables. She got the tips, of course, but I didn’t plan on standing behind her like a dummy while she taught me how to wait tables. I hope I get off the training schedule by Wednesday.
There was one customer who I thought was strange and after she left the owner said, “That woman was weird as fuck.” HAHAHA! I think I’m going to fit right in.
