TODAY IS WAITERS DAY
Anybody who’s worked as a waiter for even a couple of days knows just how tough it can be. Basically, your job is never, ever done. Have you brought that family their food? Great, now you can bring that booth full of noisy jocks their bill. Done that? Looks like that elderly couple would like a coffee refill, so don’t keep them waiting.
Done that? Good, because that lady over there that ordered a salad with the dressing separately got her salad doused in dressing and is demanding another one. And while you’re in the kitchen, why don’t you bring the aforementioned family their desserts, because their children are crying that they want ice cream, not a roast beef?
Waiters Day is a long-overdue day during which we should all take a moment to show our appreciation for those who work long hours on their feet, often for minimum wage.
