The Last Day

Today was my last shift at the restaurant for this summer. Had a decent section, but today was not too great for business. I made about $150 in sales. I said my goodbyes to my co workers throughout the day and realized how much I would miss some of them.

My last table was kind of unexciting for my last table. Business people too consumed in whatever diagram or chart they had across the table. Decent tip, but not great. After cutting bread and rolling my last rollups of silver ware, I cashed out with a whopping $27 in tips.

Celebrated at the Cheesecake Factory for lunch! Awesome.

The Last Supper

Tonight was my last dinner shift at the restaurant. I felt weird upon my arrival; people seemed to be in a bad mood. My section was in the front, pretty decent, and I had about seven or eight tables throughout the night. Nothing too crazy honestly, just very chill. I did have (and still have) a headache the whole night even though I had taken six ibuprofen earlier. Oh well. I think I made $51 in tips. I forget because I mixed in some of my tip money with my change money. Ah.

After work, some last chance work bonding with people at Chili's as usual. Go there way too often. And as usual, I was the only one not drinking, so I sipped on my strawberry lemonade like a boss. I am going to miss my co workers!

Broken Soles

Today was my last Monday of work at the restaurant. I figured out the sole in my right shoe has worn out, which meant because of the rain, I had a wet right foot.

A rainy day, I expected it to be busy, but unfortunately it was extremely slow. I didn't get sat for a really long time, and when I finally was, I had two tops and salads. Nothing too expensive today. Work was so lame.

I made $51 in tips.

Crab Cakes

Tonight was my first night back to work since Thursday lunch. Had a few tables, made ok sales. Nothing too stand out about tonight, except that I got kept on until close. And by close, I mean I almost stayed longer than the actual closers because a couple stayed until past closing time, taking their sweet time finishing dinner and dessert. The legitimate only table left in the restaurant.

Before I left, one of the cooks gave me a to go box again, with crab cakes! This time I was unsure as to why, he just said, "Whenever we work together, I don't let you go home hungry."

Diedddd. I actually was quite famished and those crab cakes hit the spot. Again.

Working in the restaurant business is a curse and a blessing. Ha.

Made $51 in tips tonight. Need to pick up to make more money on my last week!!

Working for the Weekend

Today I was just ready to get out of work as soon as I got there. I set up the patio and got ready. Had a few tables and we got busy pretty quickly. Today I felt like work people were a little crabby or that I was just messing up a lot. Not sure.

Clubbing in Providence Friday night and Maroon 5 Saturday night, and back to the grind Sunday night.

Ah. I need to make so much money next week.

Tonight was whatever, made $52 in tips.

Typical Chili's after work.....
then got pulled over on the way home. FML.
Got a warning because of my perfect driver's record...
but I still got an actual citation that said "warning." Does this mean it will show up on my record?
Bed time.

Finally my last day of work before my day off tomorrow, after working for ten days straight.

I picked my own section again this morning, and it actually worked out that I was steadily busy throughout. However, I only had four tables, so I didn't make too much in tips, only $18. Lame. But work was good, guests were pleasant, and I got the hell out of there by 2 p.m.

Only two more weeks of work!
