When I got my job at the restuarant last fall I was beyond excited. More money coming in and when school was out for the summer, I'd still have something coming in. I only recieve my vac. pay in Aug, otherwise I will not get a check from the school district until Oct. And even then it is just for a few days worth of work. I don't pull a decent check until Nov. Work has been beyond horrible lately. I brought home only $35 on Sun and $20 last night. People are sharing meals now and drinking water. Every single one of us wait staff got screwed on a table by people not even tipping 15%.
Kim: check for $85- they left a $4.00 tip Danni: Check for $110- they left a $10.00 tip Myself: Check for $45- they left a $3.00 tip
Trust me, it wasn't like these people had crappy service either. We were fucking slow last night. It wasn't as if we were slammed and understaffed, then I could see some one getting pissed off and leaving a crappy tip. Drinks were promptly refilled, plates cleared and no one wanted for anything. I hope tonight is better. I'm begining to regret taking Pudd'ns birthday off this Friday.
