Confessions of a Witty Waitress Part II

You all know.. I wasn’t done…

giphy (39)and I’ll probably never be done as long as I’m in the service industry. Here are some more love/hate aspects of the very unpredictable life of a waitress.

LOVE: MOLDING MY PEOPLE SKILLS

One meets every kind of person working in the service industry; one sees the good,

the bad,

giphy (26) and the ugly

LOVE: 50% OFF FOOD/FREE FOOD

Nothing like spending less/no money on food.

HATE: THE BIG BILLS

Pay your bill that’s $27.53 with a $100 bill and we’re gonna have a problem.. in my head.

LOVE: FOOD MISPRONUNCIATION

Herb, salmon, andouille sauce… keep it coming guys it’s a little giggle.. in my head… every time.

HATE: BEER LISTS/WINE LIST/ ALCOHOL LISTS

Alcohol makes a bill/check go from 0-100 really quick, BUT… I have had countless moments when a drink is on the menu and the bar is out of stock (ALWAYS ASK THE MANAGER/ BARTENDER) #makethatadouble

HATE: DECLINED CARDS

It’s just super awkward and I’m the queen of making awkward situations… more awkward.

HATE: COUPONS

(I honestly don’t mind coupons) If you’re using one.. tip out the original bill. #TimesAreHard

LOVE: MEETING BOMB/AWESOME/HAPPY PEOPLE

When I crack a witty joke and you laugh, you’re awesome. Even if you’re upset, I’ll still TRY (my hardest) to find a way to make you crack a smile. Politeness and just plain smiling go a really long way with me. I will make sure your experience at the restaurant is exceptional. We work together to make the goal (feeding you) not just possible, but a very pleasant event.

Best always,

P.S. I do not intend to anger or upset anyone with my posts about waitressing. I honestly enjoy what I do, so I really should not be complaining. However, humans need to vent and why notttttt on my blog. Please do not take any offense/ I hope I made you smile!

MLT is for ME

I am currently at the Starbucks located inside of Union Station in Washington, DC.

Why?

MLT CLT 2013!

MLT or Management Leaders for Tomorrow is the premier development institution that equips high potential African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans with key ingredients– skills, coaching and door-opening relationships– that unlock their potential (ml4t.org).

I am very honored to be part of such an amazing group of young professionals. The Career Leadership Transition Seminar we are all attending is our final gathering as the Career Prep Class of 2013. Not only is it our final seminar, but it’s our most important as well. Today is our “Super Day”, in which we all get interviewed by huge corporations for a full-time opportunity. It is all very exciting and extremely frightening at the same time.

I have landed an interview with Kraft Foods and the CIA. I am nervous, but I have prepared as much as possible and at this point I know that whatever is meant to be will find its way.

To think, last time I was in DC I was attending The Sweetlife Festival at the Merriweather Post Pavilion. That was sophomore year in college. Now, a rising senior, I am attending a seminar that can potentially alter my life forever. Growing up will never cease to surprise me.
