Sure, it looked like a glamorous position when you attended your friend's wedding last month. Watching the banquet manager, or maitre d’, escorting the bride & groom into the room, then directing his waiters in serving the food, then later even taking center stage during the cake cutting ceremony, seemed like a cool job. You even thought, hey, I would like to do that. Now it's time to tell you the truth!
Don't Check-up on me with a Squirt Bottle in Your Hand!
Here goes the banquet manager bitching on those restaurant waiters again...
I had off today and took my wife out to lunch at the neighborhood Fridays Restaurant. The hostess seated us quickly with a smile. The waitress came over within 20 seconds to greet us (and she didn't even say "how you guys doing today", so my lunch started off on a good note.
We ordered our food that was later brought out quicker than we had anticipated by the runner and it was still piping hot. Another good sign. And it tasted great, fresh, spiced well. Ah...finally a nice meal.
Then our waitress came over to check up on us and asked how our meal was. All while holding a dirty rag and squirt bottle. Apparently prior to checking on us she was wiping down a few tables behind me (my wife noticed this).
Can't she do this shit, then put down the Windex and rag BEFORE checking on us?
