I closed tonight and made $42. We were busyish, but they were all big tables -- and my section couldn't accommodate them. So even though we had lots of people coming in the door, I think I had about six tables. My sales were all of $300, just plain pathetic. Last Monday I made $37, I'm hoping tomorrow will be better than that at least. It's so frustrating to sit in an empty restaurant, knowing there's nothing I can do to earn more money. It was also terribly boring -- didn't even have any stupid customers!
So, in lieu of a story, tonight I'm sending out the call for guest posts! It can be a story already published on your blog, or a brand-new story. Or, if you don't have a blog but would like to send in a story, that's okay too! Go ahead and submit your story, and tell me if you want me to use your name or list you as an anonymous writer. You can also send in more than one
I'll post a story every week for as long as I get submissions. If you have a story you'd like me to feature, please email me at slightlycranky at hotmail.com!
