:: It's Been One of those Weeks ::
It's been a pretty long week at work and I'm pretty tired. The season is over and things have slowed down quite a bit at the restaurant but since they closed half the place, us servers are doing alright with money. Still, I should be doing better than I have and this last week has been especially brutal for me in terms of money. I'm not in any danger of going homeless or hungry (though I will have to cut back on beer nights with the guys) but it's discouraging after a long night of pushing seafood and you walk home feeling like the night was a complete waste. And while the other servers might have a decent night, there's not a thing I could have done to make it better.

Our host is the brother of the owner and comfortably in the retirement stage of his life. He doesn't have to work but he hosts and keeps an eye on the restaurant to keep himself busy. He's nice enough guy once you get past the grumpy-old-man facade but he sometimes seats customers wildly inconsistently and for whatever reason, I got the bitch treatment this entire week. Complaining won't do any good since all he'll do is become ornery and tell you to leave if you don't like here. I suppose I could find work elsewhere (for example, at an Ad Agency) but I'm too far gone to want to learn the ins and outs of a different restaurant. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy my place of work, I like being a waiter, and I'm grateful to have this job but I just had one of those weeks and I need to vent a litte. Thing will get better.

I hope.
