Despite what you’ve heard, being a server is a tough job. As long as you’re sitting in our section, we’re responsible for your happiness and your lives–if you want to get technical.
Every time I try to leave the service industry, something keeps calling me back. Maybe it’s the money, maybe it’s the family atmosphere or maybe it’s the hundreds of memories the job brings. Every food and beverage job is different, but here are some things the server in your life will relate to.

LOL, what’s a break?
Doing the math when a table leaves the total amount without specifying the tip.
Blaming the Back of House staff when you’re in the weeds.
