Best Tip I Ever Got!

So I work at a family restaurant with a buffet in the mornings. Also, a co worker who despises me. So, one day, near the end of the shift, a girl walks in and without a word to anyone, goes to the buffet and starts loading up. Might I mention, the whole time, she’s yacking…

Stuck Serving Reviews: Hops and Hominy San Francisco

One thing Industry folks know is their food, service, and cocktails! After all we do the same thing all day/night long so when we go out we are usually the most critical of all diners (but will still tip 20-18% even if we are less than satisfied lol). One thing we love here at Stuck…

Most Awkward Attempt At A Pickup Ever…

So the story behind this gem of a love note is that the woman who my co worker was serving had explained that she had skipped work that day and was playing hooky. However, the excuse she used to her boss was that she had diarrhea. Hence her  use of “diarrhea” in her suggestion to…

Stuck Serving Again….

I’m stuck serving, again. I promised myself I was done serving, but somewhere in the back of my head was a voice that sneered, “You’ll be back. You always come back.” Serving to me is like the crazy ex girlfriend that always shows up at the worst time, forcing you back into a relationship. You…

Cloudy with a chance of ignorance…

I was on the patio. Great, best section. Clouds were rolling in and it was going to rain. 40% chance of rain. It was 100% in my book as it started to pour. Two tourists from eastern europe (no ice in the water, no tip on the bill.) started moving the umbrella over a table…
