I always make a point to be chipper with my guests and always be in a good mood. No one has ever commented on it really besides the occasional, “I need some coffee…like you!”
However, during the first couple months I started serving (so obviously I was very excited), probably the best assumption about myself happened!
One of our younger hosts approached me in fits of laughter. “Oh my God,” she said, trying to talk and gasp for air at the same time. “You will never guess what your table just said about you.”
Uh ohhh. This could go good or bad.
“They asked if you were on drugs. HAHAHA. Seriously. They literally came up to me and said, “Hey you know that bubbly blonde waitress? Does she pop pills or anything to get her going…she’s so bouncy and energetic!! It’s not natural!”
I just about died of laughter…my place of employment is very strict about drinking, drugs, and even cigarettes.
But I’ll take it as a compliment…better than being the restaurant grump!
