Back in the world again

GD, I just worked twenty hours in two days! Ten hours a day, no breaks, just walking. I know this does not sound like an actual accomplishment or suffering, it ain't no sweatshop :), but from not working in 9 months to working a 50 hour workweek is hardcore shit people.

I’m am now (again) a waiter slash bartender btw. Yesterday, a crazy women grabbed my hand and told me about my beautiful white smile (like I didn’t know that yet) and thanked me for listening to her crazy ass story. Crazy bitch lost someone years ago and she keeps telling the same story to everyone over and over again. A bitch told me later. They let me wait on her on purpose. I shall smite them later.

I have to say I’m really enjoying this waitering/bartending stuff. It feels good feeling useful again. Plus, I’m doing one hell of a job at it. Better than the owners anyway. They have no drive, no passion and a cranky attitude. Not a good combo. I actually enjoy working with people and interacting. It shows and people appreciate that. People come up to when they’re leaving to thank me for looking out for them. That’s saying something right?

I think the owners have been there too long. There’s no way they’ll change. And the place has potential. the right location, the right interior and the right menu. They just need to filter out the bad seeds and put in some new ones. You know, people like me :). And they have to schedule in more personnel. Sometimes you have just two people doing the dishes, making and serving drinks, serving food, taking orders, settling checks, cleaning the bar, take away dirty dishes, cleaning tables etc etc. Well, two people and 60 tables: not gonna work. And the owners keep thinking: less personnel means more income. Not. When service SUCKS (in capitals) people will not come back and will not chat their friends up about it. You have to put in money to make money. It’s as simple as that.

I’m beat. I’m going to have a shower and after that…nothing. Just nothing.

No. They thank you for looking out for them so that they can get you in bed, you dumbass!

Kirsti - They don't reimburse travel costs. WE SHALL SMITE THEM EVEN MORE.

Snakey - No they don't! They are all pregger mothers and grannies and other old people. OLD PEOPLE DO NOT WANT TO GET ME INTO BED. They want to hold hands and tell me about their sorrows...I think.

There was this one guy who was totally checking me out the whole time I was walking up and down the terrass. He was kinda cute, but a little too...preppy and faggy. Plus, he was a lousy tipper. Maybe I should have let him touch me?

See? That's what happens when you don't let other people grab your ass. You get shitty tips.

I've never been here before, that being said I have 37 lbs. of coke in my nutsack right now. You wanna meet in the back alley?

Billy the Bootlegger said...

There's coke in there? Man, have I been missing out. Serves me well for swallowing.

Billy the Bootlegger said...

Snakey - I'll try that tomorrow. Just ass-grabbing or a lil' bit more if the other one is willing and able?

marriedman said...

I like to give away free coke by way of getting head. It's pretty fucking awesome, isn't it snakey?

yeah thats right, snakey gives good head.
