THINGS I ONLY SAID WHEN I WAS A RESTAURANT SERVER
My server voice is at least an octave higher than my regular voice.
- •"I love the ______"I don't like a lot of things, but please just order.
- •"Reposado" or "anejo"So tequila, much knowledge.
- •"I'm sorry" to hostsHosts bear the brunt of servers' frustrations. They're either seating you too much or not enough or they gave you a table of truly terrible people. At the end of my shift I would sometimes apologize for my rudeness or anger. It wasn't their fault.
- •"Yes the table vibrates."Table 33. Maybe the air conditioner? I'd pretend to care for a second and then go do 7 million things.
