Smooth Ridin'

Tonight was...well...pretty great. Patrons were happy (and generous), the staff was cool and collected, even though the Regional Manager was poking around. We all get along with him really well...we don't really feel like he's scrutinizing us or judging us (even though, secretly, he is). We know that he is there to see how things are going, and he will definitely give us criticism, but it's not direct, I guess (unlike corporate refill bitch). He's just pleasant, and he listens to us. It's pretty cool. Originally, I attested the happy evening to the fact that The Other Manager wasn't working (see the previous post), but now that I think about it, I think it was because of the the RM. He makes us feel good about the job we're doing. It's amazing how affective a positive attitude can be.

Close tomorrow.

P.S. I had a job interview for a part-time position at the local community college today...I'm hoping I get to wave good-bye to full-time serving soon! :)

P.P.S. Don't worry, I'll still have plenty to write about! :) :)

I once worked for a pretty expensive restaurant owned by a limited partnership. The managing partner lived about a 5 hr drive away so he only stopped in maybe 4 times a year.

But you had to respect the man as he always shook your hand, looked you in the eye, and thank you for working so hard for him.

I just found your blog (thanks Google Reader and the random blogs that pop up) and I must say it's beginning to be like crack for me :)
