Fallin' Off

I've been so busy lately, I haven't really worked...that's both good and bad. I really need the money. It sucks being broke. Hopefully someday I won't have to worry--or wait tables. Ugh.
Both last week and this week, I was scheduled on the patio. Last week, it rained, so I was sent home. Yesterday, I was on the patio, and I had one table in an hour and a half and made $2 (it was a small child and a grandma sharing a salad). I was so frustrated. I was also frustrated that they had so many people on a Monday night. There were 12 servers inside, 2 on the patio, and 2 bartenders. Everyone was standing around with their thumbs up their ass. It was beat.
There was no need for 2 people on the patio. That's where seniority should've come in....
I'm gonna quit while I'm ahead. I really don't want to get into bitching about management again.

Dinner tomorrow (no patio!).

What the hell? 14 servers on a Monday?!?!?!? I don't care how many tables the restaurant has, to ever need that many servers on a Monday would be a miracle! When will managers who do the schedule get it in their head, you piss the servers off, they leave! Also, they are wasting their money bringing you all in. Must have some lazy ass managers. I like it if the servers are making money, I will gladly run their food all night. Happy servers, happy floor.

That stinks! I will, however, never think about your establishment's servers' thumbs the same way again.
