Hello my doves!
So it may come as a surprise to some of y'all, but while I'm not doin my thang with the HDO crew I like to moonlight as a hostess in Asbury Park! Yes yes, I am just an average working Jane like the rest of the world. Don't get me wrong, I really do like my job...but sometimes it can get a little boring. That's where my little imagination comes into play and helps me find ways of getting through the slow moments at work. Here are just a few ways you can entertain yourself in the restaurant biz:
Typically at hostess stands there are things you can write on with those cool pencils that wipe away. So when I have some down time, I like to write little notes, make patterns, or just draw. I tend to draw mainly hearts and stars...fuck horshoes.
Today was knock knock joke day. Knock knock...who's there?...interrupting cow...interruptin-...MOO!!!
Prank the Servers:
Servers wear aprons...put shit in them!!! Leave love notes, ice cubes, monopoly money, etc. My goal is to put a buzzer in an apron and then page it so that it freaks out right by their crotch!!!
Teach the Staff New Words:
One hostess taught a Spanish speaking busser the word "twat". He really likes that word now.
This requires an audience. Stand behind the hostess desk and then press an imaginary button and slowly sink down...classic Austin Powers style.
Well I hope that gives you guys some help in finding ways of getting through your 9 to 5's.
Until next time!
