10 Things All New Servers Will Experience

As a server, you experience so many things in only a few hour shift. You pick up on things that experienced servers don't because they're so used to it. Most of the time, you're overwhelmed and stressed to the max. Here are a few things all new servers experience during their shifts.

1. Thinking "I've totally got this"

Why am I going through all of this training? All I have to do is write this order down and put it in the system...

2. Thinking "I DON'T HAVE THIS"

What is going on???? When did all of these people get here? Why is this order so complicated?

3. Dropping. Everything.

The smell of French Dressing will stick with me forever. That took forever to clean up.

4. Being yelled at for something that isn't your fault.

I'm sorry the kitchen is slow! I really am! I can't make the food myself!

5. Doing math in your head

Especially if your cash register doesn't have a change button. Thankful for the ones who just say "keep the change".

6. Thinking "am I hard of hearing or are these people just quiet?"

I can't count how many times I ask people to repeat what they said. Speak up!

7. Thinking you're messing everything up

TBH you probably are...

8. Asking so many questions. So many.

How do you enter in a deluxe pizza minus onions plus mushrooms minus tomatoes??

9. Trying to be as nice as possible

It's difficult when someone is yelling at you for their order being late. Or their chocolate milk not coming with their meal.

10. Thinking "will this get any easier?"

Hopefully. It has to, right?

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
