6 Things All Restaurant Hosts Hate Hearing

No matter what restaurant you are in, hosts hear the same things every single day. Whether it is servers or customers, being rude to a host is never a good idea...we happen to control just about everything in the restaurant, including where the servers serve and the customers sit.

1.“Can we actually sit over there?”

There is almost always a reason we sit you where we do! It may be because other tables are being held, or because the table you may want is in another servers section and we are not able to sit them at the time.

2.”Can I have the next table? My last table only got drinks.”

I understand that while this may be frustrating, that happens to everyone and when we are busy I am not always able to seat one server multiple times in a row.

3.”Why does that server have more people than me?”

This one is what makes me the most annoyed. I do not have magical powers and cannot control how many people come in and when. I have a system and it works. Eventually numbers will even out.

4.”I want to have section 3 today”

I can’t give everyone everything they want. So, you get what you get and don’t throw a fit.

5.”I have too many tables, stop seating me.”

This is something very hard because I don’t want to overwhelm anyone, but when we are crazy busy sometimes I have no choice but for everyone to have a full section.

6.”Hosting is so easy compared to serving.”

All though hosting can be, and does seem simple, it gets overly frustrating because constantly trying to please absolutely everyone is not an easy task when you are stuck in the middle between helping customers and helping serves. And as we all know, the customer always comes first.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
