We have all heard the stereotypes about sorority girls and how they are all obsessed with their littles and bigs. I'm just here to let everyone know those stereotypes are true and here are some of the funniest tweets about it.
Emotional: a word used often nowadays to insult someone for their sensitivity towards a multitude of things.
If you cry happy tears, you're emotional. If you express (even if it's in a healthy way) that something is bothering you, you're sensitive. If your hormones are in a funk and you just happen to be sad one day, you're emotional AND sensitive.
Let me tell you something that goes against everything people have probably ever told you. Being emotional and being sensitive are very, very good things. It's a gift. Your ability to empathize, sympathize, and sensitize yourself to your own situation and to others' situations is a true gift that many people don't possess, therefore many people do not understand.
Never let someone's negativity toward this gift of yours get you down. We are all guilty of bashing something that is unfamiliar to us: something that is different. But take pride in knowing God granted this special gift to you because He believes you will use it to make a difference someday, somehow.
This gift of yours was meant to be utilized. It would not be a part of you if you were not meant to use it. Because of this gift, you will change someone's life someday. You might be the only person that takes a little extra time to listen to someone's struggle when the rest of the world turns their backs.
In a world where a six-figure income is a significant determinant in the career someone pursues, you might be one of the few who decides to donate your time for no income at all. You might be the first friend someone thinks to call when they get good news, simply because they know you will be happy for them. You might be an incredible mother who takes too much time to nurture and raise beautiful children who will one day change the world.
To feel everything with every single part of your being is a truly wonderful thing. You love harder. You smile bigger. You feel more. What a beautiful thing! Could you imagine being the opposite of these things? Insensitive and emotionless?? Both are unhealthy, both aren't nearly as satisfying, and neither will get you anywhere worth going in life.
Imagine how much richer your life is because you love other's so hard. It might mean more heartache, but the reward is always worth the risk. Imagine how much richer your life is because you are overly appreciative of the beauty a simple sunset brings. Imagine how much richer your life is because you can be moved to tears by the lessons of someone else's story.
Embrace every part of who you are and be just that 100%. There will be people who criticize you for the size of your heart. Feel sorry for them. There are people who are dishonest. There are people who are manipulative. There are people who are downright malicious. And the one thing people say to put you down is "you feel too much." Hmm...
Sounds like more of a compliment to me. Just sayin'.
Being a server can be just as rewarding as it can be challenging. The hours aren't always the best or most flexible, you deal with a lot of BS and high maintenance people, but you also have an opportunity to make a lot of connections and meet people that literally become your second family.
From big restaurants to small, these 21 things are relatable to any and all servers:
1. There's no such thing as fun Friday and Saturday nights.
These are THE nights to be scheduled. Obviously the restaurant is busiest on the weekend and you'll make the most money, but you give up some fun nights of your own.
2. People not knowing how to act when you tell them that they can choose where to sit.
Saying "sit anywhere you'd like" to a group of people causes them noticeable stress. Prepare to awkwardly maze around the restaurant waiting for them to pick a spot.
3. Having an awkward table greeting and then thinking about it for 25 minutes.
Whether you introduce yourself weirdly, stutter, or forget the specials, a weird table greeting is never the right foot to start off on.
4. "So, what do you recommend?"
The million dollar question.
5. Modifications and substitutions out the wazoo.
"Can I get the salmon? BUT without...*insert 20 modifications*"
Here we go again.
6. Avoiding side work.
When you sure as hell know you're gonna have to do it to leave anyway...why do we do this to ourselves?!?!?
7. Tables saying they're ready to order when they're 100% not.
You don't have to lie to me— I'll come back in a few minutes.
8. A walk-in 15 minutes before closing.
"Wait, are you guys still open?"
9. Silently thinking "not my section, not my section, not my section" when a large table comes through the door and you're busy.
Before you know it, they're in your section anyway.
10. Sharing funny stories with co-workers in small segments in the back.
One story could, in fact, take all night to tell.
11. "Can you split the check four ways?"
Yes, but I don't want to.
12. People who expect everything immediately after they ask for it.
High maintenance tables... a total vibe killer.
13. The flag down.
Please do not wave me down across the restaurant for that extra ranch.
14. Restaurant drama.
Behind the scenes of every great restaurant with close servers is a whooooole lotta gossip! It's how we kill time.
15. Knowing you're getting a bomb tip from your family or people you know.
Mom and Dad want to come out to eat while you're serving? BE. MY. GUEST.
16. The regulars.
You know exactly where they want to sit and what they're going to order.
BTW, they never get dessert.
17. Dreading a double 3 days in advance.
Yes, it's Tuesday and I'm 100% complaining about the double I have to work on Friday already. It's called mental preparation.
18. The awkward check battle of a table of adult friends.
"Give it to me!"
"No, I'll take it."
"Susan, please, you paid last month."
I'll just awkwardly put the check on the end of the table and you guys can enter the boxing ring.
19. "I'm working."
The answer to every text asking "what're you doing tonight?" or "what're your plans this weekend?"
20. The feeling of a good tip when you didn't expect it.
Opening up the book after they leave and seeing a bomb tip is for sure the best feeling.
21. Having a second family.
In the end, your coworkers are your family. After all, you're with them more than your biological one—whether you like it or not.
