Nine Server Problems You Know to be True

Working in restaurants can be very nerve wracking, getting adjusted to the hustle and bustle of the everyday dinner and lunch rushes. Every workplace in the food industry is different, but we share a lot of the same everyday struggles of being a server.

1.) You hear the phrase “I need food runners!” or “Hands in the window!” Way too often, you seriously consider pulling your hair out or even your availability to work on certain busy days.

2.) You silently freak out on the inside when you see your manager talking to one of your tables, especially right after you check on them to make sure everything is okay.

3.) Servers complain about never having money, but when the floor manager asks if anyone wants to go home, you break your neck to get out of there.

4.) Right in the middle of the dinner rush or Sunday morning rush you think everything's going fine… Until you discover absolutely nothing is stocked at all. Way to go team.


5.) A guest complains that they’re cold, so you secretly act like you’re going to turn the heat on.

6.) When the dining room is empty, but the floor manager still refuses to cut the floor so you can leave...

7.) I didn't know the answer to "how are you today" was "diet coke".

8.) When you think everything is fine, until your guest out of no where asks to speak to a manager.

9.) That feeling like you finally have your life together for .00000003 seconds because your apron is full of pens.

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.

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.
