Let's Hear It For The Waitstaff!

Let's Hear It For The Waitstaff!

In honor of today being National Waitstaff Day, I thought it would be a good time to give a roaring round of applause to all of you readers who work at restaurants, bars, and cafes. I worked as a bartender/waitress, and know how difficult, frustrating, and exhausting it can be, so if you eat out today give an extra tip and remember that your server is a person too! A good waitperson not only delivers your meal, but stops by the table to check on you, keeps an eye on your table, and deals with comments about food/drink that they didn't make. They totally deserve a salute and today's the day to leave a 20% tip, so cheers to all of the waiters out there!
