The anonymous writer of Waiter Rant is about to have his cover blown - his book Thanks for the Tip--Confessions of a Cynical Waiter will appear shortly. He's handed in his notice but wonders if he can ever really quit...
"Someone recently told me that quitting the restaurant business is like quitting smoking. You may think you’ve quit forever – but there’s always the possibility you’ll suffer a relapse.
Maybe I could help pharmaceutical companies develop a patch that transmits a daily dose of aggravation, sexual harassment, unfair labor practices, excitement, boredom, high pressure, late night snacking, customer entitlement, nicotine, greasy staff meals, alcohol, sleeping late, and tooth decay though the skin. Slap that sucker on your arm and it’ll be like you never left!"
I'll miss the stories - some of the best and wittiest writing from the trenches.
