It never fails

Another Friday night at the restaurant, another concert at the
arena up the road, another chaotic scene! Actually, even though
we did get really busy last night, it was much busier last Friday
night. Of course, it may have seemed that way as last week we
were shorthanded in the kitchen and also the waitstaff. Last night
we had all hands on board. Never fails, when you are fully staffed,
it is NEVER as busy as when you are shorthanded. Those of you
who have any sort of restaurant work experience can attest to that.
Heck, I can remember times when I basically drafted friends who
were visiting me and put them to work; Lola on more than one
occasion, Michelle, Mike, Sandra, even Lisa and Peter have volun-
teered to pitch in during desperate occasions! Hopefully tonight
it will be a bit more peaceful and I can have a more social evening.
I do have to report a re-hire at the restaurant, albeit only part-time
and with sort of a 'probation' test period. *DRUM ROLL* The one
and only Shaniqua - yes, ghetto fabulous - is back on a trial basis.
Last week Shelley, our part-time vegan waitress, gave her 2 weeks
notice. We had heard that Shaniqua was unemployed and kind of
wishing to come back, so rather than put an ad in the paper, trying
to find someone and then train him/her, it was decided to give
Shaniqua a chance. After all, she was immensely popular with many
of the regular customers. Personally, I feel it probably won't last
too long, maybe a month or 2, before something will happen again,
but until then, let the laughs and the good times roll!
