So yesterday I worked all day. I have a shift 11am-2:30pm and then take break, resume work at 4:30pm- 9:30 pm. But yesterday I was unable to take my break due to constant customer flow. x-x really really not fun. But after work I got to hang out with my friend that's been nothing but awesome to me. So that made it all worth it.

Today I worked 11am-2:30pm. Not bad. It just gets irritating sometimes since it'll be quiet then 4 different tables will walk in within 5 minutes of each other. That's really really hard to balance and get everyone's orders just right.

Today I had this one table that asked for their child to get fried rice as a side. So there's 2 different fried rices in the back, one's plain and just for lunch and the other is made by the chef fresh with veggies and meat. I thought getting a $2 fried rice would be fine, but apparently the customer didn't believe I gave him fried rice since the child had vegetables in his and his plate had plain rice that came with his meal. So I had to take it back and etc... Its like the 3rd time I've made a "mistake" in ordering food. The first time was writing out the word "Combination" so the cook thought it was a different meal since I needed to write "combo". The second time was a table was like "Sesame chicken" and I'm like "Okay" then they go "So the Sweet and sour chicken will feed us both?" And I go "...yes... Sweet and Sour chicken for you?" And they're like "Yes" So I change it they wanted the sesame x.x

Its hardddd

    Two years ago I was fortunate enough to visit ChinaTown in Chicago and have real food, could not get enough, I just love turning up the spice on the food.

    Sometimes you just can't not please people. Put a big smile, apologize and go on to the next person. You are not a mind reader and I don't see that you personally messed up the orders.

    It will get better, does sound like you are really enjoying this job!!

    I waited tables for many years after high school. It is very hard tiring work , and making mistakes is just how it goes. I even spilled ice tea on someones white pants. It happenes . Keep smiling and remember the customer is always right and you are being paid to be there. Good luck-Bobbi-ne

    ...I used to go to china town in chicago every year, sometimes even as often as 3 times in the same year, this is actually the first full year I haven't visited... I miss it ._.
