What it’s like being a waitress

Hey guys, I’m new to this so it can be a little hard for me to open up and really say how I feel on the internet about certain things.

Today I wanted to talk about something that I’ve been wanting to write about for a while, the restaurant and serving industry.  I’ve been a waitress for about five years now and I have met some of the nicest people ever but I’ve also met some of the worst people ever.

I’ve had people think they can talk to myself and other servers in a degrading way, they’ve yelled at us for little things like not putting enough ice in their cup, or they wanted light butter on their toast and they think the chef put too much butter, for not taking their orders fast enough, I could go on but I’d be here all day.

Recently someone ordered takeout and we didn’t have tap so they left without paying and they wrote a review about it, some people are just like that, rude, arrogant, and entitled.

Being a waitress can be fun, but it is also emotionally draining and physically exhausting. It’s not as easy as people make it seem to be. Not everyone tips, not everyone is nice, not everyone is understanding, and we just have to accept that.

I just can’t comprehend how people think they can treat other people sometimes. I’m not writing this to whine or complain, but I’m writing this so people can kind of understand how hard it can be to be a server because I think our work is underrated.

On the bright side, we do meet some amazing people who make the job worth it. I appreciate those people more than they’ll ever know.

Thanks for listening guys, I know this post was short and kind of rant-like but when I started this blog I told myself to try to be as raw and open with my readers as much as I can, and that is what I’m doing. Thanks again for reading guys.

International Women’s Day!

Hey everyone! In light of International women’s day a few days ago, I wanted to talk about what it’s like to be a woman in today’s society. I find it an honour to be a young woman in this world. I think women are faced with so many obstacles. I really do think women are the architects of society. We are mothers, daughter, sisters, cousins, friends, etc. Our maternal instinct takes care of the world. Although women have come along way over the centuries and decades, I still feel that we are not as respected as much as we should be. I have the utmost respect for good men in this world, the ones who do good in this world, are amazing fathers, husbands, brothers, friends, etc. But I still feel women should be respected for all that we do for this world. Like Beyonce once said, it is hard to believe how amazing women really are. The most amazing woman in my life is my mother, she has taught me everything I know and she is absolutely incredible. I encourage all of you to make sure you show how much you love all the special women in your lives, and if you are women to always know your worth. We all should embrace and empower each other because the world really would not spin around if it wasn’t for us. Thank you all for taking the time to read my post!
