Wow... tonight was a truly horrid night. I got to work into a good mood but soon discovered I would be the ONLY waitress working. At first I had confidence that I could handle it, and it seemed that way for a while until a flood of customers came in. Then came the foreigners. And the ditzy blondes. And the drunk college students. My boss agreed to help me out when necessary (he doesn't really do anything anyway besides greet people and hand out menus), so that was nice. But one arrogant woman snapped her fingers at me and impatiently told me "We've been waiting for our sushi for a half an hour!" Well, that's not that uncommon at our restaurant, especially when we were so busy. She got so upset that she canceled her order (which confused the hell out of my korean/japanese boss, as she was in the middle of making the order). Meanwhile, everything in the restaurant was a mess because I didn't get a chance to clean the tables or vacuum or anything. Then six (I think they were drunk..) people came in at about 9:15 (We close at 9:30!) I was so exhausted and could hardly think. But, I got about $98, so I was happy :D Time to sleep!
