Nicknames

(From the days before POS and chits, when everything was handwritten)

I trained a waitress who couldn't remember table numbers to save her soul. I didn't realize she'd been having so much trouble until I was expediting orders for her tables "Preg" and "Bald."
She said, "Oh, I was going to cross that off the ticket before I gave it to them."

  1. Before I got better at organizing people at tables I would write descriptions. "Green," "Yellow," "Fat," "Kid," "Lesbian." It served me well.

  2. I think I've waited on her.
