I love Friday nights

Work was awesome last night. I had the smallest station, 4 tables and my sales were, I believe, the highest, $745.00. Mind you, we don't sell any liquor. I made more money off my little ass station than other girls who had about two more tables a piece. I have a huge believer as a server that it isn't the amount of tables, it is the quality of the service. Ps-as long as you have a fair hostess, and a fair rotation in seating. The area and clientle that we have is tough. This is a rural community and it probably kills them to pay $16.99 for a Rib Eye when they can go eat at a buffet. Than after they receive a $60 check for two people, again, no beer, wine, or liquor, alot of them feel they have spent enough and there a few who actually stiff the servers where I work. My tips averages last night were between 15-20% which I shoot for 25% but I was happy. So were the customers.
