On A Good Night

On the great nights

(Note: I am enjoying the final day of my mini vacation.  Having a great trip.  Met my favorite musician and a personal hero yesterday.  Today I will be taking the scenic drive through the Ozark hills of Central Missouri.  This is a post I wrote a couple months ago.  Not my standard fare, but I hope you all enjoy it.)

Some nights I just love waiting tables.  They are the nights where everything goes right.  The guests are congenial and friendly.  You make connections with your tables and they are happy.  They take your recommendations and commend you on them afterwards.  It almost doesn’t seem like work.

    I know exactly what you mean and this was a big reason I enjoyed waitressing for so long.
    Hope you have a fun [and safe] rest of your trip – the leaves are going to be spectacular I bet!

      The leaves were incredible. It was great to get off the interstate and see some of the beauty of the state that you miss rushing from one place to another.

    It would be nice if people came out wanting to have a good time. Every night would be just like the one you described. Too often though one person is pissed that they have to pay for a meal and everybody suffers.

    I love the nights when everybody is in a good mood.
