Today my first table was a group of elderly women, and they all kept giving me compliments on how pretty they thought my name was. Then they were telling me as a heads up that they love lots of mints, because we give mints when we bring out the check. So when they were leaving they told me how much they liked me and how good of a job I did and that they want to come back to me.
At the end of the night this elderly couple and their daughter and grandson were getting up from their table and I kind of slipped around the old man so I could put a menu away but I gave him this great big smile. As I was walking back he stopped me and said “I saw you you dancing around behind me over there….. errr (looking at my name tag) .. Bridget. Oh thats a very pretty name.” I thanked him and we laughed and chatted until his wife came up and he said “This is Bridget!” and she replied “Oh hi sweetheart!” I gave her a compliment on her suit, which was a greenish blue, and I said I had a blazer that was a similar color. She then said my favorite thing I had heard that night “Looks like we have more in common than just our good looks.”
Sometimes I just really really like my job.
