I hate Hate HATE my job.
Im a table singer/hostess at the Macaroni Grill in town. My job, other than guarding the gates of hell, is to go to tables and sing for people. And not easy Brittney spears, pop type shit, no, i sing friggin italian arias for these people. Every day i head off to work in the worlds least flattering uniform in the history of uniforms and get paid less than all the other hostesses because my primary function is supposed to be singing and that means im supposed to get tips. Apparently the people dont know this. I get called to the table. I do my thing and then i stand there smiling, thinking this is the part where you hand me the wad of cash and it never happens. WHAT THE HELL PEOPLE!
And if that wasnt horrible enough the enite population of north america comes into the resturaunt every night. These people come in and say "i need a table for 8 and we need one right now becasue we have a flight to catch in 2 hours" i say "did you call ahead?" and they say "well gosh no! i thought that when we got here the sky would open up and a table for us would appear out of nowhere" i say "well im sorry sir, youre just a flaming moron." And they get mad! "what? you dont have a table available for us? You mean there are other people who eat here? thats un acceptable. You have just lost my bussiness." Oh thats right because i, the tip deprived hostess who you have just yelled at, am so sorry to see you go. Obviously your absence is going to hurt us seeing as WERE FULL TO THE POINT OF SUFFOCATION AND HAVE NO ROOM TO SEAT YOU. Gee, i hope we dont go out of bussiness becasue you leave and tell all your weak ass friends not to come here either. Those hunderds of other people who are already eating here couldnt possibly keep us going if YOU were to leave.
damn these people. Wretched unholy demons. Its food. Youre going to eat again tomorrow. its not the end of the world if we cant seat you within 45 seconds of you being here. Just calm down, be patient and for the love of god TIP YOUR SINGER.

    I've been to the Macaroni Grill on the loop here, and damn I feel for you... those ARE, in fact, the worst uniforms I've seen in a coon's age, and having to sing to useless schmoes, and get nothing.... BAH!

    The best response to the "you've lost our business" bitch is to gesture around in an indicitive manner and say, "do we look like we *need* your paltry business, fuckface?"

    ...I work in tech support for an internet company. We constantley get customers threatening to leave us if we don't provide goddamn free PC consulting, the thing is they're telling the wrong person because I don't give a shit. I highly doubt that you say anything rude to your customers, but always have the urge. I could be wrong though. I just know from experience that if I say anything remotely wrong, I'll get shit from my supervisors. *sigh* I wish I could have a job that I could enjoy...

      do you know that restaurant has nothing that does not have dead animals or oocytes or something in it? even plain pasta has eggs. and if you just ask for some of the pasta toppings (basically some "fresh" or canned vegetables", they'll charge you extra for more toppings while retaining the base price of the pasta. so for 10 dollars you get about 1/2 a cup of food. thanks guys.

    I'm just imagining the expressions on such assholes' faces if the hostess were to break out in a particularly heart-rending performance of Bocelli/Brightman's "Time To Say Goodbye". I mean, if you get no tips for your singing anyway, that might at least give a little satisfaction. ;-)

      but apparently you can fry maccaroni. I went to TGI Fridays the other night and Fried Maccaroni is on the menu, alongside the fried green beans.
