Dear Restaurant Go-ers,
Do you love your family? Do you love your friends? Do you love Jesus? Do you love spending quality time with these wonderful people on the holidays? I’m sure you do!
SO DO I. I have family too. I have friends too. I also know of a being named Jesus. And yes, I love spending quality time with these wonderful people on the holidays.
I would just like to put this out there because I am not too sure many restaurant go-ers realize that restaurant workers are human beings just like them. Yes, I do enjoy seeing restaurant go-ers dine with those they care about and bask in the glory of having someone bring their bread and wine out to them on this glorious day we call Easter, but my heart breaks when I cannot spend such time with my own family. No, it’s not being selfish, and it’s not bitching about my job. It’s simply a memo to all you non-restaurant workers out there who forget that restaurant workers are just like them underneath the name tag, apron and beverage tray. We’re people too and we have families and friends and Jesus in our lives too.
So for all of you out there, please remember that just because I’m a server stuck in a restaurant all day on Easter Sunday doesn’t mean that I don’t wish I was home. Please remember to be polite, quick, and of course, generous in your tipping.
A server who has family, friends and Jesus in her life
