Workin' Weekend


Now, I know I complain about work. Sometimes a lot. And this weekend wasn't all happiness and flowers. Heck, getting triple sat after I was already overwhelmed definitely didn't make me smile. But now, sitting here and looking back over the weekend, it was actually kind of a good weekend! Work time fun included:

  • Joking around with the busser about the unicorn tattoo we think that he needs to get
  • Making up nicknames for each other (I am supposedly the Puppeteer and the Instigator)
  • Nicknaming my work husband Sassy Pepperjack Burger (he was being majorly sass on Saturday)
  • Finding out a certain fav coworker is engaged (but shh, it's a secret!)
  • Getting tipped $10 on an annoying to go order (if you get something to go from a restaurant you should at least tip a little!)
  • Key lime pie (it's new and I ate some and it was good)
  • My coworker singing Bootylicious and getting it stuck in my head
  • A $10 tip on a $21 bill
  • Getting through Sunday with only one major stressful moment

I gotta say, if I had to be working the whole weekend at least I had a little fun.

How was your weekend?

Doesn't sound at all bad, you got some positives out of your working weekend :) I had a great weekend, attended my very first Calcotada, a big tratidion/feast here, so much fun!


Key lime pie is ALWAYS a plus to any day :) Glad you found some fun in your working weekend!


i'm glad you made it though the weekend! I've been feeling rubbish! BUT the plus was it was soooo hot yesterday and i knew the parlour would be heaving and i DON'T WORK THERE ANYMORE hahahahah :)


It is all about finding the silver living and having fun where you can. I'm glad that you had some awesome times over your working weekend!

Good tips ALWAYS make it worth it, no matter what happened. It's a dealbreaker in the industry. One time I got slipped a twenty just for giving a man a seat. I'll always remember that!

i admit there are certainly things i miss about waiting tables. there are other things i certainly don't miss though!


waitressing is the center of my best and worst memories, so i know exactly how you feel :)


You gotta love those generous tippers...and now I want key lime pie!


your job sounds a lot funner than mine. Today I got stay on hold for Fed Ex customer service for twenty minutes. good times....not.


a $10 on $21 bill! AWESOME.


aww good! A little bit of sunshine in a working weekend is always so nice! :)

ilene @ muchloveilly

sounds like you guys still have some fun in the midst of the busyness! :)


I need to do the same thing about my work week--take a moment to appreciate the good things! I can get too bogged down in the stress!


Wowza two $10 tips in a weekend? Nice job.


Good to hear that you had some positive and fun aspects of your working weekend. I had a good weekend, but it was my last weekend of holidays so that is sad too.

Glad you found a way to enjoy yourself, no matter what the weekend was like!


I've always thought it would be a neat experience being a waitress... just to try it. I bet you could tell some pretty entertaining stories! :)


Vanisha @ Vanishas Life In...Australia

$10 on a $21 bill is pretty great! I thought I was a good tipper but obviously I have something to learn!


10 beans on a $21 bill?! pretty fantastic! Glad you had a good working weekend all things considered.

Happy Jen at Anxious for Happiness

I just found out there is a Perkins about 30 minutes away. I am totally going to have to go. It sounds like there are many aspects of your job that you enjoy.
