ADVENTURES IN BUSSING PART 2
Ok, so story time about Saturday.
It was our “first day”, sort of. People were given special invitations to come to out preview opening, so things weren’t really all that busy. Still, it was practically a full service, and it was pretty fun.
UP UNTIL THIS HAPPENED.
Me and the other two bussers were kind of disorganized, so our manager assigned us all to duties to keep us busy and not frazzled. Carlos and Saulo were the main bussers, while I was told to stay in the back of the house, preparing the next bus-trays, keeping the kitchen clean and safe, and rolling new silverware. I didn’t mind at all.
While I’m standing at the bussing station, rolling silverware, Justin, one of the servers, comes up next to me and takes one of the busser-trays I had already set up for Saulo or Carlos to take. Before I could say anything, he already rushed out in a hurry, so I went back to rolling silverware.
Then, One of the SERVER trainers (not my Bussing Trainer, who was taking a toilet break) comes up to me, and tells me this “Oh, Look. A Server just had to buss a table. Now wasn’t that nice of him to do your job for you?”
Nothing gets me angrier than sarcasm. Yes, I get it, It’s not the server’s job to always tell me when a table needs to be bussed. But if I’m standing right there, with a buss-tray ready to go, YOU CAN JUST SAY “Hey, Table 45 needs a buss real quick.” And I’ll go do it! You don’t need to get all passive aggressive about it and make me look bad! I’m there to buss tables, if I don’t know what’s going on, just tell me and I’ll get right on it!
SIGH. I’ve only been working there one day and I’m already so exhausted… So happy I don’t have to go back to work until Wednesday…
