Serving Under the Spotlight



It was the first Friday of the month, night out with the girls. A ritual get-together that we had been doing for years. We would meet, have some drinks and enjoy a meal. Tonight we decided on the new bistro that had just opened downtown.

Everyone arrived and we were seated. Some of us were chatting, some looking around at the décor, when she came.

“And heeere we go,” my friend Irene hummed.

“What? I asked, feigning innocence.

“Hi, my name is Marcie. I’ll be your server for the evening.”

And our night out officially began…

Okay, I admit it. Some people review books, some movies. I review wait staff. Not professionally. Not like I have a column or anything. I’m just, a stickler for good service. I feel waiting tables is… an art form and that it should be done in a certain fashion. I mean am I wrong? Is there not technique to being a good server?
