Today while I was in the shower, my phone rang. I saw the first 6 digits of the phone number while I glanced out from behind the shower curtain. I recognized it immediately as the same 6 digits of the restaurant which I had my second interview at on Friday. I had to make a decision, get out of the shower and answer it, or wait for a voicemail. I always like to answer calls like this right away since I hate playing phone tag, but I decided that it was a bad idea to get out of the shower.
So half an hour later, I sat down and returned the general manager’s call. He offered me a waitress position, which I gladly accepted. I start orientation on Friday, but I won’t be leaving Tap House for about two weeks.
Having this phone call come only days after I had reached a new level of frustration at Tap House on Sunday is a huge relief. I was furious Sunday, and the fact I didn’t make any money was only icing on the cake. I was able to stay at Tap House despite slow days for so long because I love most of the people who work there. I was able to work 7 days a week because Tap House was a good social outlet for me. Unfortunately, there has been a shift in attitude there, and I haven’t been happy for a long time. So, it was time to move on and that is what I’m doing.
I really hope I like it at the new restaurant, and I hope I make lots of money so I don’t have to work 7 days a week.
