So today I decided that on top of my advertising major, I am now going to minor in graphic design. I love advertising and working with companies on the logistical side of it, but I am way more interested in the creative side to advertising. I love the idea of creating print ads or commercials and seeing them produced. So that gives me another 52 credits to take. But I am so excited to get into them :)
Here are a few things you should know. I thought this was funny.
1. A host’s least favorite word is booth. Never ever ask for a booth, especially after they’ve taken you to a table. It’s just rude.
2. Restaurants put a lot of time and effort into making your night out pleasant. So just sit back and RELAX.
3. Large parties are extremely inconvenient. You take up tons of space, require more than one server, and are impossible to keep track of. Be patient.
4. Don’t be embarrassed by your kids. We symphasize and aren’t mad when they goof around.
5. Be respectful. We are taking time out of our day or night to serve you. Appreciate it.
6. Only complain if it’s truly necessary. We will do everything in our power to make it better, but we can tell when you’re lying.
7. When going out to eat on holidays, the rudest thing you can do is get mad at us. for any reason. We are working instead of spending time with our families. Understand and acknowledge that.
8. We LOVE when you are friendly. Start up a conversation or be friendly when we try to start one with you. Don’t make things awkward.
9. Ordering to-go from a restaurant instead of sitting down to eat does not mean you don’t have to tip. The same effort is put into making your food. A few extra dollars won’t kill you.
10. Finally, the smallest things are the ones that matter most. Compliments on service or our food does count for something and makes us happy. A simple smile on the way out makes our job more enjoyable. Take your time to be courteous.
What do you do when friends you knew everything about become strangers you barely recognize? What do you do when people you thought cared about you turn their backs. I’ve come to learn that life is about change. People are given the freedom to fly in whatever direction pleases them. I myself am learning to fly. But why does the freedom to fly cause people to turn away from others who love them? Change doesn’t mean letting go of your past. It means using your past to construct your present and your future. The people in your life are there for a specific reason. There are some who will come in and leave a small footprint in your life. And others will leave a trail, no matter if you turn your back or not. They will always be there. So why leave them behind? They are the people you want to keep in your life forever…
