1Being a waitress is an often underrated job. 2 A waitress needs the tact of a diplomat, she must be organized as a business executive, and the ability of an acrobat. 3Serving as the link between customers and kitchen, the most demanding diners must be satisfied, and the often temperamental kitchen help must be kept tames. 4 Bothe groups tend to blame the waitress whenever anything goes wrong. 5 Somehow, she is held responsible by the customer for any delay (even if it’s the kitchens fault), for an overcooked steak, or for an unavailable dessert. 6 While the kitchen utomaticallyblames her for the diners who change their orders or return those burned steaks. 7 In addition she must simultaneously keep straight who ordered what at each table, who is yelling for the check, and whether the new arrivals want cocktails or not. 8 She must be sure empty tables are cleared, everyone has refills of coffee, and no one is scawling because a request for more rolls are going unheard. 9 Finally, the waitress must travel a hazardous route between the busy kitchen and the crowded dining room, she has to dodge a diners leg in the aisle or a swinging kitchen door. 10 And you must do this while balancing a tray heaped with steaming platters. 11 The hardest task of the waitress, though, is trying to maintain a decent imitation of a smile on her face—most of the time.
