10 Habits You Can’t Break From Working in Hospitality So Long
- You’re eating dinner with your family at a restaurant and you’re hurrying them to finish eating because the restaurant has a waiting list and you feel you need to give up your table to the waiting guests
- You answer your cell phone saying, Thank you for calling... how can I help you
- While the hostess is taking you to your table, you’re counting how many light bulbs are out in the dining room.
- As your entering the hotel or restaurant, you hold the door for everyone to walk in before you enter
- Can’t help turning the china over to see who makes it.
- You start pre-bussing your own table as you finish eating and keep watching the flow in the dining room.
- When looking at the menu, you automatically find the spelling errors,
- You see the restaurant is busy and struggling and are restraining yourself from jumping in to help and it’s making you crazy
- You can’t help yourself from quizzing the server on the menu and specials just to make sure they know
- You cringe when the server or runner brings food to your table and starts auctioning the food... who had the ribeye?
