Just a Teensy Little Update

OK, so I got a call from my boss this afternoon. I was afraid this was coming. I had a feeling that even though I did what I was supposed to do, there would be some repercussions. See, I've never done that before. So when she called today I was a little nervous. The first thing she said was, "what the hell went on here last night?"
Aw crap.
Then she tells me that she got a complaint from one of our regular customers. That he had been there with his wife and two kids; it was his anniversary. He told her he wasn't able to get any service from his waitress and that she and the manager were in the corner laughing it up.

AND THAT THE DARK-HAIRED GIRL WAS THE ONLY ONE WORKING!

She, of course, was all fired up because the guy told her that if he hadn't been there before he probably wouldn't come back. These are tough times we're living in here. She can't afford to be losing customers and neither can the servers! I'm so glad I did the right thing last night. I don't get involved in the drama. I just come to work, do my job, make people laugh, and have a good time. I love what I do. And I love it when I get noticed for doing a good job at it.
