"Shared joy is double joy. Shared sorrow is half sorrow." Got this beautiful piece by the hilarious and beautiful killer babe, @c.reneeallday at @reddaggertattoo yesterday. The cost went directly to families effected by hurricane Harvey. That was one of the best times I've ever had at a shop, and this tattoo completely sums up the aching I have in my heart for my hometown, my new home in the city, and all my friends and family who have to now start their lives over. We are in this time of trial together - trust God, He loves you and will provide for you. #hurricaneharvey#harveyrelief#houstontattoo#killerbabeclub#jcluforever
This evening during dinner service I was checking-in guests at the host stand.
Simultaneously, a man on the wait list became argumentative towards my host-mate because of a misunderstanding about his potential table.
He was rude and belligerent, but she's tough and experienced, so I knew she could handle it.
I continued checking guests in, but then looked over to see this grown man get in my partner's face and begin yelling at the top of his lungs, and waving his finger in her face.
This is a no-no.
I pardoned myself from checking in a guest and stepped in front of her, looked him in the eyes and told him to calm down.
He told me he wasn't talking to me, and tried to move aside to get in her face once more, but I stepped in front of him again. Our manager then walked over and told him exactly what my partner had been attempting to tell him, and he calmed down.
This all happened while the rest of his party-of-four watched in silence.
Lessons to be learned: - Remember that people in the service industry are just that; people. We have friends and family and go home at night just like you. We should be treated with just as much respect as you think you deserve.
- Upset with your service? Speak to someone, but don't behave like eating pizza at Coltivare is the most important life decision you will ever make. It's pizza and pasta. Ours is the bomb, but maintain level headedness. - If your friend is acting like a literal anus, intervene. Silence does not equal neutrality.
- Never ever get in my friend's face. I will drop you. Ever seen a 5 foot nerd-punk destroy a 50 year old man-child? I would consider job termination an honor if it meant I got to punch you in the face, and kick you in your (very obviously small) man parts.
