Goodness! If you work in customer service on a daily basis you will be able to relate to this day. Many of you already know that I am a restaurant manager and deal with the public everyday. Today was one of those days that go from very sad, to very busy, to very slow, to pretty high throughout the day. Today I had the privilege to take care of the family of a fallen American soldier. He was in Afghanistan and the family had just found out that he had been killed. We were all tearing up at work while taking care of them just feeling for them and imagining the pain that they were going through followed by the pride that they had for their loved one. My heart goes out to that family.
Insert normal crazy restaurant business here! You people are nuts when it comes to food! Just kidding I love what I do and I love changing bad experiences to great ones just try me.
The high lite of the evening was actually a ten year wedding anniversary thought of by the HUSBAND. Ladies you will love this so listen carefully….Ok read closely sorry! The HUSBAND came in the night before and walked through the restaurant to pick out the right table. The HUSBAND planned all of his evening out with the manager that was there. Today is when things were to take place. Once again the HUSBAND came in early today and he left some items for his wife for the date later on in the night. So we put his plan into action….it’s always fun being part of this! He and his lovely wife came in and he asked for a certain table number. Our hostess escorted them to the table that had her favorite flowers, champagne glasses, and a love letter written on a linen napkin explaining how this night had come to be. The wife cried and cried tears of happiness and love for her man. Well it doesn’t stop there! They eat the meal and drink the champagne and then order dessert which is quickly delivered. It is a beautiful new diamond ring served with a side of rose petals and raspberry sauce. She cried again! Great job to the husband for a perfect evening!
As for me, just another day in the life of a restaurant manager.
