In the Running

One of the servers at the Bar had a death in the family this week. I offered to work for her on Saturday night, but she really needed Sunday for the wake. She spoke to the manager on duty about it and he approached me about the shift. I had plans Sunday, but after telling him this I felt bad. This girl lost a family member. How selfish am I? I can reschedule my plans, so I did.
As a result, my boss has promised me next Saturday's bartending shift, the head bartender has announced that she will back me for permanently covering the shift, and several regulars have made it clear to management they are very excited I will be bartending.
I think I'm getting closer.
On another note...I would love to be writing more but business has been so slow nothing is going on! I guess the economy is keeping out the odd ducks.

Wow, i'm glad i dont work in the only slow restaurant around. Everybody else's blog seem to be highlighting how well they are doing. Lucky them.....

I have to say that it is my fault that I am working the slow shifts. Before the economy took a fall lunch shifts at the Bar were the reliable shifts. Now that people seem to have cut down on the number of times they go out in a week, Saturday is the Bar's busy night. I think lunch shifts everywhere are suffering...
