It's 4:33 AM and I'm having trouble sleeping and you know what suddenly popped into my head?
VERY NICE LADY: I'm sorry, do you have any straws in your apron pocket?I forgot her straw. And she never asked again.
ME: I'm sorry, I don't. But I can get one for you.
VERY NICE LADY: Thanks so much!
They tipped very well, so I can only assume that my senior moment did not affect their overall experience. But I still feel bad because they were so nice. But why does this happen??? It's extremely irritating. I'm trying to go to bed. I'm trying to accomplish other things with my life. Why must my nighttime thoughts be tortured by server related bullshit?
But do you really need a straw for your water? Some people get really offended that we don't automatically bring them to the table. Maybe I should just be like Steve Martin and be, um, proactive.
