Interesting to see yourself as a customer from a waiter's perspective.

Enjoyable read. ( )

adult nonfiction. Sick of corruption, the author quits seminary school to join the healthcare industry, but after struggling under similar circumstances, he decides to take a job as a waiter until he figures out what he wants to do next. One year turns into 7 years, and after successfully blogging about his experiences he successfully transitions into a writer. Loads of insight about the waiting profession as well as about life itself and the personal choices we all make. ( )

A waiter's look at life as a server in upscale New York restaurants. Fast-paced, some language, but overall a very enjoyable read. Learn why you should avoid restaurants on a holiday, read some of the sad stories of customers (who knew the waiters really noticed us?); feel elated when he gets back at rude ones. Based on the blog he began while waiting tables. A very well-written, witty tale that sucks in the reader and makes you sorry when the story ends. (And yes, he's at work on a sequel.)

I just finished this book because I thought it would be a funny read. It is, particularly to one who has actually waited tables. As one who hasn't, I thought he came off as an arrogant, whiny person. I want to say POS, which doesn't mean "point of sale", but he probably isn't one. The book was very quick and to his point. ( )

It's a little preachy and more of a memoir than "Confessions of..." but it's a good look into being a waiter and not being a terrible customer.
