    Done that. The first time I had the “title”, “Rolls and Relish Boy”, a job that probably doesn’t exist anymore. It was descriptive of what I did. Pass rolls and relishes to a house that maxed out at 300.. And you had to hit every table in the 1 1/2 hour dinner sitting. Yes you did have to hustle. Also was a waiter which was much less stressful.

    There’s a saying that bears repeating: “If you are nice to your family and nice to your friends but you are not nice to the waitress, you are not a nice person.”

    I waited tables from age 14-20. I am 51 now, and I can tell he character of a person based on how they behave to food service staff. There are people I will not associate with: cheap tippers, rude people, the entitled. If you want to know the character of someone, take them to a restaurant. That is really all the information you need.

    ditto to Tiffini and Erica. I tried waitressing at a pub in Atlanta. Lasted less than a week. Awful.
