"OK we have five credit cards and one gift certificate..."

I have a mini heart attack every time I load up a drink tray #serverproblems #bartenderproblems

There's always that one comedic genius at every table who says this…#serverproblems

Chicken scratch & abbreviations. The busier I am the worse it gets. #serverproblems #serverlife

Right when you have drinks up, food in the window, quadruple sat, & a line out the door with no host #serverproblems

20. And waking up, hours after your shift, in a cold sweat.
