Go Figure

Hi there. I have been busy so not much posting or visiting for that matter lately. I am sorry for that. But here is some news for you all. I was beginning to think no one was going to call back so I decided to revoke my two week notice at McD's with the agreement of everyother weekend off.

Well guess what happened before I went to work last night. I got a call from one of the jobs I was looking at. Not the one I wanted but its better than McD's. I will be working at a Truck Stop called Country Express if she decides I am there kind of material I guess you might put it.

So lets hope no more dress pants for me and no more red ugly shirts. Did anyone know waitresses only get 2.33 an hour plus tips here. I am not sure if its more anywhere else. What am I going to do?? LOL... Yikes am I in a spot no one wants to be in. I was getting nervous about no one calling back and now some one has. I just wonder if by chance some one else will call back also.

I am so tired today. I worked from 10-5 last night and was up at 6:45 to take Jeff to work and then back up at 12:45 to get up and get dressed and get the girls somethign to eat before my interview at 2.

I also got another A in my school work last night. I took another test before going to work last night. I hadnt touched my books in two weeks or so and reread what I needed to in the last two nights and then took the test. I am hoping that I can find something soon in my field. I just dont know where to look there really. I am getting one of my last books here in seven to ten days. My last module as they call them.

I am thinking about continuing my education through the Stratford Career Institute though with something with my Medical Office Assistant. Either a business management or something else that would work nicely there. Anyway I need to go find something to eat and then I am off to the Y with the girls for there weekly events. Talk to you all soon. N..

Update... I have some news for you all.I know how much I have been bitching about McD's but you know what I got a perfect review last night and a 35 cent raise.. I am happy I guess and the waitressing job never called back. I am glad to have a job I guess. So I am going to stick it out for a while longer at McD's but I have a plan there. I have talked to my head boss and we have it every other weekend off and a flat 9 PM to 5 AM instead of this bouncing crap. Because if R doesnt have a dish washer I dont want to be stuck having to stay like last night two hours past when I was suppose to leave. I was so tired last night I barely knew my name when I left.

Hopefully, you get decent tips at that place! I know minimum wage for servers is less than for anyone else but that sounds really low!

Keep looking...

That pay isn't even MINIMUM WAGE!!! How do they get away with that? I know it is tough out there, my dear...And I hope whatever this new job is will be GOOD and that you are 'their kind of people'. But, I athink maybe you shold keeplooking, too....
CONGRARS on yoyr "A"! That's great!

Tweetey - it's normal to have that kind of hourly wage as a waitress. I've done it many times. That's why I never stiff a waitress-their tips is what they live on. I love waitressing - it's hard work but it's cash in your pocket every day. I've made pretty decent money waitressing. It's something that you can always fall back on.

Good luck!

Advice from a retired truck driver: The way to make tips waiting on truck drivers is,-Be prompt, smile a lot and always keep their coffee cups filled. And, remember, truck drivers are always tired and sleepy.
(and, whatever you do, never feed the juke box. Most tired truck drivers just want quiet) Good luck.

Wow, I thought the federal minimum wage for tipped employees was up to 4.25. When I was a waitress it was 3.09.

Vancouver Voyeur said...

Congrats on the call back. I would talk to the other waitresses before taking the job though. That is a server's minimum wage and it's supposed to be because you'll make up the difference to the regular minimum wage in tips. But you don't always make it up and in some places, you never do. So check to see what the tips are like before you take it. Good luck! Oh and way to go with that "A."

Wow Tweetey,
You are amazing.
Waitressing is the one of the hardest jobs in the world and sometimes under appreciated....just like being a mother sometimes...
You will be great.
love J.
