Work sucked tonight. I repeat. Work sucked tonight. I made less money tonight than I have since I started working there. I’d love to say I sold less but that’s not the case. The foreigners were out in force tonight. It got so bad that I kept my receipts so I could share the “good” news with you.
Here are some of my favorite tips tonight.

Total Tip Out Expected to Bartenders, Busser and Food runner on $444.55: $22.22
So to wait on these 10 tables it actually cost me $2.28.
The total amount I should have made after tip out should have been somewhere between the amounts: $44.46 and $66.69 if everyone had left between 18% and 20%.
The actual percentage I made before tipout: .045 percent. There seems to be a shortage if you ask me.
It also didn’t help that most of the tables I waited on tonight didn’t seem to be eating. Two beers and a plate of nachos runs about $22.00. It takes a lot of these tables if you are going to make a living. Luckily, most of the tables I waited on early in the evening were very generous. Their 20-40 percent tips helped to make up some of the difference. Unfortunately, because we were slow there weren’t enough of these tables to make it a profitable evening.
It’s a good thing rent is due this week, otherwise I don’t know what I would do with all of my riches.
