RULES I ADHERE TO AS A WAITER
As you know there are many definitions for the word waiter. For me it’s a profession, a livelihood and a way to pay my bills while entertaining myself in a nice surrounding night after night. However I have a handful of rules by which I stick:

RULE ONE

I show up for work! On time and dressed according to my job.

RULE TWO

I make sure that I get paid, how little the wages might be, I do not work for free.

RULE THREE

As I have something to sell to sell and that’s my job and that’s my job (selling). I don’t give it away but sell as much as I possible can.

RULE FOUR

As I work for somebody else I make sure that my working in “the house” is profitable for the house.

RULE FIVE

I keep a close look at my daily average tip-income, if it’s lower than the established average I do take a good look at myself, my attitude and my ability to do my job right.
