…we are open 7days, 24 hours a day…
Go ahead, have fun exploring the beautiful world of fine and not so fine dining, all from a waiter’s standpoint, collected over many years on various continents in his diaries.
The COMPILATION OF SHORT STORIES and EXPERIENCES shared here are based on my daily diaries while working in hotels and restaurants (and as a waiter on the more or less clean floors in international establishments) since 1964.
If by chance you learn the one or the other trick of the waiter’s trade — from these pages, or links — so better.
Have a most beautiful day, every day.

Our Site-Menu is set up much like a Restaurant Menu, with lighter fare in the beginning, main courses under Entrees and sweet delights under Desserts.
Since October 2017 #Me Too as a two-word hash tag is used on social media to help demonstrate the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment.
All happened just about the time of Sepp’s Epic Perils & Pitfalls release.
The Sepp books have nothing to do with #Me Too, and everything. It’s the story of Sepp’s side to #Me Too.
In Sepp’s Epic Perils & Pitfalls we read about the dramatic happenings after WWII in Europe, when a great number of women were being assaulted and abused, Sepp’s mother’s experiences of being raped included.
Sepp grows up in the American Zone, and witnesses that a candy bar or a pack of cigarette is all that’s needed, to bed one of the desperate German Frauleins.
Sepp starts his apprenticeship as a waiter far away from home, in a high-class restaurant in an upper class neighborhood. Living happily in the restaurant’s attic, Sepp gets introduced to manhood by a woman who greatly enjoys the company of men. Sepp doesn’t complain but accepts this adventure as a standard behavior when it comes to sexual relationships between men and women. And that’s just the beginning.
