So I just got done doing breakfast and lunch, and snack for 240 people. Call me a nice guy. The client calls me yesterday afternoon at 4:00 pm and asks if breakfast can be moved up from 8:30 am to 7:00am. And even though I could'nt get my service staff together till 7:30, I went early and did the early setup myself. Then the next "doozie'. Lunch is supposed to be from 12:00 to 2:00 pm, with the snack starting at 2:30 and left for the rest of the afternoon. My servers find out at 12:15 that someone told all the employees that lunch had to be over by 1:00 sharp, snack and all! So a manager from the company asks my servers if they could quickly add another service line! They told him no, but they were able to hold it together till I was able to send a few more people from the restaurant to bail them out. Everyone got fed and I admit the last 50 plates were a little rough. And on top of that, it decided to be busier than usual inhouse, probably due to the fact we were shorthanded. So off to sleep. Good nite.
