That's really nerve-wracking.
don't let it get in the back of your mind. Maybe you were shook up by that incident and you've been on edge with customers and you're not realizing it?


*hugs*


You'll get through this!

You have a right to know what the actual complaints were. Ask and use it as constructive criticism; try not to be defensive. (((HUGS)))

One was this table of 9. I forgot to put in one of the orders and his came in a bit later. Ughhh. Yes, my mistake. They told the manager I was "terrible".

Another was this family that said I didn't bring them drinks. Seriously, I specifically remember bringing them at least six refills of their drinks because I was a little concerned about them drinking so much.

I'm really physically sick. I just feel terrible.

I had three tables specifically tell me how great I was on Friday night, but it's like they don't count. I'm doing my best. My tips were GREAT Friday night, but I guess that doesn't matter. I thought I was doing a good job. I was trying so hard.

Do you think I have some kind of a learning disability where I can't hold down a job?

I really thought I was doing a good job. I feel like garbage. I really do. I am broke, too. This sucks. This really sucks.

I eat fast food more often than I should simply for the lack of time. Well, that, and I live alone so cooking for one can be hard (especially since I'm funny about leftovers). Oh, and I tend to go out with friends a lot right after work. Sunday seems to be the only day I have time

Nevertheless, I am about to do something that I cant believe is coming from me. I am going to prepare Freezer to Crockpot meals. aargh. I know they are convenient, but I could never get over the way everything just seems so mushy.

i think it's time for us to start complaining to those "Powers That Be" en masse.

at the top of our screens is a button for Texture Media - the new corporate masters here.

they have a Contact Us section in there - and i am going to tell them exactly what i think about these INSULTING "Trending Topics" - some of which relate to years-old news items.

seriously????

CIBC The drinks issue should be easy to prove. I assume they were alcohol since you were concerned about how much they drank. It should be in the register/computer what time/how many drinks were served by what server.

I'm just SO upset. I'm a nervous wreck 24/7. Probably why I'm making mistakes. I always feel sick. Maybe I need meds.

That's what sucks people only talk to the manager for problems, never if it was good.

Idk what to tell you but just try not to let it get you down, so it doesn't show at work.

Question on scallion pancakes:

This looks fabulous! I hope I won’t offend any purists out there, but my time is limited and I was wondering if this could be done successfully with a pancake mix??
I can't.

CIBC, #1. If you can get on stage and preform for audiences, you can do anything. #2. You have not been fired. Try to calm your nerves, ask for constructive criticism, watch people who have been serving for awhile, and do your absolute best.
#3. Break a leg I hope things work out.

I would be happy if most the land in my town were not owned by a shady criminal/slum lord. He is the one who makes choices about what is built.

It's such a beautiful day. I hope to get out this week and take pictures. The fall foliage is running a little behind and has not peaked, just yet.

This is what I wrote to Texture Media, Inc.

Quote:
I am writing in regard to the Trending Topics links on the bottom of the pages of the CurlTalk forums. Not only are the topics hardly trending (some link to articles that are months or even years old), but most of the articles are ridiculous and insulting. I have no interest in injecting my breasts with Botox, seeing if Faith Hill is ugly without her makeup, or checking out someone's panty lines for giggles. These topics are offensive and derogatory to the very women who are the target audience for your website. The entire purpose behind the Naturally Curly brand is to embrace your unique attributes, not mock the differences in others or hide what makes you special. I am very disappointed in the trend of the advertising of this website of late, and the Trending Topics is the straw that broke the camel's back for me.

I sincerely hope that you re-evaluate how you're alienating your audience.

CIBC, that is some excellent advice from Fifi. Take some deep breaths and do try to calm your nerves. We're all pulling for you - you'll get through this. And please do NOT talk to your mother or sister, only to people who support you. ((((Hugs))))

I had to turn off Autocorrect on my phone and tablet. It was taking way too much time making corrections to the Autocorrect.

I'm going to have to turn mine off. Since the latest update it is growing in some absurd words and phrases. I typed electric and it changed it to head blanket. What?
