Goo Goo Validation
Celebrities can be both a pain and interesting at the same time.
One day, lead singer of the Goo Goo Dolls, John Rzeznik, was sitting in my section. He was pretty normal, (for a rocker,) but then he and his friend ask for the bill, I processed their payment, and then I went to validate he and his friends' parking tickets. I stamped both of their tickets, then...
"Oh, you don't need to stamp my parking ticket. I'm staying in the hotel." John said.
"Sorry about that." I replied. "Just wanted to make sure everybody gets validated."
"How about stamping my hand." He asked with a straight face.
"Yeah." Then he stuck his hand out for me to stamp.
"Why?" I didn't even hide the "are you fucking kidding me look" on my face.
"Because it's pretty. And I like stamps." He admitted.
So I stamped his hand with a red star.
"There you go. And your hand will get five dollars off wherever you go."
Until next time... Server's don't pay their rent with compliments.
"Bitter. Party of one? Your table is ready."
