Unless, of course, you are one of my customers. Then excitement must ooze out of every orifice on my body, and burst through my stomach like “Alien” when talking about the chicken on the menu. Does everybody realize that chicken is on the majority of every restaurant in the world?
Here’s one of my many memorable conversations from a guest the other night.
Customer: “Tell me about the chicken,”
Me: “It’s a pan-roasted half-chicken, that’s semi-boneless, served with yada-yada-yada.”
Customer: (Blank stare.)
Me: (Better blank stare.)
Customer: “You don’t seem that excited,” he finally said.
Me: “Well, I don’t have enough room here to do any backflips.”
Customer: (Another blank stare)... then, “So you don’t like the chicken?”
Me: (Best blank stare.) The only chicken I would be excited about would be at Los Pollos Hermanos. But I finally said, “THE CHICKEN IS AAAAAMAZING!… TA DAH!” (Back flip.)
Suck it chicken!
Until next time... Server's don't pay their rent with compliments.
