Another Bad Dream

It is my first day working at a new Bennigan's. I am nervous, but I feel like I have a pretty good grasp on the menu. When I get there, I discover that they have given me a good section - the smoking section. I try to figure out where exactly the smoking section is, since the layout of the restaurant is slightly different from that of the Saginaw Bennigan's. Strangely, the "host stand" is just an enormous piece of color-coded Plexiglass on the floor. To my surprise, I see that some of my tables have already been seated. I go into my section and start taking drink orders, but everyone is already ready to order, and then the rest of my tables start getting seated. I am getting farther and farther behind. What's more, people are ordering crazy things that weren't on the menu the last time I worked at Bennigan's, and it's noisy and I can't hear and people are starting to get really pissed.

Being scarred by Bennigan's so much that I still dream about it over three years since I last worked there - C-

Sorry to hear about that dream! I frequently dream about having to waitress and I can't remember things and forget about whole tables and so on. I've never been a waitress in my life, so I'm not sure why I have these nightmares. I'm with you though, they suck.

Paul, you were in the dream, standing over that two-dimensional host stand.

I loved when you worked at Bennigans though. I was just an excuse to buy large amounts of death by chocolate

Hey Amanda. Sorry to hear about the bad dream!! I have had a few of those myself. AHHHH! I am here in Livonia. My hunny went to Eastern. I took them into consideration when signing up for a nursing program. They dont have as long of a wait there as some schools which is nice. Well, I hope your dreams get better. Paul took my Slainte, that is what I wanted to say. Take care. Sunshine
