Anal-Retentive Heaven

I started training this morning to take over the books/reservations at the restaurant. It's seriously my wet dream. Different time slots for different tables - move this table here to open up this table for a bigger party - blah blah blah. Emailing guests and organizing everything.

I will be working three days per week during the day organizing the reservations (we worked for 30 minutes today on one day of reservations because of a mix up with tables). I'll be handling all of the large parties from start to finish (including signing contracts and such), and I'll be ordering supplies for our celebration packages, etc etc. It's actually a lot of work - I was thinking maybe 2 hours a week, but it's more like 12. Fine by me. Best of all, I can bring Zack in with me and I'm only going to be serving 2 nights a week.

They are still going to train me to manage as well, but only night managing, which is great! I don't want to be in there all day long anyway. I'm not sure when that will happen, but it's fine with me - I'm excited about my new schedule and new duties. I think I'm tailor-made for this kinda crap that no one else wants to do.

I'm cracking up - I will have business cards that say "Reservation Specialist" bah hahaha - glorified receptionist position that is. I don't care, though, it's a huge help to the restaurant and it gets me off the floor. Ain't gonna turn my nose up at that!

Congrats! I used to live in MD, I wonder if I've ever been in your restaurant.

Some day I will call you, the reservation specialist, to book a table for two on your day off.

We'll get tipsy and eat great food. I promise.

Cath, that's the kind of stuff I would have loved doing as well. I did all the scheduling and I always looked forward to schedule time. We didn't take rezzies, but if we did, i would have been all over that, too!
