Small Talk

“When I was 15 I started working as a busser in an Olive Garden and worked my way to server. When I watched the bartenders, I thought it was the coolest job in the restaurant, making drinks and schmoozing with people.”

“When I turned 21, I told the manager I wanted to be a bartender. He said, if I was the best salesman in the restaurant, he would make me a bartender.”

“I became the best salesman in the restaurant, and got the job as a bartender. I was really good at the upsell.”

Unclear what to make of this, coming from a Doctor while performing a, errrr, uh, sensitive operation. 6 years in an Olive Garden? Maybe I should ask to see his diploma?

Kidding, I was probably working in a Brat und Brau when I was 21, setting up the salad bar, filling condiments, and making popcorn.

This guy was already a bartender. I don’t really understand it, but I admire people with drive. That’s probably why he is a Doctor now and I just got around to being a bartender a few years ago.
