Saturday November 7th:
So I decide I should go and do the trial at Blackbird Cafe, just to be sure, and if nothing else to gain more experience. I figure, even if I drop and entire platter of food, it doesn’t matter because I already have a job! (Not that I am planning on it but we’ll see). I arrive at 7 for my shift, and it seems things are really unorganized. I am given a shirt to wear that is about 3 sizes to big, and then a quick tour of the place and then I am left to fend for myself. Here I am trialing to be a food runner, and already I like the idea of being a hostess better. Not to mention that this place is a lot slower so there is lots of time when I am doing nothing but trying my best to look busy. The atmosphere is a lot more relaxed here, and I actually have time to chit chat with people, but my three hour shift drags by forever. By the time it is over at 10 pm I am pretty sure this is not for me. I end up getting offered the job, but the pay is less, and I would have fewer hours so I turn it down. Good experience for food running, and I didn’t even drop anything after all. I’m all set for I’m Angus.
