I try to be patient with them so they’re patient with me. I try to smile as a customer because
I try to smile as a server.

I think that it has taught me a good rule of thumb to never give someone a hard time if they’re at work. If the service is subpar they’re just as upset as you are. No one wants to do a bad job. That’s true not
just at restaurants. So don’t give someone crap while they’re working.

Groveland Tap, St. Paul

I have a positive and a negative. Positive: I’m a lot more patient. Negative: I’m a lot more picky. Like if they hold the glass by the rim. Yeah, I’m really picky about sanitation.

Common Roots

Melissa Peers and Sara Glense
Position: Shift lead/counter

Melissa: Depends on my mood. Sometimes I’m hypercritical.

Sara: Yeah, like at a restaurant the other day I had to fill my own coffee cup.

I tell people all the time if I’m out at a restaurant it’s because I’m working.
