Thank you!

And to make a short story long?
My wife wanted a Thanksgiving dinner for her B-day. (Aug 4th)
(She likes to cook - and DOES. IT. WELL.) We never go out to eat.....hers is better.
She went to our grocery store on her B-day......guess what? They only order 4 ficken turkeys per month during slow season. None. Zip. Zilch. Not one turkey available for purchase. Not one.

So she went yesterday and got one! Little 12 pounder. Baked it off. We ate like kings....all da fixins.

So tonight! Yes - Turkey sammich with the slice of tubed cranberry sauce.....lil mayo.....Oh s***, now I hungry!

Made and eaten. Chocolate cake and ice cream too.

BTW...My birthday is actually Aug. 2nd.

Um.........you didn't hear it from me, but she drinks wine from a box sometimes......and puts icecubes.

Here is something I noticed and I was wondering if anyone else did. Does it seem that service gets worse when a restaurant is barely busy? I have had so many experiences eating in a dead restaurant and yet we see our server like every 20 minutes. On the other hand, when you are somewhere that is crazy busy you always seem to get good service. Quite strange.

I agree this happens. As a server...waitress...whatever you'd like to call me...when we are SLOW we look for other things to do. I have been guilty of losing track of time when I only have 1 table. I head off and bleach coffee cups, help the Chef's with prep or help put inventory away.

Being slow can also be the worst service ever because you hang out at the table and take it to the other extreme. Spend too much time making sure everyone is happy.

When I am off-the-hook busy...I am always on the floor. Attention on demand even if your request isn't met instanteously.
