I try to see every table as a family from Michigan. Dad, mom, two kids. They don't have a lot of money, so they drive to Florida. Overnight so that mom and dad can switch off driving while the kids sleep. No stopover other than pee breaks and fast food They get a motel instead of a hotel, and whern they go to the park, they get a one day, one park pass for each of them. They come in, get a soda and a churrO, maybe a corn dog. Ihen they get tO my restaurant and sit dowrn Scaling and saving, doing without souvenirs that the kids want, they have already spent over one thousand dollars to sit at my table. So l try to give every table a one thousand dollar dining experience. Does it work every day for every table? No. Bit do I do my damndest to make their experience memorable and amazing? You're god damn right I do. l'll dance with the kids. I have a pocket of my apron designated for toys for fussy babies that I sanitize after every one. I have a million jokes you've never heard and a bunch you have. I care only as much as I'm paid, and I'm paid by YOU Add a comment <p>Wholesome levels through the roof via /r/wholesomememes <a href="https://ift.tt/2q4dtuC">https://ift.tt/2q4dtuC</a></p>
