The Unlimited Pasta Bowl
Another fun twist is when people have just started eating their first bowl and then ask for their second, eat the first one first. Many people also think that the word unlimited means they can get as much as they want to take home, I had such a table last night the lady was about half done with bowl #1 and she asked for bowl#2 and as soon as she got bowl #2 she asked for bowl#3 to which I replied you must finish a bowl to move onto the next one. She wasn't a happy camper her response was "but I thought it was an unlimited pasta bowl" to which I replied it is if you finish the preceeding bowl.
For the purpose of this story I generalized alot if you are one of the people who has come into Olive Garden and gotten the pasta bowl and then at the end of the night tipped your waiter well I salute you. If however you came in thinking I get to save a few bucks on everything from food to tip then well this entire blog entry is about you. Please try to remember that as servers we make minimum wage plus tips and tips is how we make the money with which we pay our bills.
