Not everyone is cut out to be a waiter/waitress

Actually, not everyone is cut out to be a manager of those people.

We stopped by a chain restaurant.

Very busy, and we felt the food was also slow getting out...for everyone.

WE waited 45 minutes.

A dad with his 4 boys sat next to us.

After about 30 minutes the youngest about 2 was getting hungry and bored.

He started acting out.

Their waitress walked by several times.

So did the manager.

My waitress cam by and I told her to tell the server to give the kids some rolls or crackers, that will hole their attention for a while.

A few minutes later the server did just that.

I got very quiet. 

I was surprised that the server nor the manager had enough fore-thought to do this.

I have been in many restaurants where young kids bot bored or hungry.  The server would come by with some crackers or a roll and the kids were then occupied.

It isn't rocket science, and it will keep the patrons happy.

2 of 3 tables that had asked to move actually walked out.  They lost more than the price of a roll.

 

As for Real Estate, I always had some non-sweet treat for kids that came with parents...saved a lot of time and my client stayed with me.
