Pass the salt please....
Considering how long I've been in food service, you'd think nothing could surprise me anymore!
And we'd all be wrong! :) This little happening amused me, so it's going to be the first post on the new blog!
My restaurant has a full salad bar and of course that's one of the main attractions. I had the section next to it Friday night, and I saw a guest leave the bar with a salad and go over to one of my tables (nope, I was NOT their server), climb over the booth, grabbed the salt shaker and salted their salad.
Always willing to help, I went over and apologized and asked him if I needed to bring a salt and pepper shaker to THEIR table...since obviously they seemed to be missing...why else would someone go to all that trouble?
They looked at me like I was the crazy one, and said.....
"I'm using yours because there's no salt on the SALAD BAR!!"
There was absolutely nothing to say to that! Seldom am I speechless. LOL
