The week is finally over. Its weird, b/c in a sense it feels like it went so quickly, and at the same time, the past two days could not have gone quickly enough. I worked almost 18 hours in the past two days, so that could have something to do with it. Tonight I had my last follow, although I don't think I followed Linda for a single second. Truth be told, I pretty much ran her section most of the night. I don't know why exactly, perhaps because she got a little flustered, but I don't like running my ass off for no money. After waiting on all of her tables, she got all the tips. I know this is how training goes, and I'd be lying if I said that I didn't feel totally confident by now, but I'm also not the average trainee. Most trainees haven't worked at this exact restaurant for 9 months, so while I know my way around, I know all the kitchen guys, the bartenders and managers, someone who didn't have that experience might be a little uneasy running a 4 table section on a Friday night with little to no assistance from their trainer on only their 4th shift working there. For me, I think it was just good practice, although I wouldn't have minded good practice along with a little $$$. Anyway, after the longest shift ever tonight, I'm pretty damn tired, so I'm going to SLEEP.
