This weekend, my wife and I headed out to one of our favorite restaurants. I have made reference to the location in previous post, and I like to refer to the area as prepville. I wore a typical WASPy blazer, and I added a little color with my kelly green polka dot bow tie. My wife wore a seersucker dress and pearls. She has been shy of late, and she refuses to let me post pictures of her.
Anyway, after arriving to dinner, a young kid (22 or 23) working as a waiter came over to our table. He informed me that he had read a lot about me, and he was fascinated with my business. I thanked him, and wished a good evening. Moments later, he reappeared and he began to ask me if I was hiring any new employees. I kindly gave him my card, and told him to send me a resume. At this point, I am a little annoyed, but I admired his ambition. About ten minutes later, he reappeared and began to inform me about his background. This activity persisted, and it occurred at least three more times. The kid just did not get it! My wife told me to be nice, and I refrained from rude comment. I might consider giving him a job, but he did not help his situation by continuing to bother me at dinner. Nobody, wants to be pestered by the staff at a restaurant. Oh well, maybe he will learn. Fortunately, for him, I am tender hearted by nature (even though I don't let it show always).
