A Tough Job

A Tough Job

Eating Through Roseville / S. Carter

It takes a lot of patience to work in the service industry. Not everyone is cut out to serve others for several hours. David Fabila had no choice but to work at House of Oliver. This was his second job, and he needed the money to support his family. During the day, he worked at a casino resort as a bar porter. But in all of his years as a server, he could have never foreseen or expected the situation he was now facing.

It’s not uncommon for servers to receive great tips, average tips, or in some instance, some very bad tips. But most restaurant patrons don’t realize that these servers depend on these tips in order to pay their rent, their utilities, and to buy food for themselves and their family. But Steffen Berr had something planned when he chose to sit in David’s area.

With each passing second, the night became more and more hectic. David was so busy that he sometimes wondered if he had gotten everyone’s orders correct. But he didn’t know that the mysterious stranger was watching everything he was doing. Berr ate his meal and waited patiently for David to walk up to him.

Berr asked for the check. David immediately walked over and gave it to him. Then, he went to serve a table full of guests who needed his services. But David was mindful that he had to close the stranger’s bill. After wrapping up with the other patrons, he headed back.

David returned to the stranger’s table to pick up the check with the money, but Berr was gone. David assumed that he wrote a check or left the exact change in cash. Most people asked to pay with a credit card or waited for their change, but that didn’t always happen. Then David took a look at the bill and was stunned.
