This Might be Something Y'all Might Want to Look Into
     This is an email I received today. You might have already seen this mentioned on some of the other restaurant-centric internet columns (OK, server blogs) but in case you haven't, here it is. And as a special added bonus, exclusively for readers of These American Servers™, tell 'em Joe Sixtop sent ya and they'll look at you like you're absolutely fucking crazy. Good luck!


Do you OWN or WORK in a RESTAURANT fraught with WORKPLACE DRAMA?
 Is your CHEF HOT-HEADED, OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE, or of the belief he/she is GOD"S GIFT TO FOOD? Do you have a BICKERING WAITSTAFF?  Are they constantly ARGUING about shifts, days off, and who gets the best tables? Do the FRONT OF THE HOUSE and BACK OF THE HOUSE have so many COMMUNICATION ISSUES it’s amazing anything comes out right at all? Did the BARTENDER and a SERVER break-up and now they REFUSE to speak to each other - even during the Friday night dinner rush?!  If you own or work in a restaurant where staff issues are threatening to spill out into the dining room, a new show from a MAJOR CABLE NETWORK wants to help.   Our experts are ready to take on any issue, from bad communication, jealousy, and fragile egos to the poor multi-tasker who slows everyone down and the line cook who loses his temper over every single substitution. They can take the heat in and out of the kitchen, and they’re eager to test and teach your staff to put their differences aside, respect one another, and work together to make your restaurant the very model of teamwork and efficiency. The show will be EDGY, EMOTIONAL, and HILARIOUS as people confront their issues big and small, and the audience at home will have their eyes opened to all that the people who make and serve their food deal with on top of keeping their fickle customers happy. Please email with your NAME, CONTACT INFO, a recent PHOTO and some information about where you work and what kinds of workplace drama you are dealing with.
