Here's a tip: this job is really hard.

Everyone should have to work in a restaurant at some point if they want to be a decent person (Cheesecake Factory alumna right here). If you disagree a quick Google search will show 80 million results confirming this concept. The main reason for this is so that, as a restaurant patron, you learn just how stupidly hard waiting tables can be, and learn compassion for the person you have asked to bring you every sauce on the side.
