Tomorrow is my birthday, but as I have Wednesdays off I celebrated my Hooters birthday today. Basically it was the same as any other day at work, but I got to wear a sash and a crown. While that might seem like a pretty small thing, it turned out to be anything but. That sash and crown were total money makers. Not only did only two tables leave me under 20%, but I even got a few dollars here and there from other tables. I ended up making a cool 34% (not counting the $20 Barnes and Noble giftcard one regular left me)
Now before you go and say that isn't fair, I think it's more than fine to have at least one day a year when you're guaranteed to have a good tip day. And dammit that day should be your freaking birthday. I suggest everyone leave their shame at home and whore themselves out on their special day with a crown and sash.
In addition to becoming rich, my manager made me the most beautiful cupcakes. This girl seriously hasn't had a birthday cake in probably five years and today I got these; I was effing stoked. Check out these beauties!
Yup, that's a guitar made out of fondant. Did I also mention they were filled with Almond Joy frosting? Yes, such a thing actually exists.
Being old is fun!
