Waiting The True Confessions of a Waitress

Ten irreverent Ginsberg's stories truly capture the spirit of the universal things she's learned about human nature interpersonal relationships the frightening things that go on in the kitchen romantic hopes dashed and rebuilt and all of the frustrating and funny moments in this life Waiting is for everyone who has had to wait for their life to begin only to realize suddenly that they're living. My true philistinism is revealed when I am forced to admit that I enjoyed this book far than the high culture book of the same name by Ha Jin This book was a lively and entertaining read Ha Jin s Waiting seemed to me to be a fairly dull book about relatively pedestrian characters which owed much of its success to the perceived exoticism and trendiness at the time of its publication of its setting A book which was anointed as being important and worthy of attention but which I suspect most people read out of a sense of duty rather than enjoyment

Restaurant an exclusive five star dining club the dingiest of diners and While chronicling her evolution as a writer Ginsberg takes a behind the scenes look at restaurant life revealing that yes when pushed a server will spit in food and no that's not really decaf you're getting and how most people in this business are in a constant state of waiting to do something elseColorful insightful and of. This book came at a point in my life when I wanted to justify what I did for a living I never really enjoyed waiting tables and don t I think the author does either but she made vaild points about the business It is grueling work practically running all day on your feet the organizational skills reuired the psychology of every customer and their personality profile and how ultimately no one is ever just a waitress or a cook or a manager owner everyone gets into the business for some reason and ultimately gets to the point where enough is enough BUT when it is good its good screw that it is amazing when everything falls into place or even when you had a rough day or night it reminds you that you are alive and you are capable of amazing feats while ultimately bringing home the bacon It points out that this job is bringing home the bacon without the on going
