I think the best way to illustrate this point is with the food service industry. A decade ago or so (okay, let’s be real), there was a lot of hype around the idea of “catered” or “pre-paid” (or some variation) events, where people paid an event organizer to have an event (often at a restaurant or a hotel) that was pre-booked with a series of menus and a set of guidelines.
That model has largely fallen out of favor because it’s not very interesting to people that don’t already know what they’re getting. However, there are still a lot of catering companies that cater events, and a lot of restaurants that do that.
It’s a different story when you get down to the details. Catering services go to some lengths to make sure the orders are in the correct order. This is done by either having the servers do the ordering or by having the order forms in the correct order. The one thing that makes catering a pain is because they don’t follow the guidelines. If your servers are wrong with an order, they are liable to get fired.
If you do cater a conference or a wedding, you have to have a plan for dealing with food. If you make a mistake, you could have to replace the food, or even go to the expense of hiring someone to replace the food. If the catering company is not properly following the industry standard, you could have the restaurant get shut down.
So, how do you keep catering from being such a headache? Well, they can’t, but that’s not the point – being a good server is.
Sure, catering is a big job, but there are far more important things to do, whether you’re hosting a wedding or working as a receptionist at a restaurant. The most important part of the job is to serve the guests – and in the case of a wedding, the bride and groom. It’s the job of the server to take care of the details, keep the guests happy and make everything look as nice as possible.
A server is the person who takes care of the details and takes care of the guests. Its not hard to do when you’re a server from the outside, but the hard part is having to deal with the guests. Most wedding guests are about 20 years younger than you, and you want to make sure they’re enjoying themselves. Guests can be really bitchy and will make you feel bad, so its essential to be able to serve them well and treat them well.
I know that I’m not the only person who feels like this. A majority of my wedding guests are under 20, which makes it quite hard to have a good time. I remember going to a wedding where the groom’s dad’s brother was marrying the groom. I was expecting a lot of assholes, but I was pleasantly surprised to see the groom’s dad and his brother all being friendly and nice.
Well, that doesn’t happen too often. A guest is usually a person who either wants to party or is just a person who likes to party. The former tends to be the majority of guests at these types of weddings, and when it does happen it’s usually because either there is a problem with your party or you’re way over your budget.
