Last Sunday at Cornell
It was incredibly busy this morning at the restaurant, so our server kept getting caught up with the various guests. It was difficult for her to reach us, since we were seated at the table in the back of the room. However, that should be no excuse. I felt uncomfortable to know that I would be the last one served. For instance, when I needed some water, our server was no where to be found. She was always checking up on our table the first time we ate at the Statler. Should it be because of the many more parties she had to wait on?
Sundays are normally homework days for me and that is exactly what I ended up doing. All day, I have been reviewing the readings we have been doing for homework, as the professors said we will have a quiz on them this week, unsure of which day, but better get to studying today. The professors also assigned for us to committ some type of service for homework. We must service someone as if they were a guest. I forgot about that until my friend reminded me. Then I thought about what I did today and what I did yesterday. It seems I have already completed the assignment. When we went to brunch this morning, I ended up clearing up all of my plates and utensils and gathered them in a pile so it is a little easier for Lauren to take away. I even gathered Julia's little dish she used for her dessert and piled it on top of my stack of used dishes. I would like to say that was service, but I am not quite sure. I am thinking of things I could do tonight that could apply as service, just as a back up.
Tomorrow is the start of our last week. I am beginning to feel a bittersweet sort of feeling. I am going to make this final week the best. Finish it off with a bang.
