Ah, Christmas Spirits
So I had a table of four come in tonight...
A family, son at home on break and the daughter.
As I go around to take drink orders there are waters for the kids and Bacardi Cokes for the 'rents.
Upon dropping of the libations the young man and lady order a Corona and Bacardi Diet.
(Must be going south for vacation)
Well they look borderline for sure, especially the daughter, the closer I look the younger they appear.
I answer with a cheery, "Sure thing, could I bother you for your ID?"
Both the youngsters start to fidget uncomfortably.
"We don't have our ID's"
The parents just stare at me, neither one attempting to vouch
I see the young lady's purse next to her.
No ID's my ass.
"Sorry folks, I can't." Is my answer.
All look pissed.
I finish them up later and pick up my server wallet.
Eight bucks on a $79 check.
And yes they received good service, I was polite and I do know when I stink up the joint.
That one drink would mean my job if I was questioned on it.
Screw 'em, I'd rather get a shitty tip than hit the bricks on Christmas Eve looking for employment, especially when I don't have rent covered yet.
Well on a brighter note I hope everyone has a great Christmas.
And yes, it is Christmas...
