Oh, sure – Anthony Bourdain has the market well-covered with his behind-the-kitchen-curtain exposes. But what about Front of House workers? Steve Dublanica, aka “The Waiter”, has written Waiter Rant: Thanks for the Tip–Confessions of a Cynical Waiter. As Bourdain himself asserts, the book is the “…front of house version of Kitchen Confidential; a painfully funny, excruciatingly true account of the waiter’s life.”
Every profession needs a patron saint, if only to have a focus for any screams of frustration that may arise during the day. Give the servers in your life someone to pray/rant/complain to with this whimsical statue of St. Martha – Patron Saint of Waiters & Waitresses.
For the jewelry-loving servers in your life, how about some hamburger earrings, a fried egg ring or perhaps a cabbage necklace. These and much more can be found at Finger Food Jewelry. Or, if you want to go really crazy, Tiny Hands Online has scented jewelry, including a Butter & Maple Syrup Waffle Ring.
For something a bit more practical, there’s this Waiter Wallet Organizer – The Ultimate Server Book for Waiters. Designed by waiters, the wallet has slots for cash, credit cards, and even a place to keep the day’s specials.
And, to make order-taking a bit more fun, why not get them this Predict-a-Pen. Similar to the Magic 8 Ball, the pen provides a variety of responses to your most pressing questions.
And don’t forget the ultimate in practical gifts for someone who’s on their feet a lot. Every server needs a good pair of super-comfy and durable shoes. And you can find all sorts of styles and colors over at Clogs-N-More. There’s also the Men’s Work: Exalt – Closer from Skechers, recommended by on-their-feet workers everywhere.
