Diary of a Tuckaway Server. “How could you do this to me”




The restaurant was not silent that night, the air thick with laughter and voices.  I walked fast around the corner. Finally, you heard the foot-steps as the door swung open. You looked at me in my eyes, and I looked at you. Your husband looked up in disarray. The child stood there with a stare of confusion too young to understand the situation at hand.

It was only an hour ago when you smiled at me as you said it was your first time. I was thorough, and took my time to make sure you were comfortable. With each stride taking me closer to the end, you could see the determination in my face. Yes, I’ve come to finish what we started. As you stood there in silence with your family, I thought,  “How could you do this to me”. I could no longer hold back.  Afraid of what might come pass I raised my hand and shouted across the parking lot, “You forgot your to-go!”
