"So I get in the back and go into full lunch buffet production mode, just cranking out all the pizzas I can. Every six or so I go check and refill pitchers and check on everyone. I start getting pizzas on tables and check to see if they need anything else, and, of course, they want ranch, but not just any ranch. No, they want our special in-house three-pepper ranch! I tell them it will take a few minutes since it's always made fresh, and I get to the kitchen to start making three-pepper ranch dressing from scratch. It doesn't take much once you know how, but in the time you aren't out helping people, they get a bit antsy and kids decide to play, making a huge mess everywhere.
"I finally get the ranch out and everyone seems happy. So far, so good, so I go and check to see if anyone would like anything else, and they just want the check, so I bring the tab out and it's something like $250. Our restaurant didn't do the whole added gratuity thing for large parties, because honestly it had never come up before. Everyone gets their money out on the table and they add it all up. Everyone says how great it was, thanking me for working so hard, and left a huge mess for me to clean up.
