Looks Like....

January 12th, 2007 (01:42 am)
current song: Dirty Eyes (Sex Don't Tell) - The Raveonettes

The Geege is going to have to start bringing her glasses to work.
The new computer system/POS system is ALOHA, (3rd new system in as much
as two months???) and all words. Scrambled lists of words
like a goddamn computer screen--
or a book.

*sigh*

Only, I can't run around with my specs on.
I run into things and get dizzy.

Picture the OLDEST waitress at Opal's......with her little GRANNY CHAIN
around her neck for her jeweled-cat-eye specs?
PLEASE SHOOT ME.

(And WTF, didn't ALOHA go the way of the dinosaur after 1993???
I have met this thing before.....but I had 20/20 back then.)

Growing pains, within the Company.
I understand why the changes have been made (and re-made)
but Nooooooooooooooooo!!!!
Please don't make me wear a GRANNY CHAIN???

(Tell me it would be hot, go on, TELL ME!!!)

I have to get faster on the machine, and I can't....*sigh* I can't SEE it.
*head in hands*
It gets blurry and makes no sense.

I have to be able to scramble up and peck my order in for a 12 top, and step away,
for the next guy....(we only have TWO working screens right now,
one inside--one all the way outside in the club house on the deck. We are HIGH volume.
Sometimes 8 or more Servers on. We are ready to kill each other.)

The other systems were Screen to Screen, by topic.
Big letters, spaced nicely. Ideas in certain areas...
Not LISTS to scroll down and pick from.
The abbreviations have not been standardized.
I won't tell you how many "creative" ways you can choose
for a glass of/or bottle of
wine.

IT does NOT inspire SPEED.

*winces*

Whoever PROGRAMMED this thing....

We have gone back in TIME.

I would rather do it the TRUE oldfashioned way, than this.
CAUZ BABY, I'VE DONE IT!!!

*laughing*

okay no, that would really suck.

Raise your hand if you have ever used a sliding imprint CreditCard thingy...on a
regular basis? *raises her hand*
Turned in hand written GuestChecks to the Cook? *oooh ooh ME ME ME!*

Yeah, that........that sucked more than a Granny Chain.

*pushes her glasses back on her nose and grins*

Guess I have to learn to judge distance in these things, huh?
I see some DOWNED trays in my future...........*squints*

It was great. A lot of fun. Pretty well attended too. However, my LJ guilt trip entry was an utter failure. No one from LJ land attended.

I'm so sorry.

I stayed in bed, with CEDAR FEVER.....
and cleaned dog marks off a wall that made me cry.

coffee and alcohol

you could wear a granny chain, and make it look sexy ;-)
all the hipsters would be wearing them by summer if you started now.

YOU MUST WEAR GLASSES CHAIN FOR FACILITATION OF YOUR SEXY ACTIVE LIFESTYLE.

I have a friend here in NOLA who at least used to make very funky-cool chains for glasses. Should I inquire if she still does? She owes me favors as I read to her Mama every Friday.

Sorry to say my friend has not done the chains since Katrina. I'll keep you in mind if she ever goes back to it. Sorry!

Why don't you wear your glasses on your head? All the celebrities are doing it.

the POS system was made to punish anyone in a service industry. that's pretty much what they do.

I'd bet dollars to dildoes you'd rock a granny chain hardcore! Perhaps the granny chain isn't your only option, however. Perhaps you could use a brightly colored nylon lanyard; there are plenty of those around. if you were to get an assortment, you could coordinate with whichever outfit you were wearing on that particular day.

Oh, and the jeweled cat-eye glasses? HOT! Be sure to post a photo.

At the Cheesecake Factory, we used PosiTouch, which was decent. At First Avenue when I started and left there, the trons just used pen and paper and as 'tenders we just rang things up based on buttons on the cash registers. Now I hear they went to one of those integrated systems everyone's using now. I have no idea which one it is, but I bet it'll slow down my friends a bit. It's so easy to just know what's call and which is premium. Domestic beer? Tap beer? Import beer? Cool. It took studying, but then you just got to the point where you knew. You just knew.

The intuitive factor is SO missing in this system...
And wrap your head around the idea of 60 Scotches,
36 beers on tap, another 30 or so in bottles, wine as well...
All the various vodkas, gins, bourbons, etc...
all the modifiers...tall short rocks splash of soda...

and that is BEFORE we get to our FULL kitchen.

*sigh*

I was at a point with the other systems where my fingers just found
what I needed because I had done it for so long, screen to screen to screen
from muscle memory!

Now it is a long scrolling list.
