They Say to Write What You Know

I’m generally of the mind to take the phrase “write what you know” with a grain of salt. I’m a fantasy writer, even if the “fantasy” means the daydreams of a high school kid. But with several of my jobs, I’ve spent more than a few days saying “oh god, if I wrote a book about what happens here…”

As you may have noticed, I’ve started doing this with the café I work with.

Tales From the Café: Can’t Win ‘Em All

Time: Saturday, 12:49 pm

On weekends, during the day, we do brunch. This throws people off sometimes, since we switch up the menu a good bit for those two mornings and not everything people expect to see is on there. So despite the fact that I don’t work brunch all that often, I have seen more confused customers walk in on a Saturday mid-morning and be baffled by the full service treatment and the lack of breakfast sandwiches. This usually upsets some of them.

However, there are always a few for whom this is entirely unacceptable. And leave it to me to get one on my first brunch shift in months.

Tales from the Café: Lunch Rush

Time: 12:46 pm, Friday

I took a deep breath, looking out at the line as I slipped behind the second register. “I can help the next person in line!” I called out, looking down for the next customer ready to order. We’d been dead all morning, and now it was like everyone in town had decided to come eat lunch with us.
