As a part of a corporately owned company, servers have to adhere to uniform checks and inspections daily. I wouldn't have a problem with that, except for the fact that I was recently reprimanded for having pens in my shirt pocket.
In the 16 months that I'd worked in that restaurant, I'd never once gotten in trouble for such a useless rule. When servers are getting written up for having pens in pockets (rather than aprons); I believe the management has bigger problems they're unwilling to address.
On a lighter note, a dear friend of mine has encouraged me to write a "Cast of Characters: Part Deux"! So look for that soon!
