I have been employed as an events waitress for about a month now. I have probably worked around six shifts at this point. This line of work certainly was not anything that I imagined it to be and has been kind of interesting. You would imagine that working as a waitress at an event would mean extra stress in a fast paced environment, but this is not the case. Don't get me wrong there are times when the managers will hound you to serve faster but you know what they say (simply take it in one ear...and out the other). I've had the privilege of seeing things that most normal people would not get to. I have worked at a wedding reception in a mansion that had a swimming pool, and worked at Kensington Palace last week.
