‘I’m gonna have to be there until close. So maybe like 11:30pm?’ A Woman Talked About How Hard It Is To Make Plans While Working As A Waitress
by Matthew Gilligan
If you’ve ever worked in the service industry, you know the drill: your schedule is always unpredictable and it can be a real pain in the neck to make plans with friends and significant others.
A woman named Jessie posted a video on TikTok where she talked about how annoying this can be. In a fake conversation, she said, “Yeah, so, I’m scheduled until 6, so I could definitely meet you there, probably like 6:30pm. But if I get sat right before I’m supposed to leave, then I’ll probably get out at 7-7:30ish. So then I could definitely meet you there by 8. ”
Does that sound familiar?
Jessie continued, “But, also, if we’re short staffed, I’m gonna have to be there until close. So maybe like 11:30pm? If we’re not busy, though, I’ll get out early, so I could definitely be there by like 2.”
The caption to her video reads, “If u get it u get it.”
Take a look at what she had to say.

I’m so glad I don’t have to deal with this. It would be maddening!
