The best book on waiting tables that you have never read – yet

Former Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu’s favorite waiter dies

According to the AP, Cornel Urcan has died at the age of 67.

Not only was he Ceausescu’s favorite waiter, he was also likely a spy for the Securitate, the secret police that Ceausescu employed until he was executed in 1989. Plus, he could reportedly carry 24 plates on one arm.

I can see it now – “Waiter, what’s your name”? “Orcan. Cornel Orcan”.
