So You Want To Be A Waiter

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

The Roethlisburger effect

Dude is in some trouble.

How do I know?

Because suddenly, my normal 300 – 500 page views has soared in the past couple of days to over 1000. My previous high day was around 660.

My one little article about Big Ben garnered almost 800 hits yesterday.

This was a post from months ago about how he allegedly got a waiter fired for asking for ID from a young woman in his party. It wasn’t even about “sexual assault”.

Ever since I posted it, Big Ben has been like ketchup – it gets a few almost daily search results. People seem fascinated with both Heinz and Big Ben. But the last couple of days seems to indicate massive interest in anything Roethlisburger, and that can’t be good for him.

In a way, it’s cool to get the page view count up. I am under no illusions that much of it will stick, but if it gets some people to stick around and check other posts out, then that’s cool, I guess. It would be great if a few restaurant customers get to see things from the other side of the table. Maybe this will help a few people understand a little more about what waiting tables is all about.

This new bump will certainly get me to 100,000 page views before the first year is up, which was a goal of mine. But it was trending that way anyway. It will just happen sooner, I guess.

Really, Ben? Really?
