  • In the Weeds

    When I was a waitress at Cracker Barrell for a year, I remember a term we used when we were overwhelmed with too many tables at one time, we would say, "I'm in the weeds."  It was a cry for help. The best part about working for CB was the teamwork that helped everyone stay on top of their game so that customers would never be neglected.  We would deliver food for other waitresses as soon as the food was up, we would refill drinks for any tables on our way to and from the kitchen, and clear plates as we noticed them so that we were always carrying something into the kitchen. There was no reason to be empty handed.  Our CB team worked smart and hard and we had fun doing it! Customers were happy and tips were equally great for everyone.
