As a waiter, you know what it’s like to hand a customer the check. You roam around the floor, asking if everything is okay and you receive mouth-full quick-nods. Occasionally, someone will signal you with that air pen motion of writing. You acknowledge knowingly and bring them a guest check presenter.
You’ve worked in restaurants when you didn’t have one, when you just had to hand them a slip of paper with the pen over it. It was a greasy diner with a fat cook who handed all the cheeseburgers out with a yell and a slap on the bell. His sweaty hair underneath his chef’s cap and his blood-stained apron make you glad you don’t work there anymore.
Thankfully you have a job at a nice restaurant. The money’s good, the crowds and turnover fast, and the people you work with are friendly. You guess a lot is represented in the guest check presenter. When it’s leather, you can feel good about handing the patrons the check: a service for a service. Just goes to show how the details of a restaurant, like the menu covers or the guest check presenter can make a big difference in the service.
