Feast your eyes on the newest shackle to make me further curse my day job:
That's right, boys and girls, security cameras!
And, no, these cameras were NOT installed to prevent theft or vandalism. They were installed, according to one of the restaurant owners, to keep an eye on "drunken thieving servers."
In addition to the four you see on screen, an additional 17 cameras will appear before the month's end.
But the terror has already started. On one particularly leisurely Friday afternoon, when I thought the owners had fled for Palm Springs, the restaurant phone rang.
"TELL (BITTER WAITER) TO BUTTON HIS SHIRT!!!!"
The cameras are connected to the Internet. The owners and managers can watch my misery from the comfort of their own homes.
Bitter Waiter, in deed.
