Lost and Found

Customers leave everything in a restaurant.
Keys, wallets, purses, jackets, cellphones, shades, shoes, gameboys, umbrellas, pills, reefer, coke, cameras and beaucoup credit cards. ...they even leave crutches, wheelchairs and oxygen tanks.
Usually it's more a nuisance than a problem...but then there's always the exception.

Sometime they leave children.
Customer informs me there's an unattended baby in the bathroom.
I find the baby. We ask around the dining room. No one seems to have lost a baby. I was terrified, thinking..."Oh my gosh I'm gonna have to raise it."

30 minutes later a 20ish lady comes in and sheepishly says, "I think I left my baby here."
"Was he in a blue basinet, bout two feet long?"
"You have him..."
"Yes mam, he's in the service area with two of our waitresses. Would you like him back or did you stop in to say goodbye?"
"That's not funny."
"No mam it's not."

A lotta restaurants!

  • Did you know? Over 60 restaurants opened in the Myrtle Beach area in 2007?
  • There are now over 1600 hundred dining choices in our Grand Strand population of 55,000, making us one of the highest per capita concentrations of restaurants in America?
    Did you know over 1/3 of all adults had their first work experience in food service? And possibly their first sexual encounter as well.
  • So where was your first work experience?
