Tablets vs Servers
Tablets will be coming soon to a restaurant near you. Now you won’t have to speak to waitstaff to eat out, and you will even be able to ignore those accompanying you at said dinner while playing tablet games at the table. Ugh.
But seriously – Applebee’s and Chili’s are both saying this move won’t result in layoffs of waiters/waitresses. Sure. With turnover as high as it is in the sector, they won’t need to – they just won’t replace them as they leave.

Personally, I think this was just a matter of time and is a small sign of the inevitable in so many similar sectors. I’m okay with it – it’s just evolution and the future. But I can’t help but wonder how, in 20 years, this will affect the sector and similar ones out there …
Welcome to the Future!

3 Beds and 1 Guy
So I arrived in Elizabethtown KY tonight for a week-long project. When I checked in at the front desk at the hotel, the guy said …
“You’ll really like this room. It has 3 queen sized beds.”
“Would you like a wake-up call?” he asked.
“Sure” I said … “Call me every hour, on the hour, so I can switch beds.”
I walked in, and he was right about the beds, but wrong about my enjoyment of said room …
Frankly, being away from Tina and the kids like this hurts.
