Sometimes I like to make up words to match situations. Here’s today’s made up word/phrase:
Common form of memory loss often found in food service industry waitstaff. Especially prevalent in restaurants that don’t write anything down when you order, often resulting in the wrong dressing, wrong drinks, and an entirely missed entrÃ©e.
Seriously, when did trying to memorize a table’s entire order become a new parlor trick worthy of higher tips? I can see when it makes sense in a high-end tiny restaurant where you only have 5 options and there are 6 tables in the whole place, but when the local bar and grill starts doing it on busy nights, bad things happen.
