If I had to do it all again, I’d change it.
Not so many people say that these days – but seriously… After you read my do-over moment, you’ll definitely agree with me.
This ranks in some of the highest ‘most-embarassing-moment’ categories for me… so – laugh, but feel bad for me too… please?
When I was in High School, I worked as a waitress at a pretty snazzy Country Club. The job was pretty laid-back, so long as you kept your cool and acted super professional. But: What’s professional for a high-class restaurant? About the highest-scale restaurant I had been to before working here was Olive Garden. No joke.
We had these Hideous (but so predictable for a country club) outfits to wear. Green skirts that hit just below the knee, with a white puffy shirt – and an apron, of course.
So… Here we go:
Once Upon a Time…
I was on Day 2 of my period – which just so happens to be my least awesome day of my period – But work is work, and life goes on. So I went to work armed with some ob. tampons and some serious Midol usage.
I love ob – and even love that my husband INSISTS on calling ‘Bullets– or ‘Ammo’ and names them by their caliber…
Back to work: One of the tables I was responsible for that day was a group of about six men, dressed up in business suits all sitting around a large round table. They were having a business lunch.
They were pretty serious people – and almost no one laughed the whole time it seemed… or at least that’s what I remember….
Anyway – All went well with their service and food (As far as I remember) – but at the end, I had to give the bill to the member for him to sign.
They don’t actually pay at the table, but rather just sign that they’re agreeing to the charges.
So I gently laid the folder with the check down next to him, and walked away.
As I’m walking away, I hear a slight trickle of talk and confusion….
You guessed wrong. I didn’t have a mess –
I looked back, and I see him holding it…. yes, The bullet. He and the other guys were inspecting it – as to guess what the heck it was, or how to sign the check with something like that….
I SERIOUSLY GAVE HIM A ‘BULLET’ IN THE CHECK!!!
Instead of a pen.
So yeah – If I had a do-over – this would be one of those moments I’d pick… I’d double check that book before throwing that TAMPON into it!!

Ok, now you can stop laughing at me and start feeling sorry for me…
