A Prayer for Red Lobster Servers During Endless Shrimp

All our thoughts and prayers go to those souls who are working at Red Lobster because the world famous Endless Shrimp promotion started yesterday. That’s right, Red Lobster employees, yesterday was not a bad dream. It was real. The constant demand for Parmesan Peppercorn Shrimp and Garlic Sriracha-Grilled Shrimp from people who don’t know how to say “please” or “thank you” were not figments of your alcohol-induced slumber. It really happened and it will happen again today, tomorrow and every day until the powers that be decide that you have suffered enough.

I have never worked at Red Lobster so I can only imagine the horror that it must be to deal with this kind of promotion. It is probably just as bad as Endless Apps at TGI Fridays, National Pancake Day at IHOP or Veteran’s Day at Applebee’s. I want you to know that we are all thinking of you.

Here is a little prayer for you to print out and carry with you to work today. Keep it close to your heart. Put a copy of it in every sidestand of every Red Lobster from Maine to California. Memorize it if you must.

Also, if you can’t make it to New York City so see my show on Friday September 9th, you can click here and watch it on a live stream. LIVE STREAM, people!

I want two things: a shift drink and your email address!

Someday, if I ever get my act together, I might send out a weekly newsletter about the wonderful goings on of the restaurant industry. Or maybe I won't.
