sillypantstoan8 karma

For a while it was policy at the chain I worked at that bartenders didn't write anything down.

Yeah, I totally accept being judged more harshly if I got something wrong, but I had a way better track record than the people in the restaurant who did write stuff down. Including special instructions and substitutions, I could handle up to about 8 guests before I felt I was actually at risk of a mistake. A few things that made it work for me:

  1. My primary mode of learning is auditory, and my secondary is visual, so hearing the order, then visualizing it and its place at the table was generally enough for me to remember.

  2. Grouping people together who order from the same category of the menu. Sort of like memorizing a chess position... you don't look at individual pieces, but rather groups of pieces and how they fit together.

  3. I always repeated the order back to the table. This is good practice because I may have misheard. Because I'm an auditory learner, saying it and hearing it again solidified the memory.

Sorry if I sound cocky, but it really did just work for me. Probably would have been a disaster if I had different primary/secondary learning styles.

I see it on the apron, but are you an actual sandwich artist through subway certification or does everyone who works there now just have the title?

What happens when you witness a person with different anatomy than you get physically stimulated in a way you can't? For instance, an amputee getting poked on what would be the inside of your leg? Or vaginal penetration?

How does it work if you have multiple people in your field of view? You said you feel the hand slap, but do you also feel like you just slapped someone's hand?

What happens when you asymetrically physically interact with another person and maintain your view of the interaction, either with your own eyes or through a mirror? Is it disorienting?

Thank you for this AMA!
