Stay Calm And Save A Life

Of course, no one likes the thought of facing emergency situations at work; and unless you're a police officer, an EMT, or a military personnel, you probably don't face scary situations very often. However, working in an environment where eating is literally going on all day, you may find yourself witnessing one particular type of emergency that requires immediate action; choking.

Choking occurs most commonly with very young children and the elderly, but it can happen to anyone. Sometimes a medical condition causes difficulty in swallowing; sometimes people (especially toddlers) just get in a hurry and don't chew their food sufficiently. And then, of course, there's always the instance where so-and-so tells a joke just as their friend is taking a big bite of steak, and... well, next thing you know, so-and-so is yelling for anyone who knows CPR because his friend has laughed and choked on the steak (what a way to ruin a good dinner!). Whatever the situation, knowing how to perform CPR is a valuable quality. There have been many instances where waiters and waitresses have saved the lives of choking victims, and they become beautiful examples of how every-day heroes are made. These life savers are usually just ordinary people who had enough foresight and love for humanity to prepare themselves for an emergency; at some point in their lives, they attended classes that taught them how to perform the Heimlich maneuver, administer chest compressions, and provide oxygen until professional medical assistance arrives.

If you would like to take the steps toward becoming CPR certified, the Red Cross provides information and training that will give you confidence as you face possible emergency scenarios in the workplace.

How many servers work at your restaurant? : 10 to 20
I love it

The whole reason I even bought this was because my boss said I couldn't keep my tips in my server book because I was touchin cash everytime I opened my book to take an order. The waiter wallet totally saved my ass on that one but also it has a slot so you can put a cheat sheet in. So now when a customer asks me how much extra it would be to put this or this in their food, I don't have to run and check. Its all right in front of me. And it fits great in my apron. Its perfect.

Pretty Cool!

I love. A co-worker showed me her Waiter Wallet and I was sold. I went with the original size but upgraded to the more durable material or Deluxe version. I also got the additional sleeve to add more cheat sheet info. I really like it. Makes me feel very professional and organized. I never write reviews but figured I should because its so much better then using the regular check books. Nice product.

Where has this thing been all my life?

This is awesome. I use it at both my server jobs. I completed 3 of the templates and those alone have saved me a lot of back and fourth to the bar.
