Who am i and what is this blog about anyway?

So...This is a blog about people, well....strangers....customers and the regulars who, at my job, I meet and serve on a daily basis.
Im a Brit, moved over here from London, among many others came to Hollywood to follow my dreams of becoming an actress. Two years later here I am... working in Hollywood......Hurrah!
Well, not quite..., here I am, yes, a waitress. Spending the majority of my days between serving at the diner and banging my head against the wall.
The one thing I have to say about this menial servant job is that I get to meet people from all walks of life. At the trendy diner I work at ,which will remain anonymous for now, I come across everyone from the picky celebs to the homeless guy who puts ketchup in his oatmeal. One thought goes through my mind each day, usually as I'm taking an order, and that thought is... "ARE YOU SERIOUS?"

If you have ever served the *insert whiney Californian accent here* "Decaf, extra shot, non-fat, no foam latte" bitches or if you have encountered the many of them here in this bizarre city then perhaps my stories will amuse you. Each day I am stunned by the requests, attitudes and lifestyles of the people I encounter that I feel compelled to share these situations with those who are interested. Plus it's my own personal therapy and the only thing currently keeping me on the brink of sanity.

Now don't get me wrong, I am not some negative and bitter waitress bitching about my patrons..well I may seem that way to you, but that isn't the idea. LA is, or rather pretends to be, the land of "positive thinking" *cough* but I am here to thrash that and devote this blog to pure negativity and welcome all those who wish to vent. We can't all be saints, no matter how hard we may try to be!
That being said, the people I deal with only enhance my life experience and I am grateful for them to have given me such funny, bizarre and sad things to write about.
Thank you kindly. You fucking assholes.
