i don't know about the rest of you, but this month has been horrible as far as business goes. i work in a restaurant that gets very busy and so far, THIS WEEK, i've had a total of about 8 tables. THIS WEEK AND I'VE BEEN WORKING SINCE MONDAY!!! thank god for my personality and good tippers loving it, it really works out


my friends who work at restaurants said the same, as well as just regular retail stores.

anyone else experiencing this?

That and people probably can't afford to drive AND go out to eat due to the hellish gas prices!

NO and thank God! We own a restaurant and it's been unbelievably busy this whole summer. (due to the hot weather of course) The restaurant is on Lake St. Clair in Michigan so it is a hot spot with all the boaters especially.

the restaurant i work at is nowhere near beaches, pools, etc., so maybe that's why, too.

Jen, August tends to be a slow month everywhere. People are off taking up what's left of their vacation time, hitting the beaches, pools, parks, anything outdoors, so things slow down. Even at our job site, we have been able to work more due to the fact that there are less people wandering around the building. Don't worry it'll pick up right after Labor Day when everyone's back to work & school.

It's been crazy for me at work. I dunno, was Monday a holiday I wasn't aware of? It felt like Saturday afternoon at our counter! I don't know where everyone came from, 'cause Mondays are usually quiet!

What I'm depressed about is that we're halfway through August and I haven't been to the damn beach all summer! Isn't that tragic???

OMG Joy, how are you coping? I would never be able to. I'm a beach lover and need to see, feel, smell, jump into the ocean and lay on the beach as much as possible. That's so sad to hear. Summer isn't over yet, maybe you can still squeeze in a day or two in the coming weeks.
