I Invented a New Word


Jason Rimbaud

280 views

So I had a single GAY man and his mother come in to the restaurant today. When I saw him walk in the door, I actually paused in mid-step. He was gorgeous. One of the female servers was near me and she made the remark that he was dreamy. I smiled at her and replied, "Don't bother, he plays for my team."

She asked, "How do you know?"

I smiled mysteriously at her and said, "Trust me."

As luck would have it, the man and his mother sat in my section and I ended up serving them. Throughout the dinner, the man and I would do some chit and some chat. Nothing really bad, just some harmless flirting, much to the amusement of the man's mother.

Once dinner was over, they ordered a dessert and declared that they would share it.

What I wanted to say was, "Aw, that's sweet."

But what actually came out of my mouth was, "Aw, that's qweet."

The man looked at me and flashed a smile, saying, "Did you just say that's qweet?"

I blushed and nodded my head.

His mother spoke up, "Qweet, that's sounds like a mix of queer and sweet. What exactly are you accusing my son of being, a sweet queer?"

Needless to say, I blushed even more and they had a good laugh at my expense.

I walked away and got the check ready. I placed it on the table after they paid and wished them a good night. I just happened to be standing at the door talking to my manager as they were leaving. My manager, as he inquires of every guest, asked, "How was everything this evening?"

The mother looked at me and with a big grin, said, "The dinner was wonderful. And the service was lovely."

My manager, completely unaware of the earlier conversation, looked at me and said, "Jason's one of our best servers."

The mother replied without missing a beat, "He deserves a raise, not only did he take care of us but he invented a new word for my son."

They walked out the door as my manager looked at me, a confused look on his face. I shook my head and just walked away.

So today, I invented a new word. What did you do?

It's the qweetest thing I ever heard. Seriously though, I wish I had servers who chitted, chatted, and basically made me feel good at dinner. I always seem to be stuck with those straight dudes. Sigh. What's the address of your restaurant? (No, I don't really need to know this)

What did I do today?I learned a new word from my friend Jason, that's what I did. Thanks, Jason I will make sure it gets around to Adelaide's' Qweetie-pies. Qweet... I love that. I have added it to my custom dictionary list.:confused:

Unfortunately Rad, getting his number, if my manager ever would find out, would be disastrous. It's never a good idea to shit where you eat. And he has strict rules about maintaining a professional work ethic at all times. I was pushing the limits even with the harmless flirting I was doing with the couple.And if you don't recognize the term, shit where you eat, it basically means you don't jeopardize your job for a cute guy. The same principle applies that you should never date a co-worker, because if the relationship doesn't work out, you are now stuck with working and seeing your ex every day. Bad for business let me tell you.And Trab, if you ever came to my restaurant, I'd make you feel like a king. I always talk to the cool people, especially if their in the family. :confused: Des, I can see it now, qweet will be popping up all over the web. And the straights will be confused, but they'll repeat it anyway because it's a good word and they'll want to be cool. They'll start calling their friends qweet, and before you know it, the INTERNET will be full of sweet queers and the Republicans will try to curb the practice saying how the word qweet is destroying the fabric of America. Hmm, I like the sound of that.Jason R.

Thanks, Jason, for, "I always talk to the cool people," but I have to laugh, a LOT, because I'm about as far from 'cool' as you can get. On the other hand, I'm not 'hot' either, so you'd probably have to ignore me. That's fine though. I wouldn't want you to lose your job over me. :lol:

Now, now, Trab. I don't think I ever said "HOT GUY" equals "COOL GUY". I know lots of hot guys who are assholes, and I know a lot of Cool Guys who aren't that good looking. My ex-roommate, Daniel, is one of the nerdiest looking guys in the world, but I think he's one of the coolest people I ever met. I wouldn't lose my job over you, but I'd definately talk to you, just because it doesn't matter what you look like, Cool people are above that shit. And by the way, I ALWAYS talk to anyone in the family. Jason R.

That's too bad, Jason. Here, when I was still working as a food server, you could easily get a number. Well, just don't get caught. :lol:

What kind of good, Trab? :lol:
