good advice

last week i was at the lost weekend with some gals and i ran into an old friend. he and i worked together at a video store when we were in high school. we are playing catch up and it comes up that he and i are both servers at chain restaurants. though i am tempted, i suppose i should refrain from telling you which restaurant out of respect for his employment. anyway, i am telling him my recent horror story (soon to be told) and he counteracts with this bad boy:

you need to start greeting evey table of two or more as "folks."
"hey, folks, how ya doing tonight?"
"what can i get for you folks?"
etc. condition them to hear you saying folks and then BAM! start calling them "fucks."
that's it.
start calling all of your tables fucks. everyone will hear you say fucks but, since you have been saying folks throughout, they will assume you said folks and that they misheard.

good times.
