With everything opening back up and things starting to get back to a little bit of normalcy, we have been venturing out and starting to dine out at our favorite local restaurants. The other day we decided to try one of old favorites that we have not been to in over a year. When we walked in it was about 80 percent full and we said hello to one of our favorite bar tenders. She said hello and had enough time to say that we chose the busiest night to come in. We grabbed an empty table that had not been cleared off and proceeded to wait for the waiter or waitress. After about 5 minutes we went back to the bar tender, and she said that they only had two waitresses working so we decided to leave. After leaving there we stopped at another restaurant close by that did not appear to be as busy. As we walked in, this place looked to be about 30 percent full, so we seated ourselves and waited for the waitress. While we were waiting, I looked around and it appeared they were short staffed as well. When our waitress finally made it over I asked if she was the only waitress and she said that she was. She was upbeat about it and said she did not mind and that every time they hire a group of people they only stay a few days and then do not come back. The next day, I did a little research and discovered that this staffing issue is not only a problem in the restaurant industry alone but across many industries throughout the country.
