This is for Hoots I just avoid saying the full name of the restaurant as much as possible.
One of the pairs was a Sketchers pair that one of the girls was wearing and she told me herself they contained leather. The other I was not sure they contained leather, but I strongly suspected they did because they were told to me to be very expensive. They did not give us the exact style and and no.'s of these sneakers, just gave us very general directions like 'all-white' and '3/4 top', but those two brands. They said the store would help us find them.
FYI, I resolved the problem. I simply bought another pair of leather-less Payless shoes, this time something like a 3/4 top. I held my breath and held them up for inspection. They passed, but she looked slightly confused.
Also, Jen, when I mentioned the fact that she is 'intimidatingly pretty' it was about as useless as the fact that she has a deep Southern accent. The reason that I mentioned that is because those two put together equals a quintessential corporate H trainer. If you work at H, you are bowled over by those women (corporate trainers) and their ability to take charge of things, and command the attention of an entire room, particularly when they open their mouths, and I'm not even a newbie seeing I've worked at two separate locations now. They are intimidating with a capital 'I'.
Anyway, she seems pretty inordinately preoccupied with the fact that I'm vegetarian. She's loudly announced in several different ways to different people that I'm 'vegan', which I always correct her to say that I follow a vegan diet. She pulled me aside to ask me a) did I have a problem serving meat, b) if I would describe the meat dishes as 'gross' or 'disgusting' and I was pretty shocked by that. I've waited at places that weren't vegetarian after I stopped eating meat and no one took me aside to ask me how I would describe meat dishes. It was understood that of course I would be selling the food since I was a server. Well, I told her that since I worked at H before I went veg, I know what the food tastes like, and I would describe certain plates as more/most popular (like I've done before). She's like, well you should describe them as 'delicious'. Again, this is so bizarre to me, because I have served meat since I went vegetarian, and no one's said that I've had to describe meat dishes in a certain way. I am not describing meat as 'delicious', I can't fathom saying that to myself, let alone aloud.
