|Is this a waitor? Or the Godfather?...The Nodfather!|
And yet, the topic last night was a selling technique we will call, "The Nod."
We sat around discussing how if you nod to your guests as you're describing a particular dish, they're more likely to bite. Apparently, this is real selling technique, but I couldn't help but laugh as I looked around the room and 15 servers and 3 managers were all "practicing" THE NOD!
We looked like a room full of bobbleheads.
To make it even more comical, the managers had us go around the room and individually practice selling our favorite item using the nod technique. Sooo creepy.
But for the record, I was voted into the Top 3 to win free dinner for our nodding skills! YES!
