In Australia, they do "try-outs" for waitressing jobs. I'm trying out at Melograno Cafe! If you'd like to read about the cafe a little, you can check out www.donkey.com.au and search for "Melograno" or click on "Food>Cafes and Bistros on Oxford & to the South".

Simon and Tina are the owners and they are wonderful, kind people. The place is right around the corner from where I live. The customers are mostly sweet. A man came in, leaving his dog in the truck parked outside (as per law) was SO proud of himself for picking out that I'm from Canada. He proudly declared that he wanted to give me a tip... and presented me with a dollar.

"See?" He said loudly, "we DO tip here!"
