Have you ever thought you had things under total control only to find out you just made yourself look like a total idiot to family, friends, or a client?
It happens to the best of us. This story may make you feel better if you are down on yourself for a BIG gaff.
Last night I attended our annual Youth For Christ banquet that was catered by a local restaurant who has a sterling reputation because they always do an excellent job.
There were about 1,000 people in attendance and the caterer had set up 3 serving lines to ensure speedy service. Each line was well stocked and well staffed.
Once the banquet was official called to order instructions were given as to which tables should head to which line and like most events people didn't need to be told twice, we swarmed the food servers.
As the servers grabbed the serving utensils it became evident that there was a problem... the caterer forgot the plates!
