    I worked in restaurants at several summer resorts while in college. One summer I was on Mackinac Island, Michigan, another time in the Black Hills of South Dakota and also on Block Island, Rhode Island. The first two were great, the last one, less so. What I liked best was living in dorms with college kids from around the US and a few foreign students, made some good friends. The work was always busy but was fun. When I dine out, I know how hard the staff is working and I try to be an agreeable customer and tip well. 95% of customers are great, but its the 5% jerks that would ruin your day.
