This is one of the coolest looking Bob’s Big Boy’s I’ve ever seen. You can see me standing there, and get a feel for how big the sign is. I like restaurants with huge signs.
I was a bus boy at Bob’s Big Boy when I was in high school. Except we weren’t allowed to say “bus boy”, we had to say “dining room attendant”. They tried to make it classy. Our only pieces of equipment were a grey rectangular bucket to dump all the dishes into, and a light blue rag that we used to wipe the tables down. Except we weren’t allowed to say “rag”, we had to call it a “sanitary”. Again, it was a classy place.
The best part of the job, was seeing some of the waitresses change from their regular clothes into their waitress clothes. I wasn’t a perv or anything. They just changed right in front of you. There was a back room where people hung out & they’re talking to you and all of a sudden they just change clothes right in front you. Gotta love a Bob’s Big Boy waitress.
The worst part was having to bus a table, and the people at the table were a bunch of jerks that you went to high school with. And you didn’t like ‘em in the high school hallways, and you certainly didn’t like ‘em at the table you had to bus. Oh, and I almost forgot, we weren’t allowed to say “bus” the table, we had to say “clear” the table.
We got 50% off food. I got the chicken parmagiana almost every time.
This particular Bob’s Big Boy is in Burbank, California. And the best thing about it, besides the way it looks, is that it’s open 24 hours! It’s no Pamela’s, but it’s just a fun place to hang out. They have big booths. Very important. I think down South, the Bob’s Big Boys are called Shoney’s. But, I gotta say, Jersey still has more 24 hour diners than any other place I’ve been. I like late night diners. If you got a favorite 24 hour diner, let me know.
And Andy, back off Martina. I saw her comment first.
