Ok... First of all you're not making yourself look like the easiest person to work with with all of the rude comments you're firing off in response to other's comments (you did post this on here for responses right?).
Second of all I am a retail manager, and managing people seems to be the same across the board. Alot of younger employees need to be micromanaged and I've learned I can't say "do this" and expect it done. So to say "here's you're section take care of it" is a big risk when you have alot of employees that can't handle that kind of responsibility. You said yourself this isn't going to be your life's work. So what do 1/2 of the employees care their tables suffer a little? I know that 99.9% of the letters on this site are complaints mostly about service.
So good for Perkins for making sure people get their food while it's hot and fresh. If you're the waitress pro that you claim to be you should be able to be getting to every table with time to spare to check back in the kitchen.
It does sound like people need a lesson on getting their own food out so that running others is the exception not the rule. But by running out of Perkins rage filled, getting on here and writing to corporate, and then not going back you're not going to change the policy at all. You're going to be the know it all waitress that they regret hiring...
