Commissar ttt

I have a good idea that will increase the NUMBERS of waitresses needed in the restaurant!

ha ha ha

Make them serve individually.
And get the DINER to indicate his portion size!
That wil DOUBLE the number of WAITRESSES needed in restaurants in China.

ha ha ha

You do know WAITRESSES are paid PRETTY well.
Obviously food waste will be minimal, and everybody will feel like a KING when dining!

EXOTIC

cheerios!
