For a couple weeks in March, Kristin Geppert caught some slack at work. Her normally frantic day slowed down, her constant mental list of to-dos was shortened, and she even had time to stand still.
“You’d actually see me standing around twiddling my thumbs,” she said, “which never happens.”
While many over-worked employees may be relieved to have some downtime once in awhile, Geppert was not. Like most waitresses, Geppert relies on tips to make her living, and slower business at the Flying Biscuit Cafe in the StoneCrest shopping center in south Charlotte meant her $100 days whittled down to $80, and sometimes $75, days.
“It wasn’t huge, but it was enough that you noticed,” she said.
