I would like to talk about my late-night job at a family restaurant when I was a student.
I felt it then.Advantages and disadvantages and girls working in late night restaurants.I had a lot of thoughts.
In the second half, I will tell you about a hair-raising and dangerous experience I actually had. Please take a look at that too, if you like.

Advantages of working in a family restaurant late at night, as I found out through experience.
Let me start with the advantages.
Advantage 1: Late-night work pays hourly.
This is the biggest one.
At the restaurant where I worked at the time, during the day, I was paid by the hour.850The circle late at night is1050 yenThe following is a list of the most common problems with the
Unlike daytime, the difference is 200 yen.
Since we were in a very rural area, the hourly wage of over 1,000 yen was quite gratifying.
Advantage 2: Late night restaurants attract all kinds of people.
Late at night at a family restaurant, depending on the location, there are many different types of customers. People who would not come in the daytime.
So I thought it was a great time for people-watching. Specifically, what kind of guests did we get?
- (It was almost a cabaret) Ladies in dresses and a wide variety of customers.
- I'd say he's over 60.Super sweet Lolita fashionThe grandmother of
- An old lady who always eats anmitsu (sweet bean jam) every day and then falls asleep.
- A mysterious group that makes you wonder what the relationship is all about.
- The uncle with the grease marker on his head.
I couldn't stop fantasizing every time.
Advantage 3: When the manager is not around, I can work in a more relaxed mood.
I felt at ease because there was no manager, or rather, I was able to work harmoniously with all the employees.
(Of course, we are doing our job as stipulated.)
I was basically in charge of floor work alone, so I was worried that I would have to take responsibility for anything that happened during the late-night hours.
But it was easier for me to handle the work as I pleased, from my point of view.
Advantage 4: Fewer people, so the ability to work more efficiently
Late night restaurant work depends on the restaurant.There are many jobs that can only be done during the late night hours.
In a family restaurant, for example, this could include cleaning the drink bar, restocking tables and the back yard, and setting up for the morning meal the next morning.
And I had to basically do it all by myself (sometimes two). Of course, I also had to do the floor work (showing people around, taking orders, serving food, cash register, and cleaning up).
After doing this repeatedly, one gradually learns to prioritize what to do first and what to do in between, and becomes able to handle the work more efficiently.
I enjoyed the sense of accomplishment I felt on days when the work went as efficiently as I wanted it to.
How to streamline operations! This was a great learning experience, and I think it helped me in my other part-time jobs as well.
I cried on my first day of work.I am surprised at how far I have come, though.
Disadvantages of working in a family restaurant late at night that I learned from experience.
Here are the disadvantages.
Disadvantage 1: Late night restaurants have a worse clientele than during the day.
As I mentioned in the merits section, late-night restaurants attract all kinds of people. People who would not come in the daytime come.
And this can be a disadvantage.
It would be fine if there were just a lot of unique customers, but there were also customers who swore unbelievably and were unreasonable. I once had a customer who spilled juice from the drink bar and another crazy customer threw a package at me after closing time (why?).
I also worked daytime hours, so in comparison, I still had more customers late at night who were not so nice.
Disadvantage 2: Working late at night hours may make you fat.
I guess it depends on your body type, but my overeating got out of control and I gained weight.
It will be night and day, and the hormonal balance will be out of whack....
You gorged yourself on food before getting a late-night bite, but you also gorged yourself on snacks during your break.
And then we had breakfast on the way home as well...and so on.
Face, flatI thought that if I couldn't control it well, I would end up fat. I thought that if I couldn't control it well, I would be on the verge of fatness.
Disadvantage 3: Working late at night hours can cause skin irritation.
This, ...... was as shocking a phenomenon as gaining weight.
Women's hormones are all over the place. + Stress explosion when a bad customer comes. → Rough skin. Rough skin.
If you have strong skin, there is no problem, but if you are prone to breakouts on your face easily due to stress, you may need to be careful.
Disadvantage 4: Late night after work, missed trains or dangerous driving.
In my case, I drove to work, but when I left in the morning after work, there were many times when driving was dangerous.
Fortunately, we were on a country road with little traffic, so there were no collisions, but it was still dangerous because it seemed to go off every once in a while.
There were times when I was in a hurry because I realized that I had been driving unconsciously, and I had no memory of the road I had taken.
In such cases, it is better to take a nap somewhere once.
Even in the case of the train, I sometimes overslept, so that took a lot of energy.
Experience. I had a bad guest late at night.
Earlier, I mentioned that late-night restaurants receive all kinds of customers.
I would like to talk as an aside about the mysterious dangerous grandmother case, which I still remember vividly.
That was when it was almost closing time (about 4:30 in the morning).
I told the customers in the store that it was time to close the store and started closing the cash registers.
While the customers who were urged to leave were leaving one after another, that day an old lady with a gothic lolita-style frilly frock and a doll was having a hard time leaving. (She probably looked over 60 years old.)
I was surprised to see her and said again, "It's closing time~," and the old lady suddenly turned on.
grandma"Aaandajajaja? Aaandajajaja?"I shouted.
I thought it was kind of a bad idea, but I still went to the prompt every few minutes.
Excuse me, sir, we have to close.
But it's hard to leave.
It is a mystery to me if they even understand what we are saying any longer. (Maybe they didn't understand.)
The atmosphere was getting dangerous, so I said, "That's enough! I told them to go home in a strong tone of voice.
Then I got even more turned on.He threw a doll he was holding at us.
After dodging the flying dolls, he now throws them at the store's decorations.
Just after I thought, "Oh no, it's about time for this to go away," the old lady finally left the store, mumbling to herself as if she had guessed what was going on.
The staff in the kitchen came out to see what was wrong, but Grandma was already out of the restaurant.
Fortunately, neither I nor my store was particularly damaged, but it was a night when I truly felt that there are all kinds of people in the world.
At the same time, it was my first experience to see such dangerous people coming, and it made me think about the risks.
Well, this experience is quite irregular. It depends on the location of the store.
People from all walks of life come to restaurants late at night like this. I thought the girls should consider including this kind of thing.
Late night restaurants have the advantage of higher hourly wages, but the body goes crazy. Girls especially. I've had skin rashes.
It was too fresh to see so many different customers, I could work with ease and spontaneity, and the members were the strongest.
I felt a tremendous sense of accomplishment when I was able to get the job done efficiently, and I saved money, but I also realized that it was risky.
