Today, it was my first day at work. They had me a large tray with lots of food on it, even after I told them I wasn’t comfortable carrying it. I hit the door on the way out of the kitchen, spilling everything on the tray, breaking 2 soup bowls and 3 salad plates. FML

If you couldn’t carry everything thing at once then you should make 2 trips, if they try and make you do it in one shot then forget them do as best you can. Unless there an asshole no one is going to complain if you have to make more then one trip to bring out food and drinks.

I was a server for almost two years. You'll learn, and it'll get easier, but it'll also suck the whole time! If it's at all possible, just make multiple trips or ask for help next time. I'm a really small person so carrying a full big tray was never really an option for me.

For Clarification: I was 14 when I had a job here, it was at a retirement community. It was my first ever job, and the job was for specifically high school students and is known in my area as a good beginners job wether you are interested in the food industry or not. They stacked plates really high and it was mostly a job for experienced employees. I got really good at carrying larger trays after that day and ran almost every shift, since we had different positions each shift. I no longer work there. Also now to think back on it, the doorways were way to tiny for the trays and the doors were really hard to open, not good for a restaurant...
