“Sorry, I just bring out the tray”

That was the remark of a server who placed the wrong meals in front of the wrong people at our table, prompting everyone to switch plates and side orders. Not a huge deal. And working in a restaurant isn’t easy (I’ve done it). But we live in a rapidly changing world where even the time-honored role of waiter and waitress may soon be replaced by technology. To stay relevant the trick is to bring your best game to whatever it is you do, and not just bring out the tray.
