What is your strangest work moment? I waited on John Waters at a restaurant I worked at and I am a huge fan of his. I had to hide in the back in order to not fangirl him immediately. Of course I ended up being his server. I fumbled the entire time: spilled wine near him, and made lots of uncomfortable eye contact. At the end of the meal as he was leaving I asked him if I could show him around Philly. He said no.
