I apologize to those in advance who clicked on this fanpost expecting some trash talking. This is not the case.
I am a waiter at BJ's in Westwood. I have worked there for a little over two years. We have celebrities come in every so often and I never seem to be phased. However, yesterday during lunch, I approach a table with four guys at it and I recognize one of them. It was Petros. As I'm going through my routine "hey guys, my name is Jamie, i'll be helping you out, can i get you something to drink to start off" I kind of half smiled when I made eye contact with him. He smiled back. And I don't know what came over me but i said, "i know you." He kind of laughed and said, "oh do you?" I went on serving them like normal. (in case anyone is wondering, he had black coffee and a small veggie pizza) I pointed him out to some of the other servers and most of them didn't know who he was. I told my manager and he got really excited. He went over to the table, introduced himself, told them that he listens to his show every day on his drive home and that he was going to buy his table lunch. They got a kick out of this.
They sat there for a while writing today's radio show. I'm not sure who the other three guys were. I'm pretty sure one was not Matt Money Smith unfortunately. Petros left first and handed me a 20. Then the other three guys left me 40 more dollars before they left. I was actually having a rough shift earlier and this was a great way to end it. Many thanks to "P" and his crew.
I believe in giving credit where credit is due and for all the crap we give him (myself included), he was really a nice guy.
