In the 70’s, I was straight out of college and was hired as a waitress at the Williamsburg Lodge. I was one of the first to be hired after the Lodge went wet - that means started to serve alcohol. I was in the tennis lounge when Mrs. Anheuser-Busch came in with her golf coach and eight of her groupies. I was the unfortunate one that had to wait on her. She snapped her fingers ordering me round and round. I ran my ass off for her. When she left, she left me NOTHING. MY salary was 50 cents an hour. Can’t say I ever said anything nice about the family after that!
