I chose to compare fast food restaurants because I don’t use a lot of different things or services so it would be hard for me to review one thing and it would also be hard for me to meet the word count on just one item. I chose quality of service as one of my criteria because it’s important to note things like your food coming out fast and the restraint not giving you the
“Ms. Hamilton can be charming, tempestuous, persnickety, vulgar, poetic, provocative, and mothering, sometimes all in the course of a single flurry of sentences” (Gordinier). Many will inquire, how is it possible for one person to express so many emotions in a brief moment? Due to Hamilton’s upbringing and lifestyle transformation, she has encountered contrasting walks of life; she has performed the duties of a troublesome teen, a ruthless chef, a nurturing mother, an expressive writer, and so much more. As a child living along the Delaware River in New Hope, Pennsylvania, Hamilton’s parents divorced when she was eleven years old and abandoned her. This forced her to grow up quickly and learn how to live an independent life. In order to survive, Hamilton cooked with any ingredients she could find and landed a job washing dishes in a restaurant. Eventually, she went to college to become a writer, but returned to the kitchen shortly after graduating. Once she met her husband, she instantly fell in love with his big, Italian family—something she longed for during the entirety of her childhood. Nowadays, she manages and cooks in her family-styled, New York City restaurant: Prune (Gordinier; Hamilton; Kakutani). Gabrielle Hamilton has become one of the most influential and well-known chefs in the world, because she displays a welcoming, homelike environment in her restaurant and uses simple cooking techniques.

When Alex Smith noticed his 13-year-old brother, Chris, slip off the rocks above Wildwood Falls he knew there was only one thing to do. Without hesitation, the 16-year-old boy ran to the edge of the rocks, where the current of the Row River was pulling his younger brother towards the nearby waterfalls. He extended his reach as far as he could to save his brother, and was unable to grab him. Leaving the safety of the rocky shore, he jump in, hoping to pull his brother to safety.

For my rhetorical analysis assignment, my group had to write about a restaurant or public place where people would eat food. I chose to write about the University of South Alabama Cafeteria, also known as the Cafe. I went to the cafeteria and observed my surroundings and I myself also ate as well. I then wrote about the positives and the negatives of eating in the school’s cafeteria. While I wrote about what I observed that day in the cafe, I used three strategies of writing. By using the strategies of imagery, content, and tone a specific mood was created.
In the book, Nickel and Dimed, Barbara Ehrenreich writes the story, “Serving in Florida.” She describes her experience living as an undercover waitress when in reality she’s a journalist for culture and politics with a doctorate in biology. Ehrenreich experiences trying to survive on multiple low income jobs to understand what it is like to be in their shoes instead of being apart of the higher middle class. Ehrenreich uses imagery, diction, pathos and logos to strategize her story and make it more appealing to the readers who are higher income people wanting them to understand how difficult low income life can be.
The most critical event of my life was November 11, 2013 the first time I boarded an airplane to the United States of America. It was the scariest but happiest time of my life experiencing it with my father and sister. I was afraid of heights, so there were times when I told my father I was too afraid to board a flight. I never actually imagined myself boarding a plane owing to the rigorous processes in acquiring a United States visa. I was extremely happy to celebrate with my dad and sister. However, it was a humbling experience to know how different the world is, and at the same time, how similar our lives are. Traveling can be critical but, what makes it interesting is the adventure, food and companionship, and new things.
New Orleans has been my home for the last twenty-four years. There is so much offered in New Orleans like delectable foods and diverse cultures. My grandmother was a very influential person in our community, and a very talented seamstress; people would come from all over the city to have her make their outfits. She would sew complicated costumes for parades, gorgeous gowns for balls, and Indian outfits for the spy-boys, flyboys, and big chiefs. The Indian costumes are my absolute favorite. I would sit, and watch her for hours, and if I was well behaved, she would let me hand stitch a few wampums on.
Lars Eighner goes into great detail in his essay, “On Dumpster Diving”, when discussing about his experiences living on the streets and the ways of Dumpster diving. He called himself a “scavenger” and even though he would rather live a “comfortable consumer life,” he learned so much from being a scavenger. Eighner begins the chapter with the three principles; what is safe to consume, knowing the Dumpsters, and knowing the answer to the question “Why was this discarded?” He then discusses how to identify good or rotten foods; what will leave the person satisfied or have the person end up with botulism. Eighner also states the benefits of knowing the different locations of dumpsters, like his experience with the Dumpster behind a pizza delivery shop. He knew what time it closed and when the last employees left. He always had a lot to eat due to customer complaints or bogus calls.
I conducted my ethnographic observations over the course of a few days. During my fieldwork observation, I recorded observations of customer behaviour, the general layout of the restaurant, culture significance, and décor.

For this observation I chose to study and observe the use of space in different interactions at a restaurant. The study of how we perceive and use space is called proxemics. Proxemics is studied because it can tell us a lot about people’s relationships and help us decode the messages that others send to each other (Guerrero, 2008, p.182).
Time passes really fast and I have already worked as a part-time waiter in this Japanese restaurant for two and a half years. Today is my last day at work and I have a lot to share, not only the most memorable experience I had while working, but also what I have learnt since I chose this job.
