lusioned by the financial services profession, he decides to get an "honest job" for a change. Before he knows what hit him, Jimmy finds himself waiting on tables of barflies at his local Waffle House.Many colorful characters soon emerge: man-hungry female patrons, a stonemason who carves his own teeth, and a man seeking refuge from the ghost in his apartment.

As they laugh heartily at the author's expense, readers will develop a profound appreciation for the first principle of economics: there really is no such thing as a free lunch.
