The problem probably was that it takes a long time to crack and eat multiple plates of crab so tables in the restraunt were not turning over very fast.

That's a very good comment. I used to work at California Pizza Kitchen whilst in college, I remember they used to encourage us to upsell by encouraging patrons to order dessert. I never did this bc I wanted to turn my tables over, meaning, I would rather have another waiter have the dessert patrons whilst my station was full of the people ordering the big ticket entrees...thus making better tips for myself scince people tip on the percentage of the check. Therefore the time people spent in my section had a larger tab average.
Pity the author of the red lobster idea didn't figure what you did out. Since those days of ten years ago waiting tables I went on to work in the "real world". It's amazing how little common sense people have out there in cooperations. That's why I quit working for them. Got sick of ninny ideas and the yes men at the meetings that would stay silent for "politics". Eventually jobs were lost as a result of massive idiocy. I mean really when he proposed this idea did not one person have YOUR come back to it? Share the love? Sounds very Democratic...
Now my husband and I have our own business...it's hard work and I don't have the "benefits" but the satisfaction of not becoming a souless automiton is worth it.
