Let's say that I work as a waitress in a restaurant, and there's a customer who wants to pay his\her check. I go to the restaurant manager and say: "I need to..............................". What am I supposed to say in this situation when I need to give a customer his check and receive payment?
Working in a restaurant can get crazy sometimes. That means people speak quickly, and a little differently than they normally do. It's also common in a lot of restaurants to let the wait staff do all the payments themselves.
When I was a waiter, I used to say this if I needed someone else to handle the money for me.
"Hey, (name), get table 3 the check! I gotta drop this food!"
