The Slice

Name game 2

Justin Harke is a cook. He works at a restaurant on East Sprague.

"It is very hard to keep our servers' names straight because they are all fairly similar," he wrote.

Part of his job is to call out a server's name when a particular order is up. But the acoustics are challenging and sometimes the sound of the name gets a bit muddled. "Fiasco" is the word Harke chose to describe the situation.

The names of the wait staff include Mia, Mega (pronounced Meega), Maria, Cerina and Marci.

"We also have Hannah and Anna." And two Nathans.

"Also, whenever a to-go order is up, Joe comes to the window because it sounds like his name."
