Waiters wanted – What skill sets?

A classified Ad seen for the job of a waiter in a restaurant

XXXXX XXXX  is looking for quality people to help us provide excellence in service to our customers. We offer competitive pay with regular raises, performance bonuses, convenient scheduling and a fun atmosphere. We are looking for high energy, service oriented people that love customers and have a positive attitude. Photography experience a plus, but we will train the right candidates. Must have used not less than two brands of digital cameras at least once.

I was surprised by the last two lines in this classified. Was this the dreaded “printers devil”? It had to be.. ever heard of anyone looking for waiters with exposure to photography? Later, it dawned on me that this restaurant was looking at a new and unique marketing/customer service strategy. Customers now visit restaurants with friends and family and always end up requesting waiters to take pictures for posterity. You might as well train your waiters to be expert photographers and hence provide excellent service and photography quality to their customers.

What has this world come to?
