Over the last several years I've gotten to know quite a few diner waitresses since Little Pete's closed. Christina at the Broad Street Diner in South Philadelphia has become one of my favorites. With diners shutting down all around her and business being only a fraction of it once was she remains friendly and hardworking. We've managed to have some good conversations and while not being that old she has an old South Philly soul. Christina was the subject of a Time magazine article in 2019 that looked at how hard the industry is while trying to support a family. Since the article was written before the pandemic the situation has gotten extremely worse.
