Once only once, did I have a really sweet experience with a table with a kid. I saw them come in with a 7(ish) year old boy, and thought, 1 kid I can handle this. I get to the table, and they insist on letting the little boy tell me his specific order for his drink, which involved many different combinations of sodas. I pretended I was writing it all down, and of course, went in the back, and just gave him a glass of blended soda.
The rest of night with that table went fine. When they were leaving, the little boy said that it was the best soda he’d ever had, and gave me a little certificate the size of a business card saying that I was the best waitress he’d ever had.
At the entrance is our mascot….a poo poo!

Today takes the cake, I had a “gentleman” sit at my table and order the PEANUT CHICKEN. I drop off his dinner then fast forward 15 minutes, he flags me down obviously in distress clenching his throat. He asks if there were nuts in his dish…I say yes sir you did order the PEANUT CHICKEN. He screams at the top of his lungs, “I AM ALLERGIC TO PEANUTS YOU ASSHOLE WAITER!” Then kinda starts choking. At first I expected Ashton Kutcher to run out of the back and tell me I just got punked but this guy was serious. Fast forward to the paramedics getting called and him taking a ride to the hospital. It is hard for me to believe that this man has managed to stay alive this long…what kind of jerk orders the peanut chicken with a serious allergy to nuts!? He got what he deserved for talking to me the way he did! Sorry not Sorry

I work at a chain Italian restaurant. This guy orders chicken Alfredo and a side of ranch. I am assuming the ranch is for the little tiny piece of salad he is working on, so I put in the order and grab his side of ranch. It sits there till I drop the chicken Alfredo. This psycho grabs the side of ranch and dumps it into his chicken Alfredo, stirs it up, and takes a giant bite! Grossssss!

We are also not your servants. We sure as hell aren’t your dog and we are not your mother or your maid. I cannot stand when people have no manners, are rude, dirty or just have no idea how to conduct themselves in public.
Here’s a few general reminders for next time you go out to eat:
- If you walk in and there is a hostess you can generally assume YOU DO NOT SEAT YOURSELF
- Once said hostess seats you IT IS RUDE TO MOVE TABLES WITHOUT ASKING
- Restaurants generally follow a seating rotation. That being said there is a reason you’re being sat where you are.
- People make mistakes. Hostesses and waitresses are people too.
- If you’re polite, I can almost guarantee your service will be 100x better.
- Waiters and waitresses make about 2 dollars an hour: most of which they have to give back to the restaurant. TIP YOUR SERVER.
- Say please and thank you. It honestly does make a difference.
- If you’re going to request a table, don’t request one that you can obviously see is dirty.
- A call ahead is different from a reservation.
- If everyone in the restaurant can hear your conversation, YOU ARE TALKING TOO LOUD.
- The menus are not place mats
I hate when as a food runner i’m holding very hot plates and the family of five has no idea what they ordered as i repeat “derp burger” four times. Meanwhile my flesh is burning away.
I am a server and I was dating one of the cooks for 4 months. We broke up 2 days ago. Today I grabbed my food off the line and he decided to leave me a message…

That moment when you are almost done with your side work and you drop a container holding 10 soy sauces that shatter everywhere and it keeps you there for another hour cleaning and makes you smell like soy sauce for dayyyyys. Just happened.
Guy was talking to his ex-girlfriend at the bar. He was crying, whining and begging for her to take him back. Loudly. From what I could tell, he didn’t cheat on her or anything, she just dumped him
She tells him, to his face, that maybe some day she will get back together with him, but she wants to be free and is probably going to have sex another guy that night, and points to a guy in a group she came with.
The guy starts crying, and saying “please don’t go home with that guy”, etc. The guy is literally begging.
She goes over to the guy she is going to fuck, and walks out with him while her ex boyfriend watches.
The dude just burst into tears. I felt so bad I did two shots with him and called him a cab.
