I had a creepy foreign family in my section last night. They yelled at each other the entire time in some kind of Eastern European language and ordered in broken English. They ordered a chocolate cake for dessert and the youngest member of the family took it upon himself to “make” me (their waiter) a present. This creepy little foreign shit licks the remain chocolate on the plate into the shape of a heart.
The family left without leaving a tip. I guess they thought letting their youngest son tongue the fuck out of a plate was enough gratuity for me….I hate foreigners.

I was the cocktail area closer the other night. Our signs all say we close at 9:30. My manager was walking to the door to lock it (right at 9:30. He is crazy punctual), when a trashy looking couple walks in. I was the last person on, so naturally it fell to me to serve them.
After greeting them, I told them “just so you know, our kitchen has been in the process of closing for a while now, so there might be some things that are unavailable, or that will take some time to make.” I expected them to order something quick and easy, like a pot pie.
Instead, I get this “Can I get a full rack of ribs with some fried shrimp, an order of croissants, a salad, a side of mashed potatoes, an order of onion rings (which by the way are hand breaded, fried, and then stacked 22 rings high), and a side of broccoli cheese casserole? And she’ll have the grilled chicken alfredo, a salad, and a side of corn.”
I finally left the restaurant at 11:30 (two hours after we close) after cleaning up their gigantic (mostly uneaten) mess. And the tip? Three dollars. On a $65 bill.
I love people. So. Fucking. Much.

The store I work at, which will naturally remain unnamed, is run by people who insist we offer small children lollipops (as well as small, cheap toys that often double as choking hazards). Since we’re reminded to make such offers, I did so today only to be met with a response of “Oh, no. My daughters don’t need those.” The three little girls protested, and were met with a scolding along the lines of “You don’t need suckers, because they’re nothing but sugar and sugar makes you fat. You don’t want to be fat, do you? Then nobody will like you.” Certainly left me speechless, if nothing else.

Today is National Ranch Dressing Day. Every waiter and waitress cringes at the sight ranch dressing.
Even mentioning extra ranch in to someone in the food service industry inspires the image of a fat, needy patron sucking down diet coke and dripping cellulite all over the restaurant. I don’t know what the connection between loving ranch dressing and sucking at life is…but it exists and everyone here at BreakRoomStories thought it would be fun to devote today to shaming all those ranch guzzling douche-bags.

Rapper The Game posted this picture to his twitter this week. Supposedly The Game was feeling generous and tipped his waiter, Eme Ikwuakor, $6,000 dollars cash money! We don’t know if this is confirmed but that is a fat stack of cash and huge smile on Eme’s face. Game….sit in my section any time.

Does anybody else wait till their non-slip shoes have holes in them before getting new ones?

I work in restaurants, and I do enjoy it to some degree.
However, as anyone else in this industry will tell you, something mysterious and strange happens when normal people walk through those doors. They turn into entitled monsters who will ruin your night (and faith in humanity)

Walked up to my table having an argument, this is what I heard her say right before I introduced myself:
“Maybe if your dick was thicker than your goddamn eyebrows we wouldn’t be having this conversation”
