– “Can I start you off with any $5 cocktails, maybe any flavored teas or lemonades?” “No, I’ll just take a water with extra lemon” – AKA I’m not getting a tip

– “I wanna sit over there…in THAT booth”

– “Can you get me a refill” “Yeah sure!” *brings refill back* “Can you get me some ranch?” “Of course” *brings refill back* “Can I get another refill?” (This can go on forever)

– Table keeps on flagging you down because they’re ready to order….then don’t know what they want.

– “I only drink BAR water…I’m kind of a water snob”

– “We’re just going to sit here and catch up….” AKA let’s just stay in the restaurant until they close

– People who leave tips in half cash, half credit.

– “I want what I had last time…but I don’t remember what is in it”

– Whitney

  1. Gosh – I will now be much more aware of my restaurant manners…wow…people can be so rude. i was a waitress one day for lunch at the Yellowstone National Park Resort. I was quickly shuffled off to the laundry room when I couldn’t take the orders fast enough – didn’t make it there either!! :)

    I’m going to be a lot nicer and more competent to waiters now.

    I was one, too, for one month in 1989. I was probably worse, lol! but it definitely humbles you to wait staff

    I was the world’s worse waitress for a month back in 1968. I confess I didn’t deserve the tips I got, but can identify with your post. I’m extremely sympathetic to all waitress and bar tenders now. My youngest daughter is both, and has told similar tales to yours.
    Keep your chin up and celebrate the gracious customers.

    Yeah sucks to be a server but pays the bills
