Every time this regular comes in, he rustles my damn jimmies by just flat out refusing to speak to me until he absolutely must. He’ll walk in, I’ll give him a big smile and say something friendly like “Afternoon sir, good to see you again” or whatever… and he’ll sort of glance at me and walk past me and start looking around the restaurant, checking for his friends or deciding what table he wants. I’ll go, “Joining us for lunch? How many in your party today?” And he’ll shrug without looking at me and wander towards his favorite table.

If I’m really lucky, sometimes he’ll hold up a number of fingers to indicate how many friends he’s expecting. If he’s getting takeout, he’ll ignore my greeting and stick his head over the counter to where we have the specials posted in the wait station (for the staff’s use – we have them posted very obviously in a convenient spot outside for customers). Not a word from him until he’s ready to order. And he never acts particularly cranky… the vibe is very clearly just “you’re beneath me, I don’t need to talk to you.” So damn rude.


  1. lol… we have one lady who comes in regularly but stands 5 feet from the counter, covers her mouth with her hand and mumbles her orders. we call her the chipmonk.

  2. Your title says it all. You are not, however, beneath him. He is clearly beneath you.

  3. That is disgusting behavior. It reminds me of an article I read today which I’ve given you the link to. I’m not sure if it will make you feel better or worse…(worse that we live with people like this)http://nyti.ms/17dWZNF

    Sorry, Amanda. You deserve better. I hope some of your customers appreciate your efforts to brighten their day.

    I want to read this post but the relegations on my dorm’s internet deny me, therefore, reblogging is the solution.

    Maybe he has an irregular asshole and that is why he is so horrible. Hehehe :) I feel for you – I have dealt with this A LOT!
