Woman: I’d like the grilled salmon. Me: I’m sorry, unfortunately we’re out of salmon for tonight but we…

At this point I’m cut off as the woman looks up from her menu and says…

“What do you expect vegetarians to eat then?”

The look in her eye told me she wasn’t joking when she asked the question. I almost just gave the woman a ‘wat?’ but caught myself and directed her to the middle top portion of our menu where the fish and shellfish selections are located, thinking that maybe she thinks pescatarian and vegetarian are synonymous.

“I don’t eat fish or shellfish”

I’m just dumbfounded at this point and can only manage to say “Oh”. At which point, she throws her hands up in a fit and exasperates “I’ll just take the spinach dip”.

Crown gem after all of that was her question of “Can you just put a rush on that?” as she looks at the packed restaurant in the background.

I’m still not sure what she thinks salmon is; if she thinks it’s grown from the ground, picked from a tree or is just a conglomeration of other vegetables in the shape of a piece of fish.

Best five bucks on a $70 check I ever earned.

So, I worked last week and I was sat a table of three girls and one guy who seemed to me about my age (early 20’s). I came up to the table introduced myself as I always do, and started to take their drink orders when one of the girls asked me to list off every type of lemonade we have, once I was done she informed me she didn’t like our lemonade and just wanted a coke the others laughed. I smiled, and came back with their drinks. From then on every time I came to the table she had something rude to say, I believe that she was showing off to her friends. She unfortunately was the one who paid, and left me a nice little note along with a 10% tip on $50 saying, “Better service will get you a better tip! Smile. Don’t judge a table by their age, we work in a rest (she crossed out the end of restaurant I’m assuming because she didn’t know how to spell it) and we would have left you a GREAT tip! <3" When she and her friends left she smacked the book right next to guest I was assisting and said "here ya go."

If she really is a server, and I really doubt it by the way she treated me, I'm sure karma will come back and get her. I've never treated any server of mine with such hostility and hatefulness. Oh, and I know how to spell the type of place I work at, and I don't judge people based on age but based on how they treat me. Thanks!

I was seated with a two-top in a corner table so I went over to get their drinks. This couple was the kind of people that would be more likely to frequent a trashy bar. We are not upscale by any means, and we do serve hard alcohol, but we are more of a family restaurant. After bringing them their beers I first asked the woman what she would like. Just a cup of the tomato soup. Ok. No problem. I look to the guy who just has the cringeworthy look of a total scumbag. You know the type.

“What can I get for you sir?”

“Oh, I’m not getting anything else tonight. The only thing I’ll be eating tonight…
(puts is hand to his mouth and his trashy self leans in towards my face and with a half whisper half shout exclaims)
is her Vagina!”

They both laughed. I walked away.

She didn’t like the soup.

Leaving me a mini snickers bar, mini sweet tarts, and a gobstopper on a $120 tab is not cool…

Never gets old


She smells like salmon and farts

There is a booth in my restaurant right next to a computer. When ever you are ringing in things there you can hear everything they say at the booth. Last night I had a 4-top of 40 something cougars. 4 bottles of wine later I overhear them talking about what my penis might look like.

Wake up at 1, watch tv, waste time, “shower,” go to work at 4, get off at 10:30, get drunk, drive home, repeat.

I work at an all female server restaurant. I am almost used to the creepy pickup lines that these old men throw my way but I just had to submit this one.

Was working a busy night at Buffalo Wild Wings, our female bartender went into the restroom and opened a stall that wasn’t locked and there was a lady playing Dj-Hero on herself completely naked.

The best part is she was sitting at the bar, the bartender quickly left and the lady went and sat back down and stayed for about an hour after the whole thing went down. I’m sure it was the most awkward one hour of that bartenders life.
