How do you treat the wait staff? With courtesy or constant condescending demands and disrespect- because you are paying for service?

I had dinner with a dear friend and a woman that she had met in college. The woman ordered mussels and as you know, if you enjoy mussels, they are normally accompanied by a bowl with which one may use to discard the shells. This woman had shells strewn all over the table and had already been barking orders at the waiter requesting things that she insisted she ordered when she didn't, implying that he was incompetent and in general, all around making herself seem less and less like an ideal dining partner. A total a55hole to be exact. I started trying to collect shells and put them in the bowl and tried explaining the reason behind the bowl only for her to tell me, "That's his job, that is what he gets paid for. That is why I pay to dine out." And that behavior and attitude is exactly why she has probably had spit in her food on many an occasion.

I still stand by my original opinion that the attitude you approach someone with very much has an affect on the service you recieve. If you are continuously getting bad service, take a look at yourself....

How to Be a Good Server in a Restaurant
Some servers don't seem to have common sense these days. Sure there are many fantastic servers out there, but some just are either too lazy or just don't get what earning a tip means. Some obvious mistakes sometimes happen. A wrong entree from the same server that took the order is brought to the customer. Think about that. Doesn't that show how little the server is trying to please the customer? My husband got handed a shrimp entree instead of an augratin entree. I got handed quesadillas instead of bbq chicken nachos. I mean, this is ridiculous that a server can't REREAD the order they wrote down BEFORE they hand it to the customer. I feel a lot of times it's about laziness. It's too much trouble to reread that order it seems. I've also gotten many of times missing condiments I specifically ordered or condiments that were supposed to come with an item that was listed on the menu. That's pretty bad when a server doesn't NOTICE things are missing. It's truly the lack of caring and effort. When a wrong entree is brought out by the same server that wrote down the order truly makes me not understand why they didn't notice something so VERY OBVIOUS. It's just like DUH, but some of these servers today don't seem to be all there. I know if you rush, you may hand the wrong thing to someone, but to not make sure it's even the correct item is just plain STUPID. These servers are just doing what I call "serve-n-run." They aren't double checking the cook's work or even their own. The bbq chicken nacho incident happened due to the SERVER pressing a wrong button. The augratin incident was the server handing a bunch of entrees for our table and other tables. He told us he grabbed the wrong one. See, that server truly just "served and ran." Not LOOKING at what you are handing someone is just STUPID. That also goes for checks. We've also had a wrong check handed to us for another table. Again, another server not even paying attention to what he was doing. I call those types of servers "Print-n-run." Printed the ticket and ran is what he did.

I think it is obvious this person is not a mother and has commandeered this convo because IT trolls the internet looking for more places to copy and paste the same lame crap that IT has been doing for years. What a sad and creepy person. Like I said earlier the SAME damn posts from at LEAST 2006. Absolutely no new content. Just the same ones. What a FRAUD. This is apparently a hobby.

Ugh... Springs you're a retard. Period.



1 - the waitress takes your order by either remembering it or writing it down on paper and then going to the window and putting it in the fucking COMPUTER so that it goes to the fucking KITCHEN.



2 - The dishes and cutlery NEED TO GET DONE TOO otherwise YOU WON'T HAVE A FUCKING PLATE TO PUT YOUR NON-EXISTENT POTATO ON.



3 - YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY TABLE. THOSE OTHER TABLES AND OTHER CUSTOMERS NEED TO BE ATTENDED TO AS WELL.



4 - you OBVIOUSLY do not have children cause otherwise you would REALIZE that EVERYTHING in life takes a lil bit of PATIENCE. Including going to the restaurant for a fucking DINNER that you're fucking PAYING FOR.



You are the ONLY 'thing' being ABSURD & RUDE, you're a self centered, self absorbed narcissistic bitch that should stay home and save yourself the possibility of catching an STD from some cranky server that's sick of your bullshit that decides to jizz in your milkshake. MAYBE THAT'S WHY YOUR DRINKS TAKE SO LONG, THE WAITRESS IS PISSING IN YOUR BEER.

OK Springs, I really don't want to debate you but some of the things you expect just don't add up. I'm assuming that deep down, you think everyone should get this "perfect" service you talk about. So lets just say that the server never makes anyone wait an extra 30 seconds because their only focus is on waiting their set number of tables as promptly and accurately as possible. They don't waste time by things like rolling silverware or bussing tables. Those things can wait. Or can they? Things have to be kept up throughout the shift. No one wants to sit next to a dirty unbussed table. Had they focused all their sole attention on everyone in there before you, they may not have rolled silverware to give you? And I'm sure you wouldn't be happy about that. The point is that servers have to do the side jobs along with everything else because that's the only way for it to run smoothly. Just because a server may stop and quickly do something else on their way to getting your drink refill or you extra ketchup or whatever is not rude....bitching about it is. I would think a mother more than anyone could understand that.....

If you do that, YOU ARE RUDE!! Think about it. That bussing that table can wait. If there isn’t a wait for table, then that’s down right disgustingly rude. If there is a wait for a table, think about that the CURRENT CUSTOMERS WERE FIRST, so their TURN should be first just as they had to wait in ORDER in which they came in for a table. It’s ONLY FAIR!!

i'm sure that if you were the person having to wait for a table to be bussed you'd be bitching about that too!! these people are humans, and can only do so much. you are not the only person in the restaurant. how do you not understand that?

Waitress gets the drinks you initially ordered along with the cutlery and napkins she had arranged earlier.

REPEAT.



That is GENERALLY how I have seen waitresses keep up with all of their responsibilities while on shift."



Your server should be getting those drinks, not worrying about dirty dishes. Especially if there is no wait for a table.



I have seen CARING servers not worry about dirty dishes first. They put CUSTOMERS as their NUMBER ONE PRIORITY and those get the good tips.



Do you like it when a McDonald’s cashier decides to continue to restock instead of taking your order? It’s RUDE!!



You can do that stuff a few minutes later.



“Waitress returns to window to put up your order.”



No, your server puts it into the computer at most restaurants, not actually goes to the kitchen to give a written ticket in most cases.



“Waitress tidies bus table and gets cutlery and napkins arranged to set up table.”



NO, if we are waiting for drinks, they sure as hell shouldn’t be. Those that do that get a bad tip for being so INCONSIDERATE!! Even if there is a wait for a table, those people are AFTER us, so they should be thought of AFTER our turn.



The reason why you wait for your drinks 5 minutes sometimes if they don’t do that sort of thing is because they are doing things that are REASONABLE and FAIR such as bringing out food or drinks that were ordered BEFORE we ordered ours or they get called over. Dirty dishes can wait. CUSTOMERS COME FIRST!!



When I worked at the donut shop, I didn’t worry about dirty dishes at the booth if the customers want to sit at the counter, are you crazy? I left that dirty stuff there and served my customer, making them NUMBER ONE!! If I would have cleaned up, they would have bitched me out and I would have DESERVED THAT!! You don’t see that or what? You don’t see how it’s RUDE to worry about things you can do RIGHT AFTERWARDS since it’s not any customer that asking for anything, it’s just dishes sitting there, not tipping you?



“Waitress gets held up while bringing back that customers empty glasses and appy plates.”



As I said before, the server could have done it instead of bussing a table and getting napkins and cutlery. Let’s that that part out of the equation, unless the server was called over, she shouldn’t be bringing back customers their empty glasses and appetizer plates. She should be going to get those drinks. Now if the customers asked specifically “Can you take these?” Then, YES, she should, but ONLY if the customers asked as far as BEFORE getting those drinks.



“Waitress cleans a table and sets up another table. Waitress takes another tables order.”



If that other table has been waiting 5 minutes to get greeted already, she shouldn’t be cleaning that table and setting it up. Think when you are hungry and thirsty. Especially, if there’s no wait for a table, that’s SO DAMN RUDE and YOU KNOW IT!!



“I always find the rude customers”



That’s a RUDE SERVER, you don’t see that? In your scenario, YES, that’s RUDE!! I would have gotten a HUGE TIP because I would have gotten those drinks in your scenario after putting the order into the computer since I wasn’t double or triple sat. I wouldn’t have made my customers wait 5-10 minutes for something they could have in under 5. Even a manager agreed with me the soft drinks should be out within 2-3 minutes of your order being taken. 10 minutes should be times when your server is double or triple sat, not times where you have the time to get them, but put bussing a table first. Are you kidding me you’d treat OBJECTS as number one instead of PEOPLE? I couldn’t FATHOM doing that, WHY could you?



If you do that, YOU ARE RUDE!! Think about it. That bussing that table can wait. If there isn’t a wait for table, then that’s down right disgustingly rude. If there is a wait for a table, think about that the CURRENT CUSTOMERS WERE FIRST, so their TURN should be first just as they had to wait in ORDER in which they came in for a table. It’s ONLY FAIR!!



It’s ABSURD the way you think things should go. NO customers want to wait 10 minutes to get something to drink, unless they know it can’t be helped something like a double or triple sat situation.

Dana, are you trying to tell me that listening to the guy at the next table, perhaps 2 feet or less from your head, dissect his previous night's conquest in graphic terms replete with swear words while you are trying to enjoy brunch with your family would not somewhat distract you from enjoying the occasion? That is the kind of thing I'm referring to. I'm not so uptight that some person in the room slurping their soup even attracts my notice, but there are some people whose behavior is so atrocious that it really does ruin your time. I tend to think of that sort of thing when I think about etiquette while dining, as opposed to nitpicking the servers.

I always find that other customers ruin dinner for me, more than waitresses.



I'm not so self absorbed as to believe that my service is the only service they're attending too. When waitresses take your order they take it to the window to put up, they take your drinks at the same time, then they clean up the bus tray, usually bring someone their food that is ready, go and get your drinks and then bring it to your table. It's called MULTI-TASKING. Their jobs aren't "deal with 1 table, and then the next table, and then the next table" in order. They have to MULTI-TASK in order to serve everyone, as well as clean up, keep things running and continuing through the shift. Sometimes it will take 10 minutes to bring your drink because... here's a time line for you;



Waitress takes your order, along with your drinks.

Waitress returns to window to put up your order.

Waitress tidies bus table and gets cutlery and napkins arranged to set up table.

Waitress brings another customer their food.

Waitress gets held up while bringing back that customers empty glasses and appy plates.

Waitress gets the drinks you initially ordered along with the cutlery and napkins she had arranged earlier.

Waitress delivers your drinks.

Waitress cleans a table and sets up another table.

Waitress takes another tables order.

REPEAT.



That is GENERALLY how I have seen waitresses keep up with all of their responsibilities while on shift.



Now, it's the picky ass ridiculously bitching customers that end up taking up 15 minutes of the waitresses time when she brings them their food that ends up leaving her behind getting your drinks.



There will always be rude waitresses and their will always be rude customers. I always find the rude customers to be more of a downer than the waitress that happened to forget a fucking potato.

Emma NewnhameHaha" Springs I hope someone goes to your workplace and starts crapping on about every single mistake you make on the job."

At least I TRY my best, they don't is what I am saying. To admit "I don't add it up" is proving I didn't verify the prices I was charging you. The GM said that she had to ring it in differently, because he wanted them to get the side dish complimentary, so to me if you had to ring it up differently, something in your COMMON SENSE BRAIN should have known something would have been rung up wrong, like DUH. STUPID IS THAT STUPID DOES!!

"Holy fuck. Seriously? You seriously remember the exact price of the crawfish? That's how important this stuff is to you? "

I remember the people that affect my feelings. To see that servers want your money, but don't care about it, shows how they are.

They act like if they were at a restaurant, wouldn't they rather their server be a responsible caring server that noticed this BEFORE they got their check? I am serious here.

I am tired of the wrong prices. We have had it at lots of places and I remember each time even.

I can remember that better than short term memory that doesn't affect my feelings. I mean think about it, that's what triggers your memory most of all is if you had something that triggered your memory with a FEELING about it.

For example, most of the time, when a server introduces him or herself, I can't for the life of me remember what name they said, but I can remember something of 20 years ago or so that happened to me such as my mom almost hemmoraged and almost died when I was 2yrs old. I can remember I was watching literally the 2-headed monsters that were purple that usually spell a word on sesame street back in 1979(I was born in 1977). Things that trigger feelings, make you remember. I have feelings about this, because we go out so often, we have this type of issue pretty often I find. I would say since late 2000, we have had around 35 or so overcharges at least. Some were wrong prices, some wrongly rung up stuff, some extra items, one that was given less coin change than owed, and some wrongly rung up tables on our credit cards.

I am sick of the ones that act like they are OWED or ENTITLED instead of EARNING their money that they act like THEIR MONEY is HOLEY AND DOW as if that's the ONLY MONEY that counts, but F' the customer's money RIGHT? The customer's money is not important to them, yet, they want our money, right? Caring is a 2-way street, so if you don't care much about ours, we ain't going to care much about yours. Now, we have had some regular servers that have overcharged us, but you can tell it was certainly unintentional and they were VERY busy. I gave those servers some slack since they normally treated us with respect and GOOD SERVICE 99.9% of the time, so I forgave them more than if I were to have the same situation with a stranger. You may say it's unfair, but I don't see it like that, because I go by the other times, NUMEROUS, where they have been so WONDERFUL to us and I can't do wrong to them. Now, of course if they start to show they are abusing my niceness, I will not ask for them again and give them a bad tip for the last time I have them.

So my point is, there's a HUGE difference between a REAL mistake, or the ones like that the waitress admitted she didn't add it up or the waiter that we SAW with our OWN TWO EYES not verify WHICH PLATE OF FOOD he was DELIVERING TO WHICH TABLE as HE COULD HAVE VERY MUCH SO WITH HIS PAD OF PAPER, BUT WAS TOO LAZY AND RUSHING AS IF THIS WERE FAST FOOD OR SOMETHING.

He didn't even do it in the kitchen it sounds like to me.

If I'm ever concerned about my mental state and any obsession I've got with something totally petty, I'll just search out this thread and feel loads better!

We've discussed the apparently galling errors of waitstaff to the point of ridiculousness, but I'm wondering, what about the other customers? I actually often find that it is another customer in the restaurant most likely to ruin the dining experience as opposed to the serving staff or even the food. We went out for brunch this morning, the food & service were fantastic, but I was exceedingly relieved when the unbelievably obnoxious guy behind me left just as I was getting my food. His loud talking and swearing was ruining my appetite. What do you folks think?

Krista E.Yeah, "um, Springs1...one thing that you seem to be forgetting is that servers are human beings. Sometimes they make mistakes."



Yeah, but honestly 90% of the times, it's pure LAZINESS and UNCARING. That waiter for example, that gave my husband fried shrimp with fries with he ordered crawfish au gratin with a baked potato, didn't TRY HIS BEST, he was LAZY ASS as can BE for a waiter.



Any DECENT, CARING, GO-GETTER, ENERGETIC, NON-LAZY person would have at the very last, CAUGHT his mistake WHILE delivering the food, but he was TOO LAZY ASS to COMPARE HIS WRITTEN ORDERS TO WHAT TABLE HAD WHAT!!



HOW THE HECK IS IT A "MISTAKE" IF YOU DON'T DON'T GO OVER YOUR WORK?



It's just like not proofreading a paper you wrote, but hand it in anyways, being LAZY about it. That's not a REAL MISTAKE, that's PURE LAZINESS AND BEING UNCARING about you grade or in this case about your tip.



Honestly, most of the time it's not a mistake.



I had a rude mean waitress tell me "I don't add it up" when I had a couple of wrong prices which was added into one. If you added crawfish, the price was $4.99, but you see any common sense person would have verified the MENU BEFORE giving our check. Our overcharged was a $1.50 on an item(an entrée we NEVER, EVER, ordered before). The thing is, she was stupid. Any SMART customer knows that the menu price is the only one that counts considering we don't order from a computer screen. So the servers of today act like they aren't customers ever. To tell me "I don't add it up" is such mean thing to say. You don't care about our money, we won't care much about yours. We left $4 on $85 and something cents.



You are going to be a bitch, right back at ya for being a non-caring, not nice, and LAZY ASS bitch.



You could have caught it BEFORE you handed us this overcharge instead of making US do ACTUALLY WORK VERIFYING ALL PRICES WHICH IS YOUR JOB, NOT OURS SINCE WE ARE PAYING YOU TO CHARGE US CORRECTLY, NOT US!!



I would like to add that the original price before the crawfish was $21.99, so if you ROUNDED each price 22 + 5 = 27, not 28.48. The price she charged wasn't $26.98 Common sense would tell you if you ESTIMATED without a calculator to the nearest dollar, that it woudn't add up to that much, like DUH, lack of CARING about customer's money and common sense, but yet they want YOUR MONEY at the end. If they want YOUR MONEY, they should care about YOUR MONEY, LIKE DUH!! She admitted it wasn't a REAL, TRUE mistake that she said "I DON'T ADD IT UP" meaning she didn't take the time to verify the prices. So that's the tip she got. She should have gotten nothing for her UNCARING , bitchy attitude.

[deleted account]

Wow I am a little stunned. I would definitely be polite and nice, as long as the staff treat me with the same respect. I mean it -is- their job, but it doesn't mean that everyone should be nasty to them. Because would that mean that people can treat you the same at your work? Or if your children treat you like slaves? I mean that is so wrong. The term "what goes around comed around" is kind of true..

LMAO no I'm not that lady because what she did is just pain stupid...

I've only ever complained once to date/...when there was some sort of bug/grub on my food! They offered another meal free of charge but by that point I wasn't hungry not surprisingly!

Some people are just petty but I certainly wasn't going to eat food with a wriggling thing on lmao =]

When I was a waitress I used to have a customer who came in for bacon and eggs EVERY Sunday morning...she would eat her eggs last EVERY week, then complain that her eggs were cold.

Finally I brought her breakfast out with no eggs on it, when she complained that there were no eggs, I said I'll bring them out when you are done eating the rest of your food. Imagine my surprise when she complained to my boss that I was rude.

Are you that lady? cause I'm pretty sure you ARE exactly that lady

I treat the staff with respect just the wayI'd expect to be treated but I have no problem with complaining if something isn't up to scratch =]
