waiting tables

just wanted to say sorry to everyone who has been waiting for their entries to go up. i don't have net at my house and i think hotmail trashed some of my lj emails...

okay on to the work story: so my gm got fired a week or two ago... she was going in for surgery and if she had lasted two more weeks she would have been covered under ihop's healthcare... nope, they fired her instead. she's suing, thankfully.

now i work for a completely corporate douchebag. he's one of those guys that tries to pretend he's your friend until you do something he doesn't like. then he'll threaten to write you up, and bitch about what you did for the next two hours.

And as the wretched customer began mouthing complaints and asking for everything extra- making my job so much more complicated because they felt they had supremacy over everyone else in the restaurant inlcuding myself, all i could fathom saying at the very momemnt was:

"look bitch i don't come to your work and slap the dick out of YOUR mouth!"

People are usually pretty nice to me but once in a while I get the supercreeps that just try and make me angry. This resulted in me completely ignoring the whole table. If I wait on you, please do not whisper what kind of beer you want under your breath and then scream it at me when I ask you to repeat it. Please do not roll your eyes at me when I ask you if you want a 12 or a 22 oz beer. Please do not say loudly after the expo brings your food that you're doing alright because "someone already did my job for me". That's not very nice. I was the only waitress. I had six tables. I pay the expo out of my own tips to bring my food out. Prick.

Opinions? [Jul. 23rd, 2004|02:43 am]

So what's your consensus?


At my restaurant, we stop seating at closing time. Of course, unless we are full (we're kinda small), then take-out only. I don't mind the last minute customers, as long as they are speedy eaters and get the hint to leave instead of jabbering when they are done.

Saturday = Loonies! [Jul. 11th, 2004|12:41 am]
waiting tables
[mood |weirdweird]

Hi! I'm new and joined thru noticing a cross-post on customers_suck. I work in small, locally owned Japanese restaurant in Seattle and have been serving there for over 4 years. I don't mind my job so much, but sometimes rude customers and such just take it's toll.

Anyways, I don't know what it is but for some reason Saturday nights are full of the crazies.

One crazy guy came in tonight staring down the hosts without saying a word. He was seated and after he was greeted by his server (not me), he walked back up to the hosts and said, "It smells like you are serving cloned humans and I don't eat that!" and he left. Uh...WTF?!?

Anyways, I'm sure I'll lots of stories to tell here...heh.

i have a million stories from the other day, but this one gets me the most....

we were extremely busy (restaurant full with only 4 servers on the floor when we needed at least 8) and i go to check on one of my tables, ask how everything was...

will: are y'all doing alright over here?
jerk: well, i was very disappointed, my meal came out and it wasn't even warm (regardless he had eaten the whole damn thing and could only have had his meal for three minutes max)
will: alright, let me get my manager, i'm sure she can help you out in some way.

my manager goes over, and the fuck-head pretends like nothing was wrong. she asks me what the hell i was talking about, and i explain to her that he was complaining a minute ago. skip ahead, i give him a 10% discount, he leaves, i pick up the credit card slip and of course, the tip is $0...

how are you going to complain about your food to me, but act as if you hadn't said anything to me when my manager comes to talk to you. and then stiff me.

No, I Will Not Buy You a Drink [Jul. 7th, 2004|01:11 am]

Me: standing by the bar waiting on a couple of beers, running a credit card

??: random customer, no relation to my tables at all, walking up to me at the bar, behind the little "server area" rope

??: Oh, I'll just wait until you're done. I don't want to interrupt you during your transaction
Me: Hi, can I help you with something?
??: Yeah, I want a Coke. (once again, NOT my customer; we're standing at the bar with the bartender across from me, looking right at him)
Bar: A Coke?
??: No, that's ok, she'll help me.
Me: Ok, would you like me to order you a Coke then?
??: Yes [as i turn] that's $2, right?
Me: Almost, it's $2.25, sir.
??: Oh, I only have $2...
Me: Ok... [goes to deliver beers and credit card slip, returns a few minutes later]
??: I'm going to be about 40 cents short...
Me: Oh, I'm sorry. Would you like some water?
??: Yes, 40 cents... I thought I had two dollars... [goes to count again, obviously waiting for me to offer to pay]

so I put in another order and go about my business in the service area

??: So I'm 40 cents short...

Me: I'm sorry sir, I don't have 40 cents to give you.
??: [stands and stares at me, still clearly waiting for me to buy him a Coke]
Me: [starts to walk away]
??: I'm Mark, by the way....
Me: It's nice to meet you Mark, but you're standing in my server area, could you please step back? Thank you. [walks away with beers]
