YOU GOT HATE MAIL!


I got this WICKED awesome response on my blog “Restaurant Rant” I think I have an idea of who wrote it but regardless it was a wicked response. To think a bad day at work rant can make someone so mad enough to write something this long amazes me and is totally what I wanted to do. Get people’s emotions going. NOW The blog was simply a rant and a lot of people who read it and work in the restaurant industry clearly understood where I was coming from. I’m sure from an outsider looking in it seems like I am really lazy at my job. BUT in fact it’s not the case it was a bad day at work with a few things that came to mind when I wrote it. So I’m going to use this person reply and better explain because I forgot to explain it in terms that people looking in from the outside don’t understand.

I made a comment about needy tables.. and explained why and how they can be needy. and this was the response that I got from this mystery replier:

“There are problems with this that have to do with servers A LOT of times. First off, you TRY to ask for things ALL AT ONCE, many of them are TOO LAZY TO **WRITE THEM DOWN**, that includes refills, to-go boxes, to-go cups, the check, extra napkins, etc. Secondly, I have experienced where servers ask ONE person at the table and leave without giving a chance for others to say they want something. It’s not MY FAULT YOU ran off when I COULD have said I wanted something TOO!! Thirdly, extra napkins is something that you should be bringing without having to request that. That’s basic stuff. Kind of like utensils. I shouldn’t have to ask for that type of stuff. Fourthly, HELP YOURSELF, for example, some people order water or water with lemon with an alcoholic drink, ASK the customer “Would you like water” “Would you like lemon as well” “Need any extra lemon”. Fifthly, BE OBSERVANT, maybe they aren’t thinking about what they need at the time due to being in a conversation, so *YOU* can ask THEM if they would need refills. Sixthly, Ask if the customers would like refills without being asked. This way, you get refills to just about everyone that looks like they need another. Seventh, common sense would tell you that if you ask me about dessert, ask me about boxes, the check, a bag, to-go cups, etc. There’s no need to make a separate trip for the check, a separate trip for the box, etc. YOU MADE that happen if you didn’t ask ALL people at once. Now, if they decided later they needed something, that’s not your fault, but at least you can TRY. So quit blaming us, because I try to ask for things at once, but lazy servers don’t write things down to try to remember them nor do they ask everyone at the table if they need something.”

So I guess what I forgot to mention in my rant there is that I didn’t care to get these guests what they need. As a matter of fact I’m happy to do it for them has nothing to do with being lazy. BUT If you have ever worked in a restaurant a day in your life you will realize quick and fast no matter what you do sometimes it’s just not good enough and you have to grin and bear it.  I’m not a lazy server who doesn’t write things down, because quite frankly I like keeping things organized on a pad of paper starting with table number, drinks, apps, meal etc.. It does help too when your in the weeds (which means really busy” and you can just flip through your pad and see the table umber and cross check it with the computer when you get a second to take a break. Napkins are always on the table especially with a meal that is going to get messy (wings/ribs/kids meal etc..). You also claimed that a server sometimes just asks ONE person at the table if they need anything and never give a chance for the other people to reply. I don’t see how that is possible unless its a party of 32, which in that case I’ve went down the table and made sure to ask everyone so I am not missing anyone. But at a table of 2 or even 5 where they are all in this smaller area and no one bothers to answer you? And you ask again and they still give you a look like “is that english”? THEN How is it the server’s fault when they go to the table and then someone needs something? WHEN they JUST asked the ENTIRE table and its usually the person looking at you with no clue on their face. THOSE are the people I meant when I said “needy tables.” I always help myself its how you stay one step a head and don’t get “weeded.” So I don’t need someone telling me how to help myself when I’ve been working in the industry for quite awhile now. I know how to stay on top of things. Its common sense to double check if someone wants water, or an appetizer to start if others are ordering it etc. PLUS usually if one person orders the other one follows in which case helps the server make their quota for the table with the ad ons.  I am pretty observant, and 95% of the time unless its a drink that they have to pay for a refill then that 5% goes to asking them if they would like another drink. ESPECIALLY when they are in conversation, its easier to just do it instead of interrupting and getting their attention. It is common sense to ask about Dessert and what not and follow up with “do you want that packaged” EVERYONE KNOWS THAT. Again not what I was talking about, what I’m talking about is when you ask that and they say no, then you go back and they ask for this, then you do it gladly and then you go back and they ask for something else. You can try and (how did you put it) “Help yourself” all you want but some people just don’t answer the questions that way and wait till last minute or after a few trips. WHICH normally any server wouldn’t care unless its one of those nights where its busy as hell then it gets to be a bit much.

WOWAH okay onward to the next little  issue this particular reader had with my little rant-a-roo!

This next comment they had a problem with was because I mentioned picky people. the ones that come in and change an item completely and expect not to be charged for add ons and such. This is what  the reader had to say about this comment I made:

“I don’t think LAZY ASS SERVERS LIKE YOURSELF SHOULD BE A SERVER IF YOU **DON’T WANT TO ******WORK****** FOR YOUR MONEY!! I can order things the way **I** want them since I should get what ***I*** want for ***MY*** money. Don’t you HONESTLY want what **YOU** want for ***YOUR*** money, huh? That includes the service that the server should be WANTING to make sure you are happy, so then we will make you happy at the end with a good tip. You make us not happy, we have every right to treat you the same way back in the pocketbook where it hurts the most. It’s YOUR JOB to do the things the customer wants. You are at their mercy, not the other way around if you want a good tip. You sound so LAZY ASS to say we should stay home. I don’t expect to be charged if I haven’t been charged before in the pasts, which is a normal assumption if the place never charged for example for condiments, not all of sudden if you want ranch that doesn’t come with the meal, they charge you. If it’s something like an extra side dish, OF COURSE I expect to pay more. I don’t expect to pay more if you didn’t get my order right for things that are YOUR FAULT. Think about it, if the restaurant charges for extra ranch, I ordered that with my meal, being considerate. You end up forgetting it when you could have easily brought it out ahead of time to avoid that. WHY do you feel you should still charge me? You should be asking your manager to COMP the ranch since it’s not a lot of money even, like 50 cents or so or even pay for it yourself. You want our forgiveness in the tip, don’t charge us if you forget something like that. I shouldn’t be charged if you forgot or gave me the wrong side dish for example. WHY should I? YOU MESSED UP, YOU should MAKE-UP for it through monetarily if you want forgiveness money wise.”

They think because I said this automatically I am a lazy server. When in fact I do realize they are paying so they can order whatever they want, and by all means do what makes you happy. BUT I can’t wrap my head around WHY you would come out to eat when you really just want a specific thing? With allll the restaurants in the area (including fast food) I’m sure someone will have something a little closer to what you want. I mean if its an allergy I’m more then happy without hesitation. BUT this comment again was more for when its rammed in the restaurant, the kitchen is pumping out parties and crazy amounts of food and then they have this order that is completely just modified. DID You know its actually harder in a busy situation like that to get you the modified food you wanted then say on a slower day when they probably would be more then happy to do that for you. AND YOU my lovely reader MAY assume when your going to be charged and what not but the MAJORITY of people don’t. I’ve had so many people shocked they were charged for an extra side of something or gravy and believe me the list will go on. SOME places DO charge, as a matter of fact the restaurant I am at does want us to charge for refill chocolate milks and juices for kids meals, DO the servers usually NOT because its something they do for YOU the guest. Or how about that mayo  some people just LOVE to dip their fries in, yup suppose to charge for that too and how many times does that happen. SO you think we are being lazy but in fact we actually don’t charge you for some of the little extras we are suppose to charge you for.  And I don’t know where you got some of your thoughts in this paragraph which take what I say way out of proportion. For instance charging you for an item that you ordered with your meal that you didn’t get. Common sense you wouldn’t be charged for it IF they forgot it.  And I love how you dangle the tip in your paragraph like a dog treat. TO be honest, the reason I work in a restaurant isn’t because of the tips its because the hours are flexible and they are long hours which makes it easier to go to school and work at the same time and be able to make a little extra cash. UNLIKE some servers I don’t look at the tip, it doesn’t dawn on me until the end of the night when i’m doing my cash out. SO for you to say “ YOU SHOULD MAKE UP FOR IT THROUGH MONETARILY IF YOU WANT FORGIVENESS MONEY WISE” just makes me laugh a little. Last time I checked serving was a job where you make sure your guests are full and happy not at your ever beck and call like a dog just to get a few cents change haha!!

ON to the next little part, the only thing this reader agreed with me on is the dine and dashers. Glad to know they don’t steal or D&D on their servers. BUT news flash a lot of people do. probably happens more then you think!

I then made a comment where some people don’t keep their kids under control or leave this humungous mess and don’t really tip.

“First off, I don’t do this, but I will say that most people don’t know about tip outs. Secondly, if the customers have left already, they have PAID FOR THEIR SERVICE, that cleaning up is AFTER the service, so it doesn’t count as PART of the tip. THE SERVICE IS OVER WITH. Do you HONESTLY care about what happens AFTER you have left a restaurant? I pay for what I receive, not for what I don’t receive just as any SMART person would. WHY would anyone pay for services not received, huh? Cleaning up after we have left is just that, AFTER the service is OVER WITH!! Thirdly, if the service sucked, WHO GIVES A FUCK if you have to clean up? WHY should anyone care about you that you didn’t care about them, huh? Caring is a 2-way street.”

Again like I said in my rant tipping is an option, its more of the moral of things. I mean would you go into someone’s house for a get together or a party and let your kids throw food all over the floor or would you stick gum under someone’s table. Probably not right? OR how about someone coming into your house and doing that in your house… you will probably be pretty pissed right? WELL we are told to treat the restaurant as our place, where we entertain guests feed them make sure they are happy and full when they leave. SO when someone does something like that (or worse) I can’t help but go back to “how were they brought up in a barn.” AGAIN that was my point to that little part of my rant. It’s almost like this reader took it as an attack on them because a lot of what they have to write back to my rant is “first off I don’t do this” “I’m not like that” “I would never do this.” I’m not saying you personally I’m looking at the greater picture where the MAJORITY of people do this. If you don’t thats just fantastic.. but that doesn’t account for much.  I get what the reader is sayin as far as if the server didn’t care about them why should they care about the server and a mess. That’s fair but AGAIN in my rant I wasn’t talking about that I was talking about the people who don’t care EITHER WAY! Seems at this point this reader is just picking at everything just to give their fingers a bit of a work out. *smiles* but it was great to read!

This next issue they had with my rant is I mentioned how people roll their eyes at me when the restaurant is backed up and they are annoyed food is taking so long when there is only so much I can do for them at that point. I would rather their food come out cooked then not cooked or half cooked. This is what the reader had to say about this:

“Sometimes though the server is at fault for your food getting delayed. 1. Putting in the order wrong 2. Forgetting to get the food or parts of the food. 3. Forgetting to put in the order. 4. Bringing it out with obvious mistakes wrong that the server didn’t have to touch to notice the mistake. 5. If you are triple or double sat, did you go after each table to go put in the orders or did you hold them in your hand to put them all in at once into the computer? If you did hold them all on the paper before putting them in, YOU have caused the customers to wait longer for their food, NOT ANYONE ELSE!! The longer you wait to put in orders, the longer the kitchen staff doesn’t know about the orders, the longer the food takes, REGARDLESS of HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE THERE OR NOT, because PART of how long we wait for things DOES include WHEN the server puts in the order, if they put in the order right, and what they bring out. You sound SO LAZY ASS to say that you feel it’s annoying. GO FIND ANOTHER JOB AND QUIT FUCKING COMPLAINING! NO ONE MADE YOU BE A SERVER, DID THEY?”

 

Now the issue I wrote about wasn’t the other delays that could possibly happen, staying on point it was about trying to explain to a table WHY their food will be a bit longer and them ROLLING their eyes. I do know why it can take a bit longer liek the examples listed “order in wrong,” “forgetting some stuff” “forgetting the order all together.” I get it, that’s not what I was talking about and 99% of the time IF the server has done that the person WILL be comped and the server DOES own up to their mistakes. Customers aren’t stupid they know when your lying especially if they eat out all the time. Usually AFTER a server is DONE taking about 5 orders at a time they go to the computer and type in their DRINKS, APPS, FOOD. So for them to hold them in their hand makes no sense at all. THE only time they don’t ring in the food right away is when the table has apps because we have to try and time the apps and the food. So to say that its our fault when it takes long makes me laugh. IF you forget to ring in 5 orders your retarded. Because all 5 tables will be at different parts some may want apps some might just want dessert etc.. SO the server HAS to go to the computer regardless after taking those orders.

If i said something was annoying in the comment about being sat 4 or 5 tables at once I wasn’t saying it was annoying on the guests part more on the hostess part because they are ultimately the ones who control the flow of the restaurant. if a server is sat 5 tables of 4. or a party and then a few big tables… obviously you may not be experienced in this field just an outsider with an opinion and looking in (which is great)

And your right no.. no one made me a server.. but quitting and going somewhere else won’t help. I’m assuming you work and have worked for a living, your not sitting on the couch receiving government assistance, or child support, or baby bonus, or mothers allowance or disability right? I’m fair to assume your a working class kind of person. In assuming that your going to sit there and tell me your job is all sunshine and rainbows and there is not ONE thing that annoys you in what you do for a living? REGARDLESS of what job you go to there will always be something that you don’t like. EVEN if its a job you enjoy there will be something, it’s just how it goes. EVEN people who want to be in a certain industry will find things wrong with their job. SO I’m hoping that you have worked before because the last part of your paragraph was just not necessary again seems your fingers needed a bit more of a work out.

I then said in my restaurant rant that its a bit annoying when people pay small bills that are maybe 20 bucks or so and pay it with say 100 dollar bill. THIS is what the reader had to say about that:

“All customers SHOULD want their change. That’s part of your job. YOU SOUND SO LAZY ASS!! Part of the JOB is to get change. You shouldn’t be asking. You should be EXPECTING to get the change. That’s part of why you get your tip, because that’s part of the service. While I understand, that is hard to get 30 people’s change, just know you are getting PAID to do this if you gave good service otherwise if the customers aren’t cheap. They have every right to pay like that if the restaurant accepts high bills like that and you should EXPECT it. EARN YOUR TIP and QUIT BEING LAZY!! The tip is not OWED to you, you **EARN** IT!!”

NOW if you have read my Restaurant Rant blog you will notice I never took being given a tip for granted. I DID say on more then one occasion I’m sure in that little blog of mine THAT I UNDERSTANNDDDD that a tip is an option not expected. SO again this reader clearly just likes to see them self type a little more then they have too. Which is fine just wish they would get their facts straight a little better before ranting about something I never really even said. But onward with my thoughts… It is clearly part of my job to get change for each and ever customer. To be 100% honest I never ask if the guest wants change, even if it comes up 2 bucks I owe them back I just go and bring it to them I NEVER assume that its for me, I NEVER ask them if they need change I JUST give it back . It’s unprofessional to ask “do you need change” at the end … I just say “ I will be right back with this for you.” ASK any of my co-workers they will tell you that’s what I do. HELL ask my boss! You don’t have to regurgitate what my job entitles, I know getting change is part of the job discerption and I appreciate you understanding that its hard to get change for 30 people at one time. MY rant about the change was more for parties of 30 or 40 people who come in and need to be out fast, with the fastest method of payment being either almost exact change or by debit or credit. The people that come in these large parties are usually sports teams who travel a lot and eat out in groups a lot and shocked they haven’t figured it out yet. THATS what my rant was for. NOT getting change for two people or a party of 4 or whatever. Please…  again the last sentence of their paragraph is pretty irrelevant and again uncalled for due to the fact I again never said a tip was owed.

I then made a comment about huge messes and tip nothing.. which is more for large large parties who give you the run around, and they don’t keep their kids and such under control. This is what the reader had to say about that:

“It’s not OUR issue first off that you have to tip out. Remember, **WE ARE TIPPING YOU**, NOT the busser. Secondly, if the customers have left, WTF should they give a flying fuck about what goes on **AFTER** they have left a restaurant? I don’t care WHO cleans or IF it EVER gets cleaned up, because I have LEFT. THE SERVICE I PAID FOR IS OVER WITH!! You are stupid, you really are for customers to consider what YOU have to pay another employee even if it was in our service, which it’s not. That’s YOUR ISSUE, NOT OURS that you have to tip out. We aren’t tipping the busser, YOU ARE, so that’s YOUR ISSUE!! That’s not our problem. Quit being so fucking ass selfish and lazy!!”

I get that its in my job discerption to clean the mess, hell a lot of restaurants just have bus boys and what not to do the clean up, but regardless of what you tip your server a percentage of that goes to everyone else. SO even though your TIPPING THE SERVER NOT THE BUSSER the SERVER still has to split it. I don’t expect a guest to care what goes on after they leave, but it goes back to my point earlier in this write up when I said we treat the restaurant like our home (as we are told to do), therefore WOULD YOU go into someone else’s home and make that kind of mess? WOULD YOU like someone coming into YOUR home and creating that kind of mess? WHAT that comment came down to in my rant was WERE YOU BORN IN A BARN? There is a certain manners to follow when you dine out, if you go to McDonalds (even though its not a restaurant where you have a server) EVEN there you should show some respect. I never said the guest had to CONSIDER what we have to tip out to other people… I was simply educating those who didn’t know that even though you don’t care this is what happens. I was more irritated at the fact that I can’t understand how people can eat like that, and act like that in a public place. MORE SO THEN “poor me i have to clean this mess and get no tip.” LIKE I again said TIPPING IS AN OPTION and not OWED. When I wrote that little bit it wasn’t intended for the tip it was intended for he moral of it all, and the manners people seem to NOT HAVE when they dine out. YOU want me to be polite to you, you be polite to me. LIKE YOU SAID earlier you only give back when you get. I don’t get paid enough to sit there and take peoples crap I’m sorry. And you clearly feel like servers should have to take everything thrown at them. AGAIN how is that being selfish and lazy. EVEN when our kitchen is backed up and make things wrong I still give them the percentage, even though it was there fault that something f’d up. Selfish.. again I think you should step up and maybe work a busy ass night and maybe then you will see where I was coming from. If you are a server, clearly you live in a bubble. haha…

SOOOOO I loved that I was able to jerk someone enough to reply back to a blog of mine. I really appreciated it.

AGAIN the rand was after a bad day at work, like everyone I have good and bad days. MOST of it wasn’t for the common folk that come in, it was more for the other percentage of people to seem to think everyone should be the dirt they walk on. THIS person clearly took offense to some of the things I said. While I appreciate their feedback, some of the comments weren’t accurate due to me not even mentioning some of the issues and points they brought up. I do wish they would have just put their name and email. I mean if I thought I had valid points I would have been proud to say who I was and that, that was my opinion.

It was a good read so I appreciate their contribution.

  1. I just want to say that I don’t agree with the person who commented on this blog. For one I have been in this business for a very long time and I have seen alot and heard alot and have taken quite abit of crap from guests and you my friend could never do this job. I believe that the first rude person you encountered you would tell off and tell them to go fuck themselves,not eveyone can do this job and you my friend are one of them. Not every server is “lazy” not every server “forgets take out boxes” we may chose to do this because of you. You may have been rude or down right mean, why should I take your shit , I don’t get paid enough. Yes, I chose to do this job but how would you feel if I came into your place of business and treated you rudely, it wouldn’t be tolorated would it. We have a hard job and everyone thinks they can do this job better or faster, I would love to have you come into my place and let you do my job and let you see how hard it is, You can’t please all the people all of the time. So think about this and the next time you are out in a restaurant remeber you are not the only person there, try and be nice and you will see that your server will be just as nice to you.

      “try and be nice and you will see that your server will be just as nice to you.”

      I AM, that’s the thing, most servers ARE NOT just as nice to you. WHY did for example, a waitress that forgot my husband’s baked potato when he told her nicely about it, she didn’t say she sorry, huh? Any DECENT human being would. Any considerate human being would have said something instead of looking at the ticket in front of us.

      MOST don’t apologize. At times, some servers remember when they are at my table about for example, ranch I ordered and will tell me they are going to get it without me reminding them even. I was nice, said “Thank you” and ask nicely for things, but when they came back with it, they didn’t apologize for getting an obvious part my order wrong.

      “You may have been rude or down right mean, why should I take your shit , I don’t get paid enough.”

      It’s the servers that start to be rude first. I had one waitress that I asked if I could get 2 sides of mayo filled all the way up and her response was “It depends on what the kitchen measurements are.” I was floored. If she feels like she can’t get me what I want, she should have just taken down my order and gone to ask the manager. Starting a fight with the customer isn’t going to get you a good tip. I wasn’t mean to her at all before this. RIGHT after she said it, she struck a nerve, because it was like she was REFUSING to do as I asked. Sorry, but you can’t refuse. If you think you aren’t allowed, take my order, don’t say anything, and just ask the manager. If the manager OK’S it, then they wouldn’t have had none of that. I basically said to her after that “filled completely just like the ranches” She pissed me off. She was rude first as well when we were greeted in a party of 4, she brought everyone else’s soft drink or tea, but not mine, because the dr. pepper was out. The thing was, a CARING, CONSIDERATE waitress would have ran to our table real quick to ask what I wanted instead. NO, she makes me wait until we all 4 order our entrées to get something to drink. Any considerate server would have wanted all her customers to have their soft drinks and tea at the same time, with NO ONE feeling left out as I did. I would have NEVER been that inconsiderate to have gone to the table to deliver 3 drinks, instead of 4. I would have made an extra trip to ask what the customer wants instead, so the one person wouldn’t be left out. It’s just like bringing entrées together. It’s just common decency.

      Another time, we had another waiter that wasn’t our waiter deliver me and my husband’s entrées. The waiter we had was terrible that was our waiter with no receiving our appetizer, no cup of gumbo I ordered not there yet, forgetting the ranches with my side salad, so when the entrées came from this other waiter, my husband was mad. He just said to this waiter in a bad tone “I need to see a manager now.” I then tell the waiter(so this wasn’t ME being mean now, this was my husband that had done this), “I ordered 3 sides of tartar sauce.” This rude waiter said to me “You would have had to order it with your meal.” I was floored, because I DID order it with my meal, but even though, if someone forgets or decides on ordering a condiment, they do have every right to do it AT ANYTIME. He of course didn’t apologize. It’s not my fault that our waiter didn’t put it on the ticket I am assuming. That waiter shouldn’t have been snippy with me, I wasn’t mean to him. I didn’t say it mean either.

      Another time, I am sick of lazy servers. I got delivered from another waitress that was our waitress missing bacon on an open-faced burger, pickles on the side that I ordered no pickles, and missing ranch. I wasn’t nice that time, because, when you can easily tell there’s that many mistakes, you know they didn’t CARE about WTF they served you if it’s right or wrong. They didn’t compare the ticket to the food, because I know my server didn’t put the order in wrong that badly, especially considering I ordered the bacon extra, extra crispy even. I told this waitress in a mean way(I am not usually like this, but our service wasn’t going well, so I lost my temper that time, rare, but I did that time). I told her “I ordered bacon, no pickles, and I didn’t even mention the ranch since I had some leftover from the appetizer. This waitress said “I’M NOT YOUR SERVER.” Instead of APOLOGIZING to calm me down, NO, she talks back to me, being an uncaring, lazy bitch. I reported her ass to the manager. My point is, most servers are not nice people and are very uncaring.

      My point is, A LOT OF TIMES, it’s the SERVERS that are rude and inconsiderate people.

      The problem is, you can try all you want, telling then “Thank you” and asking nicely for things, that’s not going to make them say they are sorry when they mess up, it’s not.

      I flipped out with that waitress with the missing bacon, because I could easily tell she didn’t give a rat’s ass about what was on the plate that she was SO INCONSIDERATE of the customer as a HUMAN BEING. I understand she wasn’t our server making the tip, but I don’t think anyone wants their order wrong even at fast food restaurants, so WHY are servers like that, so lazy and selfish only thinking about their tables? I had every right to be a bitch back, because she was an inconsiderate bitch to SERVE me food with such an obvious error such as missing bacon on an open-faced burger as well as pickles on the plate. LIKE DUH, bacon is missing. I could tell she didn’t ***TRY*** to serve it to me correctly. She was non-caring, very lazy, and very selfish. You don’t get that it’s mean first by not **CARING** about WTF you are serving me? If it’s a real mistake that they REALLY verified everything, there’s no way in this world for only 2 entrées(my husband’s was ordered “as is”) that if she would have verified the food, there’s no way she would have missed that much stuff being wrong, when I know our server at least put in the bacon part. I couldn’t imagine she wouldn’t have considering I had specific instructions about that I wanted my bacon extra, extra crispy.

      It’s mean to not care about what you are bringing to the customer as far as obvious errors are concerned. If it was a side of ranch missing, not so bad, but 3 duh mistakes, I KNOW she didn’t read the ticket and I KNOW my server put in bacon on the ticket. I doubt my server really messed up putting in the order that badly.

      So it’s just not always true that if you will be nice, they will back. I didn’t do anything to that waitress that brought me the food that I didn’t know from adam for her to not care about what she was serving me for obvious errors. She started being mean first.

      Like

      • I read your response and I would love to know where you go to eat, that the waitress doesn’t say sorry if she has forgotton something relating to your order. Make sure the nest time you go out ask the server to please write it down because of your past experiences, if she is professional she will already be doing it. Do yourself a favor and don’t go out because it sounds like everytime you do you have a shitty time. Take out always works. Not everyone is cut out for every job, some are better doctors, better waste management workers, and myself I am a great waitress. So people like you I laugh at cause you have nothing better to do then bring people down and like I said before “KARMA IS A BITCH”.

    “You also claimed that a server sometimes just asks ONE person at the table if they need anything and never give a chance for the other people to reply. I don’t see how that is possible unless its a party of 32, which in that case I’ve went down the table and made sure to ask everyone so I am not missing anyone. But at a table of 2 or even 5 where they are all in this smaller area and no one bothers to answer you?”

    I didn’t say it happens often, but it DOES happen. This is one example: My husband, my mom, my dad, and I all went to Outback, which I asked for a 6-seater booth, because of drinks(order water or soft drink plus a bar drink as well as many condiments) and it’s more room. So this waiter we had asked my mom that was sitting on the side towards the end of the table and I sat towards the window side, if she wanted another pina colada and he LEFT. I actually wanted to order another margarita. This was only a party of 4 and stupid servers do this shit. I don’t get WHY they want to RUN THEMSELVES. We weren’t in deep conversation either at the time and I was waiting for my mom to finish ordering, but before I could say anything, our waiter rushed off.

    Another example, some servers rush off. I like soft drink or water with a bar drink, well, one time this waiter just walked away before I could order my soft drink as well as the mixed drink I ordered when greeted he was so much in a rush.

    See, my husband and I have been going out to eat almost every weekend just about 2-3 times at times a weekend since Nov. 2000. We have had LOTS of EXPERIENCES with eating out that I bet you haven’t, stuff like getting charged wrong prices or getting the wrong check or getting your credit card rung up on the wrong table, wrong food, missing food, forgotten orders to put in or get, etc.

    “I am pretty observant, and 95% of the time unless its a drink that they have to pay for a refill then that 5% goes to asking them if they would like another drink. ESPECIALLY when they are in conversation, its easier to just do it instead of interrupting and getting their attention.”

    It isn’t your choice though to do so, it’s only THEIRS. That’s why you should be asking when you GREET the customers if they would like refills without being asked. That way, you would know.

    “BUT I can’t wrap my head around WHY you would come out to eat when you really just want a specific thing?”

    Because if you like OTHER THINGS at the restaurant or you actually LOVE the food as well as the bar drinks, that you want that item.

    A good example, would be I love to get burgers, but I order with modifications. I order lots of condiments like sides of mayo, mustard, ranch, bbq sauce, tartar sauce, etc. I also order my bacon extra crispy and my fries with no seasoning as well as them not overdone.

    I don’t like it the way it comes. I like it MY WAY.

    As long as I can get it the way I want it, I like the food, so WHY do you ask a stupid question?

    All restaurants don’t make it quite like that. They don’t have it exactly like that unless you order it that way. The only other way would be to cook it yourself, which I don’t like cooking and I suck at it as well as I LOVE going out to eat. I ENJOY being out the house.

    “DID You know its actually harder in a busy situation like that to get you the modified food you wanted then say on a slower day when they probably would be more then happy to do that for you.”

    You act like I have no common sense or something. LIKE DUH, I know this already if there are more people, it will be more likely my food isn’t going to come out correctly.

    “SOME places DO charge, as a matter of fact the restaurant I am at does want us to charge for refill chocolate milks and juices for kids meals, DO the servers usually NOT because its something they do for YOU the guest. Or how about that mayo some people just LOVE to dip their fries in, yup suppose to charge for that too and how many times does that happen.”

    If you really were supposed to charge, you would do it or risks losing your job.

    No restaurants charge for mayo or mustard. Some charge for ranch such as Hooter’s. I have also once been charged at TGIFriday’s for extra bbq sauce.

    Milk is common sense that it’s not something that can be a free refill.

    If you don’t charge when you are supposed to, do you realize YOU are STEALING from the restaurant by UNDERCHARGING the customer on purpose, huh?

    “Common sense you wouldn’t be charged for it IF they forgot it.”

    I hardly EVER get that though. Once, a waitress forgot my husband’s baked potato, she still charged us as well as didn’t say she was sorry. She even looked at the ticket(this was OUR waitress, not another waitress) and walked off without saying a word. We were very nice to her. She should have been looking at her written order, because she may not have rung it up even. Either way, it was her fault she forgot to bring it to our table. She charged us for it and we didn’t get a comp for it either.

    Most servers don’t care, do you understand that most are in it for the money and they don’t care about YOU as a person?

    “Last time I checked serving was a job where you make sure your guests are full and happy not at your ever beck and call like a dog just to get a few cents change haha!!”

    20%-25% isn’t “a few cents”, it’s dollars and when it’s a high bill, it’s A LOT of dollars.

    You are at our beck and call. That’s what service is. It’s to satisfy US, NOT YOU, US, the customer if you want that money at the end. You say you don’t care about the money, but if you ran your butt off for the customers that you had them even compliment you meaning they really did feel the service was wonderful in their opinion and they stiffed you, how do you feel? I bet you would be hurt, wouldn’t you?

    It’s your job. You are at our mercy if you want our money at the end.

    “I mean would you go into someone’s house for a get together or a party and let your kids throw food all over the floor or would you stick gum under someone’s table. Probably not right? OR how about someone coming into your house and doing that in your house… you will probably be pretty pissed right?”

    These examples of people that are FRIENDS or that you *CARE* about, the servers in general are NOT our friends, they are STRANGERS that don’t care about OUR PERSONAL LIVES. They don’t care if we just lost our job. They don’t care if we just had a death in our family. Get what I am saying?

    You are comparing oranges to apples here. If it’s my house, I would, because it’s my house. If it’s another person’s house, I would, because that’s illegal to do as well as it’s someone we KNOW PERSONALLY that we’d be hurting. We don’t know, nor care WHO is at the restaurant just as they don’t care about us at all.

    You truly can’t compare friendships to strangers, that’s comparing oranges to apples.

    “That’s fair but AGAIN in my rant I wasn’t talking about that I was talking about the people who don’t care EITHER WAY!”

    I understand, but again, if the service is over with, honestly, they shouldn’t have to pay anything. Honestly, people should just clean up after themselves. It shouldn’t be a money issue.

    You said this “say their bill is 150/160 bucks and they leave like not even enough to cover tip out. OH what’s a tip out.. guess you didn’t know that servers have to give a certain percentage of their tips to the rest of the people working that aren’t serving. SOOOOO if they get no tip then… they make probably nothing that night. I know tipping is an OPTION but come on you make this huge mess and then nothing? That’s kinda brutal.”

    You just said this “UNLIKE some servers I don’t look at the tip, it doesn’t dawn on me until the end of the night when i’m doing my cash out.”

    You just CONTRADICTED YOURSELF BIG TIME HERE!! You talk about tip out, basically complaining about that you got nothing or they didn’t leave enough to cover you tipping out, then say you don’t look at the tip. YOU GOT CAUGHT IN A LIE SWEETIE!! Make sure you REREAD your post next time.

    You DO CARE about the money, because your ORIGINAL RANT would NOT HAVE EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER INCLUDED ANYTHING ABOUT TIP OUTS. Think about it. It’s about MONEY, IT SURE IS. YOU CARE ABOUT MONEY, but now saying you don’t, WHAT A CROCK OF SHIT!! What a hypocrite!!

    Then you complain here “happy not at your ever beck and call like a dog just to get a few cents change”, well any money is better than zero. That’s more money you have come up with from your own personal stash if the customers leave you nothing at all. Be GRATEFUL when you do receive something. I was happy when I got a quarter at the donut shop I used to work for back about 10yrs ago(from 1998-2002 off and on, which was a little over 2yrs altogether). A quarter was better than nothing at all.

    “I’m assuming you work and have worked for a living, your not sitting on the couch receiving government assistance, or child support, or baby bonus, or mothers allowance or disability right?”

    I work 40hrs a week in an office.

    “In assuming that your going to sit there and tell me your job is all sunshine and rainbows and there is not ONE thing that annoys you in what you do for a living? REGARDLESS of what job you go to there will always be something that you don’t like. EVEN if its a job you enjoy there will be something, it’s just how it goes. EVEN people who want to be in a certain industry will find things wrong with their job.”

    Yes, you are right, NO job is perfect. The thing is, I don’t have to depend on CUSTOMERS for my income. I will get paid no matter what and I have benefits as well such as paid holidays, vacation, sick days, etc. through my employer.

    At the same time, you can’t expect money from customers for services not received once they have LEFT the restaurant. It’s just unfair. It’s almost like that my employer pays me when I take a vacation day. In a way it’s not fair, but that’s my employer’s choice, but it’s still not getting work for the money I am receiving. When you are a customer, you want work for your money. You don’t want to pay someone that does something that doesn’t benefit you, do you? It doesn’t benefit the customer to have their dishes picked up after they have left if it’s not their house, does it? The customer doesn’t care what happens after they have left, so WHY should you feel they should since the service is truly OVER with that you feel they should be PAYING for ZERO service at that point and time when you are cleaning up, huh?

    “I never said the guest had to CONSIDER what we have to tip out to other people… ”

    YES YOU DID!! Right here: “they leave like not even enough to cover tip out. OH what’s a tip out.. guess you didn’t know that servers have to give a certain percentage of their tips to the rest of the people working that aren’t serving. SOOOOO if they get no tip then… they make probably nothing that night. I know tipping is an OPTION but come on you make this huge mess and then nothing? That’s kinda brutal.”

    Are you not REREADING what you wrote or what? You are going back on what you said now, WHY is that, huh? You said tipping is an option, but come on people, so you ARE complaining about the MONEY that you have to tip out and will be left with nothing. YES YOU ARE DOING JUST THAT!!

    “So for them to hold them in their hand makes no sense at all.”

    They looking at it as ONE TRIP to the computer vs. back and forth when they were double or triple sat. So to them it does, but to the customers that were first, it sure doesn’t.

    “I do wish they would have just put their name and email.”

    My blog name is the on the bottom Springs1. My email is asprings131@yahoo.com.

    I have it listed. Even when you click my name on the bottom of my posts, my blog pops up.

    “I was simply educating those who didn’t know that even though you don’t care this is what happens.”

    If its truly true you don’t care about the money “UNLIKE some servers I don’t look at the tip, it doesn’t dawn on me until the end of the night when i’m doing my cash out”, then WHY bother BITCHING ABOUT TIP OUTS THEN, HUH OR THAT YOU WILL BE LEFT WITH NOTHING, HUH? It’s obviously a partial rant about people that don’t tip well.

    “THAT I UNDERSTANNDDDD that a tip is an option not expected.”

    Then WHY mention tip outs then? Customers don’t need to know this. It’s not our concern or business. That’s the server’s problem and concern, not ours.

    If it’s not expected, then WHY COMPLAIN ABOUT PEOPLE THAT DON’T LEAVE ENOUGH FOR THE TIP OUTS, HUH?

    Obviously, you DO EXPECT IT, otherwise, WHY the RANT about it, huh?

    What a contradictory person you seem to be.

    “fact I again never said a tip was owed.”

    In a way you did, by mentioning tip outs as if we OWE you money for ZERO service since we have left the restaurant already. Any work done AFTER the customers leave isn’t part of the service anymore since the service is over with. So if the customers leave a huge mess and leave, that’s not something during the customer’s service that you have to clean up or the busser has to clean up. That’s the restaurant’s $2.13/hr paying you to do that job. It’s just like restocking. People don’t tip for that either. That’s not part of someone’s service to consider in the tip.

    “Selfish.”

    Selfish in that you expect payment for ZERO service received. THAT is what makes you selfish that you feel customers should have to consider tip outs when they shouldn’t. They shouldn’t have to consider that you have to clean up after they have left. That’s not part of the service for them to consider that at ALL. It’s only fair to pay for WHAT you receive, NOT for things you don’t receive. No one has to and should pay you more money to do something that when they aren’t there to receive that part of the service. That would be morally unfair to pay you for that.

    As I said earlier, I think people should just clean up their own mess before they leave, such as I stack up the dishes to get them out of our way and it helps the server out too. It shouldn’t be about money is my point. YOU made it out to be about money when this issue isn’t about money, because the service is over with, which means there’s no service more to pay for if I am not there anymore, is there?

    Considering tipping out is not something I should have to care about when I go out to eat. I am tipping YOU, MY SERVER, NOT, everyone else that helps you out. That’s on YOU to tip out others and when you said you still tip the kitchen staff for messing up, your employer probably makes you, so you don’t have a choice in the matter, do you? I mean really, WHY would you still pay someone if they messed up your tip, if you weren’t REQUIRED to, huh? Makes no sense at all.

    “again I think you should step up and maybe work a busy ass night and maybe then you will see where I was coming from.”

    I do, but what I am saying is, I feel people should only get paid for their services, NOT for after the customers have left. It’s not fair Joe Schmoe’s party of 4 leaves a mess, has paid, and has left for him to have considered in his tip the amount to leave due to the mess that was left. The cleaning up part is going to be done AFTER Joe Schmoe’s party has left, so WHY should the cleaning up afterwards be considered more money to you, huh? It’s just not fair to pay for ZERO amounts of service. That cleaning up you have to do AFTER Joe Schmoe’s party has left is just that, AFTER the service is done and over with. NO ONE SHOULD PAY FOR ZERO SERVICE.

    “some of the comments weren’t accurate due to me not even mentioning some of the issues and points they brought up.”

    In a way they were, because you were saying about delays with food, but it CAN be your fault even if the kitchen staff is backed up, short handed, or they fixed the wrong food with the order put in correctly before it was ready even, because you could have done something to delay things during that time such as waiting to put in an order or forgetting or putting in the order wrong, etc. Just because our server is telling us about delays doesn’t mean that it was solely the kitchen staff completely for our delay with our food. It could be BOTH of you or maybe a server that tries to hide they messed up was my points of that. My server can still mess up and the kitchen can be backed up or mess up as well all in the same situation. It’s possible. That’s all I was getting at.

    “BUT I can’t wrap my head around WHY you would come out to eat when you really just want a specific thing?”

    My point is, WHY be bothered by this if it’s not for laziness? I am serious here, it’s not your food, so WHY do you care?

    I don’t like the food the way it comes most of the time, so I have many modifications. I know it takes longer, so does a well done steak take a long time as well that I hardly ever steaks just to make you understand that.

    “Make sure the nest time you go out ask the server to please write it down because of your past experiences, if she is professional she will already be doing it.”

    Most do, but some don’t, even AFTER ASKING. I tell them it’s kind of complicated and a lot of stuff that you might need to write it down. One waitress told me “I can remember up to 15 people while we were only 2. She forgot to put in a bar drink order and she forgot my mustard. She didn’t say she was sorry about the mustard. See, I had ordered a soft drink at first when greeted and then decided to get a bar drink as well when we ordered our meals. Well, it was too much to remember. I am surprised she remembered what she did. I even at one point in my ordering process asked “Are you sure you don’t want to write this down?” She assured me she got it. I had a feeling that would happen. Some servers are too lazy and just refuse you. What can you do then other than to ask for a different server if it’s not a busy time, but if it is, you are kind of stuck. Also, if another server is serving you, that means you aren’t in their section, which means most likely you won’t get good service anyway. I know, I have one time asked for a good server that we tipped well 20-25%, most of the times 25% when his section was full(didn’t know that), so the hostess seated us outside of his section. Didn’t get good service that time due to it was too many tables probably and we weren’t right by the other tables in his section.

    My point is, you can’t MAKE the server write it down. I have at times, gave a written order to the servers, which I do find that helps at times, but sometimes it didn’t such as once I was going to give it to the waitress, she REFUSED, forgotten the extra onions on the side I asked for as well as the ranch. That means I had a written order and she refused it. So I can’t make them get my order right. I can only try, but even giving a written or typed order doesn’t help. I wrote in print to make sure they could read my handwriting, which now I do it in a typed order.

    “Take out always works.”

    No, it’s worse. Most of the time it’s messed up either the order taker took the order down wrong even after repeating it back to me even or the person that bagged it that gives it me didn’t check the bag or just missed something.

    “That the waitress doesn’t say sorry if she has forgotton something relating to your order.”

    Just about everywhere. You can sometimes just say nicely “I ordered a side of ranch” for example, mostly ALL servers and definitely even more so, another server doesn’t say they are sorry most of the time.

    Sometimes it’s times where the server remembered at the table. I was very nice in giving my order and asking for things before that, then they remember without me saying, which they don’t say they are sorry then, and then when they come back with it they don’t say they are sorry. I am talking mostly about condiments, but there are times where we have a wrong or missing side dish that they don’t apologize for. Sure, there have been SOME RARE NICE servers that apologize, but they are hard come by.

    See, they don’t want you to take off the tip, so they think by not admitting fault, you will assume it’s the kitchen’s fault, because they think we are stupid, that we don’t have common sense.(I am ONLY talking about mistakes that the customer wouldn’t have to TOUCH the food to notice the mistake, OF COURSE)! The thing is, if they would say they were sorry, their tip would be much better. While it may not be 20%, it’s going to not be as low as if there were no apology at all. For example, 10% tip vs. 15%. It may not be much, but it’s something. The nicer you are, the nicer the customer is probably going to be at the end. WHY don’t servers understand that? I really don’t get WHY they can’t be nice and WHY they feel condiments are EXTREMELY important to the meal? For me, that’s WHY I ordered the meal, to have for example, a burger or sandwich not dry or dipping sauces for the food I have ordered such as fries. That’s what makes my meal taste good, the condiments. I don’t want it the way it comes. I would NEVER bother ordering it if it was like that, NEVER!! I hardly EVER order “as is” from the menu, unless it is something like a pasta dish, which I rarely get that since I find a lot of pastas to have to thin of sauce, which I like a thick sauce. I actually rather pasta roni in a box for a buck than Olive Garden pasta, for real, because it to me taste better. I rarely get pasta though or any dish that isn’t altered in some way.

    ““KARMA IS A BITCH”.”

    That’s why when the service sucks, the tip will too. You get what you give. You give me wonderful service, expect a wonderful tip. You give me horrible service, expect nothing. You give me mediocre service, expect a mediocre tip. You don’t apologize for your mistakes, expect less of a tip than if you did.

    It’s up to the server what kind of tip they want to EARN.

    “So people like you I laugh at”

    WHY? At least I am fair when I tip. At least I am not being cheap if I do have good service. I treat servers the way they treat me. That’s how I determine the tip, by the SERVICE, as it is supposed to be, not an automatic thing.

I am not say that I myself haven’t forgotton a item or two for a guest but 99% of my guest understand and don’t freak out that I have forgotten it,on average you can have up to 20 people in your section and it may happen that at one time everyone wants something and I don’t care who you are you may amke a mistake, go forbid I do that I am only human!!!! You are just as important a guest as everyone else but cut a person some slack. Do you ever praise someone when they get your 32 condiments correct and tell the manager how wonderful they were cause I can tell you that waitress will remember you for the next time and may have all your condments on the table before your order arrives and impress you that way. I bet you haven’t because all you have is negative outlook. I am sure if you tried this approach something good might happen. I have guest that only come to my restaurant who just come to see me, and I can tell you that I have forgotton on more that one occasion their condiments, their coffee or something else yet they all keep coming back, why you ask, cause I put a little thing called LOVE into my service, they come to enjoy the food as well as seeing me and same with me. They feel like they are coming home when they come to my restaurant and thats the main reaxon. So when your waitress has forgotten your ranch or your mayo be nice and connect with him or her and I bet you will see a change the nxt time.

        “I don’t know where you go to eat but I would really stop going there,”

        It’s not any specific restaurants for the most part(sure, we have been to some where every single time it’s not good, so we just stopped going), but mostly ALL restaurants have bad servers.

        “don’t freak out that I have forgotten it,”

        My question is, do you really “FORGET” it or did you not TRY to remember it such as writing down things(even if it’s a refill request for example) and/or not REREADING your pad of paper for your next tasks.

        “I don’t care who you are you may amke a mistake, go forbid I do that I am only human!!!!”

        While I forgive and understand mistakes, I don’t forgive nor understand servers that don’t try their best not to make them. A good example would be if you didn’t write down I wanted a refill and forgot it. Another example, if you wrote down I wanted a side of ranch with an appetizer, but decided to just bring out the food without verifying the order or decided not to bring it out ahead of time to avoid forgetting it.

        Do you understand what a “REAL” mistake is?

        It’s one where you did write down what I asked, where you actually took time to verify WHAT you were bringing me for any errors that you can tell without touching the food or if it’s not food, any errors in your control that you can catch.

        I can forgive real mistakes, but it’s that 9 times out of 10, the servers are too lazy to verify ANYTHING they bring you just about. NOBODY writes down that I want a refill. NOBODY writes down I want a bag or the check, yet, those things get forgotten due to not even TRYING to remember them.

        NOW do you understand my frustration? There’s no excuse to not TRY and if you are one of those servers that don’t write down EVERY SINGLE SOLITARY thing that is asked, then YOU ARE NOT a good server and ARE NOT TRYING YOUR BEST AT ALL. Any good server write down ALL request and REREADS their pad of paper. For bar drinks for example, you would have to put an asterisk by the ones that you have to go back to and go back to them.

        I am not saying I don’t make mistakes, OF COURSE I do. Sometimes it’s even right there in front of you and you mess up, but those things should be rare, not common place as I have done to me and my husband.

        The thing is, at least I would TRY my best if I were a server. I would HAVE to write down someone would want a refill. My short term memory is terrible, so for me, it would be a MUST to write down EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING. I even had a server that I asked for something and she said she’d have to put the plates away in her hand so she could write it down. SMART server that was.

        “You are just as important a guest as everyone else”

        I FULLY 100% AGREE. I am not more important than anyone else.

        “but cut a person some slack.”

        A. When I have seen they TRIED such as writing down what I asked for, that’s when they will get some slack.

        B. When they say they are sorry or if they say they are so sorry(gets even a better tip for being extra nice), they will get some slack.

        C. When it’s not busy and they mess up, I don’t feel sorry for them to give them much slack.

        D. When they are playing around chit-chatting with a friend instead of doing their job when I need them, I won’t give them slack then.

        “Do you ever praise someone when they get your 32 condiments correct and tell the manager how wonderful they were cause I can tell you that waitress will remember you for the next time”

        YES, I do this A LOT, especially on the surveys that are on checks. I also tell managers too at times how well they did.

        “may have all your condments on the table before your order arrives and impress you that way.”

        To be honest, I don’t always order the same foods(that would be boring all the time to do that), so I wouldn’t want that.

        Now, I have had some servers without me asking that KNOW I want the condiments ahead of time, bring them out ahead of time without me having to ask. THAT is something I truly appreciate, but not the bring it before you even know what I am ordering is not cool. Sometimes I could get a burger or sometimes I could get ribs for example, which both have different things that I would want and don’t want, so as long as I get to order and then they bring it beforehand, that would be the way they would get a very good tip.

        “I can tell you that I have forgotton on more that one occasion their condiments, their coffee”

        Did you WRITE DOWN those things? If you didn’t, then HOW can you say you put “LOVE” into your service then, huh?

        Now, if you did write down those things, did you REREAD your pad of paper or were you too lazy to do that?

        Forgetting is forgetting, but if you didn’t try, that’s not forgetting, that’s being lazy. My point is, I don’t know how you serve, but if you forgot that stuff, something tells me you didn’t maybe write down those things possibly? I am not saying you didn’t, because YES, even a grocery lists, I had things before written down, but was in a hurry and just looked over something, but it’s RARE, like maybe that happened 2-3 times in my lifetime. It’s not a everyday thing is my point, because if you go through the lists slowly and carefully of the written stuff, you shouldn’t forget.

        Being that they ask for you and I am assuming they tip you well, WHY don’t you try HARDER then by if you happen to not write down things, START doing so or reread your written order?

        Don’t you get, my beef isn’t with mistakes, it’s with LAZY servers that don’t want to check over the food or even write things down that I asked for that end up messing up an order or forgetting something?

        If things that happened were mistakes, I wouldn’t be on here complaining, because it would be a rare thing, but it’s not rare, because most servers don’t try to verify the things they hand you for things that are in their control.

        I am willing to bet you don’t check the prices on the check against the menu prices, do you?

        We have had many wrong prices over the years and the lazy servers made US find the problem when THEY should have found the problem, then had gone to their manager to fix the problem **BEFORE** handing it to us, but instead servers are too lazy and uncaring to check over the things they hand you, because the only price that they can legally charge is the one on the menu, NOT the computer since we don’t order from a computer.

        That’s one example that shows if you care or don’t care about customers.

        If you don’t check the prices on their check against the menu prices then you don’t put “LOVE”, because anyone that loves their customers, CARES about their MONEY, NOT just YOUR OWN!!!

        “They feel like they are coming home when they come to my restaurant and thats the main reaxon.”

        That’s why we expect our servers to have given us the correct things and not to have to double check them when 9 times out of 10, they don’t check over the things they hand us.

        “So when your waitress has forgotten your ranch or your mayo be nice and connect with him or her and I bet you will see a change the nxt time.”

        HOW? When they don’t say they are sorry 98% of the time? Also, HOW if it’s another server since they aren’t seeing the tip, they don’t give a damn, huh? How, when you know most of the time the servers just SERVE-N-RUN without comparing their pad of paper to the written order. I know, I have seen servers even hand things off a tray without knowing which TABLE WHICH food went to. That’s how bad it is these days. MOST servers in general don’t try their best. I bet you don’t write down when someone wants a refill or the check or a box, do you? You really should, it would improve your tips to not make mistakes, because honestly, if you don’t write down that stuff, then it’s not a real mistake, it’s a LACK OF EFFORT, it truly is. It’s just like not proofreading a report in school and just handing it in, that means you are doing something without TRYING your best to make sure things are right. Most servers don’t try their best, they really don’t.

You go on about lazy servers if you want perfection stay home or go to McDonalds and get it to go. You don’t seem to get it, that even though someone writes down every word you say, from your drinks to your main coarse to your dessert sometimes shit happens and they forget something or another server will run out your food, and they didn’t know you want extra sauce because your server is at another table dealing with someone like you who wants the world. That’s cutting someone some slack when they come to check on you and you let them know you didn’t get your extra sauce, I would say that I am sorry I was dealing with another table who wanted THE WORLD…this job that you think is for lazy people is ranked right up there with Dentist and Air Traffic Controllers as one of the most stressful jobs, so please come to work with me for a couple of days and see if you don’t forget a thing or two. Get off your high horse come down to reality and stay home “WE LAZY” waitress will thank you for not joining us. Have a great day.

      “they didn’t know you want extra sauce because your server is at another table”

      WHY do you think they didn’t? Is it because that server didn’t actually **READ** the ticket or maybe your server didn’t put it on the ticket to begin with or your server TRULY as I TRULY have had RESPONSIBLE, NON-LAZY servers do, to VOLUNTARILY decide to OFFER to bring sauces out *********BEFORE********* the food comes out to ((AVOID)) the PROBLEMS that other servers that aren’t getting the tip do to your tip. YOU EARN YOUR **OWN** TIP, NOT THEM, since they aren’t making the tip. THINK ABOUT IT!! Do *YOU* honestly, truly, COMPARE the tickets to each plate of food to make sure you are handing out the correct food to the customers? I seriously doubt that since it’s not YOUR MONEY on line, am I right or what? If I am, then HOW THE FUCK can you call that “LOVE”, HUH? Well, I am waiting?

      It doesn’t matter if they are at another table for sauces, because MY SERVER, YES, MY SERVER, IS the ONLY PERSON **MAKING THAT TIP**, so honestly, WHY should you depend on a person that ISN’T making a tip to do YOUR JOB that they **ARE NOT EVER GOING TO GET PAID FOR** from the customer. Even if you tip out a food runner(which most restaurants have servers running each other’s food), but let’s just say you tip out, we aren’t TIPPING that person though, YOU ARE, so YOU get to DECIDE YOUR OWN DESTINY of WHAT TYPE OF TIP YOU GET BY YOUR ****EFFORTS***** by OFFERING to AVOID SOMEONE ELSE OR YOU FORGETTING SAUCES. SAUCES ARE NOT SOMETHING THAT TAKES MORE THAN 5-10 minutes even to get possibly less time if it’s not a lot such as if it’s one side of ranch, it’s like 2-3 minutes at most. QUIT MAKING LAZY ASS, UNCARING, NON-LOVING EXCUSES for sauces. Sauces, there are no excuses for forgetting them by the time the food comes. You have PLENTY of time, PLENTY of time to get them **BEFORE** the food arrives. Especially, if it’s an entrée, you have A LOT of time.

      That server that doesn’t have the sauces COUNTS as part of the tip that didn’t apologize(just about almost 100% of the time since they aren’t your server, they don’t give a shit at all) and they were too lazy to read the ticket. Even a waiter at an Applebee’s I had gone to years ago told me when my 2 sides of mayo, 1 side of mustard, 1 side of ranch, and one side of bbq sauce wasn’t with my bbq chicken sandwich that “They are too lazy to read the tickets” when the waitress brought it out without all those condiments. His tip was 12%. WHY? Blamed it on that waitress when (((HE))) had 100 BILLION PERCENT FULL CONTROL over that issue COMPLETELY. My bacon wasn’t extra crispy as ordered when it was hanging out the sandwich to where the waitress could easily tell if she was delivering the food correctly or not if the ticket was correctly put in, which it SOUNDS like it was. It doesn’t take no 25 or more minutes to get some condiments, GET FUCKING ASS REAL. Don’t blame it on the waitress that wasn’t making a tip, WHY should she care? She ain’t getting a tip from us to give a flying fuck. Our waiter was, so HE should have offered to bring those out ahead of time just as some servers have done for me in the pasts. Even at times when it was busy, a waitress did that at a Chili’s and she got 28% tip. You EARN your tip and **CARE** if you make the customer GET the mistake, then YOU WILL GET YOURS.

      It’s up to YOU, YOU ALONE, TO *EARN* YOUR OWN TIP, NOT DEPEND ON THAT RUNNER. That person is NOT getting part of that tip whether it’s right or wrong to get a reward or penalty from it, but *YOU* are.

      QUIT FUCKING BLAMING SAUCES ON ANOTHER SERVER WHEN **((YOU))*** are THE PERSON THAT IS MY SERVER **EARNING** THEIR TIP!! That’s not their job since they aren’t getting part of that tip. YOU EARN YOUR OWN FUCKING ASS MONEY JUST AS A WAITRESS at Chili’s got her 28% tip. She VOLUNTARILY decided to tell me “They aren’t going to have all of that, could I bring it out ahead of time” she said to me. She did as she said. SHE **EARNED** her tip and it was a BUSY 8p.m. or so SATURDAY NIGHT that we had to wait for a table even around 30-40 minutes even. SHE did it, WHY THE FUCK NOT YOU, LAZY, UNCARING, AND UNLOVING BITCH? YET, you say you put “LOVE”, SHE DID, YOU DON’T, SHE DID!! That’s why SHE got a VERY GOOD TIP AND YOU WOULDN’T, because you want to depend on others that shouldn’t be doing your job since they aren’t getting **PAID** to do your job, YOU ARE, remember that!!

      “I hope you never come to my place of work because I may get fired for telling you off.”

      Telling me off for being HONEST that most servers don’t TRY their best. Do you truly REREAD WTF you wrote down? For real, DO YOU?

      WHY write it down if you don’t, huh?

      “that even though someone writes down every word you say, from your drinks to your main coarse to your dessert sometimes shit happens and they forget something”

      I did say that, by admitting even I *RARELY* have had things on my grocery lists I had on the list, but didn’t see, but it’s RARE, NOT a common thing is my point.

      “I would say that I am sorry I was dealing with another table who wanted THE WORLD”

      Whoever asked for what first gets what first. That means, let’s say if I asked for 5 condiments with my entrée, that means if the table that just got seated is asking for a shit load of stuff, guess what, MY TABLE ASKED FIRST, so YES, WE COME BEFORE THEM in terms of their things they asked for. Now, if they asked for stuff first, then THEY come first. Get what I am saying? BE FAIR and I will be fair to you. If you aren’t fair to me, I won’t be towards you in the tip. It’s that simple. I treat you as you treat me in the tip.

      You never answered, “DO YOU WRITE *ALL* REQUEST DOWN LIKE REFILLS, TO-GO BOXES, BAGS, EXTRA NAPKINS, MORE BREAD, THE CHECK, ETC.?” I bet you don’t, right?

      If you don’t, you don’t show love, you don’t. THAT’S FUCKING BULLSHIT!! LOVE is writing every single solitary thing down by at least **TRYING** by REREADING those tasks that were written.

      A good example, at a restaurant I do as many servers do seem to like to ask for many things at once so they aren’t ran, yet, most servers are like you that don’t SEEM to be willing to write down small tasks, so this is what happened:

      I asked for a to-go box, a bag, the check, and a to-go coke. This is only 4 things and if she would have TRIED to remember them BY WRITING IT THE FUCK DOWN, her tip would have been higher just on the fact at least she would have **TRIED** by writing it down and forgotten, but she didn’t write it down even to TRY to remember them. She forgot the bag and didn’t even say she was sorry. I just asked for a bag again without mentioning I asked for it before and then she remembered that she forgot it. See, I don’t tip lazy ass, uncaring excuses for a human being well by them doing that type of stuff. They get a good tip by at least TRYING and then REREADING their written tasks to see OK, such-n-such asked for a box, the check, a bag, and a to-go coke. If more servers would WRITE THE THINGS DOWN, service would be A LOT BETTER, because honestly, 9 times out of 10, you aren’t going to mess up like you are if you haven’t written it down. Sure, you can, but it’s less likely, is my point.

      WHY NOT TRY TO WRITE DOWN EVERY TASKS? That’s what GOOD servers do. I don’t expect you to remember what I said. I expect you to write it down and check over your written order. If you do forget, it shouldn’t be too many items if you wrote it down honestly. I don’t see a way it could be if you have it written down.

      Don’t blame another server for sauces since YOU are earning a tip from the customer, NOT that server. It’s not that server’s fault I didn’t get my sauces, that’s yours if you are my server, especially if it’s not a ticket, even more so.

      I don’t get WHY you feel that another server has something to do with sauces? Sauces are MY SERVER’S RESPONSIBLY ONLY since that type of thing needs 1-2 minutes at most for 1-2 sauces prepare time, so if I only order a side of ranch with an appetizer, if another server runs the food, I should have my ranch delivered by my server, not by another server, because that server has their own tables they are making true money off of, not ours.

      DO YOU HONESTLY, HONESTLY, check EVERY PLATE that isn’t YOUR TABLE’S FOOD, HUH? I am willing to bet you don’t, so if you truly don’t, HOW can you expect someone else to? Let’s say you do, still HOW can you expect someone else to if they aren’t seeing the reward or punishment for getting it write or wrong to the table since it is a sauce that COULD have been PREVENTED from being forgotten by bringing it out ahead of time, huh?

      It’s my server’s responsibility to get my order right as far as condiments go, nobody else’s responsibility since they aren’t making the tip, don’t ya think that’s fair, huh? If I was running your food if I were another server, WHY would it be fair I should spend time reviewing your table’s food if I am not getting any compensation for it or if I am, it’s automatic like a tip out regardless so WHO CARES if I mess up, get what I am saying here?

      It’s funny how you NEVER answered that if you write down EVERY SINGLE THING, because I bet you sure don’t, do you? I have NEVER encountered a server doing that, honestly, because some servers do have a good short term memory they are just good at the job and others have a bad short term memory so they end up forgetting stuff. Either way, you seem like you are like me, suck at remembering, so you should write little requests down like refills, you really should if you forget someone’s coffee even. Did you even write that down when you forgot that person’s coffee out of curiosity if you remember, huh? If you didn’t, that’s not showing “LOVE”, is it? You also neglected to answer if you check the customer’s prices on their check against the menu prices. I bet you don’t do that either, do you? SHOWING TRUE “LOVE” IS ***CARING**** ABOUT WHAT THE FUCK YOU HAND THE CUSTOMER FOR ERRORS THAT YOU TRULY CAN CONTROL FROM GETTING TO THE CUSTOMER’S TABLE. THAT IS YOUR JOB!! THAT’S WHY WE TIP YOU AND NOT SOMEONE ELSE LIKE THE PERSON THAT RAN THE FOOD OBVIOUSLY WRONG OR THE MANAGER OR CORPORATE THAT DIDN’T HAVE THE PRICE CORRECT IN THE COMPUTER THAT YOU COULD HAVE EASILY CAUGHT **BEFORE*** ME!!

      “LOVE” is CARING and it looks like you have ZERO LOVE and are LAZY IF YOU ASK ME. You can’t see that? Are you blind or just don’t want to admit that fact, huh? Love is caring about the customer, not just handing us anything and not caring about if the sauces aren’t going to be there from someone else that isn’t going to care anyway, when I bet you don’t care when you deliver another table’s food if it’s wrong or not as far as anything obvious, right? SO WHY expect it back then and even if you do, they aren’t getting paid to give a care. Think about it. This is a one for one world. There isn’t any teamwork really in restaurants today honestly, it’s rare if there are any people that work as a team. It’s a doggy dog world full of selfish lazy servers for the most part.

      NO, I wouldn’t, because I KNOW how *I* feel, that’s why. I am not lazy like you seem to be and you still never said you check things like the check prices against the menu prices or the food for each plate or that you write down ALL requests, because you are TOO LAZY to do those things, right?

      What “bullshit”, the GOD’S TRUTH of what it means to be a GOOD server by your PREVENTING the problems from getting to your table if it’s something in their control?

      That’s not bullshit, that’s the GOD’S TRUTH and YOU KNOW IT!!

      “I think that from now on you should bring your own fucking condiments with you cause they seem mighty important.”

      WHY, when I go to the restaurant ESPECIALLY for the ranch that they have that I cannot buy in the store or bbq sauce or tartar sauce? I could bring mayo and mustard, but WHY when I’d have to pay for that when I don’t have to at the restaurant, that would be stupid of me? Also, I have brought my own mayo and mustard a couple of times to a bar that served food for my burger, which YES, it IS EMBARRASSING to bring your own. It looks weird and it IS STRANGE. IT also costs money and is VERY MESSY to do that. Also, if you aren’t coming straight from your own house, you’d have to take an ice chest with you in order for mayo not to go bad since there’s no way I would be buying a really small bottle since that costs wayyyy too much money to buy the smaller 18oz bottle when I buy the 30oz one.

      Also, if I am willing to PAY YOU, WHY should I not get the service I am paying for out of you, huh?

      “As far as I am concerned I am a FABULOUS and WONDERFUL waitress, I have won service awards prizes for years of service, customers have given me gifts and spectaular tips for my service, so I know I am no “LAZY ASS SERVER” you my friend are a piece of work.”

      That’s fine, you are conceited and you have people that forgive you for your laziness, but YOU ARE LAZY if you don’t WRITE DOWN ALL requests, COMPARE the written orders or tickets to the food, and if you don’t compare the prices on the menu to the check prices. It’s laziness to not AVOID a problem from getting to the customer’s table.

      It doesn’t matter if you won awards or got gifts, that’s their OPINIONS of you. That doesn’t mean you really ARE a good server if you mess up as you said you did forgot coffees and condiments. WHY did you do those things? Was it because you didn’t even TRY to remember those items by WRITING them down or going back to your pad of paper to REREAD the orders, huh?

      It is the GOD’S TRUTH that anyone who doesn’t take 100% FULL EFFORT is being lazy and you can’t say you aren’t if you don’t do those things I said. THAT IS THE TRUTH, NOT AN OPINION, THAT IS A FACT that by deciding NOT to check over things is being uncaring and lazy.

      “the 5 bucks your going to leave me cause I didn’t bring you your ranch dressing isn’t going to put me in the poor house.”

      No, but it’s going to treat you as you have treated me if you get a lowered tip for not trying your best. $5 bucks on what amount? A $20 check, that’s a good tip $5. If the check is $50, no, but if you just forget the ranch and fix it in a timely manner even if you don’t apologize 12%-15% is what you would get, not just $5, which if it was a $50, that would be a bit higher. I just recently tipped a waitress 15% when she forgot my ranch and they had a pickle on the plate when I asked for no pickles.

      I don’t care about if it doesn’t put you in the poor house, I care about treated you the way you treated me. You treat my order like crap you deserve a crap tip. If you treat my order like it was yours like GOLD, I will treat your tip like that. This christmas I just gave 2 of my favorite servers $20 a piece just for christmas. They showed me they CARE about getting my order right and actually TRY their best. They show me they CARE. It’s all about the way you treat me. You don’t try your best, don’t expect a good tip is what I am saying.

      Good servers don’t try to remember from memory if they are bad at remembering short term memory things.

      “I have servered people like you and to be honest, pending if your first impression to me is nice I will bend over backward to make your dinning experience great, but if it’s not and you start out as and ass, guess what You my friend will be treated like you an ass cause nothing I do will please you,”

      How come we have had servers that please us, huh? It was MY idea to give these servers extra money. My husband agreed, but it was MY decision, because they are the complete opposite of you. They work hard and make sure I have my condiments. They *CARE*, YOU DON’T!!

      I won’t treat you like an ass at first if you don’t treat me like one. Heck, I have even said MANY of times “Thank you” to servers when they have forgotten my ranch and they didn’t ONCE be nice enough to apologize. You would think, I am being polite over a mistake, WHY can’t they since they CAUSED the problem, but NO, they want to be mean, so when tip time came, less was in their tip than if they would have said they were sorry.

      “I would rather have a table of 12 year old hockey players yelling and screaming than deal with the likes of you.”

      Because you are too LAZY AND UNCARING to CARE about GETTING ORDERS AND CUSTOMER’S CHECKS CORRECT TO THE TABLE, because you only care about yourself!!

      I would rather have a server that WRITES DOWN EVERYTHING and gets my order right than have someone that is too lazy to write things down, then forgets them, ANYDAY. The money is all worth it. It’s not about the money, it’s about that I want NOTHING to go wrong and you have MANY WAYS to PREVENT the problems. It’s YOUR CHOICE to be LAZY AND UNCARING. If you don’t write down I want a refill and then forget, that’s LAZINESS AND BEING VERY UNCARING on YOUR PART 100 BILLION PERCENT. WHY CAN’T YOU SEE THAT, HUH?

    “You must be the most perfect person in the world wha has never made a mistake or forgotton anything,”

    I NEVER said that and I even said, OF COURSE I make mistakes, but I ***TRY** my VERY BEST, which YOU DON’T is the difference.

    If I were a server, I would write down refill requests for example. While, yes, I may not see it on my pad of paper, but chances are, there would be a MUCH, MUCH, MUCH BETTER CHANCE of me remembering it compared to if I didn’t AT LEAST GIVE IT MY ALL BY TRYING MY VERY BEST BY WRITING IT DOWN TO TRY TO REMEMBER IT.

    Why don’t you try what I am asking, huh? Wouldn’t you rather NOT make mistakes, huh? WHY be so LAZY to decide not to write it down? It is lazy if you choose to not write down something and then forget. Do you understand as a customer how it feels? It’s IRRITATING even more when your server is too lazy ass to CARE to REMEMBER WTF you are asking for.

    “you talk about servers who don’t check the ticket for the correct price of the meal, where do you go that they change the prices that often that you have to check it everytime, where I work we don’t have to do that.”

    You do have to do that. It’s part your of job. I have had wrong prices A LOT of places, such as Outback, Hooters, Fox and Hound, etc. You never know that the corporate people can change the prices BEFORE the new menus arrive or your manager could change a price without realizing it’s wrong.

    YOU ARE UNCARING AND LAZY, plain and simple. If I were a server, I would ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, since it’s happened to us MANY of times compare the prices on the menu and the check. Get this, on a vacation 2 yrs ago, we had 2 wrong prices. One was a FINE DINING restaurant of $2, the other was a mexican restaurant that was local in that area that was off by 25 cents. YOU DO have to, because otherwise, if the customer gets a wrong price, it’s all YOUR FAULT if you hand them their check. You can read too and you are supposed to *EARN* your tip, not be lazy and uncaring like you are.

    You have to do it EVERYWHERE. As I said, a 3 day vacation, we got overcharged on prices twice.

    My point is, it’s not as rare as what you think.

    “You say I am uncaring and lazy because I don’t write everything down, give me a break, you are a nightmare!!”

    YOU SOUND SO LAZY ASS AND UNCARING, it’s PATHETIC!! You want a break, so that’s why you are asking for one, because you don’t want to *****WORK***** for your money. You want to be LAZY as well as uncaring by not checking over things and by not writing things down.

    “You have to walk a mile in someone elses shoes to be able to judge that person so before you go off and rant about writing shit down or getting you your 15 condiments think about it, I would love to have you work a day with me and see if you can do this job,”

    I would act like the customer I am if I served you. I would want a good tip, I am caring about others, and I am not lazy like you are.

    I would check things over, not just GUESS they are right like you do.

    Obviously, you aren’t in a customer’s shoes very often to understand how irritating it is to get things wrong when you go out to eat, am I right? If you do, you must not order modified orders, so you don’t have as many problems then to fully understand, am I right about that? Also, since you are so lazy at your job, you probably don’t compare the menu prices to your OWN check when you go out to eat, do you? You should, you really should.

    ““I don’t have to do your job, you just do your job right” that’s probably what you are saying to yourself right now well aren’t you?”

    No, I am not. If anything, there would be no servers if no one did the job. It’s the fact that you won’t TRY your best. THAT is what pisses me off.

    For example, when a waitress once took our drink order(this was in 2006), I ordered a margarita with a certain tequila on the rocks with salt and a dr. pepper. My husband ordered a soft drink as well. She comes back with the margarita to come to get our food order and I go into her(I don’t normally do, but she pissed me off, because she was too LAZY TO WRITE DOWN the order), she forgot the dr. pepper. So I said “You didn’t know I ordered a dr. pepper”, which she responded “I forgot, sorry” kind of pissy. The thing is, if she would have written it down, I would NOT have been so pissed off about it. The fact that people like you are too lazy to CARE to TRY to remember something. Of course, the rest of the service she wasn’t nice, but she wasn’t nice FIRST, so she deserved it by not WRITING DOWN what I asked for. When you forget and don’t write it down, I don’t feel sorry for you when you get that lousy tip that you weren’t a CARING, DECENT person to GIVE A CARE if you gave me good service or not, because good service is getting things correctly to the table. Even if she would have forgotten the dr. pepper if she would have written it down, I would NOT HONESTLY been as pissed and would have been much nicer towards her about it by saying nicely I ordered a dr. pepper instead of saying “You didn’t know I ordered a dr. pepper.” That was DESERVED for her being so uncaring if she has a lousy short term memory that she should KNOW she needs to write down drinks, not just food orders.She caused her own 10% she got, because she made me wait until she rung up someone else’s check that gave it to her after I had ordered my dr. pepper, which was 11 minutes, even though I had beennnn having my margarita already there. She also was didn’t get the amount of condiments correct. She asked in the middle of me not even half-way through my meal if we were ready for the check twice. Yes, she was trying to get us out of her section, but SHE CAUSED the situation. If she would have written it down, she probably would NOT have forgotten. She was too lazy and too uncaring like people like you. YOU HAVE TO CARE IF YOU WANT US TO CARE ABOUT YOU AT THE END OR EVEN THROUGH THE SERVICE.

    As I said, from the start, she wasn’t nice to not write it down. I shouldn’t have to ask the server to write it down. They should be ready to write anything, because you don’t know WTF we are going to order or what AMOUNT of stuff we are going to order.

    “I hope I have my pen and paper ready so I don’t get that shitty tip.”

    That’s right, I will treat you just as you are treating US, like YOU CARE about remembering what we said. You need to if you suck at short term memory situations. I suck at short term memory situations such as remembering names or even orders. At times when I was young 21yrs old(I am not 33yrs old), I had a counter help job. I couldn’t remember if ONLY ONE customer ordered a combo meal if they wanted cheese or if they wanted cajun or regular fries by the time I would get from the booth or at the end of the counter to the register. My short term memory is VERY BAD, so my point is, being a customer a lot since Nov. 2000 when I met my husband, we have been through a lot. I know see it from a customer’s point of view of how BAD it looked. We have been going out to eat just about every single weekend 2-3 times a weekend since. Do you realize how many situations we have been through? I know a lot about restaurant service, because when you are the CUSTOMER, you see what could have been done better and that I should have ALWAYS wrote down one order. YES, I was too lazy to do that at the time, I ADMIT, but I can’t change my pasts, but if I had to work there again or if I worked as a server, I would DEFINITELY write down everything. See, at this donut shop I worked for back then which served as I mentioned regular food items like burgers, fries, etc., we didn’t have apron pockets, so it was an issue that if we would have had an apron pocket for the workers in front(the back people did wear aprons, not the front counter people), I would have had one at all times, but if I had the pad of paper wayyy over another area, it was trouble so I didn’t write it down thinking I am going to remember it, but I usually forgot something they said. You may call me a hypocrite, but I have had different experiences since that I would write down things if I did that job over again. I would not have done something like that. At the time I worked there, I hardly EVER went out to eat, because my mom cooked a lot and if we did, it was usually either fast food or something like Denny’s at 6a.m. in the morning where there was hardly anyone there to get bad service most of the times.

    My point is, until I was a CUSTOMER I NEVER KNEW HOW IT FELT TO GET THE WRONG FOOD WHEN YOU ARE IN A TIPPING SITUATION, unlike when you go to a fast food restaurant like McDonald’s. So if I didn’t know how it felt to be a customer, then that’s why I did the job as I shouldn’t have and gave people bad service by having to ask them again and again what they said.

    I bet you have NEVER had a wrong price, have you? I bet you wouldn’t even know if you ever did, because you are too lazy to check your own check against the menu, right?

    My point is, if you have NEVER had it happen to you from the other side as the customer, how will you know how to properly serve if you haven’t been in that situation as a customer before, huh? I know more stuff about serving than you do, because I bet you would have never even thought about prices being wrong on the check vs. the menu price, would have you?

  11. Listen, I have never in my entire life ever come across a person such as you. You have labled me as Lazy and Uncaring because I don’t write everything down and a bad waitress because I don’t check the prices to the menu, are you for real????? First off I use a pen and paper to write down orders, when needed, I don’t check the prices on your cheque because 10 out of ten times it is correct, but I bet your ass that if the price is lower on your cheque you don’t come running to me to tell me that or if I have forgotton to ring in your coffee or pop you don’t tell me that either do you? I have been a customer once or twice in my life and I am one of the nicest customers because I understand what my server is going through, they have forgotton refills and ketchup but despite that if they have a great peronality and worked hard I give them 15 to 20% because they deserved it,I wish you would understand that going out should be fun and relaxing , not a struggle everytime. It seems to me that you should save yourself the trouble and just stay home, you can’t seem to get what you want in a server, how about if you choose to go out ask the waitress if you can go to the computor with her and ring in your own order that way if it gets fucked up you only have yourself to blame. Thank you.

    “are you for real?????”

    OF COURSE, I am. I am tired of the lazy and uncaring servers like yourself that don’t try your very best to get things correctly to the customer’s table.

    “First off I use a pen and paper to write down orders, when needed,”

    But, you said: “I have forgotton on more that one occasion their condiments, their coffee”, exact words from you, so obviously, if you didn’t write those down, that’s NEEDED, isn’t it if you can’t remember without writing things down all the time, huh?
    “I don’t check the prices on your cheque because 10 out of ten times it is correct,”

    NO, it’s because you are VERY *******UNCARING********* AND TOO *******LAZY********* to verify the checks against the menu. You never said, do you check your OWN when you are a customer?

    “but I bet your ass that if the price is lower on your cheque you don’t come running to me to tell me that or if I have forgotton to ring in your coffee or pop you don’t tell me that either do you?”

    No, but I tip you better. The reason why I don’t, is because that’s part of the service that you would be punishing OUR TIME. It’s not our issue if you underrang something. YOU have to pay for it if it’s short. That’s YOUR ISSUE. You don’t care about our money, so WTF should I care about yours?

    Think about if I would tell the server every single time this happens? First off, we get soft drinks on PURPOSELY left off the bill. Ask most servers out there, they do it to get a higher tip that “Gee, she was nice enough to not ring us up for the soft drinks, let’s be more forgiving in the tip for her mistakes” is what they hope.

    If I did do that, think of the PUNISHMENT of TIME they would be giving us. That means we’d be held hostage to leave and we have ENOUGH of that when we get an overcharge. One time, I waited 10 minutes to get a 30 cent overcharged fixed. Do you feel that’s “GOOD” service to make me wait for someone to fix the check WHETHER it’s in our favor or their favor?

    It is the SAME IRRITATION and TIME punishment to wait to get a check fixed whether it’s an overcharge or an undercharge.

    One time, a former co-worker told me that his wife’s entrée wasn’t on their check. He asked the waitress “Would you rather a higher tip or fix this”, guess which one she chose. THE HIGHER TIP is what the waitress chose.

    Another former co-worker told me if she had a soft drink not rung up, she’d just leave it in the tip, so she wouldn’t have to go through the trouble of getting it fixed. I don’t blame her.

    NOBODY WANTS THE HASSLE AND TIME PUNISHMENT TO GET A CHECK FIXED no matter WHOSE favor it’s in!!

    So you feel you should get a good tip if I show you let’s say you forgot to ring up a side dish that I should have to wait for you to ring up the side dish and reprint the check? That’s NOT GOOD SERVICE if you PUNISH MY TIME. YOU CAN’T SEE THAT?

    When we don’t get something rung up, if we get wonderful service, we tip based on what the bill would have been, even including taxes(I know the tax rate here) and they get a wonderful tip, which could be 20% or over which, really is over 20% automatically of the discounted bill.

    If we get bad, horrible service, I don’t give a care just as they didn’t care about us.

    If we get not to great service, but OK that we would have tipped 10%, I won’t include the thing they didn’t ring up since they didn’t care about us.

    If they did a decent job, but not wonderful, such as 15%, we will add in what the bill would have been and tip accordingly, which means the discounted bill will look like it’s something like 17% or so, but it’s really 15% of the original bill.

    We get stuff free all the time, whether on purpose or not, if they did a good job, it goes in the tip. We could tip based on the discounted amount always, but we are at least fair if they treated us fairly.

    We should not have to be punished with our time to hold US up, just because YOU underrang something. That’s not our problem.

    Also, a few times RARELY, prices have been a little lower than what was on the menu. Once, we went to a mexican restaurant out of town, the margarita was 25 cents more on the menu than our check. Even if I would have presented this, they wouldn’t have worried about it. It’s more trouble than it’s worth and they wouldn’t want to piss off customers to punish their time to hold them hostage so the manager has to come to fix it since it’s a price issue. Think about it.

    WHY should we present this when it’s not OUR ISSUE if you underrang something? Even to my best servers, they know if we don’t get something rung up, we tip WAYYY MORE, so in a sense we cover the costs of the item to those servers that have been good to us. They know, if they punished our time, they wouldn’t have a good tip.

    WHY do you feel we have to BABY-SIT YOU ALL? Customers, as you said, are there to have FUN and RELAX, NOT deal with check fixing issues. WHO THE HELL GOES OUT TO EAT FOR THAT CRAP? It’s YOUR ISSUE if you don’t ring something up. Chances are, you or anyone may not end up catching it, so you may not even have to pay for it out of your own pocket even or your manager may not make you, either, way, I HAD TO PAY WHEN THE REGISTER WAS SHORT($2 or $3 leeway, I can’t remember which, if it was 2 or 3 dollars), but after that, they’d take the shortages out of our checks. If I HAD TO DO IT, WHY SHOULDN’T YOU? I was a worker too that short the register by sometimes hurrying or when other people would work with me, sometimes the register was short, so they split it between people. On Sunday mornings(the church crowds), we would have up to 6 people working at the counter, so if it was short, they’d split it 6 ways if it was over $2 or $3.

    So it’s not our time and we shouldn’t get held hostage over YOUR ISSUE when you certainly don’t give a flying fuck about our money since you admitted you don’t check the prices, so FUCK YOU and YOUR MONEY just as you are telling us. See, in order for the customer to care about your money, YOU HAVE TO, HAVE TO, HAVE TO, CARE ABOUT THEIR MONEY, otherwise, WTF should they care about yours?

    Remember, servers are at the CUSTOMER’S MERCY since YOU ALL want OUR MONEY, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND!! That means I don’t have to care about your money if you don’t care about mine.

    “they have forgotton refills and ketchup but despite that if they have a great peronality and worked hard”

    They don’t work hard if they don’t TRY to remember things by WRITING THEM DOWN. ALL I am asking is for you to to some **EFFORT** into your job instead of being too lazy to write things down, that’s all. If you forget after writing it down, at least you TRIED, get what I am saying?

    WHY don’t you take my advice? Don’t you want a BETTER tip than what you end up getting? Let’s say you already get 25% from someone, they may tip you 30%, you never know if you did a good job.

    WHY aren’t you willing to try your best? I am just curious WHY the laziness and the being uncaring about your customers?

    WHY refuse to try your best, huh?

    “I have been a customer once or twice in my life”

    That’s EXACTLY why you just DON’T UNDERSTAND. If you were a customer as often as we are, you’d feel what I am feeling, frustration of servers that aren’t WILLING to TRY their best, but yet, they want that money at the end. I don’t get that, I REALLLY, REALLLLY, don’t?

    “I give them 15 to 20% because they deserved it,I wish you would understand that going out should be fun and relaxing , not a struggle everytime.”

    That’s the POINT, I don’t WANT THE FUCKING PROBLEMS AT OUR TABLE IF MY SERVER CAN SOMEHOW PREVENT THE PROBLEMS BY AT LEAST TRYING THEIR BEST NOT TO GET THEM TO OUR TABLE!! I don’t go out to eat to get my food wrong or get an overcharge, WHO THE HELL DOES?

    “you can’t seem to get what you want in a server”

    I do at times, even many, but it is rare, because many servers are lazy like you are that don’t give a damn if you mess up someone’s dining experience or not.

    “I understand what my server is going through,”

    You understand the lazy servers out there, I know, you are ONE of them, so OF COURSE you understand they don’t care about you, but want your money at the end.

    “ask the waitress if you can go to the computor with her and ring in your own order that way if it gets fucked up you only have yourself to blame.”

    If you are talking about the check, NO, because she’d hand me my check, YOU IDIOT!! It doesn’t matter WHO rings in stuff at the computer. Have some COMMON SENSE. Even if another server brings me my check, that means this other server would be at fault, NOT my server since “SHE” didn’t see the check LAST, this other server did that could have and should have caught the wrong price.

    I am not talking about when you ring it in, IDIOT(that’s how stupid you are being), I am ONLY talking about the FINAL RESULT when the check is BROUGHT to the table. It doesn’t mater WHO rings in stuff on the check. It matters WHO brings it to the table as to WHOSE fault it is, LIKE DUH!! Think with *COMMON SENSE* here.

    If you are talking about the food, my complaint was about obvious errors that you don’t have *TOUCH* the food to notice the mistake, that means if my server brings me my food even though I rung up it wrong, she still TOOK my order by hopefully WRITING it down, so she had a way to verify the order ***BEFORE*** delivering it to me.

    If it’s another server that delivers the food, sure, that would be a way that any mistake except condiments(because those can be brought out BEFOREHAND by my server) would be my fault if I rung it up wrong, but that’s the only way.

    That’s how stupid you are. You know even LESS than I do and I have never been a server. Think before you write next time, because you are spewing STUPIDITY|!!!

    What does this tell you that I have pointed out your stupid logic? Obviously, that I know A HELL of A LOT more than you do.

    WHY don’t you take my advice to WRITE EVERY SINGLE SOLITARY THING DOWN AND QUIT BEING SO LAZY ASS AND UNCARING, HUH? I’d really like to know.

      http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/lazy

      Read the definition of lazy:

      “not inclined to work or exertion”

      That means you aren’t WILLING to WRITE DOWN THINGS, that means you aren’t willing to do MORE WORK.

      Definition of uncaring:

      http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/uncaring

      “couldn’t care less, could not care less; be completely unconcerned”

      This means you aren’t concerned with someone’s time or feelings that you forget their stuff or got something wrong.

      NO, that’s not how it goes. It DOES make you lazy if you are a FORGETFUL person that YOU ADMITTED YOU ARE. You said I quote:

      “I have forgotton on more that one occasion their condiments, their coffee”

      Being that you have admitted you do this, shows you NEED to write things down, because I bet on those occasions, at least one or all of them, you didn’t even *******TRY********* to remember the things that were ordered by that you didn’t WRITE THOSE REQUESTS DOWN, am I right?

      Even if you did, you are a forgetful person, so shouldn’t that tell you that you need to start *****CARING****** if you make someone pissed off or not by forgetting something they asked for? WHY be so GOD DAMN LAZY? WHY don’t you care about anyone else besides yourself?

      It makes you lazy and uncaring, because you haven’t *****TRIED***** your ***VERY, VERY BEST AND THE MOST THAT YOU CAN TRY TO GET THINGS RIGHT. It makes you lazy, because just as the bitch waitress that forgot my dr. pepper in one of the posts I wrote, she didn’t CARE if she got things right and she didn’t TRY HER BEST TO REMEMBER WHAT THE FUCK I SAID. SHE DIDN’T TRY AND YOU DON’T EITHER!!

      It makes you lazy that you aren’t wiling to at least give it a TRY to remember something. It makes you lazy, because you don’t care if you aren’t willing to try.

      You have to care about the customer in order for the customer to care as much or at all about your tip.

      “go out and do this job, please then you will have a different perspective on my job, really.”

      NO, YOU will have a different perspective if YOU go out to eat more often and be a customer with PROBLEMS at your table, TIME AND TIME AND TIME AND TIME AGAIN that your server was TOO LAZY ASS AND UNCARING TO GIVE A SHIT ABOUT WHAT THEY BROUGHT YOU OR IF THEY FORGOT SOMETHING THAT THEY DIDN’T WRITE IT DOWN OR HAVE TO COME BACK TO YOUR TABLE TO ASK “DID YOU SAY LETTUCE AND TOMATOES ONLY”(this really happened to a stupid waiter that didn’t write any of my food order down and neither my husband’s food either).

      When it’s YOUR FOOD, YOUR TIME, AND YOUR MONEY, you have a VERY DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE when serving the public, because YOU know what it’s LIKE to get the wrong food or your refill forgotten or an overcharged price on your check.

      I would STILL serve the way I preach. I would do EVERY SINGLE THING in my power to make sure the stuff was correct to the table. I would write EVERY SINGLE THING DOWN. I would verify all the things I wrote down. I would verify the check prices as well as the check itself for errors, etc. I would act like that’s **ME** in the customer’s seat, you don’t. I would not be lazy and uncaring like you. I would be very caring and a GO-GETTER!!

      “As of right now I will not responed to your rants again because they are just out there,”

      That’s because you want to have to last say and that isn’t going to happen. You aren’t right. Lazy is purposely deciding not to do an action.

      “you have no concept of what I do, all you think is that I stand there with a pen and paper and write down your order go to the kitchen pick it up serve you and give you your ticket as you say, well your wrong, there is more to it”

      I know this already, but the most important thing is to GET THINGS CORRECT if you can. THAT is WHY we tip you. It’s not just to take our order and get us things. It’s to get things RIGHT. THAT’S WHAT MAKES A GOOD SERVER, TO AVOID MISTAKES. One good way to avoid forgetting is to write things down. It helps, WHY are you not willing to do that being that you admitted you are forgetful, huh? WHY BE THAT LAZY? WHY BE THAT UNCARING ABOUT OTHERS? You call that “LOVE”, NO WAY IN HELL IS THAT LOVE, that’s LAZINESS AND BEING EXTREMELY UNCARING. Just like the definition, “couldn’t care less”, well that’s how you are treating the customers that you couldn’t care less if you remember what they said, because you CHOSE to be too lazy to write things down they said. THINK ABOUT IT……

      It’s not just “it’s just what it is”, because that really shows how you just don’t care if you forget someone’s coffee or condiments. That’s so mean. WHY be that way? WHY not TRY YOUR BEST to TRY, that’s all I ask, WRITE IT DOWN to at least TRY to get it right.

      “rest of the assholes like yourself”

      LOOK IN THE MIRROR, because I am a ***CARING**** person, unlike yourself that doesn’t care if you forget someone’s coffee or condiments, because you aren’t willing to write things down. You call that “LOVE”, that’s the 100% OPPOSITE of love, that’s being selfish and uncaring is what it is.

      YOU are the asshole that needs to look at your SELFISH AND LAZY SELF!! You aren’t a caring person at all, but then want people to care about that you only make $2.13/hr, right? Caring is a 2-way street, not a 1-way street.

THAT’S WHAT MAKES A GOOD SERVER, TO AVOID MISTAKES. One good way to avoid forgetting is to write things down. It helps, WHY are you not willing to do that being that you admitted you are forgetful, huh? WHY BE THAT LAZY? WHY BE THAT UNCARING ABOUT OTHERS? You call that “LOVE”, NO WAY IN HELL IS THAT LOVE, that’s LAZINESS AND BEING EXTREMELY UNCARING. Just like the definition, “couldn’t care less”, well that’s how you are treating the customers that you couldn’t care less if you remember what they said, because you CHOSE to be too lazy to write things down they said. THINK ABOUT IT..

      It’s not just “it’s just what it is”, because that really shows how you just don’t care if you forget someone’s coffee or condiments. That’s so mean. WHY be that way? WHY not TRY YOUR BEST to TRY, that’s all I ask, WRITE IT DOWN to at least TRY to get it right.

      “rest of the assholes like yourself”

      LOOK IN THE MIRROR, because I am a ***CARING**** person, unlike yourself that doesn’t care if you forget someone’s coffee or condiments, because you aren’t willing to write things down. You call that “LOVE”, that’s the 100% OPPOSITE of love, that’s being selfish and uncaring is what it is.

      YOU are the one that needs to look at your SELFISH AND LAZY SELF!! You aren’t a caring person at all, but then want people to care about that you only make $2.13/hr, right? Caring is a 2-way street, not a 1-way street.

  14. Before I go any further I would like to know what you do for a living, is it dealing with the public or do you sit in a cubical all day tucked away from the world, you seem to have no social skills when it comes to cooth or tacked. I just re-read your rants and all you keep repeating is that waitress is uncaring and lazy, before you go on your rampage again about just writing it down and everything would be rosy,go out and do this job, please then you will have a different perspective on my job, really. As of right now I will not responed to your rants again because they are just out there, you have no concept of what I do, all you think is that I stand there with a pen and paper and write down your order go to the kitchen pick it up serve you and give you your ticket as you say, well your wrong, there is more to it and you can’t see that so I hope that you find that perfect waitress in that perfect restauant with the perfect prices and you get all that you want and if you do find it please pass it on to the rest of the assholes like yourself and all go there. Thank you.

      “You are unbelievable”

      You are that you want to be uncaring and lazy on the job. Anyone that DOES forget things without writing it down is lazy that they didn’t ********TRY*********** to remember what was asked for.

      “then toss it away, cause it’s all a bunch of crap”

      HOW if it improves the customer’s service that you provide them by NOT forgetting things as often, huh? HOW is that “a bunch of crap” to say TRY your best to remember by writing it down, huh?

      YOU ARE REALLY LAZY!!

      “I have been doing my job for a very long time and have been very successful and I will continue to be successful despite people like you.”

      HOW are you “successful” if you FORGET things when you don’t write things down, huh? That’s not being successful is it that let’s say you got a 15% tip, you COULD have had a 20% tip you idiot, that’s how LAZY ASS you are not to want to ****EARN***** the MOST MONEY YOU CAN MAKE and to actually *****CARE******* about someone else’ besides your lazy ass tired feet.

      “Whether I write every word down or I don’t that doesn’t make me lazy or uncaring that is just how it goes,”

      http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/lazy

      Read the definition of lazy:

      “not inclined to work or exertion”

      That means you aren’t WILLING to WRITE DOWN THINGS, that means you aren’t willing to do MORE WORK.

      Definition of uncaring:

      http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/uncaring

      “couldn’t care less, could not care less; be completely unconcerned”

      This means you aren’t concerned with someone’s time or feelings that you forget their stuff or got something wrong.

      NO, that’s not how it goes. It DOES make you lazy if you are a FORGETFUL person that YOU ADMITTED YOU ARE. You said I quote:

      “I have forgotton on more that one occasion their condiments, their coffee”

      Being that you have admitted you do this, shows you NEED to write things down, because I bet on those occasions, at least one or all of them, you didn’t even *******TRY********* to remember the things that were ordered by that you didn’t WRITE THOSE REQUESTS DOWN, am I right?

      Even if you did, you are a forgetful person, so shouldn’t that tell you that you need to start *****CARING****** if you make someone pissed off or not by forgetting something they asked for? WHY be so GOD DAMN LAZY? WHY don’t you care about anyone else besides yourself?

      It makes you lazy and uncaring, because you haven’t *****TRIED***** your ***VERY, VERY BEST AND THE MOST THAT YOU CAN TRY TO GET THINGS RIGHT. It makes you lazy, because just as the bitch waitress that forgot my dr. pepper in one of the posts I wrote, she didn’t CARE if she got things right and she didn’t TRY HER BEST TO REMEMBER WHAT THE FUCK I SAID. SHE DIDN’T TRY AND YOU DON’T EITHER!!

      It makes you lazy that you aren’t wiling to at least give it a TRY to remember something. It makes you lazy, because you don’t care if you aren’t willing to try.

      You have to care about the customer in order for the customer to care as much or at all about your tip.

      “go out and do this job, please then you will have a different perspective on my job, really.”

      NO, YOU will have a different perspective if YOU go out to eat more often and be a customer with PROBLEMS at your table, TIME AND TIME AND TIME AND TIME AGAIN that your server was TOO LAZY ASS AND UNCARING TO GIVE A SHIT ABOUT WHAT THEY BROUGHT YOU OR IF THEY FORGOT SOMETHING THAT THEY DIDN’T WRITE IT DOWN OR HAVE TO COME BACK TO YOUR TABLE TO ASK “DID YOU SAY LETTUCE AND TOMATOES ONLY”(this really happened to a stupid waiter that didn’t write any of my food order down and neither my husband’s food either).

      When it’s YOUR FOOD, YOUR TIME, AND YOUR MONEY, you have a VERY DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE when serving the public, because YOU know what it’s LIKE to get the wrong food or your refill forgotten or an overcharged price on your check.

      I would STILL serve the way I preach. I would do EVERY SINGLE THING in my power to make sure the stuff was correct to the table. I would write EVERY SINGLE THING DOWN. I would verify all the things I wrote down. I would verify the check prices as well as the check itself for errors, etc. I would act like that’s **ME** in the customer’s seat, you don’t. I would not be lazy and uncaring like you. I would be very caring and a GO-GETTER!!

      “As of right now I will not responed to your rants again because they are just out there,”

      That’s because you want to have to last say and that isn’t going to happen. You aren’t right. Lazy is purposely deciding not to do an action.

      “you have no concept of what I do, all you think is that I stand there with a pen and paper and write down your order go to the kitchen pick it up serve you and give you your ticket as you say, well your wrong, there is more to it”
