UnderCover Waitress: Restaurant Customer is Spawn of Satan

Restaurant Customer is Spawn of Satan

I first "met" Springs1 a couple of years ago while writing for a "we are not a content mill" under one of my many pen names. She left some extremely juicy comments and got the conversation and controversy going.  She is also every waitress's worst nightmare.

I recently discovered that she is spreading her excuses to not tip servers on the blogosphere. At great risk of giving her too much attention, she has twelve blogs (so far) that are each nothing more than a rant about poor service. Oftentimes, the service wasn't bad at all, but the customer is a temper-tantrum waiting to happen and, as I said, she is looking for excuses not to tip.
Table for one
and get it right
or I won't tip.

I maintained her use of caps and bold. Okay, here goes:

When taking the order always WRITE THE ORDER DOWN no matter HOW SIMPLE, because it's easy to forget.

Funny, stupid people assume the rest of us are stupid. We don't write the order down when we don't need to. I say this not only as a waitress, but as a diner who has been waited on by many intelligent people with working memories who did not need to write my table's order.

Always ASK the customer if they want another refill...


This is hysterical. Of her thousand pet peeves, this one is about restaurant employees refilling water glasses. Most people see *not* refilling the glass as a way to save money on tip. Springs1, however, enjoys putting us in the Catch 22 position, and withholds tip if we don't ask before refilling her water glass. And if she wants water, she withholds tip because we didn't refill fast enough. Basically, this woman does not tip.

I’ve had a couple of servers assumed I wanted “2 sides of bbq sauce” for ribs, that meant to them I wanted “2 bbq sauce’s on the SIDE”, but I NEVER said that.

Yeah, I don't understand that one, either.

Don’t ASSUME something like this: “Do you want another margarita”, if the person has ordered their first drink a margarita, because maybe the customer wants something else, so the customer has to say “NO”, which if the server would just say “Would you like anything else”, it would save time and wouldn’t be PUSHING a SPECIFIC TYPE of item on someone. WHY NOT just ask if they want another DRINK instead of being that specific? I’ve gotten margarita for the first drink, then a white russian or a long island iced tea for my second drink LOTS and LOTS of times.

Is this woman for real or a troll? Does anybody feel like they are walking on eggshells? We don't get tipped because we worded a simple question incorrectly? WTF? This paragraph reads as if she wrote it after a margarita and a long island iced tea. Springs1, somebody needs to cut you off.

One more:

When a server is pushy to get you out of there, it's IRRITATING. One time my husband and I were asked TWICE BEFORE I was finished eating if we wanted a dessert. Let customers FINISH eating first,...

Okay, actually, I have to agree on this one. Can't stand servers who just want to turn the table. Restaurants that operate that way need to go out of business yesterday.

That being said, Springs1 should learn to cook so she can stay home.

  1. I believe Springs1 was here on a California trip last week, certainly does get around... I recommend they stay in lodging with kitchens to 'cook your own meals'. Thanks for sharing this with us.

  6. "she is looking for excuses not to tip."

    Did you ever **READ** my comments actually?

    "While I would agree with reducing the tip, I would only agree with stiffing if they decided to KEEP any part of your change. Today, a lot of servers ask that, so if you pay with cash a lot, you'd end up stiffing a lot, which if the service was wonderful otherwise, that would be kind of strict, don't you think??"

    This is what I wrote back in 2009.

    I was actually telling Cheryl Probst that she shouldn't stiff just because someone asks a question. I said if they STEAL, by keeping your change you should steal back at them for doing something morally wrong such as stealing.

    "We don't write the order down when we don't need to. I say this not only as a waitress, but as a diner who has been waited on by many intelligent people with working memories who did not need to write my table's order."

    WHY do I keep having these stupid, lazy servers that can't remember even the SMALLEST of tasks like you ask for 4 things a box, a bag, the check, and a to-go coke, they can't remember one or more things even?

    I asked once for example for a refill, more bread, and extra napkins, the waiter forgot the napkins.

    Do you see what I am getting at?

    You may feel you don't have to write it down and maybe SOME people have a really good short term memory, but MOST people DON'T. You try not to run your server(being considerate) and they don't take the initiative to write down what you said to at least TRY to remember everything.

    I have had servers even not write down food orders and had servers come to say for example one waiter asked "Did you say only lettuce and tomatoes" when I had ordered "Lettuce and onions only."

    Servers wouldn't do that aggravating crap if they chose to not be so damn lazy ass and WRITE THINGS DOWN!!

    "withholds tip if we don't ask before refilling her water glass. And if she wants water, she withholds tip because we didn't refill fast enough. Basically, this woman does not tip."

    This is not true. All I do is LOWER the tip some, could be 1% or so. Sometimes overlook it if the service was perfect otherwise.

    I am NOT SURE WHERE you get from that I don't tip based on things when I have even said that I wouldn't stiff over a question about change.

    The servers should be ONLY doing what **YOU** personally want since they want **YOUR PERSONAL MONEY**. That means you shouldn't go by majority, but what the PEOPLE want at the table, even individual people in the party may want things different ways even. It's their money, their service, why not give them what **THEY*** want when you want **THEIR PERSONAL MONEY**, huh?

  7. "Yeah, I don't understand that one, either."

    That's because you are TOO STUPID to take an order.

    If I order off the menu baby back ribs and say "I would like 2 sides of bbq sauce" that means that I am not CHANGING the item itself that I am **ADDING** to the order. 2 stupid servers assumed I wanted NO bbq sauce on the ribs and that I wanted 2 sides of bbq sauce "ON THE SIDE" when I NEVER said that. I had gone by the menu that bbq sauce AUTOMATICALLY CAME on the ribs, and even one of those times I said "EXTRA", but the stupid servers "ASSUMED" I wanted no bbq sauce on the ribs, YET, I NEVER ONCE said that. I said I wanted "SIDES" that's just containers and doesn't have ANYTHING to do with the actual item itself.

    "We don't get tipped because we worded a simple question incorrectly? WTF?"

    Yes you sure do. While I don't take off for this, it's one of those annoying things. Every server seems to assume that because you ordered a margarita first, that means you want another the next drink. Maybe you just want another bar drink, but something else. My husband has switched drinks as well, even some beers. I am not the only person is my point.

    I would just ask the customer if they would like another "DRINK" NOT EVER referring to what they had the first time around. DO NOT ASSUME is my point.

    We actually tip VERY WELL 25%-30% even more at times. So I am NOT sure WHERE you are getting that we stiff for minor issues? Some issues I don't take off for such as them asking if I want another margarita when I don't want that drink, because it's so minor. It's just something that is irritating when you DON'T want the same drink. Think about it. It's the ASSUMING that's aggravating, even if I do want another of the same, it's still irritating a bit.

  9. "Yeah, I don't understand that one, either."

    If I wanted no bbq sauce on the ribs, I would have ORDERED it that way by saying something like "Bbq sauce on the side, 2 sides of it" or "No bbq sauce on the ribs, but I do want 2 sides of bbq sauce" or "Ribs completely dry with 2 sides of bbq sauce on the side." Basically something like those.

    http://bennigans.com/Menu.cfm

    This is the restaurant where I had this happen from probably in 2004. The menu still had where it had bbq sauce on the ribs automatically. So when I ordered even if I didn't say "extra" that time, I said "I would like the baby back ribs with 2 sides of bbq sauce.

    That isn't saying "bbq sauce ON THE SIDE", that means extra, because I never said I didn't want the menu item the way it came in any way, shape, or form.

    When I don't want something on something such as jalapenos, I will say "I would like the jalapenos on the side" or I have said also "NO jalapenos, then list that I want a side of jalapenos. That's just an example of how STUPID you are that you can't TAKE AN ORDER!!

  10. "Yeah, I don't understand that one, either."

    My point is, I KNOW how to order that other MANY servers never messed this up(have gotten ribs MANY of times before) before this even ever happened even or even after if I didn't say I wanted bbq sauce on the ribs. I don't feel I should have to say that when it's on the MENU ALREADY. It's like rereading the menu to the server and that makes no sense a customer should have to when they should know the menu better than me. I have had some servers since asked if I wanted extra to be sure since some customers don't know how to order, but I DO!!

    I have taken customers orders at the donut shop I worked for about 10yrs ago that didn't know how to order. Some that didn't state "ONLY" wanted everything on the burger while others that listed all what they wanted on it didn't say "ONLY" but actually only wanted ONLY those items. Stupid customers I have encountered that don't know how to order. I KNOW how to order. I go according to the menu and then state what I want.

    This sandwich was at Chili's around 2006-2007 or so. I ordered it from this stupid waitress. This is the menu description below:

    "Cajun Chicken Sandwich
    spicy, Cajun-style grilled chicken breast with jalapeno Jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle, chipotle-ranch dressing, Awesome Blossom strings"

    I ordered it with a written order(because it was so complicated for me to remember everything, it was easier to write it IN NEAT PRINT).

    This is the order I ordered:

    Cajun Chicken Sandwich:

    Substitute Cheddar cheese for jalapeno jack cheese
    No Tomatoes
    No pickles
    No Chipolte-ranch
    Add onions

    When the sandwich came, the lettuce and the awesome blossom strings were missing. I told her about that lettuce and onion strings COME on the sandwich and she replied "I DIDN'T THINK ABOUT THAT." So she admitted fault that she put in the order wrong and it wasn't that the kitchen staff messed up by saying just that.

    In other words, she didn't even READ the order and she didn't know HOW TO TAKE AN ORDER even.

    You seem like this that you don't understand my order. It's not hard. The customer goes by the **MENU** when they order and then from there, makes their order.

    I never once said I didn't want the lettuce or awesome blossom strings, did I?

    Some servers are too STUPID to KNOW HOW TO TAKE AN ORDER!! It's sad, it really is!! Some servers are mad at customers for not reading the menus, but at times it's the SERVER not reading the menus, NOT US!!

    When putting in the order, she should have not put no everything and put just what I EXACTLY SAID!!

    This isn't rocket science. If you are confused in any way, you ask the customer, but you never assume.

  11. Springs1, you make some legitimate complaints, but you negate them by being so aggressive and insulting. why not try being civil and laying off the caps key? You might get much better results.

  12. "If you are confused in any way, you ask the customer,"

    This statement left in comments by Springs1 I do completely agree with. Better to get it right than guess. If a customer cops attitude when asked for clarification, the customer is the one with a problem.

  13. "If a customer cops attitude when asked for clarification, the customer is the one with a problem."

    I fully agree accept for stupid questions such as if the restaurant does not charge for extra condiments for example, that I have been asked before at a Chili's once(not our local one, but a different one not around where we live) a waitress asked when I ordered the mozzarella sticks ADDING a side of ranch to it if we wanted the marinara sauce that CAME with the item according to the menu. That does irritate me a bit in that since it's free and most importantly doesn't alter the food itself since it is on the side, that if the customer doesn't want it, does it really matter?

    Think about it from my point of view:

    Let's say I order cheese fries that come with ranch on the menu, but I ADD a side of bleu cheese. For one thing, one person at the table may like one sauce, the other person may want the other if it's an appetizer that most likely will be shared. Also, what if we want both? If we don't want both, it's on the side and as a customer *I* should be responsible enough to have READ the menu to know I would be automatically getting that dressing it comes with which was ranch. The main thing is, the ranch dressing is ON THE SIDE, therefore, if we didn't want it, what is the true harm? I mean, it wastes time to ask if we want both when I am really ordering both considering: A. I am not stating I want to "SUBSTITUTE" one sauce for another. B. That I don't want the sauce it comes with C. That I want bleu cheese instead of ranch

    Basically, the only time I feel you should ask a customer if they want both is if it costs the customer money or if the sauce is ON THE FOOD altering the food itself.

    While I completely agree don't be mean, it to me, is mean to waste time for no real reason since it's FREE to the customer to receive both sauces considering they AREN'T touching the food any.

    In other words, this shouldn't be asked since it's sauces that come with an item that don't alter the food any and that don't costs the customer more. The restaurants that DO charge for extra condiments, YES, I would ask the customer then since they would get charged, ONLY because there are dumb customers that don't know HOW to ORDER would be complaining about that they were ordering one sauce when they honestly really didn't and I just wouldn't want to deal with that when check times comes since they really did order it. If it is free, since the sauce is on the side, it's no big deal to me. I have many of times over the years at Red Lobster gotten sides of cocktail sauce and ketchup, which neither one is on the menu and I don't like both of those. It's not a huge issue to just move it in my eyes anyway.

  14. In other words, that to me, would be the only time I feel that the server has no right to ask if I want both. WHY? Because if the customer doesn't know how to order, if it's a sauce that's not touching the food and it doesn't costs the customer more money, WHY would it matter if they didn't want the sauce?

    You may say they don't want to move it, but that's through their fault. I don't want my time wasted since I DO know how to order in this exact situation. Don't make the stupids suffer for the smart people.

    I guess my main point is, I am tired of suffering with servers that ask stupid questions that the sauce that it comes with it comes with and I shouldn't be asked most of the time. It delays the ordering process(I know by just seconds, but even that can make you wait minutes longer for your food if another server sends in another table's order even 3-5 seconds before your server does, it's true). It's because I am already ordering the sauce it comes with such as if I ordered it as it came I'd get the sauce, why would I not want the sauce if I didn't say in any way, shape, or form I didn't want the sauce? People sometimes read things into the order through assumptions because of majority instead of doing things by individuality as it is supposed to be.

    In this situation the waitress is attempting to avoid wasting food; if you don't want to eat it why bother serving it just to throw it out? If the side of ranch costs extra would be nice to allow a substitute, but I still see no virtue in throwing away food. Seems like a small amount of time to ask the question and a greater sin to waste food.

  16. "If the side of ranch costs extra would be nice to allow a substitute, but I still see no virtue in throwing away food. Seems like a small amount of time to ask the question and a greater sin to waste food."

    Because for one, we are PAYING for the item therefore, WE OWN the marinara for example with the mozzarella sticks.

    Also, for the sake of your argument that it waste food, labor, and work time, I am thinking about my HUNGER TIME, NOT the waste of food. I do NOT CARE if I don't want it. I have ENOUGH problems getting the condiments I DO WANT, so that's why I don't give extra information to the server, because that confuses them a lot of times and usually what happens is they forget what I DO WANT, so then that is when I am mad about the situation that I don't receive what I DO WANT, so now I have to wait to eat my food until someone goes get it. Sometimes it truly has been 4-5 minutes or sometimes 2-3 minutes which is a long time when others at the table start eating and you aren't. It makes you feel left out, but I only enjoy the food with the condiments.

    The waitress should NOT be worried about the restaurant's waste. That's not her concern. Her concern should be her TIP, which TIME is what made her tip just a tad bit less due to her wasting it over a stupid question when we DID PAY for the marinara in the price of the item.

    Her concern should be getting our food to us as quickly as she can as long as one course doesn't run into another such as appetizer running into an entrée.

    Her concern should be ONLY **HER** MONEY, NOT the restaurant's money that really isn't their money, it's ours. That saving that on one item is not going to make the prices go up that much over the years. I also don't care if it did, because my time is worth more than the extra cents I may pay over the years for them wasting products.

  17. "if you don't want to eat it why bother serving it just to throw it out?"

    WHY bother wasting time on things I don't want by telling my server this whether I voluntarily tell him or her or them asking? It wastes time. A good example, I never use the lime that served on the side of margarita glasses. I am not going to waste my time telling the server this. My time is worth MORE than the little bit of money that the restaurant will make the prices and even if I end up paying for it such as if I am a regular customer of a restaurant, SO WHAT? My time is worth more than the money issue. I go out to eat to have a nice time and relax, not to be asked time wasting questions. I do like conversation from servers that I know, but on topics that are fun, not that and definitely rather get to place my order first rather than my order being delayed to chit chat.

    If you really think about it, at restaurants we go to once or twice and never go back to, we won't ever pay the price hike from the waste, so it wastes time for the customer unnecessarily.

    It's just irritating to be asked that. Let's say I order chicken tenders that come with honey mustard and I order "chicken tenders adding a side of bbq sauce." Well, I am technically paying for the honey mustard, so WHY SHOULD I not receive the honey mustard if I didn't say I didn't want it? Think about it like that. If it wastes, that's US to decide that since we OWN the honey mustard by US PAYING for the chicken tenders in the price of the item, so we can choose to waste if we want to. My time is worth more than the precious cents of the restaurant that even if the prices go higher due to things like this, that's how I choose to use my money. I should have a right to want to waste food if I want to when *I* am **PAYING*** to do so. Think about it. Do you want someone to tell you let's say if you owned a business how to run it? I know this is a way different issue, but it's the same in that we get to do what we want. It's our service that we are paying for and we are already paying for the sauce it comes with, so who are you to try to prevent us from receiving what we ARE paying for when we didn't tell you we didn't want the item? We should get what WE want for OUR money, shouldn't we have that right?

  18. WHO THE HELL IS SPRINGS1? TALK ABOUT WASTING TIME, WRITING ALL THIS CRAP IS A PRIME EXAMPLE OF WASTING TIME. SPRINGS1--GET A F****** LIFE! WHY DON'T YOU QUIT GOING OUT TO EAT IF YOU ARE SO DISSATISFYED WITH THE SERVICE.

  19. So Springs1 looks poorly on servers who ask too many questions or asks questions that she believes is wrong? How the heck else is your server supposed to know what you want? Are we psychic? I would rather use thorough questions to make sure your dining experience is correct, than wait for you to yell at me because you assume I understand what you are talking about? Every customer is different, two customers could order ribs with extra BBQ, one may mean they want the extra on their ribs and the other may want it on the side. The server won't know until the ask.

    And you don't like silent refills? Well you are going to have to get used to it, because it is a big part of training in most major restaurants. Silent refills on water, iced tea, and soft drinks are trained to be automatic. You reduce the tip because the restaurant chose to trainer the server that way? It isn't the server's fault then!

    Lighten up, you don't want to be "that person" in all of the restaurants in your area that none of the servers want to take care of. They will care even less to give you great service and the managers won't care when you complain.

      "How the heck else is your server supposed to know what you want? Are we psychic?"

      But I am saying I want the sauce it comes with ***WHEN I PLACE MY ORDER ACCORDING TO THE ******MENU*********, DUHHH!!

      "than wait for you to yell at me because you assume I understand what you are talking about?"

      If a sauce comes with an item according to the menu and let's say I don't want it, SO WHAT? I am PAYING FOR IT ANYWAYS, what's it to you what *I* do with something I am already *PAYING* for. It's not your concern, it's MINE.

      "Every customer is different, two customers could order ribs with extra BBQ, one may mean they want the extra on their ribs and the other may want it on the side. The server won't know until the ask."

      That example is 100% TOTALLY DIFFERENT than an item ON THE SIDE that the person is ALREADY ORDERING in the item.

      Mozzarella sticks that comes with marinara and I say I want to add a side of ranch to it, I should automatically without question get the marinara, because I am not saying "substitute ranch for marinara" or that "I don't want the marinara", because it's on the ********SIDE********* that it isn't affecting the other foods and as long as it doesn't cost the customer more to get both, no reason to ask this to waste the customer's time. If they meant they didn't want the marinara that it came with, they can just move it. It's being *********PAID******* for by the customer anyway, not the restaurant. The ranch is what is paid by the restaurant and should not be concerning the server. What should concern the server is the customer tipping them well for not wasting their time asking stupid questions that are ALREADY LISTED ON THE *MENU* ALREADY that the food is NOT AFFECTED at all by the sauce on the side.

      The ribs issue I 100% AGREE with you on to ask, because it's affecting the food itself.


      "Well you are going to have to get used to it, because it is a big part of training in most major restaurants. Silent refills on water, iced tea, and soft drinks are trained to be automatic.

      It's not, because most servers do NOT do this. Also, it *IS* their fault that they can ask when they ********GREET******* YOU "Some people like refills without being asked throughout your service, is this something you all would be interested in?" That's how you find out. IT IS THEIR FAULT. They are choosing to ORDER for me when they aren't supposed to be ordering for me, because it's *OUR MONEY* they want, so they do as *WE* want, NOT what anyone else wants, *WE RULE THE SHOW*!! OUR MONEY DOES IS WHAT IT AMOUNTS TO.

      But it's ********NOT ************THE RESTAURANT'S MONEY***********TO WORRY ABOUT WASTING, it's the **********CUSTOMER'S MONEY*********!!

      When I order mozzarella sticks that come with marinara, I am paying for the marinara. *I* AM PAYING FOR THAT MARINARA, NOT ANYONE ELSE, so it's up to ***ME*** IF I WANT TO WASTE IT OR NOT, NOT MY SERVER, NOT THE MANAGER.

      It's up to the manager if they want to charge me for any extra condiments I get, which most restaurants don't charge for that in general. So that is not my fault they want to give away food for free.

  22. Thank you for pointing this out, Anonymous. Wasting food creates a chain reaction of loss of resources for everyone in the restaurant -- including other customers. If money didn't go into garbage, maybe we could even charge less.

      But it's *(NOT)* *********THE RESTAURANT'S MONEY*********, it's the ***********CUSTOMER'S MONEY**********!!

      Mind your own BUSINESS when it comes to *OUR MONEY*.

      You should not be asking me if I order mozzarella sticks with adding a side of ranch if I want the marinara, because we OWN IT ALREADY WHEN WE ORDER IT, because we are going to be paying for that marinara which is INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF THE MOZZARELLA STICKS.

      Don't you get that or what? It's not your business since it's not affecting the mozzarella sticks, it's on the side, so there's no need to ask. It's not yours, it's not the restaurant's to decide if I am going to waste it or not. It's not your place. WHY CAN'T YOU SEE THAT, HUH?

    2. I understand your point, but I disagree with it. You are missing the big picture. The restaurant does not sell you food for no other purpose but to throw it away. Honestly, this is like the 1% vs. the 99% argument. The very rich think it is their right to do with what is "theirs" regardless of the consequences. The rest of us recognize that resources are scarce and food should not be wasted. It costs the restaurant to provide you with "your" marinara which you have every intention of throwing away. By not wasting the product, you do save the restaurant resources and help the business. There is no benefit for you for wasting; there is much benefit for everyone when people take what they use and avoid waste.

      Actually, they DO, because it's not *ANYONE'S* CONCERN OR *********BUSINESS*********** WHAT I DO WITH THE REST OF MY FOOD I DON'T EAT. I have already gotten a to-go box and because we didn't have an ice chest and were going somewhere else first, we threw the rest of the food away I didn't eat like half of my burger and fries.

      That's ************MY**************** CHOICE AS A CUSTOMER TO WASTE IT, NOT **********YOURS******** AND NOT THE ***********OWNER********* EITHER!!

      "Honestly, this is like the 1% vs. the 99% argument."

      NO, most people *WILL* want both, because the other person at the table likes one sauce, the person ordering likes another or they may like BOTH, so it's STUPID TO ASK.

      99% of people *WILL* want both. It's not yours to decide if I want both or not.

      Actually it doesn't, because *******I AM GIVING THEM THE MONEY FOR IT, SO NO, you are 100% WRONG THAT IT IS CERTAINLY ***********NOT********** COSTING THE RESTAURANT MONEY IF GIVE THEM let's say the item is $6.99, I am *PAYING* THE RESTAURANT FOR MY MARINARA, so it's not costing the restaurant *ANY* MONEY, because **I** am PAYING FOR THE MARINARA IN THAT $6.99 price IDIOT!!

      "By not wasting the product, you do save the restaurant resources and help the business."

      By not asking, you are not bombarding customers with STUPID questions and wasting their TIME, which *IS* *****THEIR SERVICE*******, so it's stupid to ask since it's *THEIRS*.

      You don't want to ask about water with lemon, but then waste money on water and lemons as well as those dishes they have to wash with HOT WATER that wastes money, yet, you don't mind asking about marinara that *COMES* with the item that the customer is *PAYING FOR* yet you are OK with not asking if it's something for free? THAT MAKES NO SENSE when it cost the restaurant money to give people water and ESPECIALLY LEMONS. Then if they use the sweeteners with their lemon and water, that's money too that they maybe wouldn't have used if you didn't bring them water with lemon, they may have said "NO" they didn't want water with lemon.

    4. "There is no benefit for you for wasting;"

      There is *********TIME***********!! If there was no benefit, we wouldn't be arguing IDIOT! YOU ARE WASTING *MY* TIME AS A CUSTOMER ASKING ME QUESTIONS THAT ARE NOT YOUR BUSINESS DELAYING MY ORDER FROM GETTING TO ME FASTER, DUHHH!!

      There is a benefit, because I may not want it, but I can bring it home to someone that might as well or some people feed their pets leftovers as well.

      It's not your business what I do with an item that I am paying for. WHY do you feel you have CONTROL over that huh?

      When I worked at the donut shop/diner, back when I wasn't a customer much, I use to try to save money for the company by putting powered donut holes in the same bag as let's say a glazed donut. Some customers would bitch about it. Do you think I was making the customer's SERVICE AND EXPERIENCE HAPPY? I saved a whopping few cents a bag or so, SO WHAT? Did I get a raise more for doing so, NO, I didn't or more bonus, NO.

      The thing is with servers, you are getting your wage and that's it $2.13/hr if you live in Louisiana, so since there's no raise for you, there's no benefit for *YOUR* pocket to do this, if anything, by asking the customer this, it's making them get aggravated with having to answer such STUPID questions that it COMES with it so WTF are you asking me? It wastes *TIME* for no only that customer, but other customers as well.

      It doesn't benefit anyone except the OWNERS of the company and YOU WON'T SEE A PENNY OF THE SAVINGS and it's truly STEALING from the customer, because it's truly *THEIRS* to decide if they want or don't want, NOT YOURS, NOT THE RESTAURANT'S.

      I am not wasting the product of the company. I am wasting the product******* I am ********PAYING FOR*************!!

      Get what I am saying? Is it *MY* fault that your stupid owner doesn't charge for extra condiments? If they did, we wouldn't be arguing about this, because then I would say to ask *ONLY* because of stupid customers that do not know how to place an order, because they would have to pay for both, then if they really meant they only wanted one, they'd be pissed they would be billed for both when in their mind(NOT VERBALLY) thought they wanted just one sauce.

      Since the owner doesn't charge for more, what's the problem here? Obviously, your owner wants to give away money and that's ******HIS OR HER DECISION********. Obviously they can afford to do it, so it's NOT *THE COMPANY'S* to take back, it's OURS.

    5. One more thing.

      The price of the mozzarella sticks with marinara let's say is $6.99. If the mozzarella sticks were sold without the marinara, it would be like $6.49(assuming most places charge around 50 cents for condiments the ones that do charge).

      See, ******I********* AM PAYING FOR THE MARINARA, NOT THE RESTAURANT IDIOT. The thing I am not paying for is the ranch I added to it that they are *****CHOOSING****** NOT TO CHARGE ME FOR WHEN THEY CAN AND COULD. NOT MY PROBLEM THEY DON'T WANT TO CHARGE FOR EXTRA CONDIMENTS, IS IT? My time shouldn't be WASTED ON A STUPID QUESTION BECAUSE OF IT.

      Delete
    6. One more thing as well.

      I am **ALREADY *******ORDERING******* IT IN THE DESCRIPTION of the item.

      http://www.applebees.com/menu/appetizers/appetizers/mozzarella-sticks

      Mozzarella Sticks

      "Golden fried and served with a tasty marinara sauce.
      $6.49"

      See the real price without the marinara is around $5.99.

      Also, when I go to let's say McDonald's, I don't want pickles on the Big Mac, they certainly didn't give me the CENTS BACK that they were taking away from my sandwich nor does ANY TYPE OF RESTAURANT DO THAT.

      That means they don't give me back my money on part of the sandwiches just because I don't want pickles or tomatoes, do they?

      So it think about it, it's only ********FAIR******* that since *WE* don't get *OUR MONEY BACK* that WE ARE GIVING YOU BACK, YOU SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO GET OUR MONEY BACK? GET IT HOW UNFAIR YOU ARE BEING?

      When I don't get the pickles, I don't get my money back from those pickles.

      Now in my case, I am getting ranch too, but that's free. What I am paying for I should get back *MONETARILY* by them reducing the price to $5.99 instead of $6.49 if you feel the way you feel. You don't agree? If you want to take the marinara **I** am *PAYING* FOR, YOU OWE *ME* BACK the money I am paying the restaurant.

      May I ask *HOW* does it affect your paycheck? $2.13/hr doesn't change.

      Also, you sound SO **********SELFISH************ it's RIDICULOUS!

      The name of the job is "CUSTOMER SERVICE", NOT WHAT THE SERVER WANTS, which it's not called "SERVER'S SERVICE" or "OWNER'S SERVICE" , is it?

      "Money spent on wasted product cannot be used to pay me."

      SELFISH!! First off, you only get that set wage $2.13/hr, so HOW CAN YOU SAY YOU MAKE MORE MONEY DOING THIS, HUH?


      "Why don't you purchase your own Chili's/Applebee's/Bennigan's franchise and learn for yourself?"

      WHY don't you get COMMON SENSE to think about that you aren't making more money from the company doing this? If anything, you make more money from the customer by NOT ASKING THEM STUPID QUESTIONS WASTING THEIR TIME.

      I mean if the servers don't want to waste their time asking about, WHY this should be *ANY* different in that these BOTH COSTS the company money, the difference is, ONE the person *IS* ordering, the other the customer isn't.

    2. Springs1, you don't seem to understand this, so I'll type slowly. Wasted food costs money. Money spent on food you throw away without touching cannot be used to pay salaries. That's why it is in my best interest, and those of my fellow servers, to do what we can to minimize food waste. Period.

      You consider that selfish---I consider it looking out for my employers.

      Now, don't you have some ranch to guzzle?

      "Money spent on food you throw away without touching cannot be used to pay salaries."

      But that means you should be GIVING OUR MONEY BACK if we don't use the marinara that we are paying for. *WE* are paying for it, so WHY should you get to take it back from us, huh?

      "That's why it is in my best interest, and those of my fellow servers, to do what we can to minimize food waste. Period."

      Then bringing refills without asking of any kind should *NEVER* happen then. Bringing out glasses of water without asking shouldn't *EVER* be done then.

      The thing is, the *******CUSTOMER********* is PAYING for that marinara, so if you want to take it back, *YOU* OWE US, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.

      IT'S *******OUR*********** SERVICE so we should be able to do what we want in it since ********WE********* are paying our server, which means we shouldn't be asked things on the menu already that aren't affecting the food any.

      "You consider that selfish---I consider it looking out for my employers."

      But it's not looking out for your employer if it's *NOT* THE EMPLOYER'S MONEY THOUGH, it's STEALING.

      Also, without customers you don't have a business, so you are supposed to look out for the customer more than anybody else.

      Customers are WHY you have a job, WHY they have a business, so looking out and pleasing THEM is *MUCH MORE IMPORTANT* than the pennies you save on stealing from your customers what *THEY* are PAYING FOR ALREADY.

    P.S. Please let us know where we can send the pepper and your fifty cents, then you will be able to get a bendy straw for your ranch, and bring your own ranch dressing when you go out. Because Lord knows you will continue all your games, and since they are not providing you with the marinara or ranch now, you should get a bill adjustment and pass that along to your personal assistant!

    It DOES. If I would scan you our credit card statements and show receipts as PROOF, I would.

    "because the rest of us are too dumb!"

    Most of you all are that I am proving time and time again parts of the menu BETTER than the servers and managers.

    Also, time and time again, stupid servers aren't comparing their written orders or tickets to the food for DUH mistakes that they keep bringing me things at times I can see are wrong ON THE FUCKING ASS TRAY EVEN. That's how PATHETIC some of these servers are, for real.

    "bring your own ranch dressing when you go out."

    They don't sell the kind at the restaurants. I wouldn't anyway, because most restaurants will give it away for free. I bet you don't like paying for things you don't have to, so doesn't anyone else. I am not talking about tipping here, because I feel if you expect good service, you should tip well. Who wants to be charged if the owner doesn't want to, huh?

  30. I wonder why you haven't won the lotto by now, since you know everything....and since you know everything you must know we, and I, and many would like you to go away. Go away does not mean respond back with a cut and paste reply, is idiot better???? Because neither word is profane, and that was the message I was sending. I guess it got lost "with all those other things you've got in your head" Or maybe your head is somewhere else and isn't taking messages.
    Either way Ranch Dressing packets have d i r e c t i o n s, on the back of the packet idiot, just turn it over and follow the directions, or do you have problems with simple directions? Maybe YOU are just TOO much of an IDIOT & MORON, to know or listen, or read.
    Go to store, as front desk, customer service (you do not have to tip), ask them where might you find hidden valley ranch PACKETS, so you can make your own ranch dressing, they will take you to this item, and now you are in the store get the other components to make your own restaurant ranch, if you are unsuccessful for sure you are the on with the problems you are putting off on everyone else.
    And if you know so much why don't you know you can make your own dressing? Try it with whole milk, but I would suggest buttermilk, more creamy, I wrote all this down for you just print, and follow. And yes there are directions on the packets, for sure....WHO WHERE YOU CALLING IDIOT? It must have been you, so try your luck at the store, and hopefully your ranch rants, may fall to the waste side.

  47. Holy cow, what a nutjob!!! Apparently she is the only intelligent creature on earth because anybody who can't read her mind is an idiot - wait, excuse me - an********IDIOT*****!!! Does anybody else picture her at her computer, madly typing 100 words per minute, her fingers on fire, smoke coming from her ears and steam coming from her head, while simultaneously ripping her hair out and screaming explitives at the computer screen? People who are happy and content in life do not waste their time ripping an entire industry to shreds on a daily basis. She should stop eating out and save her money for intensive therapy. This chick is a sociopathic bully - plain and simple.

      "what a nutjob!!"

      NO, OBSESSED WITH GETTING PERFECT SERVICE!! That doesn't mean someone is crazy, because they are obsessed with something. I bet you are obsessed with something, everyone is basically with something such as people that are overweight, even a little are obsessed with food for example.

      "because anybody who can't read her mind is an idiot"

      I NEVER, EVER said for anyone to read my mind. I have *ALWAYS* PREACHED ABOUT *********************ASKING****************** THE CUSTOMER THINGS *BEFORE* DOING THINGS, DUHHH!!

      "People who are happy and content in life do not waste their time ripping an entire industry to shreds on a daily basis."

      I am happy. It has to do with I want people to *CARE* about the customer if they want our money.

      "This chick is a sociopathic bully"

      NO, I am not a bully, that's *YOU*!!

  48. Well if you expect perfect service from every single server you come in contact with then that must be because you could provide it yourself as a server. Why don't you get a job in the industry so you can set the example for servers around the country? Seriously, if you are so passionate about it you really should join the ranks. Joining the cause is how to affect change and get things done.

    I'll bet you wouldn't last a day though.

    2. Then put your money where your mouth is. Get a job as a server and prove how "lazy and uncaring" every other server in the country is. Be a pioneer for change. Stop rambling all over the web and ********DO********something about it!111!!!111

      Ask yourself if this angry obsession of yours is really worth wasting so much time over. How do you benefit from it springs? What if you found out you had a brain tumor and had six months to live? What if you got run over by a bus or fell into a vat of ranch dressing and drowned?

    3. Since when does giving an opinion make you " lying through your teeth"?????
      And I do believe the point is you can be a hard worker and still NOT be able to wait tables!
      If you have NEVER done what we do, day in and day out, you can NOT speak of constant battle being done, this is like war lady only NOT as serious, however the effects are long lasting, mental, physical, and emotionally draining.
      When have you ever greeted 12 to 18 people within 5 minutes of one another? Gotten drinks, waited for bar drinks, gotten waters for everyone, bread, bread plates, and suggestively sold appetizers, keep in mind the bar tender may have been in the back getting take out, so that further put a "lazy" server dripping in sweat, in the weeds, oh did I mention the bread maker can not keep up, so there is only 6 pieces of bread and 12 to 18 people AT DIFFERENT tables, so now I would like to know what in your expert opinion what one lazy server should do? Feel free to help anyway you can, or just direct us on the bread problem, and yes it takes about 15minutes to bake, we bake all day, and when those trays of bread come out of the oven, there are 100 more people who your not waiting on that NEED bread because they will die without it....this is life ending, their life is over if they have to wait for their bread, and their meal is reined, it's all your fault, you lazy server.
      But it's NOT over, no no no it's just begone, After you get their drinks to the table appetizers, bread, and plates, now you get to take their order, and you better know all the answers, you are only at one table you have 3 other tables with no drinks and no bread and they are looking at you and waiving at you to come over, so hurry up and get over there, or run back and check to see of your bar drinks are ready by now. Hope you sell apps to you last 3 tables to buy you some time, but if not you better hope there is lettuce, tomatoes,cucumbers, onions, croutons, and all your dressings are full, because if not you will need to refill before you can start on making you salads, yes honey you have to make all your salads, soups, desserts, coleslaw, and make sure you have soup cups, salad bowls, and soup spoons. If not go find your soup spoons first since you cant let your soup to get cold while your digging though the rack. GSS, problems.
      The list is long and from start to finish there are battles, and the people who put you at ease and treat you the way you treat them usually get it and the have done what we do do every day. Having food take a long time to cook is not the lazy servers fault, nor is it a lazy servers fault when it's cooked wrong, or RUN out of anything.
      Think about it, we knew you were coming,and all you ever eat is king crab legs, and 2 dozens raw oysters, take that up with CORPORATE, they make the rules. And foster the lies.
      Now focus what happens as soon, if you sold them apps, they are done with their apps?????
      If you would like to tell us what we are doing wrong, then it's fair to give a solution which is suitable and can be implemented.
      I am sure by now 30 to 45 minutes and hopefully your last table has finished their salads, I hope you rang in their food, B4 well B4 you brought them their salads. If not more problems...... hope by then the trout for table 310, the kitchen has a portion because they just 86 it, so run to the back because the computer wont let you ring it into the system, ALL US LAZY SERVERS, know what needs to be done, what should have been done, and how to do 100 things at once, because we are lazy, that's why things get done, because we're lazy.
      Let us know if you could get hired, and if you just want to do it for a week or two, you can work two jobs, because your not lazy, many of us also work two jobs, and some go to school as well. THE CHALLENGE IS YOURS FOR THE TAKING, HOWEVER THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS YOUR THE LAZY ONE.


      AND NO YOU WOULDN'T MAKE IT MONTH LET ALONE A LIFETIME OF SUPPORT FOR YOURSELF AND FAMILY. AGAIN MY OPINION, BASED ON FACTS.

    4. Thank you for trying to give this girl some perspective!!! Obviously she has none and believes her dining experience should be at the center of the universe. There are several things I find incredibly odd about her.

      1) She never responds to suggestions that she get a job as a server despite the fact that she is unemployed. So either she a) believes it is beneath her, or b) knows full well she couldn't do the job.

      2) In one of her rantings she commented that "she" wasn't perfect, but just a few posts up she said she is obsessed with perfect service, so obviously that means she expects it from every server she comes in contact with. So it's okay for her to make mistakes but heaven forbid a server give her 4 napkins instead of 5!

      3) When she worked in a donut shop she thought her customers were idiots. Now that she is the customer, it is the servers who are idiots.

      4) She thinks that a server taking 2 seconds to write 'thank you' on her bill is "a waste of HER time", because let's keep in mind that HER time is the ONLY time in the world that matters. On the other hand, she admits that if she were a server, she would go so far as to duck into the bathroom to cross check a customer's bill with menu. How is THAT not a waste of time? People have explained to her ad nauseum that servers have no control over prices as everything is entered into a computer. If she found out her server actually went to that much trouble (if it was even possible) and wasted 60 seconds of her PRECIOUS time, she would probably be so fired up and mad she would spontaneously combust at the table.

      Regardless of which way the wind blows, it is always wrong in her twisted, self absorbed and demented little mind. SHE is ALWAYS right and everybody else is WRONG.

      Springs, I know you are reading this given that you google yourself every day: do yourself a favor and get on with your life. Give up trying to make imperfect people (just like YOU!) do a perfect job just to please you. It isn't always about you - you are ONE in a sea of billions of humans on planet earth. You really need to get some perspective. You need to realize that servers are people too. Maybe your server isn't feeling well but couldn't call in sick because they are bills to pay. Maybe his kid is in the hospital with cancer and he is worried and distracted. Maybe her mother just died. Did you ever think about that? Probably not. You are reducing humans to robots who should be programmed to please only YOU. Twenty years from now (if you haven't died from a stroke) you will be sorry you wasted so much time and energy on this trivial topic because you will have accomplished nothing. You say you are healthy now but in 20 years you may not be so lucky. Being constantly angry catches up with you over time. You may be okay now, but this crazed anger of yours WILL catch up with you physically and you will be sick because of it. Your husband will probably be long gone, fed up with your insanity. Get some help, talk to somebody. Try to determine what is causing you so much anger that you are projecting it onto defenseless servers who are just trying to earn a living. You can say you are happy all you want but your attitude and behavior suggest otherwise, and always will until you change. Nobody will ever believe you are nothing but crazy as long as your are spouting your insanity all over the internet. Is the fact that your server gave you 3 sides of ranch instead of 4 really the hill you want to die on? Do you really want to be remembered for this? Do you want "she loved ranch dressing and hated servers" engraved on your headstone? Because at the rate you are going, that is EXACTLY what will happen.

      Oh, and for the love of all that is decent and holy - DO NOT PROCREATE AND PASS YOUR INSANITY DEEPER INTO SOCIETY!!!!!

      "nor is it a lazy servers fault when it's cooked wrong,"

      Actually, it *CAN BE* if the server puts in the order wrong or brings out food OBVIOUSLY COOKED WRONG, IT SURE AS FUCK **************CAN****************** BE!!

      For example, if I order scrambled eggs and my server brings me sunny side up eggs, it's ******OBVIOUS************ to EVERYONE'S EYES THAT'S NOT COOKED CORRECTLY YOU STUPID ASS IDIOT!!

      If my server put in the computer "sunny side up", but I asked for it "scrambled", that's my server's fault it doesn't end up coming out like I ordered.

      "Having food take a long time to cook is not the lazy servers fault"

      IT *******CAN BE********** if the server puts in the order wrong such as "medium well", but the customer ordered it "medium rare." That can affect cooking times IDIOT!

      "BASED ON FACTS."

      NO, I just told you some facts. Not everything you said is a fact and you know it!!

      "yes honey you have to make all your salads,"

      I have BEENNNN KNOWING THIS SINCE 2007 that at for example Red Lobster, the servers make the side salads, which some restaurants they make the servers make the desserts, what's your point?

    Just as the mail man puts 123 pine street in your mail box, but your address is 124 pine street. THE MAIL MAN IS AT FAULT for PUTTING A PIECE OF PAPER WITH WRONG NUMBERS IN THE WRONG BOX. It's the SAME THING as the SERVER giving the customer a piece of paper with wrong numbers on it whether it's just wrong numbers or even for a wrong table, BOTH can be SEEN and NOTICED ************************BEFORE**************************** YOU HAND IT TO THE CUSTOMER MAKING IT THE SERVER'S FAULT WHY THAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED.

    It wouldn't have happened to the customer if you would have caught the wrong price, noticed that a 9 is not a 4 and got it corrected from your manager, then the customer wouldn't have gotten the overcharge, DUHHHHHHHHHHHHH!! THIS IS THE ENTIRE POINT IDIOT! YOUR JOB IS TO *************CHARGE********* US CORRECTLY! That's a part of the job why you get a tip. YOU ARE GETTING YOUR TIP FROM GETTING THINGS ********CORRECTLY******** TO THE TABLE AS FAR AS THINGS YOU CAN CONTROL, which you CAN CONTROL IF A WRONG NUMBER IS ON A PIECE OF PAPER OR NOT BY GETTING IT FIXED FROM YOUR MANAGER OR PAYING OUT OF YOUR OWN POCKET ********BEFORE************ YOU GIVE IT TO THE CUSTOMER. Therefore, if you would notice the problem, the customer doesn't receive it making the computer not at fault, because they didn't hand me a piece of paper with non-matching numbers on it.

    A 6yr old can say which one doesn't match the other. Go back to your SESAME STREET DAYS EVEN. It's matching numbers together, that's all.

    4 is not a 9. ANYONE CAN NOTICE THIS THAT CAN READ. That means it's not a computer error.

    So you see servers have 100% ************FULL CONTROL OVER THE WRONG PRICES ON A PIECE OF PAPER *****************GETTING TO OUR ******************TABLE*******************, UNDERSTAND YOU STUPID ASS, LAZY ASS, UNCARING IDIOT!!

    You cannot blame a machine for *SOMEONE* HANDING ME A PIECE OF PAPER WITH THE WRONG NUMBERS ON IT. You can only blame the *LAST* PERSON.

    If the last person was the manager that handed me my check, then the MANAGER would be at fault, NOT the computer, the *MANAGER* that was the LAST PERSON to see the check *BEFORE* they handed it to me at my table. My server would not be at fault, but the tip would still be lowered some since the manager was part of my service that was shitty.

    If the last person to see the check was another server, another server would be at fault 100%, not my server. The tip would still be lower because the service was shitty no matter WHO in the service messed up.

    "If she found out her server actually went to that much trouble and wasted 60 seconds of her PRECIOUS time, she would probably be so fired up and mad she would spontaneously combust at the table."

    NO, NO ONE SAID THE SERVER HAD TO WAIT UNTIL THE VERY END TO CHECK EACH PRICE. You can check some of the prices while I am waiting for my food even, DUH! Also, I would rather them do that than to pay more to the restaurant than required as well as the server since an overcharge affects the tip as well and taxes.

    "Maybe his kid is in the hospital with cancer and he is worried and distracted."

    First off, if you have a kid, YOU OPENED YOUR LEGS, that's *****YOUR OWN DAMN FAULT******, NOT MINE!!

    Secondly, if you can't do the job properly, STAY THE FUCK HOME!! Just as servers don't want us to ruin their day, we don't want ours ruined. It's a TWO-WAY STREET!!

    "Maybe her mother just died."

    Then GO HOME!! Don't make our day miserable, because yours is.

    "Did you ever think about that? Probably not."

    No, because people like you aren't thinking about your customer's money, blaming it on a machine instead of being caring.

    No, because people like you see us as DOLLAR SIGNS rather than HUMAN BEINGS such as not say sorry for a mistake or acting like you don't care such as a wrong price overcharge or making someone wait 5 minutes for a refill when you had the time to go get it, but you chose to clean up instead.

    "You are reducing humans to robots who should be programmed to please only YOU."

    No, they are there to make money. They are reducing customers to DOLLAR SIGNS, that's it that we don't have feelings nor are they caring about our money, but then they want us to care about theirs. A machine doesn't make a price correct, the advertised price does. So that means you can notice a wrong price *BEFORE* you hand it over. You are acting like we are robots. It's not our job to make sure every price is right. We don't work for a tip, *YOU* DO THOUGH!!

    Why don't you start acting like your customer's money is important, then we will start to act like you are important in the tip, understand?

    You are giving us human being service, you are acting like we are a robot without feelings. Our money matters JUST AS MUCH AS YOURS. The difference is, if you care about ours, we will give you ours, a good tip if you are nice and caring. If you don't care and are lazy, we won't show much appreciation for that in the tip by giving a low tip or maybe even nothing.

    So when you say robots, think about how you are treating us. You are supposed to act like we are your kings and queens if you want that money at the end that you want us to *CARE* about YOUR MONEY AT THE END YOU HAVE TO *CARE* ABOUT OURS. YOU CONTROL THE WRONG NUMBERS THAT YOU HAND ON A PIECE OF PAPER.

    If I were a server, let's say that example, I'd see a 50 cents difference in $11.99 billed, but only $11.49 it was supposed to be by comparing the menu to the check. I'd tell my tell my manager about it and he or she would fix the issue. THEN, I'd hand the customer their check. I could actually do that since this was an entrée ******BEFORE****** the customer even GOT THEIR FOOD EVEN so NO DELAY in getting their check at all even. *****THAT******* IS HOW YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO TREAT SOMEONE IF YOU WANT THEM TO *****CARE****** BACK WITH MONEY, UNDERSTAND?

    Keep telling yourself you can notice DUH $11.99 doesn't match $11.49 and that the *MENU* is the LEGALLY ADVERTISED PRICE THAT THE CUSTOMER ORDERED FROM so you should get it fixed from your manager ***********BEFORE*************** you hand me the check. If your manager refuses, you have money of your own you can take out of your own pocket, because if you KNOWINGLY overcharge us on PURPOSE, that's stealing and if you steal from us, we will steal your tip completely.

    One more thing:

    Remember the *CHECK* *IS* at our table, the *COMPUTER* ISN'T AT OUR TABLE. So which one has to be right? THE CHECK since it's in our service, the computer doesn't, UNDERSTAND?

    The computer isn't handing me a piece of paper with a "9", but it's supposed to be a "4" according to the menu. MY SERVER IS THOUGH the person that normals hands me my check, so that check is in our service and it *CAN* be changed by the manager if you let them know about it.

    It's just like if you notice I have a wrong side dish you get the kitchen staff to correct it *BEFORE* you bring it to me wrong, same difference. You are just getting someone else to fix it *BEFORE* you bring it to me wrong. If the manager refuses to fix it, you can fix it with your own money if you expect a tip.

      Also, does your constant name calling make you feel better? Because you come across as a spoiled 5 year old. You want people to care about your every thought, emotion and desire, springy poo. But other than hate, you have zero feelings for anything or anybody outside of yourself. You are disturbed and need help.

      "you aren't shy if you are constantly pitching fits at restaurants. A shy person would just suck it up and keep quiet. You just don't want those that you scream at and insult to know your identity."

      I am in different ways, like I can go dance or do karaoke in front of people, but not go mingle at a party. I am the person at the party that is dancing by themselves or sitting eating, NOT TALKING to people. That's who I am. I am the type of person that resorted to the internet to find my husband, because I was too scared to try to meet someone in person back in the year 2000 when I met my husband. I am the type of person that is embarrassed to be on an intercom such as at an office at a receptionist desk. I am shy, was MUCH WORSE back when I was much younger.

      Another example, back in 1997 during my college dorm days, I had met some girl that invited me to go out dancing at a bar/club. She mentioned even how I never said much of anything when we were hanging out, but was all of the dance floor. I feel confident dancing, because I am good at it and even if I am not a good singer, I still am OK with karaoke too, but talking I am not. Back when I was a teenager, I lost friends because I couldn't think of things to say usually due to that I didn't go much places. My dad was VERY OVER PROTECTIVE and we rarely went on vacations, etc. For example, my first ball game I EVER went to was in 2004. I never been on a plane(I DON'T WANT TO). I never have been to Disney World or Disney Land. Basically, I grew up very introverted and got made fun of because I was so quite that kids picked up me saying I was a nerd(made good grades, perfect attendance, no detentions, etc.), called a goodie goodie, called ugly, and just basically anything they could find they did even if I wasn't fat they did, which put my self-esteem at the time even more down.

      My point is, you don't know WHO I am or what LIFE I have had. I know we all change, but I still have a part of me that is shy and that part is talking in front of crowd I wouldn't do that. I hated that when you had to do that in a speech class with everyone looking at you.

      "Which brings me back to my original point - explain to me why you won't get a job as a server. I am genuinely interested in your answer. You obviously know everything so go put that knowledge to use."

      Some of my reasons:

      1. I have to go to the bathroom often like every hour to hour an and a half sometimes, sometimes less, sometimes more which WOULD affect my tips and that type of job OR if I would hold it, would actually create health issues like UTI'S or bowel issues. I could solve my bowel issue with enemas not to have to go for that, but peeing I don't know. Even if I don't have a lot of pee, sometimes there's pressure I need to go and has been this way for at least 10yrs or so. I could try to do the job, but I don't know if I could be OK with holding it for hours on end.

      2. Not guaranteed income.

      3. No benefits

      4. Bad schedule like working weekends and nights. Including double, triple shifts due to irresponsible workers mostly. I hated that crap of working double/triple shifts when I worked at the donut shop, it sucked.

      5. Make more money possibly somewhere else, because we all know there are many cheap people out there.

      The friend thing.... um your nuts, and you can't keep a job, nor a friend.
      And I guess the stupid cashier should know all the prices too, or all the sales that are on, because it's not the computers fault, the computer is never at fault.
      If the computer is programed wrong...... how the hell would anyone, anyone know by glance or should memorize all the prices. If anyone could do that, then I am sure they would be counting cards somewhere, making bank, not waiting on your dumb ass. Get lost. Your far from nice, and I could care less about all your issues, think about that, before you crucify anyone you come into contact with, because you have too much time on your hands, because going on about 11.99 vs. 11.49 is about is dumb as you.
      Go away, did you get baker acted, is that why you were missing, or did you finally get your trip to Disney World?
      You are barking mad! Those are the facts!

      "they just want to tip poor, and complain to the manager."

      NO, I want *********************PERFECT SERVICE******************** WITH ****************NO PROBLEMS****************!!

      I also want to tip 25%-30% and MORE with TOTALLY PERFECT SERVICE AND WE HAVE HAD THIS LOTS OF TIMES BEFORE, SO IT *CAN* BE DONE!!

      "you can't keep a job, nor a friend."

      That's NOT TRUE AT ALL!!

      "And I guess the stupid cashier should know all the prices too, or all the sales that are on,"

      NO, a cashier in a store would have to go to the physical shelf to find the prices which would take wayyyy too long to check each item such as let's say a person has a basket full of items, that may take a half an hour in a place such as Walmart to check each price. Memorizing doesn't help, because of another associate would come by to change it and they are checking out people at the time, how would they know the change unless they went to the physical shelf? A server on the other hand can just compare a booklet called a menu that takes literally for 2 people under a minute to a minute at most to check the prices and especially if not all the prices are on the check such as a lot of menus don't have soft drinks or their bar drinks even on the menu.

      As far as fast food cashiers go, they got the board right behind them that they *COULD* verify the prices, but since they aren't getting tipped, I don't blame them from not caring unlike the severs.

      "because it's not the computers fault, the computer is never at fault."

      Let me ask you, how can the "Computer" be at fault when that computer is ********NOT*********** AT OUR ********TABLE*********, HUH? It's actually *********IMPOSSIBLE************, because the piece of paper called a "CHECK" is the thing that has to be correct, ****************NOT************* WHAT IS IN THE COMPUTER. If you find that the piece of paper has numbers that doesn't matched the advertised price on the menu, you go to the manager to get it fixed just as if you would have let's say a missing baked potato that you tell the expeditor to fix it. All you are doing is getting a co-worker to fix it ************BEFORE********** you bring that piece of paper(NOT THE ENTIRE COMPUTER) to the table, UNDERSTAND that the computer is *NOT* in our service so it's ****************TRULY IMPOSSIBLE*********** for a computer to be at fault here, because the computer doesn't hand us that piece of paper called a check. A REAL, LIVE HUMAN BEING DOES that can read, just like the customer can find the wrong price, so can the server. It has ***********NOTHING*********** to do with a computer, because a computer is not handing us the check, understand?

      "If the computer is programed wrong...... how the hell would anyone, anyone know by glance or should memorize all the prices."

      WTF, WTF, DID I SAY **************ANYTHING*************** about "Memorizing", HUH?

      I SAID YOU DO AS I, THE CUSTOMER DID which was *************************TAKE A MENU AND COMPARE *****EACH PRICE********* TO THE PRICES ON THE CHECK YOU STUPID ASS, LAZY, AND UNCARING IDIOT!!

      YOU COMPARE THE MENU TO THE CHECK. YOU COMPARE MENU TO THE CHECK. YOU COMPARE THE MENU TO THE CHECK.

      How many times do I have to say this before you make up shit I didn't say? I NEVER ONCE SAID "MEMORIZE" ANYTHING YOU STUPID. LAZY, and UNCARING FOOL!

    WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO EXPLAIN IT'S A COMPARISON OF THE *CHECK PRICES AND THE MENU PRICES, HUH? WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO EXPLAIN THAT A COMPUTER IS NOT IN OUR SERVICE, HUH?

    1. Explain all you want NOT all the prices, or substations are listed on your menu. It would have to be printed all the time dumb ass.
      So stop writing, comparing, and commenting on WHAT YOU KNOW NOT!!
      You are a waste!
      So check yourself back into the looney bin, and make some imaginary friends.
      And the computer has EVERYTHING to do with service, if you have to ring it up to get it made, or the computer goes down, so you can't cash it out, and the only prices for drinks, substations, and such are in the computer, there is no list or menu price.
      DO I NEED TO SPEAK CRAZY FOR YOU TO PROCESS THE FACT THAT ALL PRICES ARE NOT ON THE MENU.
      Get a life, and a job. You are barking mad!
      Go away!
      Just because you suck at taking care of people, doesn't mean we most of us do, so go find a hobby.

      "You are a waste!"

      You are a waste, because I have PROVEN YOU WRONG that there's NO COMPUTER at OUR TABLE, but you keep trying to blame it that somehow it had a mechanical arm and handed me that piece of paper called a check to me, when it doesn't. A REAL LIVE HUMAN BEING HANDS ME THAT CHECK, NOT THE COMPUTER. SO it's 100% IMPOSSIBLE for a computer that isn't at our table to be at fault for *US* getting the wrong price.

      Let's say if as your server, I'd compare the menu prices to your check, notice that $11.99 when it was supposed to be according to the menu $11.49, I would go to my manager, he or she would get it fixed and then when I would bring you your check, WALLAH, you didn't receive the overcharge.

      *(THAT)* IS WHAT THE SERVER'S JOB IS STUPID!! I would have prevented you from getting the overcharge. TELL ME HOW does a COMPUTER PLAY INTO THAT WHEN **********I************* AS *****************YOUR SERVER************** *******PREVENTED********** YOU FROM GETTING THE PROBLEM AT YOUR TABLE, HUH?

      It's IMPOSSIBLE for anyone else, anything else to be at fault except for the *LAST PERSON* that HANDED THE CUSTOMER THE CHECK which is the person that WOULD be at fault for not noticing the wrong numbers on a piece of paper *******BEFORE********** they handed it to me at my table.

      So you see, I PROVED *YOU* WRONG, because it's the TRUTH and you KNOW IT!!

      There's no computer at my table. YOU CAN'T POSSIBLY BLAME A MACHINE THAT DIDN'T ***********HAND************* ME THE PIECE OF PAPER, THAT'S ON THE LAST PERSON THAT HANDED ME THAT PIECE OR PAPER. I don't care where the numbers originated from, the fact that you brought it to my table anyway is the point instead of verifying the menu and the check, catching the problem and then that way I don't get the overcharge, so *YOU* as the server CAUSED ME TO GET THE OVERCHARGE. The example of me being your server, you wouldn't have gotten the wrong price at your table, because I would have taken steps to *PREVENT* it. That would be my job to *CHARGE* you correctly and I can prevent it.

      "So check yourself back into the looney bin, and make some imaginary friends."

      That's you who hallucinates a computer at customer's tables or computers having mechanical hands handing us the check. NONE OF THOSE EXIST AND YOU KNOW IT!!

      As I said before, I already went over if there are no prices for the item, then you have no advertised price to go by, DUHHH! I NEVER ONCE said anything about the server being accountable for non-advertised prices, did I? If anything, I even said that most menus don't list the soft drink/tea and bar drink prices.

    4. You are nuts, and still ranting about things that you know nothing about.
      But what else is new?
      So go over your mental health chart, and go away!
      Read your post......who has the time, some of us work!
      You must love to waste time, and energy, too bad for us!
      I wish we could have prevented you!
      The computer has all the calculations for way more than your outback order, and no one is listening to you or your explanations.
      So beat it!

      "Prevent the problem by not showing up."

      NO, prevent the problem by being a **********HARD, CARING WORKER**********IF YOU WANT AND EXPECT OUR MONEY STUPID!!

      "Yup you are a NON-WORKER! So please stop trying to explain your point. Because just like you they are NOT valid."
