This Is Really Rude and It Really Winds Me Up
Can they not see I am with this other table. Do they not have any manners?
I tell you in the past little while where I work people are getting a bit much. They come in and they cannot wait one second before they are ready to order.
What happened to actually sitting down and enjoying a dinner out? Why are they in such a hurry.
The list goes on.
One guy tonight really wanted his bill before him and his girl were even finished their dessert. He even interrupted me serving food to my other table of 11 beside him. Before I finished putting the plates down he called out handing me the billfold that he only wanted 10 back. I quipped you are in a hurry I will get it for you.
They were still there 5 minutes later and he called me over and said I didn't tip you enough here is another 5. Great service! I said he didn't have to do that. He said he did.
At that moment my faith was restored in the human race.
