Just assuming this is what guests think when their party of 4 magically turns into a party of 8 without notifying anyone

Anonymous said: What about when a fellow server makes it painfully obvious he's flirting.. I just started at a new place a week ago n he asked me on a date n it's just strange to me lol ugh I'm kinda awkward when we open together now got advice or a gif for me ?

That can be insanely awkward.

Personally, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with dating a coworker.  However, you have to be sure both of you can be mature about it if something goes wrong.

But if you don’t want to date him, it’s perfectly okay to say no!  And he shouldn’t give you any problems for it because it’s your choice.  When a coworker that I wasn’t interested in has asked me out on a date before, I just told him I don’t really date coworkers.

  They seem to take that better than just a “No.” 

Just give it some time.  It’ll get less awkward!  As long as he’s not pushing it, things will get easier.  Especially since the first few weeks at a new job are always a little awkward.  If he’s cool, joking around and being nice might help things to be less weird too.

But if he makes you feel uncomfortable (keeps inappropriately flirting, being pushy, etc) then tell a manager because that is sexual harassment.

Hope that helped!

That look you give customers when you want to kill them but you don’t want to get fired/imprisoned for murder:

When we're on a 30+ minute wait

  • Guest: *complaining* Really I can't believe the wait's that long blah blah we're starving blah we can't wait that long jesus christ.
  • Me: Would you like me to take your information, then?
  • Guest: Well yeah, I guess we don't have any other choice
  • In my head: Actually yeah you can choose to leave and go annoy the fuck out of someone else.
  • What I say: What's your name, sir?

“So, I’m not gonna have to pay the five bucks again when I come back, right?”

We have live shows at work sometimes.  I usually get stuck working the door.  This is basically what happens.
Or they insist on taking off their wristbands and get angry when I ask to see them.

I don’t work in food service, but I assume it happens to other restaurants a lot as well.

It doesn’t happen all the time, but it happens enough. To the point where it’s like what’s the point of having me here Hahaha

I legit had a couple ladies that wanted a dirty table (and I mean dishes and napkins and crumbs everywhere).  I told them we just needed to bus it, and they were all “Okay, so we’ll sit there and then you guys can clean up around us.” Ummm…no.  And then they looked at me like I was the crazy one when I told them we had to clean it first BECAUSE THAT’S ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING.

And then there’s the people who make you wipe down an already clean table because of a smudge that was most likely just from the table drying.

I had a couple that sat down at a dirty table and started eating the bread that was left there. I was like ummm y’all nasty. Seriously, how hard is it to wait like 2 min to clean a table… I’ve had people walk in and just sit at dirty tables and nobody knew that they were a new table and they came up like 5 min later asking for a server. I was like where did you come from and why are you sitting at a dirty table?!

Barf.  Where do these people come from?  Like have they just never to a restaurant before? How do they not know that’s super weird.
