The 12 Customers Every Restaurant Employee Would Like To Strangle

9. The Absolute Monster


Server ≠ servant.

Snapping your fingers and screaming at your waiter are a good way to ruin someone’s day, and an even better way to get your food tampered with. Treat your waiter like a human being with feelings and a job to do… because they are.

10. The Condescending Prick


Contrary to popular belief, working in a restaurant is a real job.

If you feel the need to make your waiter feel worthless for not having a 9-5, suit-and-tie, sold-my-soul-to-corporate-America type job, it’s a safe bet that you are both insecure and miserable. And everyone knows it.
