The Insane Waiter

Running wild on customers, chefs, owners and managers since 1997. I bring to you, The Insane Waiter. What do bring to your table? A crisp bottle of San Pellegrino ? Perhaps a lovely seared Sashimi Tuna? Start off with a wonderful bottle from Tuscany perhaps? Why I'll be more than happy to bring you your White Zinfandel and Chicken Caesar. No you can't order the mac and cheese off the kids menu and sorry no, we don't serve cheese sticks....

When Life Gives You Lemons...

Cruisin' by the bar the other night I was pulled aside by one of my cohorts...

As Troy points over to his table he says, "hey check this out!"

I look over, it was a group of housekeepers from the hotel.

Not wanting to be stereotypical, but hotel people tip like shit.

Even the managers are like that, and they make like five times more,
so I was like, "sorry buddy."

"No that's only the beginning, look what they're doing!"

Well I guess when they sat down they all ordered water, being as it would actually cost them money to order something else...

Well they had brought their own drinks.

Lemonade Packets!!!

They had asked for sugar and were making their own lemonade!!!

I was incredulous!

"Trashy fucks," was Troy's answer.

Mine as well.

If you're too cheap to pay for a drink in a restaurant, drink water.

At least you won't look like a total asshole...

I hate that shit more than anything, bringing your own food or drink to a restaurant or bar, it's just poor manners.

We're a business, there to sell you our own product, not have you hang out and do what you want.

Which will bring me to this next post...

At least that guys table brought their own packets of lemonade. At my restaurant they cant even bring that. We get old biddies asking for waters, a bowl of lemons, and sweet-n-low. Ugh. Its comforting (somewhat) to hear that people are doing this low-brow s**t all over!

Kick them out. Tell them it's your policy that people can't bring in outside food. There's a chance that they'll win the lottery tomorrow, and suddenly have a lot more spending cash, which they now refuse to spend at your restaraunt. But other than that, what have you got to lose?
