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....

Hello and Happy New Year!

Well folks sorry its been a bit between posts, I'll have new stories up on the first part of the week.

Here's a small tidbit from one of my joyful holiday tables...

A lady to me.

"I don't want to be bitchy..."

I finish the sentence for her.

"But you're gonna be aren't you."

As I said to the cop who let me off on a public drunkeness charge on New Year's Eve:

Happy Yew Near!

Love,

Uncle R.

P.S.---Who's the douche bag anonymous above?

Happy New Year :)

Oh, and since the anonymous poster up top forgot to put this in-this is nothing like waitterrant, waitterant is so much better, ect :P

LOL, Insane, I liked that...your customer probably laughed when you finished her sentence. If using the right delviery, they rarely get MAD. That was funny. We missed you.

Way to go Hawkeyes, assuming you care...oh wait, you're a foodserver; obviously you didn't go to college!

Nephew Dude:

Speaking as a Stanford Ph.D. whose landlord was a Nobel laureate, I'm not impressed by badmanager's pretentious elitism.

Regarding your delivery to customers, I'd bet that IF YOU DELIBERATELY MODULATED YOUR SPEAKING PACE & TONE OF VOICE, YOU COULD GET AWAY WITH SAYING PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING.

You'd be surprised how often I think of you. Like, EVERY TIME I enter a restaurant and a server takes care of me. Whatever faults this uncle of yours has, no server can tell you I'm not a conscientious customer.

Love,

Uncle R.

"I went to Stanford, and my landlord blah blah and my gardener invented green beans, blah blah and my mailman knows Alan Greenspan's accountant blah blah blah..."

I have read every entry on your blog and enjoyed it very much. Thanks for the laughs.

I really can't (or dont want to) believe the way some people act...

Keep posting.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to point out that you don't update your blog as often as waiterrant does.

Insane Waiter I want to kiss you!

one of my personal favorites..

"i don't mean to be a pain......"

"i usually NEVER complain...."

or just the declaration "i'm going to be a pain... *giggle*" (it's not cute ma'am)
