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....

Jesus, this thing is right on! This was the first weekend in 10 years I did not wait tables, bartend, or manage a restaurant on Mother's Day, and the agony is still fresh in my mind. Love your blog, you're getting as cool as The Waiter in my book.

My wife explained to me last night that she actually gets shellfish allergic customers at the sushi bar where she works. I'm still speechless.

Watching this video reminded me of all the hellish tables I was forced to wait on at one point when I worked in the corporate food service industry. I'm very VERY lucky to work for a FABULOUS independant bar that allows me to tell people exactly what I think of them (if the situation deems in necessary). My heart stays with you, waiter, and everyone else out there forced to deal with picky, angry sons of bitches (and sometimes the bitches themselves)!

I think I had that table last week. Do people ever realize how stupid they sound sometimes?!

"Um, can I get that with no garlic? I HATE garlic."

"Um... well, ma'am, I don't know what to tell you, this IS an Italian restaurant..."

Story of my life.

i definately ordered no salt! no salt! and there were great big grains of it!

You know what makes that video even more true-to-life? Those bitches didn't say 'please' or 'thank you' once.

That was too funny. I have a huge respect for anyone in the service industry, but especially wait staff. I am sorry to say that I have seen worse than that!

Sometimes, I really wonder about people. Thank God I've never had customers that damn stupid... yet

That was shot at Fab's in Studio City! I love that place! I've been there quite a few times, never thought to make all those mods, though.

Had a lady come into the restaurant with a bunch of food allergies, apparently. She brought the server, manager, and others down completely! Wouldn't give us a chance to figure out what to give her...didn't help us at all.

I'll always remember what a friend of mine said to a person who said he had a lot of food allergies, "So, what you mean to say is that your genetically inferior?"

He says the same thing to me when my allergies act up.

That video represents modification...L.A. style.

I rembmber this type. Like the lady who asks "Does this soup have a chicken base?" "Yes, it does" "Well I can't have that. I'm a VEGETARIAN!!! I'll Have the egg and cheese bagel instead" Wait... you won't eat the full grown adult chicken buit you'll eat the unborn fetus of a chicken?? Make up your mind lady!!!
