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....

I Am Here

Ok, well spelling, grammatical and errors of such aside, I am still here.

Am I posting as much as I had in the past?

No.

Am I posting as much as I would like?

No.

Am I retired and pulling a "Server Stories" with no posts for six months?

No to that as well.

I appreciate people reading this site, there are many posts in the archive for new readers, I am happy some people have enjoyed this blog, equally as happy that some people have been pissed or aggravated.

The fact is this, I am working part time in this industry as of now with an increased amount of credit hours in college. Beyond that, the fact is that last semester I had upwards of what end up being forty some pages in essays, tem papers etc.

I will have as many or more this semester, so I am limited on what I am expecting myself to write.

I am not out of stories or controversies, nor am I wanting to stop as of now.

As a goal I would like to post at least once a week, something I have fallen sort of for the last few
months, something that I do regret.

I ask patience, or if it is your desire, this is a free country and you can choose something else to read or comment on.

I am just as happy having ten hits a day as a thousand as this has been a forum for me to vent on what I deem as a release for me or as what I view as injustice.

I enjoy your feedback and comments, and as always any and all are free to read, comment or disagree,

The Secret Server.

I'm number one! Love your blog, post as often as you can. I spent 10 years in the industry doing EVERY job in the restaurant. VERY glad I got out, and you always remind me why I did.

Posting about the lack of posting does NOT count as a post! Just kidding, post when you want as much as you want, but thanks for the update.

I've been missing you; your stories keep me sane at my desk job. :)

Yep the votes are you still need a good slap on your spoiled ass. Lay off the porn and get back to business.

Take it easy, I loved reading each and every single post in your archives and I'll love reading future posts as well. Being in the customer service industry myself on and off for many years (mostly retail) I know how off the wall customers can be. I enjoy reading the experiences other people have to share - and knowing that there are morons out there everyone, not just at my store.

Good luck in school!

I'm with Hoodlum. Your stories are increasingly painting you as the weak and lazy person that you probably are in real life. From your ambitious beginnings with predictions of following in Waiterrant's shoes (you can deny it but it's all cached on the web) you have degenerated to posts about skipping your classes or ditching work to play video games, interspersed between occasional promises of new posts that never materialize. No, you have no obligation to write but your claims that you are too busy ring false. Face it; you are a lazy cur and undeserving of the tips you feel entitled to.

Ah Brad, you truly are a baiting troll, something that I usually don't dignify with an answer. However your assumptive attitude about who and what I am in real life will get an answer. First thing is your argument that I am lazy, while it certainly may be true, your backing it up with the statement that I skip class as well as work rings false. It is a common form that many liars such as yourself when arguing a point, exaggeration based on no facts what so ever besides a few smart ass posts.

While no one has any reason either to believe me or not, I have missed only two classes in the last year and I know my GPA speaks for that. As well I only have called in sick once in the last seven years, something both my old and current GM can attest to.

But yet you catch me on my lazy day, yes friends, on Sunday I neither work nor do any class work. Frankly I don’t feel like putting up a post today either, so if that makes me a “cur” so be it, the eighteenth century wants its insult back btw.

Yes I traded so I didn’t have to work V-Day, neither did I work the day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve or on New Years. Frankly because I’m tired of waiting on amateur diners and the self righteous, such as yourself.

Now I certainly have my faults, do I have weaknesses and bouts of apathy, sure. But in your life on top of the hill Brad do you ever look in the mirror and see a condescending man, a person that has lied, a person that has glaring faults as everyone else has? Well if you don’t see that, then you are one of us that lies to himself as well.

He who is without sin anyone???

As well I don’t care if you feel I am entitled to my tips either. Because I do the work and well, work doesn’t breed entitlement, it breeds earned income. I’m sure most of your waiters, barkeeps and such feel you’re an ass, for instance, but are nice to you because it is their job.

I’m sure that as soon as they hit the kitchen door sentiments of, “Oh not that prick again,” ring true.

Hey man, I hope you don't think that that Brad is me. I had to change the name to this because of that dickweed.

You are entitled to post whenever the hell you want to. It is your blog.

Cheers.
