My number 1 pet peeve about waitressing...

I can't stand it when people talk down to me, like I'm stupid, because I am a waitress. I have a college degree. I am NOT an idiot. I'm only working this stupid job because I am going to GRADUATE school and with the economy right now, I have to take what I can get.

DON'T talk down to me like I'm uneducated.

Some people are really pathetic!! I'm sorry people are treating you like that you don't deserve it!

Obviously you never waited my table. Half the time the waitress sits down with me in brief intervals. You have a hard job and I appreciate people who are workers!

I used to waitress and I hated that. I get that where I work now, in retail. It's ridiculous.

Yeah that would really bother me too. I've encountered that to an extent working retail, but I have never waited tables. I've had plenty of friends who worked in the restaurant industry, and I've heard about the way people can be. I always tip really fat, and my fiance and I make sure to stack our plates and trash neatly so that our table will be easy to clean. Many waiters/waitresses have commented that we must have worked as servers before, and it's funny because that isn't true for either of us. We're just considerate, and it's sad that not everybody is. I'm not trying to be self-righteous, I just don't think it's too much to ask that we treat each other with respect.

I know exactly how you feel. I cocktail waitressed for years at concert venues in Philly. It wasn't' uncommon for me to have men grabbing my ass or for them to call me "beer bitch." It's frustrating when you know you're smarter than most (if not all!) of the jerks treating you that way.

oh i feel your pain I watressed for three years...my favorite was always the clap or snap then the pointing to the cup for a refill (especially when i was taking other orders)...no words exchanged because they were too good to use their words on a stupid ol waitress....sigh, i am glad those days are over.

NOT okay.

That used to drive me crazy when I served too. I think the way someones treats a server is a big indication of someone's character.
