i work at a 4 star restaurant.
that soda that you just paid 2.49 for, i can have as many as i want for free.
that cappuccino that you just bought for 2.99, i also get as many as i want for free
that bistro burger that you paid 11.95, well i get that for 5.00, and depending on the chef, i get it for free.
also, if you have french fries on you plate, and the plate is still in the window waiting for the rest to come out; we will eat your fries.
we talk so much shit about everyone
we dont actually spit in food. we dont drop food on the floor. and we wont nuke cold food.
your waiter hates you. all he wants is for you to eat as fast as you can and order as booze as you can, and get the fouch out of there for another person.
if you send back, untouched food, we do eat it.
that single scoop of blood orange sorbet that you paid 4.59, is free for me.
there is nothing that we hate more than when a guest wants to change tables, or when a large party arrives is different groups, because it causes the entire restaurant to halt for a second while host re-ajusts your location on the computer, you server goes to the kitchen to tell the chef to change the ticket from table 19 to table 35.
buss boys make more than the hosts. FACT.
the managers only came to your table to see how you were doing because you bought 3 bottles of wine, not because you seen like interesting people.
waiters make between $2.50-3.00 an hour, bussers between $4-5 an hour so we heavily really on tips.
WE REMEMBER BAD GUESTS!
