Excuse me "Waitress"
Has a waitress ever made it so you didn't want to go back to a restaurant?? Apparently, yes. I asked this question on Facebook and it kinda went nuts with comments. First of all I have to say..being a waiter or waitress at any level restaurant has to be one of the hardest jobs..period. With that said..they gotta know that the heat is on with every single customer. We all judge. How will the service be? How much will we tip? Will that tip send a message? Does your waitress need another frickin' message along with everything else they're juggling on any given day???? My guess is no. But a couple of keys points about the WaitressFest on Facebook today. One person, who is a waitress, said "you either have it or you don't being a waitress." I think that's true. So let's say it is..WHEN you have a bad one..and we've all had one, right? SHOULD we tip them a penny? Somebody else suggested that. I think that's harsh. But the listeners' point was that it sends a message that they were not satisfied with the service. Interesting to handle it that way. My thought today in bringing up the question was that we should all think about waitresses and waiters. Are we the first line of exposure to our customers? Do we "represent" our companies? And if so..what kind of tip would our customers leave after we've done our jobs? Think about it...((Bonus Keyword: "tip")) Photo by Dave Kallaway
