I've never, nor would I ever spit or do anything disgusting to anyones food. In fact, I've actually refused to take food to my customers because of
things I've seen go wrong in a kitchen. (I know that puts you all at ease) If nothing else though, if anyone is worried..tip how they used to. You
come in, you're seated, tip the waitress to "insure" good service.
I had a few that would do that and they were the best. After the first time
they did this I was ready. If I saw them coming through the door their drinks were on the table waiting and everything.
I worked at Jc Pennys for awhile and I really loved it although it could be rough. Keeping an eye out for shoplifters, cleaning up after customers
CONSTANTLY! It was great though. Unfortunately I lost my temper on management and quit. I went on to work at a waffle house after that. I worked
graveyard for almost a year and a half for $2.13 an hour...but I loved my customers and the people I worked with. I work at a pub now while I'm in
school and it's way better. I mean, it's rough being on your feet for so long and running around but as far as that goes it's not too different
from retail. I'm still dealing with customers that can be a pain, I'm still on my feet the whole shift..the only difference really is crappier
minimum wage and weak wrist. There are some nights that I can come out with more than I made in a week at pennys..then there are nights where I won't
have a table my entire shift. That's the reason I never go without two jobs anymore. People go into this line of work knowing that it's a hit or
miss situation so really we have no room to complain. >^.^< It's too bad more servers don't actually enjoy their job because that's the key to
making the money right there. If it's obvious you're unhappy and that you want to tell the customer to go you know where then nobody is going to
want to tip them! Can't be cold. I tend to tip more myself because of the fact that I know what it's like first hand however I myself still tip by
quality. If you come to my table with an attitude, my glass doesn't stay full, etc, etc..then the tip gets lower and lower until poof! I just wish
they would pay us a regular minimum wage rather than what's considered minimum wage for a server. That would put an end to so much woah for me
whining business. *shrugs* I'm sorry you had a cold waitress..go somewhere where they have pleasant waitresses that love their jobs..and make your
visit enjoyable..like me.
haha Wow, I'm a total dork!
(Strange fact though..the minimum wage for a waitress is $2.13 in Oklahoma and in New Jersey whereas the norm. minimum wage is I believe is 2 or 3
dollars more in NJ than in OK because of the cost of living. That did kinda blow my mind when I moved.)
