Oh I agree, but the truth of the matter is, polite people get better coustomer service.
Do not start asking for the things you need until everyone has been severed.
Snap, whistle, or shout across the room for a server’s attention.
Interrupt your server while they are with another table.
Try(even if you think you’re helping) to remove things from the tray.
Be a low talker, speak up!!
Stand around in highly traveled walk ways.
Roll your eyes or have a bad attitude.
Leave your child’s mess all over the floor, pick up most of it, we can vacuum up the rest.
Forget to say please.
Forget to say thank you.
Stiff your server.
The basic tip for a server is 15% of the bill. If she/he did an outstanding job it’s 20%.
If your party was difficult and unable to follow these general guide lines, and the service was still successful, tip 20%+. If you are in a group and you are not paying, make sure someone is tipping appropriately.
Again, fill my glass and check up every 15 minutes. If those two rudimentary events don't happen, there is no tip. Those rules should be ingrained in any server
he asked me what I would like to drink, I ordered a Coke, and then I said I'm actually ready to order
Unless your sever asks you for a food order at this point, it isn’t the best time to try and place one.
I'd rather sit there and find out firsthand how long it will take before the waiter/Waitress remembers about us, rather than start causing a commotion.
