So this weekend I watched a movie called Waiting. It was about a bunch of youngsters who work at a bar/restaurant and it shows pretty much what goes on behind the scenes, as in the kitchen with your food. Pretty scary if you ask me, but the movie was hilarious. It stars Ryan Reynolds and a few others that you probably know to see, Dane Cook is also in it, not a huge part but still funny nonetheless.

I have a co-worker that whenever we go to lunch, she has to find something wrong with something, which irks me to no end. I don't believe we have ever gone to eat without her complaining, so I stopped going out with her. Pretty simple, I don't want my food getting all kinds of disgusting things done to it just because I'm with you. If you know this movie, some of you may think it's exaggerated, well methinks NOT. I do believe this kind of stuff does happen.

So now here's my question, when you go to a restaurant are you nice to the wait staff or are you totally obnoxious? Are you a complainer? If you get food that is not what you were expecting, do you send it back? I'm nice to them, I mean if my steak is not done how I like it, I will ask them NICELY to cook it more or whatever. I will not however be a total b!atch, and after seeing this movie I suggest that you not be either Laughing

Re: What Is Your Restaurant Behaviour Like?

I think kindness goes a long way. If there is something wrong I will speak up but kindly and ask the "If you don't mind could you please.....".

Its funny you made this post because about a week ago I went to lunch with my grandmother and her boyfriend (loud Italian), they are both in their mid 80's. Well we went to a deli like restaurant where the food is really good. The boyfriend wanted shrimp cocktail which they didn't serve. They did have shrimp salad so he ask and the waiter described it in detail to him. He got what he ordered just like the waiter described and he blew up. Its not what he wanted, he's not eating this S**T" (yes he used that word), "I'm not paying for this s**T" (which by the way I paid for the whole meal), then the final was "You can shove it". OMG my poor grandma was in tears and I'm yelling at the Boyfriend "Dave shut the hell up". I apologized to the poor waiter and the ppl at the next table and I left a large tip. Needless to say Dave can shove it if he thinks I'm taking him out to eat ever again. Poor grandma she was crying and I had to talk to her after to calm her down. I have no idea is she is speaking to him.

Re: What Is Your Restaurant Behaviour Like?

I'm generally very nice and polite to anyone I meet, ever, including any wait-staff. The only time I ever get sh*tty with anyone is if they get sh*tty with me first, or have it coming in some way. I'm especially nice to anyone serving me food though, since they could easily hock a loogie in it without me ever knowing.

Re: What Is Your Restaurant Behaviour Like?

I always try and be cool to the wait staff for that same reason, it always works out too because I don't think I've ever encountered a rude waiter before. But I definitely don't relish the idea of having someone dip their balls in my food before I get it, so yeah make nice with them...always.
I used to be a waiter when I was like 18 and I never spat in anyone's food or anything like that, nor did any of my co-workers to my knowledge, but I would wager it happens someplaces just not where I go please Beg / Praying

Hahahaha, oh man, I've got stories of friends of mine who used to mess with peoples food back in high school. It'll turn your stomach. A couple friends of mine worked together at Pizza Hut once, and they'd have a big pot of the pizza sauce all mixed up. One of them would go "Hey <other friend's name> look", and then hack up some lung butter, spit it in the sauce and stir it all in, so everybody who ordered something with sauce got a little. Friggin' uncool. I think people who do sht like that need to be locked up for life.

The same guy used to mess with his co-workers (more friends of mine) and for example, would see that one of them was busy, but eating a slice of pizza, taking bites every now and then, and setting it down while busy ... so when he wasn't lookin, would take that super hot jar of shakable red pepper, and lift the cheese up off the slice of pizza, douce it in those peppers, like a thick layer of it, then put the cheese back on so you couldn't see the difference. Along would come <other friend's name> and take a bite, and .. you can imagine what happened. Laughing

I ran with some insane friends.
