Have you ever worked in a restaurant?

Ahhh, I remember working at Arby's. The meat slicer. The bun warmer. The fryers and the drivethru. Bitchy customers. Cheesy uniforms.

One time a guy came through with a MONKEY seated next to him!

  • I've worked in a few. I didn't mind serving other than the few bitchy customers that tried to make my job hell, but I tried to ignore them. I made better money serving than I did after I graduated college.

  • I worked at a steak house as a waitress. The tips were great most of the time. What is it about rich folks, they were usually  the worst  tippers.

  • i currently work at mcds and we get the craziest, pickiest people ever come in and bitch at us about how their food is not perfect.drives me crazy, but i try to ignore it and be happy anyway! its really great when someone nice comes thru and maybe gives you a compliment or something because it (a lot the time!) just makes the rest of the day better because you feel better about yourself! so next time you go thru a drive thru, be nice! lol

  • i was a waitress for a year at a family type restraunt. i sucked at it. and the lady who was in chargw of the waitresses was a real b####. by the time i was there one year there was only one other waitress who'd been there longer. at least out of the girls who worked in the evenings. some of the girls who quit made a point of going in the office and telling her off. her and her hubby owned the place together but he mostly stayed in the kitchen. finally i heard he made her go into treatment for alcohol because they couldn't keep waitresses. i admitt i wasn't any good at it but they were so desperate for help they still begged me to stay. i had to say no.

  • Hey, I did that today! I've worked at Ryan's Steakhouse, a horrible Italian restaraunt, Wendy's, Subway, and Taco Bell. I just took 2 months off, and when I stepped into the walk-in cooler, the smell hit me and I was flooded with visions of every restaraunt I've worked at, kind of like your life flashing before your eyes! I think it's the nearly frozen cardboard that does it. I waited tables for 6 weeks and will NEVER do it again! My favorite was the bakery in Ryans. I remember a night when we pulled in $10,000 in just one hour. I managed to keep up somehow.
