Date Night

for date night, my man and i went to the Olive Garden. we do date night twice a month, but every body says it doesn't count because we always take our daughter with us. well, this time, we had a babysitter so just us could go out to eat.
Olive Garden was a dissapointment. im pretty sure our waiter was high as a kite, tables that got seated after us recieved their breadsticks and salad before us, the table behind us who was also seated after us put their food order in before us. we were not greeted by the waiter until 10 minutes after we sat down, and when he came to our table, we knew what we wanted to eat and our drink order. but he only took our drink order.
we were pissed. this is our first night out by ourselves in months, and we get this kind of service. luckily it was early enough that we left and went some where else to have dinner.

oh, and the manager talked to us like children on our way out. we told her what happen and she spoke to us in baby talk " oh no. im so sorry. can i offer you a gift card". we said we were never coming back so don't worry about it.

bad dinner service... lets hear it!

  • i've actually been pretty lucky and cant think of any story like that. i usually always get good enough servers.
    now on the other hand, since im a waitress, and i can tell you some bad customer storys!
    i wonder, do people know that i only make $ 5 an hour? do they know they are supposed to tip 18 - 20% ?? do they not care?? i get some pretty ghetto people! i get no tips all the time... 2 $ tips on 100 $ checks! Once I was called an asshole because I didnt know what time the mall closed. i could go on forever ....

  • ya i have been a waitress and that does suck. you do not get paid well at all, and tips are unpredictable. people can be really rude. but i can assure you, we were completely nice, even when we left. we didnt yell or get mean at all.
