Are You A Terrible Customer?


Published at 1:07pm 6th June 2016.

Working in the restaurant industry can be a stressful job and this forum makes you think twice before ordering food…

Reddit user ‘Saint_Dichotomy’ asked the following question: “Servers, bussers, cooks and hosts: What are some simple things customers can do to make your jobs easier or less annoying?”

One user wishes people would have better table manners.

DaHero91 said: “The ‘putting your knife and fork together on the plate when you're finished’ rule of dining isn't being taught anymore but it is REALLY helpful. More people should learn the etiquette.”

Another appears to have an issue with parents and messy kids.

Pressconference said: “Don't take your baby and have them throw rice all over the place and then laugh about it.”

He continues… “Don't have babies at all.”

Dandrewwreddit said: “Don't make a huge mess. Especially if you're an adult. And if you have kids, clean up after them.”

It is all about being nice, according to NrCoolGuy.

“Be nice to me and I'll be nice to you. I always do everything in my power to make your experience as good as it can be. Things will invariably go wrong occasionally, I will try to fix them. Calm down and enjoy the food, your drinks and your company. A touch of courtesy will make your experience much better.”

And who knew splitting the cheque could be such an issue?

JoanofArc5 said: “Don't split the cheque, especially if you are a large group and have been randomly ordering beers are night. It is very difficult to keep track on a busy night. Math isn't that hard guys. If you absolutely must split the check, tell the server beforehand!”

Finally, tips are at the fore front of some minds.

Halsar said: “Bigger tips.”
