How do you treat your waiters, waitresses and bartenders when you are out to eat? And more importantly, how do they remember you?
You May Get
A bar, because it's Friday night and I'm gettin' it in!
A Restaurant that my family can enjoy together
A little place right down the street.
The place with my favorite food! And I can't wait to order it. Just ordering even feels good.
Make a clever comment and a cool face
Wait until she gives you her attention and ask for a table.
Sit wherever you want because you are friends with the owner.
Get her attention and demand a table because she isn't doing her job, which is seating the guests.
Wait until she gives you her attention. It's annoying though, when you want a table but the host or hostess isn't seating you.
Interrupt because you've been here before. It's not a big deal, you just don't need to hear it. It's time to order stuff.
Ask about the specials. They're very interesting, those specials.
Socialize because you know everybody, and you probably know the server or bartender too.
Talk to the server or bartender about how their night is going. You also currently work in the industry so you know what it's like.
Listen to what they have to say, order a drink, and start thinking about food.
Order an alcoholic drink as quickly as possible.
Order everyone water.
Order some appetizers for the table.
Ask for a refil. Honestly they always put too much ice in their drinks.
Ask for more time because the server or bartender came back before you were ready.
Ask if you get free refils on your soft drink, because some places charge for that, which is ridiculous.
Your favorite drink is usually wrong for some reason. Drink it anyway.
No Need for appetizers.
You decide whether they are attractive or not.
You ignore it and carry on like nothing happened. And maybe post about it on facebook later.
At this point you have a buzz so you interact with them.
Ask to be moved. It's really weird and uncomfortable when someone stares at you like that. How are you expected to eat?
Talk about them in another language. You're in the states on business anyway so it doesn't matter, you aren't usually here.
Ask for another drink and some more napkins.
Ask about the wings and dip. It's usually a good idea to know the ingredients to the things that you eat.
Say thank you and enjoy the appetizers and the company of your friends.
Let the server or bartender know that you've been waiting for a drink for a while.
Ask if you can have extra dinner bread and the check. There's no need to eat a meal, the appetizers always fill you up.
You didn't even hear the server or bartender. Your baby was crying. It's like they know when you're about to eat.
Don't order any dinner because you just got off work and sat down for a drink. It's gonna be a fun night.
Ask to speak to a manager. If you came in first you should get fed first. You're a big enough guy to stand up for yourself, and you demand equal service.
Ask to speak to a manager. If you came in first you should get fed first. You're an independant woman and you deserve equal service.
Ask what the dressings are. Every good meal comes with a good salad.
Ask to order later. You're not in a big hurry and you just want to hang out for a little while and take things slow.
Order your food. You've been looking forward to this for some time.
You smile at them and say something cute. There is nothing wrong with a compliment!
You aren't really paying attention to them. Your children are usually getting anxious to eat by now. With so many mouths to feed it is difficult to line up their hunger levels with dinner time and with eachother.
Holler at them to get their attention. You need something that they forgot to bring you earlier and it annoys you when you don't have what you need.
Point at your glass because it's empty, and that's much easier than asking them for another drink.
You have everything you need so you just smile and carry on.
Ask them how they have been! They seem nice enough and interesting, it's a good idea to get to know them. Meeting new people is always fun.
Eat it anyway. It's not that overcooked and it still tastes good.
Send it back. It's unacceptable to pay for food that is not cooked right.
Eat it because you don't want to wait for another one. This always seems to happen to you, no matter where you go or what you order.
Ask for another drink or a free dessert. It's only fair anyway.
Ask for extra dipping sauces because that stuff is fantastic.
Stop eating and don't say anything about it to the server, but totally point it out to everyone of your guests and friends.
Ask for a new food item and to have it removed from the check.
Ask to speak to the manager. You've been to all sorts of places and this sort of thing deserves attention and should not ever happen.
Honestly, this happens all over the place. Ask for the food to be replaced and carry on.
Complain harshly about it to the server or bartender. This sort of thing is disgusting and the server or bartender should have seen it before they delivered it- AND it should never happen! And if you don't get this taken care of immediately you will be very angry and not afraid to show it. [email protected]# this S#$T
That's because a bunch of them like you. You're pretty sure you could ask any of them out on a date and they'd agree.
It doesn't matter. Your baby is still crying and getting all of your attention. Being a parent makes it difficult to go out to eat.
Ask for boxes for your food. It's almost that time.
You realize these people are nicer than the people in most areas you've been to recently. Normal people aren't always that nice.
Push your plates aside and stack them on top of eachother. Don't worry about how they stack though- as long as they're in a pile.
Say "How do you make an apple puff? Chase it around the kitchen."
Ask how much the desserts are. It's definitely a factor.
Order dessert because that cake looks bomb.
Time for more drinks honestly.
Ask your server or bartender for their phone number because they are attractive.
Ask for the check. No sense in waiting around.
Hang out for a while. Sitting and socializing with friends and family is always a blast.
Hang out with friends for a while. The table is yours and is the perfect chill spot, that's why you're enjoying it so much. Might as well enjoy it as long as you can, even if you are full. Can't beat time with good company.
Chat with the staff a little bit before you pay. It's always good catching up.
Your water is low. Ask for another one.
Pay the bill.
Look over the bill to make sure there are no additional charges. You can never be too careful.
Ask the server or bartender why the bill is so high. The food and the service should not cost so much. There was a hair!
You really only go out to eat when you get gift cards. Time to cash those bad boys in!
Less than 10 dollars
Between 10 and 15 dollars.
15 to 20 dollars.
20 to 25 dollars.
As much as you could because your son or daughter is actually waiting on you!
You leave a decent tip and a pamphlet from your local church. There is nothing wrong with spreading a little bit of love and hope with a stranger. There is always a way.
You leave a decent tip, and on the way out, tell the server or bartender how good of a job they do. Positive feedback can go a long way to put a smile on someone else's face as well as show your appreciation for how good they are.
More than 25 dollars. You know that the service industry is harder than it looks, and can be very stressful.
Here's an interesting quiz for you.
