The ones that act like your job is beneath them and they don’t have to treat you kindly or with any sort of respect.
“Hi there, how are you–“
“Water with lemon”
customers that put dirty dishes or empty drinks on neighboring tables. people that sit at the one dirty table when there are multiple clean ones available. people who clap when they hear a glass break.
When someone makes a million different modifications then complains its wrong, but still comes back every week for the same thing and with the same complaints. If you hate it that much then why do you keep coming back!?!
oh my god customers who take stuff from the islands THEMSELVES!!!! sir i will get you lemons, coffee, a box, whatever the hell you could possibly need just LET ME DO IT
The “do you have chicken nuggets” people. You came into a sushi-only restaurant, of course we don’t have chicken nuggets!
Old men that flirt, anybody who touches me, old men that think they’re funny but they are SO NOT
The ones that yell their order to you from across the restaurant literally as soon as they walk in the door
Forgot about “We know the owner.” Anyone with access to Google can figure out the name of the restaurant’s owner. If you’re really such a dear friend of the owner, the owner would have alerted us that a friend would be dining in the restaurant. You ain’t special.
I once had a guest call out “Yoo-hoo, waitress!”
The level of disrespect, especially among upper-class entitled older folks, can be insane. I mean, I get that we’re here to serve you, but we are people too. It would be nice to be treated as such.
Where to starttt…people who don’t even look at the menu, and ask a million and one questions about the food, each one followed by “how much is that?”
The most annoying customers are the ones who try to order things that are not on the menu, and when I say we don’t have what they’re looking for, they try to modify every little detail of what we do have. And then when I have to charge them for additional modifications and add-ons, they complain about the price. If you want something so specific, make it yourself at home.
People put your dammed phone down when i walk ip to your table or I swear to God I’m going to make busimess cards with my cell number that say ‘text when you’re ready to order’ and drop it on the table and walk away
