i did see a few that i agreed with though:#10. Oh, you needed more water so badly, you had to snap or tap or whistle? I’ll be right back … in ten minutes.
#15. I get this call all the time: “Is the chef there? This is so-and-so. I’m a good friend of his.” If you’re his good friend, you’d have his cell.
#20. If you walk out with the slip you wrote the tip on and leave behind the blank one, the server gets nothing. It happens all the time, especially with people who’ve had a few bottles of wine. (though if you wrote on top of the copy you left i have sometimes been able to decipher the imprint of whatever tip they wrote in when you hold it up to the light, but it's very tricky)
#13. People think that just because your food took a long time, it's the server's fault. Nine times out of ten, it's the kitchen. Or it's the fact that you ordered a well-done burger. (from the second article, listed below)
and don't even get me started on the article it links to at the bottom- 20 more secrets your waiter won't tell you. i have never seen anyone serve people decaf because they were too lazy to make more regular freakin coffee. ugh. your servers are generally not out to get you! that doesn't mean there aren't jerks out there but come on, treat them respectfully and you'll get that in return.
