Service Industry Relations
Having been a server for 6 years, I feel the people just keep getting worse and worse over time. I serve people with a huge smile on my face, and try and make their experience great. What do I get? Rude, inconsiderate, miserable people who don’t know the word please or thanks. People who think they are the only person who exists. I am only 23, and I have been talked to like an idiot, treated like shit, and sent home feeling like crap.
I am an awesome server and my section gets filled with regulars, so I know that I’m doing something right.
Just remember that you truly impact everyone you talk to in a day, and if you are having a bad day, chances are someone else is too. Be considerate of servers especially because your child could potentially be a server, and just hope he/she doesnt come home crying from someone who behaves like you do, to servers.
Also, yes tipping is an option. But if you are not only paying for the food, you are paying for the experience. So, if you have a good experience, TIP your server. Or go to mcdonalds.
