Absolutely. In fine dining? Well hell, who knows about fine dining. I’m sure fine dining establishments could charge 500 for a dancing monkey throwing green colored poop at people and the customers would love it just for the “OMBeONCE.”
But in the meat grinders of corporate restaurants where upper management could care less about anything but table turnover rate and check averages, they want you to get those people out.
“Push, push, push girls, get those folks in and out. You make more in volume than in one high tipping table.”
That’s what I’ve heard from management in shiver 13 years of restaurant work. And it is damn true too. With customers acting as completely obnoxious as they do constantly day in and day out, servers end up caring about you about as much as you do them. Which is usually close to “a whole fucktard little” to “bitch, on your knees like a good woman.”
Plus, with every idiot making every fucking little nothing a “lil’ less tip for ya honey,” I know most servers just want you out. “I’m sorry, did you have to wait for longer than 1 microseconds for your ramekin of ranch lower my tip by 50%?”
Oh, yes, you poor customer who has to be inconvienced. Oh boo, fucking, go suck on goatsexc.
I know, you don’t know, because you’ve never been there. Be nice to people like your Mom told you. Service sector people are people, just like you. And you don’t even see, or pay attention, to half of what servers actually do during their day. I know, you think they have like 2 tables. They have like 5, oops sorry. They have side-work, bussing, management and kitchens to deal with. I’m sure your 50 emails and 5 phone calls and 1 meeting a day is just so damn harsh.
Yes, I’m pissed. I’m tired of morons pissing all over service sector people because they can.
