"It's Amazing That More Waiters Don't Kill People"
Anita Sharpe on Business
That's a quote from a classic piece in today's New York Times titled, 'The Waiter You Stiffed Has Not Forgotten.'
Getting so-so service in restaurants is not one of my pet peeves. Dining with restaurant bullies is -- I have a short list of people who are over-demanding, over-complaining, under-tipping tyrants with whom I refuse to share a restaurant meal. So, even though I have never personally worked as a waitress, I laughed throughout this story about wait-people using blogs to vent about horrible customers.
As one wait-blogger noted: ' I can never understand why anyone would be even the slightest bit rude to someone who is about to touch your food.'
The waiters' menu of paybacks? You don't want to know.
