Does anyone still use this?  
Restaurant Rant:

I've been working in the food service industry for quite awhile now, enough to have been some places and seen some stuff, to know what I am talking about. Highs, lows, good, bad, and everything in between. Sometimes I wonder, what it is about restaurants, that make otherwise good, sane, nice people (I hope) turn into sociopathic monsters as soon as they cross the threshold into a foodservice establishment. I have seen plenty and been on the receiving end enough times to know.

I understand that there are expectations of service and such but sometimes people just demand things from restaurant servers that are outlandish, things that they themselves would never put up with at their own jobs, are expected as a matter of fact. Its even worse where I am, because of the Disney reputation and expectations. Meh. I don't even have the energy to go into it tonight.

But you're paid to serve them. ON YOUR KNEEEEEES! Just like how the people at Burger King are paid minimum wage to clean up that tray you leave on the table and the floor under it from where your kid apparently exploded! :3

Some of us are still here. I've noticed recently that people are starting to come back to LJ.

I don't know how servers cope sometimes. I swear there are some people who act miserable just because it gives them an excuse to save money on the gratuities.

There's that old adage, something about you never really know someone until you see how they treat the waiter/waitress ;)
