A rant about how the joy of eating, sometimes isn't so joyful.

Things like this make me wish more people worked in restaurants. You're not the only people there. Yes, you want the waitstaff by your side the very moment you need them--and you know, so does everyone else in that server's section. Every customer wants the waitstaff to be at their beck and call, to come exactly when needed, seemingly not realizing or caring that there are other customers.

And then you have things like breaks being "whenever". Too many restaurants don't have official break times. You just catch maybe five minutes here and there if you're lucky. So if you "want a few minutes" (which is hardly ever just a few minutes), don't be surprised if your waitstaff heads out for a smoke.

And up-selling is part of the job. It's what they have to do to keep the job they hate almost as much as you do. No waitstaff really is happy to be the brunt of abuse, of childish and moronic behavior (like wrecking a table because the customer didn't feel their ass was kissed with enough tongue)--but, really, sometimes that's the only job they can get. More often than people seem to think about, it's the choice of a job where you get abused by self-righteous fat-ass customers wanting service exactly when and how they want it and damn everyone else--or no job at all.

I've had bad service. But more often than not, what people think is bad service is actually just the customer needing to relax and accept that the world doesn't revolve around them.

And get a job as waitstaff for a week while they're at it.

I know what you mean.

I've had to deal with unpleasant things in restaurants. Mostly young children who don't shut up. When I'm trying to enjoy a steak, I don't want to have to endure the agony of little jawas and their constant, inane prattle.

I went to Circus Circus back in '98. Same thing. First chance I got, I went to their buffet, wolfed down about five plates, and wrecked my table and chair.
