I don’t get how people are just…so nasty to their servers.
I went out to eat today at a pizza place and my waitress brought me a refill without me asking and I was like, “Oh thanks so much!”
And she just got the most startled look on her face, like she was flustered that I had said thank you of all things.
When she came back a few minutes later with the check, I complimented her socks (they had a super cute pretzel pattern on them and I’m a sucker for fun socks) and her face absolutely LIT up. We had like a three minute conversation about how they’re the only part of her outfit she can really customize, having a uniform and all that, and she left with a grin on her face.
But the fact that she seemed surprised that someone was being nice to her was just so upsetting to me.
Your servers are human. Treat them like it.
