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.
