Another DeBunking

The time has come, after all of the 4 page comments, for you, Springs1, to think about some things, take some things into account.

You say that you don’t mind if a server upsells you before your order.

  1. wow i can’t believe i tried to read through all her comments. i started reading this blog a few days ago (which is awesome btw) and ribeye sounds like such a good server, the kind i would LOVE to chit chat with. i have had my good share of bad experiences with servers but i don’t let it affect me once i’ve left the restaurant. maybe i’m just not a princess, nay, queen wannabe that thinks servers are slaves. even when what i ordered was slightly off i’d accept it and if i really cared THAT much to have it changed i would kindly remind the server of what i had ordered. i do not, however, blame the server and think they are lazy asses because you know what humans are not perfect and we make mistakes. humans also have disabilities like maybe not reading orders properly or forgetting something, you never know…but it is NOT because they’re lazy. maybe they should do something else besides being a server but guess what it’s not that easy. even university graduates end up working as servers because they can’t get other jobs. how does that make them feel everytime they have to go serve someone who feels entitled to a royal treatment at a mega chain restaurant instead of doing what they want to do.
    of course if a server really is lazy and purposely being stupid they obviously don’t care about their job, in which case go ahead and talk to a manager. ahh this wasn’t supposed to be a long comment oops…

    “ribeye sounds like such a good server”

    HOW, when you DIDN’T TAKE CHARGE of his tip by NOT being the person that was bringing out the mayo for his customer, for his tip? The fact is, ribeye COULD have brought the mayo ****BEFORE**** the food arrived and NOT have put 100% TRUST into SOMEONE ELSE THAT IS NOT MAKING THE TIP from the ***CUSTOMER***!

    A “GOOD” SERVER MAKES SURE THE CUSTOMER HAS WHAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE NO MATTER WHO TAKES THE FOOD OUT TO THEM IF IT’S SOMETHING THAT DOESN’T NEED COOKING SUCH AS A SIDE OF MAYO. WHAT MAKES YOU THINK A GOOD SERVER IS SOMEONE THAT DOESN’T TAKE THE EXTRA EFFORT TO MAKE SURE THEIR CUSTOMERS HAVE WHAT THEY HAVE ORDERED?

    “the kind i would LOVE to chit chat with.”

    So when you “CHIT CHAT” with that server, just remember you are compromising OTHER CUSTOMER’S TIME and BEING SELFISH. Think about it logically. If you chit-chat about personal stuff and another table needs greeting or a refill or the check or whatever, you have just put SELFISH SELF FIRST INSTEAD of letting the server do THEIR *****WORK****** INSTEAD OF PLAYING! Servers are there to ***************SERVE****************, NOT TO CHIT-CHAT TO DELAY PEOPLE’S ORDERS! YOU ARE BEING RUDE TO ALL THE OTHER CUSTOMERS THAT WOULD LIKE REFILLS, THEIR CHECK, TO ORDER THEIR FOOD, ETC.JUST SO YOU CAN HAVE A PERSONAL CONVERSATION WITH THE SERVER! GO TO A BAR IF YOU WANT TO CHIT-CHAT! Restaurants ARE NOT FOR CHIT-CHATTING WITH THE SERVERS! If it’s NOT busy, like maybe a couple of tables and the server knows they don’t need anything, that’s one thing, which is fine and I don’t mind talking to my server then, but if it’s busy, the server has NO TIME to chit-chat, because they have SOOOO MANY REQUESTS at once.

  3. I just want all you servers to know I appreciate the work you do on my behalf. I couldn’t do it, wouldn’t want to try. I tip 25% of the total across the board, and would tip higher if I could. Servers are awesome.

    Thank God I don’t have to listen to this attention whore. She writes like a middle school brat.

  4. There is no way Springs1 is for real is there?? At first she pissed me off, but after reading more and more from her, I’m convinced whoever is writing as her is doing it as a (very extended) practical joke…

  5. If she IS real, I would like her to meet my old boss and his awful temper, spend one saturday dinner shift with him in the kitchen screaming at us to pick up trays and run them out immediately (or we’re fired) and THEN ask us to stand there verifying that everything is there. We’re all pretty small girls cowering in the shadow of a red-faced, spitting angry old man (like MANY independent restaurant owners actually)yelling at us to get out of the kitchen with the food, I’m not defying him for a minute. I’ll come back for your baked potato or ranch, thank you very much.

  6. I’ve been a server for over 38yrs and have seen and done it all spring1.I worked in Vegas for 30yrs. and now work in a major corporate hotel back east.I could give two shits about how good I am at this point because of assholes like you.We’re serving fucking food not saving lives.It’s fucking restaurant work for gods sake.I refuse to kiss anyones as for a buck. I do my job and do it real well but see no long term rewards in and can’t wait to retire because of yrs of stress from waiting on ungratefull sons of bitches like you. Don’t bother with a response because no one cares what you think. Isn’t it obvious by everyones opinion of you. You are someone I never care to meet in life.

  7. I didn’t read all of that b/c I think I already lost roughly 20% of my brain cells just from scanning this bogus peice of “literature”. Spring1 whatever the hell your name is… CHILL THE HELL OUT. This is a place for servers to gather and laugh over ignorant people like you. Go eat a donut and shut up. and oh yea. All you did write about was wanting free food. Shut up. This isn’t a food bank. Peace.
