Where do these people come from? My son Chad works at an upscale restaurant here in Tulsa where the average per person tab is $40-$50. Needless to say they had a very busy weekend this past weekend due to Fathers’ Day and a special they were running allowing for unlimited “refills” of any of the courses.
One family had already been seated and Chad had prepared the table next to them for the next reservation of 9 with plates, napkins, water and silverware. He later returned to the 1st group only to find the father bouncing his bare footed baby all over the freshly prepared table for 9 like a dancing marionette. Of course Chad had to wash and reset the table for 9.
Once the table for 9 arrived, the unthinkable occurred (as if the dancing baby wasn’t enough already). That family also had a baby and they changed his dirty (and I mean dirty) diaper right there on top of the table in the middle of the restaurant.
Then a group of rather large folk (Chad described them as some of the largest he had seen who could still move) took full advantage of the re-orders with everyone at the table re-ordering the meat entre 6 times and the desert course 4 times over.
All of these groups only confirmed their lack of societal norms by barely there or no gratitude (tips) to Chad for his service (Chad has won awards for his excellent service record there).
Ultimately I’m sure there is no answer or point to this blog, just an unashamed rant.
