Don’t piss off your waitress! Here’s what NOT to do when eating
- interrupt her
- Ask them something while they are busy
- Say your order too quickly
- Refuse to take no for an answer
- Tell them your meal was bad even though you ate it all
- Order something that is not on the menu
She captioned the video, “What servers really wanna say but we’ll never say.”
The TikToker has recreated her customer’s favorite annoyances in a skit.
She revealed some of her biggest annoyances were customers throwing out their orders too quickly, interrupting her when she was busy and refusing to believe her when she said an item was unavailable.
The video began with the waiter walking past some tables carrying a tray full of cups.
Then a guest called out to her and said, “Hi, I’m ready to order.”
The waitress replied, “Yeah, just let me take your order while holding a tray full of friggin’ drinks.”
Next, the clip shows the waiter bringing three plates filled with food to a table before being followed by a guest to find out where the food is.
“Okay guys, well I’ve got your salmon, a burger, and your-” she said before being interrupted by a customer.
“Where’s the pasta? The pasta we ordered?’ asked the guest.
The content creator and waitress replied, “I’ve got three friggin’ plates in my hand.” That’s in the kitchen; a moment.’
In another shot, the waiter is standing next to a table ready to take a customer’s order.
However, the encounter quickly takes a turn when the guest refuses to take no for an answer.

“Can I have oysters?” the customer asked, to which the waitress replied, “So we don’t actually have oysters here.”
However, the patron didn’t seem to believe this could be true, adding, ‘Are you sure?’ You really don’t have any oysters?’
“Can I have oysters?” The customer asks, to which the server replies, “So we don’t actually have… oysters here.”
“I won’t say it again.” I work here. We don’t have oysters. If you ask me twice, we’re not going to eat oysters. “We don’t have oysters,” the waitress replied.
The content creator then reenacts another ordering scenario that frustrates her.
As she was taking her order, one customer said, ‘Can I make truffle fries – keep the truffles – with a house salad, no onions?’ I’ll have the bacon cheeseburger too, no tomatoes.’
The waiter then cut her off and added, “Okay, baby, baby, baby, slow down.” “I can’t type all that fast.”
Other waiters flocked to the comments to agree with the waitress and voice their own pet grievances
In a follow-up video, she said she hates it when customers claim they don’t like their food even though they’ve eaten the entire plate.
Other waiters flocked to the comments to agree with the waitress and voice their own pet grievances.
“As a former waitress, I agree. “I hated when people would order something that wasn’t on the menu and say they ate it the last time they were there,” one person wrote.
Another user added, “If they ask for straws once the cup is on the table, please give a second.”
“Or if it’s a large group of people and everyone ignores you,” said another.
Another person commented, “Or when you bring out food and everyone magically forgets what they ordered, like seriously.”
“Thank you for representing our repressed anger,” added another user.
