Word to the wise...

If a server is standing over you with 4 five-pound plates, hot enough to melt human flesh...please do two kind things:

1. Acknowledge them when they say "The Tenderloin, sir" Because they ARE talking to you. &

2. GET OUT OF THEIR WAY!! :)

WHen you continue your conversation, elbows firmly on the table, it's really hard to set your food down and serve the rest of your friends and family. AND MY FINGURE STILL HURTS from the 3 degree burn I recieved.

I always think that people treat servers very badly! Do you notice how not many people say please or thank you? It makes my blood boil. I always smile, and say please and thank you to all the wait staff. And I force Hubby to move his elbows off the table when I see our food coming!

I thought you'd escaped being a server when you went back to school. =( Sorry to hear about the finger and the silly patrons.

i remember that - the worst, girl!! i feel your pain, once again..... it really is bad --the customers act like u (the food bearer) are so rude to interrupt their conversation that you will just have to stand there with burning hot plates stacked on one hand (and your wrist is about to break off, might i add...) until they are done talking....

I've never been a server, but my husband did it for years. He said it's a way to really find out how annoying and stupid people can be. Anyway, I thought you weren't working anymore?!?!?!?!
