11 Things Your Server HATES Hearing

The number one rule while dining out is to always respect your server. People working in the food industry tend to deal with unbearable attitudes on a daily basis all while trying to smile. You can try to make their work shift a tad bit easier by not bombarding them with strange requests, or just general rudeness.

Whether you’re nodding like, “Yeah, I was a server” or you’re a frequent diner who may have unknowingly violated these rules, here are 11 things your server HATES hearing!

1. “We need more room.”

Making reservations in advance is the key to getting space at a restaurant. When you arrive at the restaurant and decide at the last minute you need more room for your party, it makes things a bit hectic on the waitstaff.

The waitstaff will have to accommodate the extra people in your party in an already congested and busy eating establishment.

2. “Give me.”

It’s rude to say “give me” to anyone, and your server is no different. It’s like you’re demanding them to do something for you. Show a little respect to the waitstaff while ordering by politely saying, “can I please have?” or, “I’d like.” Remember that servers will be handling your food the entire time you are dining, so be courteous.

3. “Can I get something off the menu?”

Requesting something that isn’t listed on the menu not only makes things harder on the server, but the chefs as well.

Chefs are busy trying to get orders in and out of the kitchen in a timely manner. They don’t have time to cook a random item, not in the menu, just because you requested it.

4. “What do you think I should order?”

Indecisive customers can slow down the process of making sure other tables are taken care of. Asking the server what you should order, or what they’d like best, can be tricky.

If you order a meal and end up not liking it, you might try to blame the server and would want to be compensated for the meal, yeah? Just don’t complicate things!

5. “Thanks, honey.”

Please refrain from referring to the server (especially women) as sweetie, sugar, honey, or babe. Chances are, your server is tired from working all day. The last thing they want to be called by a random stranger is “honey.”

6. “Can we move to another table?”

At restaurants, each individual server is assigned to different tables and sections. Asking to move to another table means you’ll most likely get a new server, and the one you initially had will be missing out on tips for their service. So basically, if you have a table in mind, ask for it when you walk in.

7. “My order is completely wrong.”

Your server’s main job is to take your orders, send the orders to the kitchen, and deliver your meals in a timely manner. The servers have no control over what happens in the kitchen, so if your order comes back wrong, take it easy on them.

If the order comes back wrong, politely tell your server. They will correct the mistake, and may even compensate the meal for you.

8. “Can we split the check X (amount) of ways?”

Splitting the check is easy when there aren’t a lot of people in your party. The problem arises when it’s a huge gathering of 20-plus people that each want to split their checks.

The server will have to remember what everyone ordered, how much it was, and try to calculate each ticket for each individual. If you have to do separate checks in a large party, tell your server before you order!

9.  “Can I call you sometime?”

Servers are nice people in general. After all, it is in the job description to be generous. Don’t take their kindness as a way of flirting and ask them for their number.

It’s awkward and unprofessional.

10. “We’re just going to hang out for a while.”

If you’re still lingering at the table after you’ve finished your meal, especially during peak hours, you’re costing the restaurant money. The server is also losing out on tips from new guests because you’re still sitting at the table and not eating.

11. “I have allergies.”

Telling a server that you have a food allergy when you actually don’t is problematic. The server and the kitchen crew will have to make sure certain foods do not cross contaminate because you claim to be allergic to something.

If a certain food comes with your meal that you don’t like, either don’t eat it, or try to substitute it. Just don’t say you have a food allergy.

Gee ya think only 43 pissed of with china ../////I would think the planet would be  fucking pissed at their  shennanigans ……….  43 countries criticize China at UN for repression of Uyghurs EDITH M. LEDERER Thu, October 21, 2021, 5:51 PM UNITED NATIONS (AP) — More than 40 mainly Western countries criticized China at a U.N. meeting on Thursday for the reported torture and repression of Uyghurs and other religious and ethnic minorities in Xinjiang, keeping a spotlight on the region where foreign governments and researchers say an estimated 1 million people or more have been confined in camps. Cuba followed immediately with a statement on behalf of 62 countries saying what happens in Xinjiang is China’s internal affair, and dismissing all allegations as based on “political motivation” and “disinformation.” China’s U.N. Ambassador Zhang Jun spoke soon after, denouncing “the groundless accusations” and unfounded “lies” and accusing the United States and a few other unnamed signatories of the
