A guide to not pissing off your server

(From the greatest movie about hospitality EVER..'waiting)
When you get bad customer service somewhere, and often from a disgruntled waitress who clearly hates her job you wonder, “Well why work there?". But when you’re on the other side of the counter a more appropriate question to ask is, “Well why are you such an asshole?". After working in a cafĂ© for two years, this has become my reality. And I feel so strongly about this that I’ve taken to expressing my frustration in a blog post that outlines all the annoying things customers do to piss off their server. Before I unleash, I think it’s very important to note that the majority of my customers are super super nice, and we’re lucky to only get one or two assholes per week.
