It really pisses me off when people give you shit when there's a wait for tables. I just want to turn around and say "it's a fucking Saturday night and you don't have a reservation. You are dumb. Fuck off."

The best is “30 minutes?! Really for two people?!”

YES! YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES WHO WANT TO EAT HERE, THERE ARE 10 OTHER COUPLES WAITING NOT TO MENTION 4 OTHER FAMILIES AND A PARTY OF 10 WHO DECIDED THEY ARE TOO OOD FOR RESERVATIONS!

"But we’re starving!"

Yeah, so are the 20 other people on the wait

I really don’t understand why people give me ‘tude when I tell them that there is a wait.  Like I don’t control how busy we are.  You can go somewhere else if the wait is such an inconvenience to you.

And don’t bother me before 20 minutes before your wait time is up asking how much longer it’s going to be.  You’re not even near your quoted time.  Calm down.

I just wanted to add to the whole shoplifting thing because i work in a large office supply store. What the owner of the blog says is true, my store cuts hours when saies are low and shoplifting attributes to that. We pretty much have to put tags and spider wraps on as much merchandise as we can so it doesn't get stolen. I'm not trying to get my hours cut because someone wants to take a damn $10 backpack.

Spider wraps are good to secure an item’s safety.

Actually go fuck yourself because literally every day we find someone who has stolen something worth $50 or more or find evidence of it. When there are a lot of thefts, we lose out on sales. When we don’t have sales, we don’t have hours. So that means I don’t have money. So basically, shoplifters should literally go fuck themselves I need money to live more than you need that fucking brand name mascara.

What’s the worst thing you did to a rude customer?

Didn’t put their discount/coupon through. They missed out on like $3.

Put them in a tiny booth next to a screaming child and say there are no other tables available.

I don't understand how people can shoplift. When I was five, I accidentally took a pair of socks from a store because I REALLY wanted my Mom to look at them (because they had to be the greatest pair of plain, black socks in the world) and she hadn't looked at them yet and we were halfway to the parking lot when my Mom sees I'm holding them and she took me back in the store and made me apologize and when we walked back out of the store, I heard police sirens, and thought they were arresting me.

When I was 4, I stole a hairband from this treasure basket my teacher had to give as rewards for getting answers right. I had nightmares and felt guilty everytime I looked at it, so I threw it away, but never told anyone.

One time as a kid I stole a really small pen from Vons but I felt so bad that I started crying on the way to the car and I returned it. The cashiers were laughing but I thought I was gonna get arrested.

I don’t get why they’re so adamant about punishing shoplifters at big chain stores. When you’re getting paid the lowest wage possible dealing with asshole customers every shift and shitty managers, why do you get so personally offended that people steal things? Employees are not…

They actually do get punished, fyi. They get their hours cut and sometimes are written up.

While personally I didn’t give a flying rat’s genital warts about whether somebody stole from my store or not, there are a couple simple reasons why the people working retail would care about shoplifting at a soulless conglomerate retail store that treats (and lets customers treat them like) crap. Follow this one weird old trick and find out (read on.)

1) Wrong is fucking stealing.
2) That soulless conglomerate pays their wages, theft hurts that.
3) Fucking stealing is wrong.
4) Any idea how many anti-theft and theft prevention meetings retail employees have to suffer through?
5) Stealing is fucking wrong.
6) Retail employees, in my experience, take pride in doing a good job despite it being awful in pay, benefits, and treatment.
7) Fucking wrong stealing is.
8) Think retailers don’t hold theft against their employees? I worked for one once about 15 years ago that denied all employees raises because “shrink was too high”
9) Stealing? It’s fucking wrong.

I also work at a small family business in Australia, we have about 10 staff on the floor, three of those only work in the bar, but everyone else serves, hosts, runs food and busses throughout their shift. Sometimes if we're overstaffed someone might be on 'clear and reset', but that's rare, this whole division of jobs is so weird to me haha! Luckily though shifts are around 6 hours max for dinner, and 5 for lunch - with min 1hr break in between, also wages here are quite high, around $20/hr.

Wow that’s so cool! So in order to run smoothly, I am assuming that you all rely a lot on teamwork and such. I don’t know how it is in smaller restaurants or in other states, but typically in California, large-ish restaurants always have bussers, hosts, servers, and bartenders. Sometimes the hosts bus tables, but from experience as a busser you also have to take into account: who is transporting dishes from the bar to the dishwasher? Who refills the ice stations? Who mops up spills? I think that is why a lot of restaurants have bussers on hand. Not necessarily for bussing tables, but also for maintenance, upkeep, & heavy lifting. Thanks so much for telling me about your workplace!
