So You Want To Be A Waiter

The best book on waiting tables that you have never read – yet

I want…

Why is it that guests don’t have any idea how rude this sounds? I suspect that part of it is the gradual yet accelerating breakdown of modern civilization as we know it and the complete disregard for common courtesy that is so prevalent in modern day America.

Let me ask this – wouldn’t I be perceived as rude if I walked up to the table and asked, “What do you want”? Wouldn’t that sound brusque and…well…rude? Then why is it that so many people don’t actually use the much nicer preamble, “I’d like…”?

C’mon peeps, if you’re going out to eat, please don’t tell us that you want something. Just the fact that you’re ordering something means that you want it. At least I assume that you actually want whatever it is that you’re ordering.

OK, climbing off my soapbox now…
