So You Want To Be A Waiter

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

Just to prove that waiters aren’t the only ones…

…to deal with “interesting” customers, clients and other members of the public.

Exhibit A: From the oft-hilarious”(The customer is) not always right” website:

“(Note: I worked in a resort over the summer as a concierge.)

Tourist: “Can we see any wildlife in the area, you know, by the side of the road?”

Me: “Sure, we routinely see elk, deer, mountain goats and bighorn sheep. I’ve seen a couple wolves too, and we get a lot of bears.”

Tourist: “Oh! Can we feed the bears?”

Me: “No, sir, the bears are wild bears. They are extremely dangerous and you should never approach any wild animal. Just stay in your car, with the windows up, and you’ll be fine.”

Tourist: “Oh… can we send our kids to play with the bears?”

Me: “That would be ‘feeding the bears,’ sir…””

:insert editorial comment from yours truly:

Feeding the bears indeed…he he
