So You Want To Be A Waiter

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

New link added – Waiter Confidential


From Chow Bella, the food blogger’s area of the Phoenix New Times,  this anonymous 25 year veteran of waiting tables has been dishing on the Phoenix dining scene since December. Posting with equal measures of aplomb, snark and suaveness, it’s one of the classiest rant sites. And he does it without pulling any punches. He’s the Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer’s replicant villian in Bladerunner) of the waiting world, except that he’s not evil. He does love diners, even as he suffers their occasional abuse and has to slay them (in print). As he might put it:

“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe.  Attack ships on fire off SouthBridge. I’ve watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Scottsdale Galleria.  All those … moments will be lost in time, like tears…in rain”.

Fortunately, it isn’t “time to die”.
