For those of you lazy, talentless fucks who can actually hold a job, you've probably seen a few interesting things, even in the most mundane line of work. ITT: Share about your place of work, your position, interesting stories, ETC. I'm especially interested in any entertaining stories or complaints about customers, bosses, and so forth. I myself work at a restaurant when I'm not in school, I'm a bit of an odd jobber, I've worked shifts busing, running food, washing dishes, and once I turn twenty one I plan to work the bar and be a server, although they'll probably let me serve earlier. Anyhow, working at a restaurant is hard stuff. No breaks, no standing around like an asshole or blowing off responsibilities, you're on the customer's time. People want to come in, get their food, and get the fuck out. If you slack, everybody notices, and you get your ass fired. Enough bitching though, there's two things I want to share with you guys. First, what I find interesting about working there, and second, what pisses me off about customers. You can use this info however you will, but I should warn you, if you make restaurant workers mad enough, we WILL do nasty things to your food. Things that are interesting: Overhearing people's conversations. People tend to forget that the staff exist except when directly interacting with them for some reason. Just because we've got uniforms, doesn't mean we no longer have functioning ears, lol. Not that I'm complaining, I hear a lot of funny shit. For instance, "Yeah, she shat all over me, I wasn't into it at the time, but now I don't know." "Should you spit or swallow?" "(unclear) depends on how much money" "Jimmy Buffet doesn't smoke weed!" and so on. another thing that's fun about working at a restaurant is dealing with drunks. Some people count this as just another pain in the ass, but personally I enjoy interacting with stupid assholes who can't hold their wine. I even got to throw one out once. and of course, free fuckin' food! Things that piss me off: I'll refrain from making this list too long, but shit, it could get pretty long. I have to throw away a LOT of food. It gets a little depressing. Especially when it's shit that is so expensive, I could never eat it on a regular basis. children. FUCK CHILDREN. They smear the tables with their greasy fingers, get food fucking everywhere, and I have to clean up their stupid goddamn fucking coloring mats and crayons and all that other bullshit. Some kids at restaurants I just want to bean with an aluminum bat, I really do. The dish pit. Everything about it is absolutely putrid. They don't pay me enough to stand back there for five hours with the rotting food and the biblical swarms of fruit flies. Picky people. Yes, your chicken has a little pink in it. Every fucking chicken has a little bit of pink in it. Oh, sending it back anyways? I guess I'll just throw a whole goddamn chicken away. Whatever, yeah. There's so much more little things, but I won't go into it. Now u go.
