All it does is show me you have a superiority complex and deep rooted classist tendencies. I’ve been a waitress, a barista and a sales associate, so your talking down to others just tells me at one point you would’ve talked down to me. This guy in the queue tried to buy me a coffee today, after ripping into the guy behind the counter about his skills and his job. Don’t care what people do for a living, if you don’t treat ‘em like (very important) people when you deal with them, we can’t be friends.
"A person who is nice to you but cruel to the waiter isn’t a nice person."
I don’t understand how people don’t get this
It is terrifying. It means if you don’t adhere to their demands or if you make on little mistake, they can turn on you. I don’t deal with people who are nasty to others.
You need to have SO MUCH respect for service workers. Do you have any idea how soul-crushing service jobs can be? I always go out of my way to tip well (even when I can’t afford it), Be polite and courteous, and Always leave them with a smile and a “have a great day!”
I have never gotten bad service.
Everyone should have to work service jobs awhile. 99% of the time when a customer was angry about something, it wasn’t my fault. A waitress can’t help it if the kitchen is backed up. It’s not the cashier’s fault if a line is long or an item won’t scan. It’s not a barista’s fault if the manager didn’t order enough muffins. And none of them set the rules or the prices. Even when I have gotten frustrated, I make it absolutely clear to the service worker that I am upset with the company or the situation, and that the worker gave me excellent service. Because it’s almost never their fault.
