Here's some in this post and some in the other since they have a character limit, I can only post one piece at a time:
1. Ask if you have been there before?(Especially if you have, it's irritating and a time waster).
Why does this one matter? Itís none of your business and it wastes VALUABLE TIME! I came there, because I was HUNGRY AND THIRSTY and to pay you a tip for you being CONSIDERATE NOT TO DELAY ME FROM PLACING MY ORDER! BE CONSIDERATE!!
2. Make comments about what you order whether good or bad, by basically putting their opinion into what you are ordering. It's not your business and it's not nice, so don't go there unless specifically asked to.
Itís nosy and itís nobodyís business. If I want your opinion, I will ask and have asked. I donít need to know itís your favorite? WHO GIVES A SHIT, you are a stranger and if I have had it a zillion times, WHY would I want your 2 cents wasting my time, huh? I could be getting my whatever that much faster if you shut up.
3. Take your glass instead of get you a new one for a refill.(That means I am left without anything to drink for that time period, especially if I have food in front of me.)
Common sense I donít want to choke. Also, I can at least suck on the ice, itís better than nothing at all until I get my new glass.
4. If you are sitting at the bar or table that the bartender or server refills your ice melted glass without dumping out the old watery ice in the glass first.(COMMON SENSE I don't want watery coke for example.)
I HATE watery drink. I donít know anyone that wants that unless they order it that way.
5. Refills your glass of tea at the table. It would be nice to not have a watery glass of tea and a nice, clean glass.(Common sense again.)
Common sense as I said, I donít want WATERY drink. Also, itís more disruptive of conversations when you have to reach across to refill, especially at a booth.
6. Gives you your check when they didn't ask if you wanted it.
Rushing me and itís also a CONTROL, ASSUMPTION THING. Itís not your call to make if I want my check or not, itís *MINE*! I am *PAYING*, LET ME HAVE THAT RIGHT, OK? What if I want something else? There have been times when we got a bunch more things after the server decided to give us the check. They just wasted their time ASSUMING rather than asking.
7. Wastes time writing their name and "thank you" on the check or even draws stuff. What a waste of time.
When *YOU* want to leave from a restaurant if you were in a hurry like your lunch break from work or maybe you are in a rush, or just tired or whatever, how do you feel? Do you want someone to make you wait ONE SECOND MORE than they have to?
8. Gets your dirty dishes first BEFORE going to get your check when you want your check. Common sense I want to leave, so get what I do want before worrying about clean up work.
Do you like waiting? If you donít, WHY should I?
9. Gets any dirty dishes or any objects and puts it ahead of the customer's request.
Common sense that if I am waiting for something, WTF would I want to wait ONE SECOND LONGER than I have to, huh? Do you like waiting?
10. Auctioning off drinks and/or food when YOUR server is the one that took the order.
It just shows how LAZY the server is that they canít go back to their written order. Once, I was in a party of 4, which this waitress auctioned off our drinks, seriously, FOUR PEOPLE, how LAZY IS THAT, HUH? You donít agree? Itís not the customerís job to tell the server over and over again who had what. A mistake is one thing, I can accept that, but being TOO LAZY to REREAD your written order is another ENTIRELY DIFFERENT THING that they donít want to *EARN* their tip.
Skipped #11 since I went over that already.

I don't know any of you and I don't want to. You sound like mean, spiteful, spoiled, used to getting your way people who don't give a damn about anyone but themselves. SHAME on ALL of you. When I go to a restaurant I tip for good service, I don't tip for bad service, end of subject!

The other stuff *IS* PART OF THE SERVICE YOU IDIOT!! It isn't BS!!

You are crazy that you don't care about your money enough to care about these things as to where it's going when tipping.

I have EVERY RIGHT, because *I* am PAYING FOR THAT CONTROL, DUHHH!! The server isn't, IDIOT!!
Haha no you are paying for the food and it to be served to you. How is not your determination, you can cry and whine about it all you want and get as many servers fired as you want, it will never change the fact that the control you so desparately seek continues to evade you.

Ihave read a good portion of these comments and fully believe that most of you wouldn't be happy if the server was as near perfect as humanly possible! People today are spoiled rotten and no one has ever been in a position where someone said no to them.My wife and I eat out often and I really try to be as kind and considerate to our waitperson as possible but the one thing that irks me the most is that so many of them will not bring me my change unless I ask for it so that is what I always do now. If my bill totals $23.74 and I give you $40.00 don't just assume that the change is your tip!! I will determine what you tip will turn out to be.
Now THAT is truly disgusting and borderline theft. Completely agree with this one!!! Spring is a flat out control freak lunatic who thinks she can buy servers like they are slaves. Sad and pathetic.

Jealous that you're only 5 foot tall, little Oompa Loompa? Sure!

*laughter*

I think you deserve every ounce of mediocre service you receive. If you ever set foot in my bar I'd have my Rottweiler bite your fat ass.

No, the dirty dish in not paying me, but my boss decides whether or not I still work there. It is called "pre-bussing". Many restaurants require that you bus the table BEFORE dropping the check. My managaer woul;d chew my head off if I brought a check to a table full of empty dishes. If we walk past a table that needs to be bussed, whether in our section or not,whether we have an actual busser or not for the evening, if we do not grab things off of it as we pass, we are written up. You are not the only person in the entire restaurant, you know.

NO, NOT OK. I am paying *YOU* not that dirty dish. That dirty dish isn't tipping you, CUSTOMERS ARE BY HOW MUCH**********TIME********** YOU ARE SPENDING GETTING THEIR STUFF.
If you went into McDonald's and the person decided to stock bags(this actually happened) instead of taking your order how do ****YOU***** feel that they are ***IGNORING YOUR TIME AND PUTTING IT ****LAST**** WHEN A REAL LIVE HUMAN BEING WITH FEELINGS SHOULD BE FIRST, HUH?
What you are doing is called be LAZY, VERY INCONSIDERATE, and UNCARING about your customers.
You aren't always going in the kitchen to need hands full in hands full out. For example, getting my check, you don't need to go to the kitchen at most of the restaurants. My refill, they have soda stations, no need to go to the kitchen. Extra napkins, no need to go to the kitchen.
<quoted text>
It's not OK, because you didn't get your customer's *PERMISSION* FIRST since they are *PAYING FOR THE ****SERVICE***(which means you could be wasting their time if they don't want that refill).
The item is free, but the ****SERVICE****** ISN'T, that means since you aren't paying the customer, the customer is paying you, you don't get to decide that,*****WE DO****** since *WE* hold the money you want from us. When *YOU* pay us a tip, we will gladly do it your way, but it's not that way, so we should have it *OUR* way.
<quoted text>
NO, I am there to get what ***I***** want. I want to be asked, I ****WANT TO BE ASKED SO MY TIME IS WASTED GETTING ME AN UNWANTED ITEM*****. Do you realize people can switch drinks that people do this? I have and my husband have switched before. I have switched from dr. pepper to coke to iced tea even. My husband switched from a cup of coffee to a diet coke. My husband switched from 2 diet cokes, to a water.
I am there to be served the way ****I***** want. YOU NEED TO ASK AT THE GREETING "Would you all like refills without being asked throughout your service?" It's not *YOUR* call to make. I have sent servers back before with them trying to ORDER for me.
WHERE do you get from that you have rights to ORDER for the customer, huh?
NOWHERE does it state the customer has to stick with the same drink they ordered the first time around. There's no such rule.
WHY do you want to be a CONTROL FREAK, HUH?
If you want our money, you do as ********WE********** WANT ONLY!!

Then you need to *LET THE CUSTOMER KNOW THIS* and that way a manager can get involved so if they want it their way,*THEY* can pay the tip, GOT IT?

I already know this already, but the thing is, the *CUSTOMER is the person paying here, NOT anyone else. Also, a lot of servers already print out the check and leave it in their apron pocket, so that way they can just hand the check while they pick up the dishes while we are reading the check.

What does not being the only person in the restaurant have to do with **********RESPECTING A REAL LIVE HUMAN BEING OVER OBJECTS********** HUH?

What if the customer requested this, I bet he would let you, why don't you ask the customer so that way you can do it that way, huh? I am willing to bet if the request came from the customer that they were in a hurry that manager would let and you know it!!

Also, the managers are dumb in that the faster we are OUT OF THERE the MORE CUSTOMERS, THE MORE MONEY the restaurant makes so it's truly hurting the server's income and the restaurant's income by making customers wait longer to leave. That's retarded.

As I said before I would ask the customer so that way you can get a request and I would refuse to work for a manager that doesn't have consideration for customer's time. What an uncaring piece of shit manager that is. WHO THE HELL wants to sit longer to leave when they are ready, huh?
