You know you’re a crazy waiter when… (part 1)

Dinner

  • you’re dreaming about tables, reservations, walkouts, and tips (see here for an explanation)
  • you can explain the buffet or take an order in six languages, but can’t chat about the weather in those languages
  • you’re looking to the other side of the table when you place your plate (used to synchronized serving)
  • you’re checking all those restaurantweblogs before you’re going to sleep at 4.00 am
  • you’re roommate is piling the plates (“much faster”) but you’re really gone much faster with the normal technique
  • you’re reading the mentality of people on the way they deal with servicepersonel – not only crazy waiters do, even CEO’s do ;)
  • you’re making the tables in the Harrods, LaFayette or other shops perfect and put the spoons in the right way
  • you have always your wineopener with you
  • you know all the restaurants of the country with one, two or three michelinstars by heart
  • you’re asking quickly a bottle of water when the others at the table want to ask for tapwater
  • you’re paying the bill of the restaurant with your creditcard (because you hate when they pay seperatly), your friends are amazed that you count their money that quickly and you wait for ages before the others without money pay you back
  • you’re putting secretly 10 euros in the checkfolder before leaving – because the other people on the table tip badly

  1. Great post! Especially enjoyed your Delicious feed on restaurant blogs. Here’s couple of more for ya. You’re crazy waiter if:

    * Your funniest stories start with: “Last night I had a table…”
    * You favorite day to get hammered is Monday.
    * You wear your uniform (including apron) to work. If you do you’re really NUTS;)

    Keep posting!
