Working in a restaurant can be a slog — you’re on your feet all day, you smell like food when you get home and you have to deal with all parts of society, good and bad.
One server is sharing a surprisingly positive experience at work. However, this story has nothing to do with polite and kind customers — just the opposite in fact.
But her boss is the one who really shines through in this saga, posted in the sub-Reddit called r/TalesFromYourServer.
Wow, this story is truly amazing. That boss sounds like an incredible person to work for, and just all-around great human being!
Of course, people on Reddit had a lot of feelings on this topic, especially the part about tourists just generally being jerks:
But other people had pretty logical explanations for why tourists tend to behave so badly:
Others just shared their biggest restaurant pet peeves as servers:
One commenter was just jazzed at this story’s happy ending, as not all stories end so positively on the sub-Reddit:
One guy just wanted to give the boss a big, squeezing hug to say thank you:
If you’ve ever worked in hospitality in any form or fashion, then you know that working as a team is critical for workplace success and happiness. And that includes the boss! So shout out to all the great restaurant bosses out there who are making the lives of their employees way, way better, despite horrible diner behavior.
What’s your approach or philosophy to tipping at restaurants and bars? Do you always tip the same amount? Have you ever ditched out on the tip because of bad service?
We’d love to hear from you!
