Servers Bitch & Gripe Page



Servers Bitching and Gripe Page


Hello!
We decided to start this page after endless nights of sitting at home after work discussing the events of our shift that day waiting tables.


**MOST COMMON SERVER COMPLAINTS**




**GOOD THINGS ABOUT WAITING TABLES**



PURPOSE OF THIS PAGE



We are hoping that this page will first of all, let all you other servers know that you are not the only ones that feel this way sometimes. Second, to let all the non-servers know what it is like to be a server and that it isn't that easy to deal with people all day and still act pleasant knowing that your income depends on what people decide to tip you. We also have a message board so that you can post your own complaints, comments, facts (labor laws that pertain to servers ie. overtime, min. wage etc.), and funny stories (mabye revenge on a customer, things that go on in the kitchen, those nightmares that we all have about being in the "weeds"). Maybe if enough people become involved, things will change for the better for us.


**?? DID YOU KNOW ??**


This is a list of things you probably need to know.


**Mr. & Miss Server Of The Month Contest**


We will be having a monthly contest for people to send in their photographs and every month they will be judged by James Bartholet and myself. There is really no theme except being a server and looking *HOT*. Those pictures selected as winners will be posted for the month and entered for "Mr & Miss Server Of The Year". Click the link to James's page (L.A. Nite Life With James Bartholet) and learn about him. All pictures can be sent to voodoochild@angelfire.com if you have any questions about the contest, feel free to email me there. Oh one more thing The pics dont have to be "G" rated But, No "X" pictures either. The first pictures will be posted May 1st


TO THOSE OF YOU WHO CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY WE FEEL THE WAY WE DO



Some people are saying things like: "Get an education", "Get a degree", "Get another job and quit your bitching".
A lot of people who work in the restaurant business as servers or bartenders have a degree or advanced degree. Tons are trying to pay their way through school. So for those of us who were not lucky enough to have our tuitions paid for by others, waiting tables is a good way to make the money that we need. Most people don't make a career out of it. It is also a second income for some people. This is the type of job that is easy to get without an education and the scheduling can fit around your school and/or other job schedules.
There are numerous jobs where the workers have to deal with those difficult people (postal workers, D.M.V employees, police officers, hospital workers, teachers, etc.). Servers and bartenders and a few others are the ones who have to depend on people's generosity for their income, so we don't get paid if we don't deal with their shit and smile about it. Most other jobs get a paycheck regardless. Also, servers are so expendable that management won't hesitate to fire someone because of a customer complaint or calling in sick without a doctors note (even though most restaurants don't provide any kind of health insurance).


**ALL FLAMERS CLICK THIS**


We respect and value everyones oppinion but, someone out to make ignorant comments and name calling is just stupid. We never asked for everyone to agree with us but, when certian people get a kick out of flaming just for fun, you piss alot of people off. Even worse than someone who posts flames in the guest book or on the message board, are the cowards who email me so noone else can see their stupidity. From now on, any emails which I have described above will be posted on a page along with email addresses and names


**CLICK HERE TO VISIT OUR MESSAGE BOARD**


Either message board is fine. I urge you to PLEASE post messages and responses there. It only takes a minute, even if you just say hello.
