Similar to the maxim ‘never do business with friends’ is ‘never borrow something from friends that they really really hold close to their heart. Extension lead? Yes. Car? Probably not.’ And it was a fatal mistake that this friend made and we’re worried (not overly) that they might not be friends anymore. ‘Friend is upset […] The post ‘Friend is upset I won’t let him use my new car to get laid’ appeared first on The Poke.

‘The things you deal with as a waiter’

‘The things you deal with as a waiter’

the poke - 2 weeks ago

‘The things you deal with as a waiter,’ says nickbossbat over on Reddit.

And it struck a chord with waiters (and parents) alike.

verrine98: ‘Lmao I am a server at a sushi bar and I had one parent tell me “My son doesn’t eat fish, seafood, chicken, veggies and beef.” I just answered: “So just rice then?” What kind of parent does that to their kid lol.’

Liithonen: ‘I never took my kid out dining during the “terrible threes” but this would’ve been me if I’d done it.’

TehPinkMenace: ‘I once had someone order a side salad to go where I worked and a default side salad comes with lettuce onion tomato croutons and parmesan. The ticket read: Side salad remove croutons lettuce tomato onion. I literally put two small packets of parm in a small to go box and the person never called back or complained about it. They paid $4.99 for 2 small packs of parm. When they could have just asked for it for free. I dont fucking understand people.’

allgreentome: ‘I work in a restaurant at the airport. About once a year I think You still have time, you could meet a woman and have a kid. Then Christmas comes and families take over for a couple weeks, and Im cured.’

mommybananas: ‘Did the dad say the out loud in front of his party of 4? Or did the waiter add that?’

MalachiteCobra: ‘Definitely the waiter lol.’
