Don’t piss off your waitress! Here’s what NOT to do at lunch
- Beat them
- Ask them something while they are busy
- Place your order too soon
- Refuse to take no for an answer
- Tell them that your meal was bad even though you ate it all
- Order something not on the menu
She captioned the video: “What servers really want to say but we never will.”
The TikToker recreated her patron’s pets in the scene.
She said some of her most annoying customers have been customers who ship their orders too quickly, interrupt her when she’s busy, and refuse to believe her when she says an item is out of stock.
The video began with a server walking past tables with a tray filled with cups.
Then the patron called her over and said, “Hello, I’m ready to place an order.”
The waitress replied, “Yeah, let me just take your order while I’m holding a tray full of f***ing drinks.”
The clip then cuts to a server delivering three plates of food to a table before the diner chases them to where the food was.
“Okay guys, I have your salmon, burger and your…” she said before the customer interrupted her.
“Where’s the pasta? The pasta we ordered?” asked the diner.
The content creator and the waitress replied: “I have three f***ing plates in my hand. That means in the kitchen; give me a second.’

However, the meeting quickly turns sour when the diner refuses to take no for an answer.

She said some of her biggest pet peeves were customers throwing out their orders too quickly, interrupting her when she was busy, and refusing to take no for an answer.
“Can I have some oysters?” the customer asked, to which the waitress said, “So we don’t really have oysters here.”
However, the patron didn’t seem to believe it could be true, adding: “Are you sure? You really don’t have any oysters?”
“Can I have an oyster?” the customer asks, to which the server replies, “So we don’t actually have… oysters here.”
“I won’t do it again. I work here. We have no oysters. If you ask me twice, it won’t give us oysters. We don’t have oysters, – answered the waitress.
The content creator is then seen replaying another order scenario that frustrated her.
As she was taking orders, one customer said, “Can I have truffle fries — leave out the truffles — with a house salad without the onions?” I’ll have a bacon cheeseburger too, no tomatoes.’
The server then cut her off and added, “Okay, baby, baby, baby, slow down. Like, I can’t type it all that fast.’
Other servers flocked to the comments to agree with the waitress and share their own grievances
In a follow-up video, she said she hates it when customers claim they don’t like their food despite eating the whole plate.
Other servers flocked to the comments to agree with the waitress and share their own grievances.
“As a former waitress, I agree. I hated it when people ordered things that weren’t on the menu and said they had it last time,” one person wrote.
Another user added: “If they ask for straws as soon as the cup hits the table, for example, give it a second.”
“Or if it’s a big group of people and they all ignore you,” said someone else.
Another person commented: “Or when you bring food and everyone magically forgets what they ordered, like for real.”
“Thank you for representing our pent-up anger,” another user added.
