Having to deal with the kind of people that don't know how to tip and are incredibly rude all day long is the life for some, not for others. None of our customers were aware that restaurants only pay waiters around 2 dollars an hour, most of them think we make 10, so when it comes time to leave a tip at the end of the meal, they aren't thinking, "oh this is how waiter's survive, and pay bills, and eat", no, they're thinking more like, "oh no, dinner was a little more expensive than I thought, I'll just take it out of the tip, waiters get paid enough anyway." It's very frustrating to not be able to pay your bills after being run like a dog month after month. And the company only expects you to keep a good image for them, but when it comes time to take care of the waiters, where is everybody at? The only time you make really any money at all is when your so busy nobody can think straight, and that's when all the mistakes are made, it takes a good team to be able to operate efficiently in this business.
