One of my personal annoyances with customers are the idiots who try to tell me how to do my job. If you have waited tables for any period of time you have had a run in with this type of person. Ignorant and opinionated are not a good combination there sir. Speaking out of your ass is generally not good social graces ma'am.
The people who pull a gift card and credit card out of their wallet or purse and put it into the check binder and then feel compelled to inform me that I should "run the gift card first". Thank you. Thank you for being so helpful. I had no idea that is what you intended. I had planned on putting all but one cent on your credit card, and then using the gift card. Your brilliance is impressive, you should apply for some of our corporate positions here at Red Lobster. I'll stop by later at your Burger King and tell you how to mop the floors.
Now I'm not talking about those folks with special orders mind you. If you want an ounces of bitters in your Bourbon Manhattan I'll gladly listen to how you want it made.
