Dead shirts and deadbeat customers


No, I'm not talking about the Grateful Dead. I actually like them. A lot.

I have made the observation in my numerous years of food service that if one of the customers at the table has a shirt with the picture of a dead person on it, that the table will suck. There are very few exceptions to this. Those that include RIP, or look like they were done in someone's basement are especially bad omens for the server.

Shirts that would qualify would include:
Jim Jones...
Jim Morrison...
A dead homey...
Elvis...
A dead rapper...(especially Tupac)
Hitler...
Liberace...
Dale Earnhardt...
Princess Diana...
Che Guevara...
Kurt Cobain...
Bob Marley...
Christopher Reeves...

So if you have ever worn a shirt with the picture of a dead person on it to a restaurant, you likely were the table that sucked for that server. Check your closet.

You've seen a Jim Jones shirt at Red Lobster?

So... What drink did they order? Kool-Aid?

(Sorry for the awful joke)

Hitler? Someone had a shirt with HITLER on it? Boy, I hope it had a funny punchline...that is almost a refusal for me right there, giggle...but your point is well taken.
