When you go to a restaurant for dinner and a glass of wine you expect that you will get service for which pay. Do you expect that on arrival you will find a reserved table that ordered food served quickly enough and that the water glass is always full.

But then, disheveled waitress returns to your table and forgets lime. How dare she? After all, nothing complicated about it was not the job. That bitch, huh? Wrong.

As soon as you have ordered a glass of water and lime, another client poked her in the back and asked to bring more ketchup, before the potatoes cool.

She returns to the kitchen for ketchup and a glass of water with lime, and discovers that a strawberry daiquiri for the couple at the table 22B is still not ready. Or is it a table 22C? I think they were transferred, so it's probably a table 22C.

The bartender tells her that need daiquiri mix, she runs down, then found that they had no lime. It rises back up, grabs a glass of water and ketchup, brings you to the water, but he kicked her in the back with the phrase: "Where is my ketchup?»

She has a job. And whatever it was her tip.

18. If a restaurant is crowded, do not expect that you pay as much attention as if he was half empty.
We love to communicate with our customers, but when we had almost juggle dishes in time to serve all, we have to divide their attention equally.

19. Do not blame us for the price.
Waiters do not decide how much food and drink. Moreover, if the price is not on the menu, we do not have to warn you, but you can always ask us for yourself, and we will be happy to answer.

If you ask them to check defeated before you bring it, you add this one more task to their waiter. This is especially difficult during a big party where work automatic gratuities.

Splitting the check, do you choose guaranteed gratuities and most likely he will get them both on the order of one man, and not as from the company of 20 people.

This is because the restaurants are allowed to bypass the requirement for the minimum wage because of tips.

27. This work is likely to not rush your career waiter.
Many wealthy clients are down to the waiters. Remember that most of the work of the waiter is a temporary job or work for "survival».

It is very likely that your waiter works two jobs, or come here after the study or after a hard day, just to earn some money.

28. The longer you stay at the table, the more work you take away from your waiter.
You have every right to enjoy a leisurely meal in a restaurant. You just need to know that the longer you stay at the table after the eat, the more work you have to select your waiter, because he would have to serve more customers at your table and get more tips.

Out of politeness, if you stay at the table for much longer, you should reflect this in the tip. Time - money.

29. Do not stick out to the last in the restaurant.
If you are the only visitor at the restaurant later in the evening, your waiter waits until you leave, and he or she can safely go home at last. Provide your waiter service; pay the bill and move to the bar.

30. The mention of the waiters by name gives us a good review, a strong incentive.
Customers generally leave their reviews on websites when they want to give negative impressions. If you really enjoyed our service, we recommend best friends. To a large extent depend on the success of the restaurant reviews.

When the manager is reading pleasant reviews, which refers to one of the waiters, it is properly rewarded and he is going through yet another working day.

31. Treat us as the waiters, not as a servant.
Definitely, we are here to serve you and do whatever you have left a good impression about our restaurant. We want to develop a relationship with our regular clients and leave only positive impressions.

We go to work and put on our aprons, as well as you are going to the office, to tie a tie.

If you come and do not forget to read, you simplify the life of the waiters, which in turn, will make your dinner a pleasant impression.
