I was at a restaurant with my friends a few years ago. I don't like choosing what to wear, so my wardrobe mainly consists of plain black shirts and jeans. The waiters at the restaurant I was at had black shirts and jeans, but they had the logo on the shirts, and wore aprons. I had finished my main meal, and decided to go to the restroom. I managed to get there fine, but on my way back, I heard a 'excuse me' in a somewhat entitled voice. I ignored it, as I hate confrontation (I have autism, so I find communication difficult). A few moments later, she tapped on my shoulder. This made me jump, as I wasn't expecting it. I turned around, and looked at her, waiting for a response. She started ordering her food. I think she thought that I was a waiter. I sheepishly said that I don't work there, and turned to walk back to my table. Then, she tugged on my sleeve. At this point, I was already a bit shaken, but she started shouting at me. She shouted things like she knew the manager and that I wo... keep reading on reddit ➡
This happened before everything shut down, but it has recently came up again and I wanted to get an outsider's perspective.
I (23f) have been "dating" Eric (31m) for around 8 months now and this happened 1.5 months ago. I say dating in quotes because he never wanted to put labels on anything after coming out of another relationship, which I completely understand, I've done the same in the past. I came up to him because I felt him getting distant all of a sudden, and he said I shouldn't worry and added "I don't worry about you like that, since we aren't even in a formal relationship", which hurt me, but he said he would make it up by taking me on a "real date" after a while without one.
He wanted it to be a surprise, but it moderately fancy, modern restaurant. There was only an issue: it was an Asian seafood restaurant and I have a very minor allergy to fish and, while I won't die from eating it, oceany smells leave me queasy, so I don't like seafood in general. He knew that since I'v... keep reading on reddit ➡
>I can never lie to my son. He’s six going on damn near 30. He’s on Google all day, typing my name. So when I got suspended, he was interrogating me like, “Dad, they said you were doing drugs. They said you had a seizure. They said you can’t play no more. What’s going on?” I had to break it down for him in a way he could understand, like in his little cartoon movies. I said, “You know how there’s always a beginning, a middle and an end? In the beginning, it’s all good, right? Spider-Man is doing his thing. He’s discovering his superpowers. He’s chillin’. But in the middle, what happens? The hero always messes up. He gets knocked in the dirt. There’s always a sad part, right? Well, that’s where your dad’s been at. He made a mistake. He lost his superpowers for a minute. But it’s gonna be alright. We’re gonna make it through.”

Well this happened to me 1 year ago and it wasn't with a Karen but the confusion was there. First of all I would like to apologize for any spelling mistake, English is not my 1st language
Cast: Me: OP Confused Employee: CE
Well this happened during the festivities in my city, normally when it is daytime the streets belong to adults and at night to the youngest (all with the purpose of drinking alcohol). My mother does not like to party but we had to run some errands, at one point we needed to change a large bill for smaller ones so I went to a bar to change, the uniform here is a red polo shirt, and surprise I had one (I have to say that I was 15 years old but I looked 18/20 because I have a finished beard), I left the bar and I came across CE and it was so;
CE: (screaming) WHERE HAVE YOU PLACED THE TRAY ?!
OP: What tray? (I suppose that each waiter has a tray to carry the glasses more comfortably)
CE: THE TRAY! WHERE HAVE YOU PUT IT?
OP: I think you have been confused

Wait. Never mind. That wasn't my waiter.
Every time I have a conversation with someone who says we need to reopen the economy because workers such as the above want to go back to work, I ask them if they are that type of worker and every single time their answer is no. Then when I dig further into the conversation it’s always made clear that the person doesn’t care about the workers, it’s either a business owner worried about losing their business or someone who pretends to care about the workers because they want to be able to get the hair cut, go shopping, watch a movie.
I have a friend who works at a major retailer and she is currently struggling more than usual financially however if you ask her if she wants to go back to work her answer is there is no way in hell she’s going back to a $9 an hour job to put herself and her family in danger.
My examples are all anecdotal so that’s my question to this sub. Are you someone who works these typically low wage jobs above who want the economy to reopen so you can get back t... keep reading on reddit ➡

Sometimes these 2 people - dad and son come over to the reasturant. Now the dad looks normal, but the (probably at 23) son looks almost amaxing and he like wears makeup. He has a boyfriend and all. I wish i could be a little more like him, but instead i have to
"shave my hair so i can look manly or something" - my dad
What if i dont want to look as manly? He even agrees that i looked my best at 9 years old when i had some puffy long hair. I just wish my hair did the same now cause i'd look perfect.
I feel like that explains why I didn't enjoy DS9, Voyager, etc. The acting was fine and there are some individually great moments, but the tone felt snarky in a way that TNG didn't.
But I think they bring a lot to the table
Whenever I go to a fast food joint like 5 guys I place my order, they give me a number and when the food is ready I pick it up from the counter. If I need a refill on my drink, I go to the sofa fountain and get it myself. This business model is universal at nearly every fast food chain, so why can't they do it at higher end restaurants? At least make it an option. I personally don't like the idea of being waited on. I feel an unnecessary urge to be overly friendly for fear that my food will be tampered with if I do anything to upset them and 90% of the time the generosity of my tip doesn't reflect my satisfaction but the fear that if I don't tip highly enough they'll remember me and tamper with my food next time I'm there. Am I being neurotic? I have no idea, but I'd rather not be put in that position in the first place. Let me place my own order and carry my own plate.
Medium: "I can see it, he wants it well done"
The waiter replies, ‘Thanks for telling me. I’ll make a note on the bill. Iced coffee is one Euro more’.
What job should I go for?
Not sure what job to take. My parents have told me that I should take the call center job because it's remote and it will make me look good on resumes.
Hello everyone! Big thanks to this whole community!

I used Mike Myers' videos, Professor Messer, Jason Dions Practice tests, examcompass practice tests and crucialexams.
Mike Myers: Probably the most used material I had. I like his style of delivery and it was well worth the money. I got it on sale for like $11. It was well worth it.
Professor Messer: as always, big thanks to professor messer! His style is a bit more dry and to the point. I used him as my secondary material just in case I needed clarification on a particular objective.
Jason Dion's Practice Tests: I also got them while they were on sale, I think like $12. Well worth the price. The PBQ's alone ma... keep reading on reddit ➡
I understand the Sopranos is a TV show so some unrealistic things are bound to happen but it always kind of bugged me how easily Chris and Paule got away with murdering the waiter in season 5. Paulie just says "we aren't known down there so I'm not too worried about the cops" and that's the end of it. I don't know where they would go within driving distance that would make them totally unknown civilians when the FBI were clearly keeping tabs on everyone. Plus, it seems like it wouldn't be too terribly difficult of an investigation to figure out, regardless of who they were. At the very least it probably would've been easy to figure out that someone from Tony's group was responsible for the murder. Realistically, the waiter probably would have complained to one of his coworkers that the guys he just served barely tipped on a $1,000 bill so someone could have told police that the waiter went out to argue with the guys he just served and could have identified chris and paulie. Even if the... keep reading on reddit ➡
This is a high risk low reward situation in my mind. I have nothing against wait staff, I was one myself. I’d rather it just be written down so it’s right. We had a couple times where the requests were wrong which led to sending food back, which sucks for the customers, waiters, and cooks. I just don’t get the allure of trying to memorize. I’d probably tip more for accuracy then someone taking the order in their head.
Currently my language, set in modern day South-West England has a couple of ways. There are prefixes fas- and ner- derived from the native words fás 'man' and neri 'woman'.
e.g. fasdocatorö 'male doctor', nerdocatorö 'female doctor'
There's also the borrowed English suffix -esa (from -ess), giving forms like docatoresa 'doctor' or historically 'nurse'.
Anyone got some more interesting ways of doing this?
A married couple decides to brave Covid and eat out for their anniversary at a fancy restaurant. They’ve been ordering Grubhub for months and are excited to support a local business in person. They order soup, but as it arrives, the man accidentally knock his spoon onto the floor with his elbow. To his surprise a waiter promptly picks up the dirty spoon and gives him a clean one right from his shirt pocket.
"Wow, you guys all carry spoons in your pocket?" His wife asks.
"Well sure," the waiter replies. "We need to turn tables 20% faster with all the rules in place. We had an efficiency consultant in last week and he told us we could increase overall productivity by 6.8% by carrying fresh spoons in our pockets. Now we all do it."
"Impressive," the couple agrees. "By the way,” says the man, “I should let you know that you have a piece of string hanging out of your fly."
"Oh we all do!" the waiter replies. "The consultant said we were wasting valuable time washing our hands. He tol... keep reading on reddit ➡

Edit 2: And then I apply for apprenticeship (cashier) 12 different locations and I get denied... Holy shit.
Should I even try at this point or accept that I'll be NEET pretty much forever except doing NEET courses and mandatory apprenticeships (which I'm not able to finish)?
So obviously we signed him, do you guys think this time in quarantine helped him get back in shape and he will be able to contribute right away? Obviously he wasn’t able to practice with the team but it was just a guy I forgot about. Thoughts?!
Best group of Bangladeshi back waiters ever. The tallest biggest asshole of the bunch just died. Fuck. Rashid, you were such a pain in the ass but when the floor was nuts, you got shit done along with Wahed and Mo. Fuck. Ramadan Mubarak brother.
So with coronavirus wrecking havoc, waitresses are posting about how bored they are on tik tok. How are they supposed to make enough money? They get 2.13/hr plus tips, but when they dont reach the minimum wage of 7.25, the restaurant is required to make up that difference and pay them. So there are 2 ways to look at this. One can say that if the waitress or waiter works hard and is friendly, they should definitely make more than 7.25 and possibly much higher than that, or that a waitress has no motivation to work that work since they are guaranteed minimum wage no matter how good they do. Also people are dicks and will tip like shit. And then people are drunk and will tip like crazy. But now that there are no actual customers who can tip besides the ones getting carryout, what is the point off tipping? Isn't the point of tipping to thank your waitress or waiter for the amazing service and experience they gave you? Or is it to provide them income when the restaurant isnt willing to do t... keep reading on reddit ➡
