Can I just tell everyone who takes a large group to a restaurant to be nice to servers? Sure, they're (usually) getting a huge tip at the end of the whole thing, but if you order a potato-leek soup for your baby and first thing you demand is to tell us snidely that it should be put into a cup instead of the bowl it comes in, that puts us in a sour mood.
Today was pretty tough; my table of 12 arrived at 11AM when we open and stayed well past 12:30 when we close. They were there until at least 1PM.
Now I know what serving a big party is like.
I have my final tomorrow and then I'm done with front of house!
