Pet peeve while eating out

Feb 27 14 Comments

It drives me crazy when I go to a restaurant and the server doesn’t write down the order(s).
Eg - today I stopped by a restaurant in LAX while waiting for my flight. It’s busy and I ordered a grilled fish taco with corn tortilla. The waitress proceeded to bring me a fried fish taco with flour tortilla. Grrrr. Write down the orders. Your memory isn’t that good!

I’m not a jerk so I still tipped 20%. 😕

What’s your pet peeve?

      JMP is the daily dose of entertainment for a lot of us. You keep it up boy!

      Aside from that, he did say fish tacos. Maybe title and body are the same thing.

    My pet peeve is the tipping culture in which even bad service is worthy if extra money. Pay wait staff a living wage and dump tips.

      You do realize your meal will be 20% more expensive and that waiters will be even less motivated to go above and beyond right?

      Particularly when eating alone, I don't want waiters to go above and beyond. I don't need them at all. I'd gladly walk over to the kitchen and pick the dishes up myself. Service just isn't that valuable.
