That's how you get the cooks to spit in your food
@Super GingerBoy, as a cook I can confirm that we will fvck with your food in very subtle and petty ways if you're this customer.
This is why I lock the doors 5 mins early.
Money is money, back in my day we would say "never send away a paying customer"
@The mortiest morty, typically a server makes $2.13, in the US at least. So to add an hour or more to your already long shift for likely a couple bucks (possibly nothing at all). Is quite infuriating and is why customers like this are widely despised
@Natural Sarcasm , false. Federal minimum wage is 7.50 which means if no tip you get at least 7.50. In cali you get state minimum plus tip. So at least 11 dollars.
@Scrabby, they only compensate you if you make less then 7.50 over the course of the week. Not hour by hour or table by table. Meaning unless you’re a garbage waiter these customers aren’t normally worth the time
Edit: in Georgia at least they pay 2.13 an hour unless you make less then 7.50 with tips. The cost of living in California is significantly higher so they probably don’t follow the same guidelines. Which is why you can’t compare earning with the rest of the nation when talking about either Cali or NY as it’s much more expensive to live there compared to anywhere else in the US
@Natural Sarcasm , that was just a side point not a comparison. But by the logic, and quite factually, the individual customer is never "Going to be worth your time". The money comes from doing several tables in an hour that all tipped decent.
@Scrabby, exactly right. Throughout the shift a server will have multiple tables at a time and during closing will likely have none minus the person that decided to show up last minute
@Scrabby, is it safe for me to assume you’ve never worked in the service industry?
@Scrabby, well when I was a waiter in Illinois it was like 4.25 and Sarcasm is right. Even for $7.50 a $h1tty customer can suck my d1ck.
@Natural Sarcasm , McD's for 3 years. Starbucks for 2. Now I'm an HVAC tech. I just did my job. Basically I was making burgers and coffees for less than 10 cents each.
See where I work I just don’t give the option of dine in right before close, like carry out only if you’re gonna be this dick
