‘You just lost a customer’: Customer gets removed from restaurant after owner stands up to him for yelling at one of the servers who messed up his receipt

‘You just lost a customer’: Customer gets removed from restaurant after owner stands up to him for yelling at one of the servers who messed up his receipt

As someone who has worked a lot in customer service, I can assure you that I have never seen a coworker react badly to a customer yelling, ‘You just lost a customer!’. Because the honest truth is, we just didn't care. I can promise you it's quite universal, as anyone working a minimum wage job just isn't getting paid enough to care.

'Give 0% tip, get 0% service': Casino server gets payback on a notorious no-tip customer, causes 'tipping culture' controversy in the comment section

It's no secret that tipping culture in America has gotten out of hand in the last few years. Every business with an iPad as their POS system will flip their little screen around to their customers they sheepishly say, ‘It’s just going to ask you a few questions'… Sorry, but it's hard to justify tipping 35% on a $7 coffee, but the social pressure of the barista with an imperious stare, a septum piercing, and electric pink hair is tough to ignore.

We've all been there—it's a big friend group dinner. It took weeks to plan and some of these friends you hardly ever see, so you really really want to go. But then the anxiety starts to set in when you start about how that splitting of the check is going to go down. Some friends are in the mindset of “just split everything down the middle!” Even though some people ordered $20 cocktails and prime rib and you just got water and a side salad. Others are all about separate checks, but who will be t…

'I swear I’m not cheap': Waiters discuss what are 'reasonable' and 'unreasonable' tipping habits in the U.S.

When you place an order for pick up—which means you are going to the store, they are handing you a bag of your food, and then you take it home yourself—are you leaving a tip? How much of a tip? Less than the usual 20% or none at all? What about when it's a delivery or sit-down meal? Do you take out of your tip when a sauce is forgotten or utensils missing?

‘He threw a $100 bill at me’: Top tipping stories that capture working in customer service

Working in customer service is quite a colorful experience, as you get to meet a whole bunch of people, some of whom are polite, others, not so much.

'The best customers I've had in weeks were kids': Longtime servers share memorable moments of kids outshining the adults as ideal customers

Kids get a bad reputation in the service industry. However, anyone who has ever worked at a family restaurant know the truth—it's always the parents. Kids will be kids, we all know that, and it's up to the parents or guardians to teach their kids how to behave. So when an adult allows their tiny human to run around a restaurant like it's their personal playroom, of course everyone working there is going to be annoyed. Other than the fact that it's a real danger for your kid to be doing that whi…
