Bad Luck Waiter

I was travelling in up State New York while working a sales job and
stopped for lunch. My table was in an elevated section so I could
diagonally look down. Below me was a table with perhaps 6 customers.
The waiter came over with a tray of water glasses and proceeded to tip
a glass off and nail one of the guys at the table. The waiter
apologized and there were several restaurant personnel that rushed
over, changed the tablecloth, and made things “right”. The same
waiter comes back to the table with another tray of water and proceeds
to dumb another glass of water off his tray on exactly the same
customer, who immediately stood up looking like he had just taken a
massive horse piss in his pants. The embarrassed waiter basically just
stood there, made a small hmmmm sound like Curley of the Three
Stooges, and stomped his feet, still holding the now empty tray. Again
there was a wave of restaurant personnel scurrying around making
things “right” again. The waiter said to the now “moist”
patron “I am sorry sir, that has never happened to me before.” To
which the patron immediately quipped back “First day on the job no
doubt.” I don’t recall if they then changed waiters for that table
but if they did not his tip would likely have been “Change Professions”.

    I’m waiting for a story from a server in up state New York to post a story about how he “accidently” doused an asshole customer with water twice in 2 minutes.

    Yep, Travis, keep blaming the customer. As if it could never be the waiter’s fault.

    Um… I’m not sure what comment you were reading, but Travis never said anything about blaming the customer. At this point you’re just making things up to put people down, psycho.
