“Oh and P.S….”

One day at work I was clearing a table, the booth was just long enough that I could not reach the end. I was already pretty piled high with plates and the Mother at the table handed me the last plate that was sitting down at the end. It had a few napkins over the top of it, but I didn’t really think much of it because people generally pile our linen napkins on top of their plates after they’ve finished. As I put this last plate on top of the stack carefully balanced in my arm and almost start to walk away, the Mom decides it is a good time to say, “Oh and P.S. my son threw up a lot in that plate so be careful”. Great lady thanks for letting me know after I have already awkwardly placed it in my plate stack closest to my FACE!!!! It’s going to be a long walk to the kitchen…..

    The other day I had a woman hand me what I thought was a ball of napkins and ask me to throw it away for her. After I took it, I realized it was a used diaper.

    Gross! That lady knew what she was doing and waited until you committed to retrieving the plate I’d bet – if she had an conscience the tip should have hit a healthy 30%.

    (I just came across your blog – great site!)

    What the hell is everybody’s problem? I’ve been waiting tables for 12 years and have seen this type of stuff and other disgusting stuff over the years. It’s your job to serve and clean up after your guests. Their tips pay your bills and their business keeps you in a job. Quit whining or geet a different job you bunch of Pussys.

    Being a server myself I totaly understand where everyone is coming from, and TrayPixie stop being a dick just because you are probably the type of person who would fucking go out to eat and let you kid throw up in a plate and fail to metion it ahead of time to the waiter…its not that fact that the kid threw up in the plate, cause lets face it, its better then the floor or the table, but I think the point here is the women could have not handed the plate to the waiter and THEN decided to say something…I mean come on…just because we have the job of “server” does not mean I am there so your fucking dirty ass can fucking put more food on the table and floor then in your mouth….I am there to help you enjoy and dinner that you didnt have to slave over at home….

    I would understand a rant if you spilled the plate on yourself. What is the mother supposed to d, leave it there and not say anything? Please never have kids or even pets if you don’t like cleaning up “gross” things.
    As a young adult I worked as a janitor/maid (business and homes). Half the time my boss didn’t pay me as he claimed I didn’t work the hours. Meanwhile I spent those hours scrubbing poo off toilet seats, scraping bloody tampons from ceilings, and getting boogers off kid’s bedroom walls.
    My waitressing job is delightful compared to that, plus there is tips so make way more than minimum wage. I would gladly carry a plate of vomit; I feel bad for the dishwasher on the otherhand.
