Going out to eat or grab a coffee is a natural part of our daily lives. We usually go somewhere, sit down and wait for the waiter to come and take our order. There is certain etiquette at restaurants for both guest and server that we all usually abide by. However, the men and women in the service industry know a lot that we as guests do not. Several of these servers decided to give us a look into the true nature of serving others and the behind the scenes action that takes place in the restaurants or cafe. We thought that we knew what happened when we walked in a place to grab a meal, whether a fancy restaurant or a coffee shop, but boy was we wrong. We are sure that you will be surprised to learn of what these service industry insiders have to say, coming directly from the horse’s mouth. Behind the scenes of the restaurant industry is far more dramatic and tumultuous than expected, even with more and more documentaries coming out on the subject.
They hate preparing tea
Coffee is one thing, tea is a wholly different other. A waiter in New York City said that when someone asks for tea, the waiter is always annoyed by the detailed job. The process is tedious and they do not like going to get a pot, add water to boil, slice up a lemon, take the honey and collect a spoon and cup.
There are too many pieces to this particular exercise that they do not like it. To be fair, that does sound like a lot of things to remember and we never thought about how much work it takes.
