My name is Ryen, INTP, I'm twenty years old. I go to college in Arkansas for Accounting but I strive to be many things. I enjoy trying my best to live, instead of just being alive.

This one million times over.
dealing with customers seems like the absolute biggest pain in the ass. especially here, we’re a tourist town, like a huge destination for exceptionally rich people to come visit…
dude this shit is every day. where i work is right off of i-30 and we get all kinds of tourist fucks too traveling around the arklatex. texarkana is the meeting between texas and arkansas. today was exceptional for people who like to come in and be difficult, mindless bafoons. i work in a diner but it’s not like a “24 hour breakfast all day” type. just like home food. fried everything. all that same stuff happens. being a waiter this shit happens to me CONSTANTLY. redoing and getting different of the same items. the worst is cleaning after a poorly supervised child, or a grump lady expecting a better experience than her last who has to tell you not to do a particular thing 11 times. sometimes its just shitty. but also sometimes it’s really good too.
at my old job i did prep and dish like what you’re doing, but it was for a mexican place and it was really laid back and we could pretty much tell customers to fuck off because it was pretty snobby to an extent. although i never did because i’m just not that type.
i think i took a ladies order 5 times today because of things she saw other servers walk out of the wait station with that she decided she wanted. the weirdest. i could go on forever with stories.
don’t get too bent up about it, because natural selection will get them in the end. haha
WHATS SUPER FUCKED UP IS
when i get a nice couple of older people and i give them really nice service and am real gentlemanly and all that extra and they go to pay (no tip on the table) then the woman comes up to me and hands me a $1 bill and says “thank you honey, this is for you!” and i have to act all appreciative and shit because if i didn’t who knows. on like a $25 tab. old people can go to hell when it comes to tipping, man.
