I'm never going to eat in a Friday's again at least.

I don't think you can technically call Golden Corral a restaurant.

I JUST FOUND THE BEST LOOPHOLE EVER, YOU GUYS!!!

I find it interesting that two of the most generally acknowledged laid back folks around these parts are both HELL ON WHEELS!!!

Hah! Isn't it crazy?

Yeah, it's like... by own admission, for all my caps lock-driven shenanigans around here, I'm massively laid-back.

Put me behind the wheel, and... well...

*sigh*
 
2012-07-10 05:48:38 PM  
Here is the thing. You shouldn't even be offered the OPTION of individual checks.

if someone is asking you on a regular basis, you either like 15, are eating in burger king, or are such a biatchy woman that they can call it before they get to the table.

Let me guess, they ask if you want it split after they take your sandwich order and you make 6 modifications to it, substitute the side, and ask for all of the dressing in little dishes on the side.
 
2012-07-10 05:48:46 PM  
HH and birdy are the only ones in this thread I would go out for a meal with.

They wouldn't have to split the check up because I would be picking it up for those two individuals.

You know who does that even more than tourists. Guys who work in IT consulting. You can tell they work in IT consulting because their backpacks identify their employer. Death to all of them.

wizden: Don't biatch about waiters until you've waited tables. Unless they're obviously aloof or rude or f*ck everything up. They're probably really f*cking busy.

Also, don't order a mojito when the bar is three deep.


But then how will the owner know that he or she needs to hire more people?

LineNoise: Fondle My Sweaters: InfamousBLT: This is absolutely what I'm saying! I'm saying that if the waitress comes up, says "are you ready to order?" We say "Yes," she says "how would you like the check split," then everyone is saved a massive headache and we all go home happy.

Why is it her responsibility to make sure this is clear, though, when you're the one deviating from standard behavior here? You want your burger plain? Ask for it plain, don't expect it plain. You want your check split? Make sure you ask before you order.

I would prefer my wait staff didn't make the assumption that I might be a cheap farking asshole who can't handle 4th grade math before I even have my drink order in.


I would prefer my wait staff didn't assume anything, ever, and asked, because assuming anything in the service industry is retarded.
I can tell you've never worked in the service industry, so now I have no idea where you're getting all this shiat from. As soon as you assume anything about a customer, you're going to get it wrong, and you're going to get food thrown at you (or, in my case, you're going to be politely asked to do it properly). I mean, jesus, I learned this when I started working when I was 15, so it's hardly a difficult concept.

I don't even drive. This is my fear of being a passenger in a cab, for the most part. I'd rather deal with crazy homeless folks every day than watch my life slowly drain away at a red light.

Huh. Is it really that rare for a server to ask this? I mean, I'd say that a server only doesn't ask maybe once out of 10-15 times when I'm out with friends how we want to split the check. Of those times when they don't ask, they usually just split it up anyways. It's a really rare day when they don't ask AND don't split...so this is hardly a common occurrence. Maybe it's because I don't eat at country clubs all the time, but really...most places that I frequent ask probably 90% of the time, so I never really considered that to be an atypical thing (which is why it really rustles my jimmies when they don't ask AND don't split it, because this means, in my mind, that they assumed one person is paying for everyone else).


The only place I can think of that might assume that checks should be split is in small college towns where 90% of their business is college kids. They may be able to assume that when 4 non-related dudes show up for dinner that they want the check split. Everywhere I've ever lived and worked operated on the one table/one check system unless it was specified otherwise (buffets and the like). Do you really live somewhere that restaurants operate differently than everywhere else?

Anyways, work is over, so I'm going home.

For LineNoise and seumasokelly, two final thoughts:

First, sorry I was a douche. Long day, took it out on you, no hard feelings
Secondly, I think the below comment explains why we have such different opinions on this. To me, asking is customary, for you, it is not. That really boils down to a small difference in perspective that ends up driving both sides insane. Anyways cheers folks.

If the owner isn't aware of that already he's pretty dumb in the first place. Usually waiters are busy because they're all drunks and someone inevitably calls in sick or just doesn't show up.

Something that really pisses me off at work:

Full elevator down 30 flights, asses to elbows. Some douchebag wanting to be chivalrous literally uses his arm to block everyone else from exiting the elevator to let all the women out first. Biatch, it's 5:00, I'm hungry and somewhat claustrophobic, so GTFO of my way. None of those women are going to blow you.

Lol, its just that all of my friends are poor, and I am not (yay economy), and they hate it when we get a check that isn't split, because I always have to pay for it because I'm the only one who can ever afford a whole check. It makes them feel really bad, and it makes me feel bad because they feel bad. And then it makes my wallet heavy with 1s that they have to scrounge around in their car for.

If you are on a bus or in a waiting room or in public washrooms with multiple stalls/urinals/whatever and there is still a place where you can sit without sitting next to someone else, SIT THERE.

Don't pass up the chance to sit alone, sit right next to me, then proceed to NOISILY AND SLOWLY EAT DISGUSTING SMELLING POTATO CHIPS.

The rule is, don't sit or pee next to someone else, unless forced to.
