She regularly gives viewers a taste of her life in the service industry
Don’t piss off your waitress! Here’s what NOT to do while eating
- Interrupt them
- Ask them something while they are at it
- Say your order too soon
- Refuse to take no for an answer
- Tell them your food was bad even though you ate it all
- Order something that is not on the menu
She captioned the video: “What servers really want to say, but we’ll never say.”
The TikToker reenacted her patron’s hobbies in a skit.
She revealed that some of her biggest pet peeves were customers spitting out their orders too quickly, interrupting her when she’s busy, and refusing to believe her when she says an item isn’t available.
The video started with the server walking past some tables with a tray filled with cups.
A patron then called out to her and said, ‘Hello, I’m ready to order.’
The waitress replied, “Yeah, let me take your order while I hold a tray full of damned drinks.”
Then the clip cuts to the server bringing three plates filled with food to a table, before being hounded by a restaurant about where their food was.
“Okay guys, well I’ve got your salmon, a burger and you -” she said before being cut off by a customer.
‘Where’s the pasta? The pasta we ordered?’ early dinner.
The content creator and the waitress replied, “I’ve got three damn plates in my hand.” That’s in the kitchen; give me a minute.’
In another shot, the server stands next to a table, ready to take a customer’s order.
However, the encounter quickly takes a turn when the restaurant refuses to take no for an answer.

“Can I have oysters?” the customer asked, to which the waitress said, “So we don’t actually have any oysters here.”
However, the patron didn’t seem to believe this could be true, adding, “Are you sure?” Don’t you really have any oysters?’
“Can I have oysters?” the customer asks, to which the server replies, “So we don’t actually have any oysters here.”
‘I’m not going to say it again. I work here. We don’t have oysters. If you ask me twice, we’re not getting any oysters. We don’t have oysters,’ the waitress answered.
The content creator is then seen acting out another ordering scenario that frustrates her.
As she was taking orders, a customer said, “Can I have truffle fries – save the truffle – with a house salad, no onion?” I’ll have the bacon cheeseburger too, no tomatoes.’
The server then interrupted her and added, “OK, baby, baby, baby, take it easy.” I can’t type all this that fast.’
Other servers flocked to the comments to agree with the waitress and share their own annoyances
In a follow-up video, she said she hated it when customers claimed they didn’t like their food despite eating the entire plate.
Other servers flocked to the comments to agree with the waitress and share their own annoyances.
“As a former waitress, I agree. I hated it when people ordered things that weren’t on the menu and said they had it last time they were there,” one wrote.
Another user added, “If they ask for straws as soon as the cup hits the table, give it a second.”
“Or if it’s a big group of people and they all ignore you,” someone else said.
Another person commented, “Or when you bring out food and everyone magically forgets what they ordered, like it’s real.”
“Thank you for representing our suppressed anger,” another user added.
