Sometimes Kindness is Simply Taking a Moment to Think Before you Judge

“So here’s the deal. Our service tonight sucked. Took 20 minutes to get water, 40 minutes for an appetizer and over an hour for our entree.

People all around us were making fun of the restaurant & how bad the service random act of kindnesswas. Yeah, it was pretty terrible. But, it was very obvious that the issue was being short staffed, not the server. He was running around like crazy and never acted annoyed with any table.

At one point we counted he had 12 tables plus the bar. More than any one person could handle!

As I sat there and watched him run back & forth and apologize for the wait, I said to Steven… Wow, this used to be us. Waiting tables. I don’t miss it at all and I never loved that job. I did it for the tips.

Steven and I agreed it would feel good to make this guys night when he would probably be getting minimal to no tips due to slow service. We walked out before he saw this and I’m not posting this for a pat on the back.

I’m just sharing this as a friendly reminder to think of the entire situation, before you judge. And always always always remember where you came from.”

  1. So true. I used to wait tables to pay for college and yup, was in the weeds more often than not. I remember one incident whereas I was the only server on the floor at at beach restaurant first week of summer. My table ordered every $$ thing on the menu, lambasted me for service and them walked on the bill. I had to pay it. I have always had the same affinity to service workers who are doing their very best. They are only human. Thanks for the reminder.
