Wanna Meet The Bitchy Waiter?

If you are in the New York City area next week, this is something you may be interested in attending. WNYC (Public Radio) will be hosting an event where servers and bartenders from across the city will share insights about the dining public, discuss industry trends, reveal pet peeves and trade behind-the-scenes stories. I will be there on the panel and I am super excited about it. It will eventually be broadcast on the radio, y'all. If for no other reason, you can come by to meet me and say hello. I will be the one with the bag over his head in order to remain anonymous. If you want to go, you have to email the host (not me) to RSVP. Her email is and all the details are at this link.

I would love to meet you in person. You and I have nothing in common other than we both hate spandex but I love your wit and humor and your excellent writing. (I am awaiting The Bitchy Waiter: The Novel) Although I would love to attend, alas, I am too far away to make a 10 hour road trip on short notice. Perhaps when I was younger, but no more. Have fun!

I appreciate this blog being a server myself. Sometimes I post complaints about being in the biz on my blog. I made a list of my top complaints as a server. Here is number 4:

4. “We’re in a hurry, could you have our food rushed?”

Well I don’t think I have a choice now do I? If I don’t have your food rushed then I won’t be getting a very good tip will I? OR you’ll just walk out on me because you won’t have time to eat it and I’ll be left with nothing.

Let me ask you a few questions, rushed one: If you’re in such a rush, why have you decided to come into a sit-down restaurant to be served when you know these things take time? Wendy’s is right around the corner! Does it look like I have nothing better to do than to make sure your food comes out extra fast (not to mention hot and properly prepared)? Do I look like the chef? Did you not notice ALL of the other guests sitting around you who are also waiting for their food, and would like it prepared in a timely manner? You are not the center of the universe.

If you'd like to read the whole list it's at

I'd love some feedback!

I wish I could attend, but I'm on the West coast. If you're ever in California let me know.

Thought you might find this interesting- maybe a possible blog post! It was an article on Yahoo and on the Yahoo homepage it read "A waiter is one of the eight types of people that could use the card in dangerous ways"
