Bangalore: Who wouldn't love going out for a meal - no hassles of cleaning or cooking! There is one person - your waiter. Servers work really hard to make your dining experience enjoyable. But there are more than a few things that you should take care of. So here's what is actually running in your server's mind while they are waiting on you.
1. Tips are our salary - they're immensely essential to us: A waiter's salary is low because they get tips. So when diners do not tip the waiter, they get frustrated. Waiters though know a few techniques that they make use of I order to get their fair share of tips like making separate bills especially if it's a big group of people. As they think that a good tip maybe lost when a huge bill is paid. 2. What waiters Lie About: * When a customer asks a waiter how a certain dish is, they end up getting a reply that says, "It's one of our restaurant's specialties." There are mighty chances that the waiter doesn't like the dish! Waiters are not allowed to tell customers that they do not like the dish as it would hamper the number of orders it would get. * If a customer orders a drink that is annoying to make, waiters simple say that it is "unavailable" because they just don't want to make it! But if you order just water instead of an alternative drink, they suddenly have what you ordered in the first place as they don't want to lose out the order on the bill!
