The One Thing You Should Never Say To Your Waiter

May 22, 2016 by Isabel Jones
shefinds | Style

Though the customer is “always right,” there’s no doubt that your waiter sometimes hates you. I mean, it’s not like your waiter is defined by their profession. They probably love binge-watching House of Cards, eating Trader Joe’s frozen entrees, and playing a tension-filled round of Candy Crush just as much as you do! Just because your waiter is paid to serve you, doesn’t mean you should treat them as though they have no feelings.

Keeping this in mind, there are about a billion things you should refrain from telling/asking your waiter. Requesting a thousand menu edits and substitutions is probably not going to make you customer of the month. Neither is changing your order after it’s made its way to the kitchen… But, the one thing you should absolutely never do is a tad less obvious: you should never, ever request a table change.

Alright, never ever might have been a bit of an exaggeration. If there’s a dead body under your chair or a severed finger on the table, feel free to request a change. But be incredibly sparing with your table changes. And never, ever request a change after your food and/or drinks have arrived. There’s a slim window between sitting down and ordering that you must remain within if you care to preserve your courteous diner reputation.

Not only is it just a plainly annoying request, but it messes with the restaurant’s waiter-table ratio. Different waiters are responsible for different tables, so the table where you were originally seated was probably chosen on purpose. Changing tables may overload a particular waiter and ensure slower, less precise service. Basically, it’s a lose-lose situation. Make do with your less-than-ideal table, you can do it!
