"I had a couple that came in with their kid. It's slow and we have time to take it slow, so I'm just relaxing there when I see the couple getting into an argument. It's clear from the facial expressions that they are getting into a heated argument. Just as I'm about to come over with the bill (before it got even worse), she throws her drink at his face, throws the food on the ground, and leaves with the kid. He's stranded at the restaurant since she took the car and awkwardly stays here for about an hour. We tried to make him comfortable but it was incredibly awkward. After he left, the police came to our restaurant about 3 hours later asking if he ate here. Turns out, he was killed that night by a hit and run driver. I asked what happened, or if they thought it was her, and they told me it was confidential. But I don't think it was her. But imagine how s--tty she must have felt. She basically told him to walk home and he never came home that night" (Source).
"I had a table of two older couples, likely in their early 60s. They were very polite and reserved (your typical old, white people).. until the alcohol started flowing. After about their third or fourth round, I go to refill one of their waters and as I'm approaching the table from behind one of the women, she defensively says, 'I may not be a f--king scientist but I give really good blow jobs!' One of the men saw me trying not to laugh and so he started laughing, which prompted the drunk woman to look up at me and explain, 'Honey, if you learn anything about love, let it be that. A man will forget how dumb you are if you can suck a mean d--k.' I died laughing, thanked her for her advice, and they left me a really good cash tip in addition to the life lesson (Too bad I'm a lesbian. Lol)" (Source).
"Waffle House waitress for four years in high school... I saw and heard so much s--t. I honestly got used to old truckers asking me if I wanted to make an 'extra tip' in the parking lot at the grand ol' age of 16. But the one time I literally had to say 'what the f--k' I didn't even understand the conversation. Two Latino couples were sharing a booth and seemed to be having a good time. I don't speak Spanish but nothing in their tone made it seem unusual. Out of nowhere one of the husbands grabs his wife by the back of her hair, slams her face into the table, and just goes about his conversation. He didn't even look at her. She wiped her face off and just went back to talking and listening. No one batted an eye at the table. I delivered their food a few minutes later and all four of them seemed like nothing out of the ordinary had happened. I've called out dozens of customers in my day (you can say whatever the hell you want as a WF waitress, not exactly a classy joint) but I had NO idea how to respond that scenario" (Source).
"I used to work behind a bar and heard some real gold. My personal favourite was this man who came in always bought his dog a better pint (theakstons old peculiar) than what he was having (fosters). If that's not f--ked up I don't what is. To be clear though, it's pretty common in rural Yorkshire to buy your dog a pint. I just pour it into a bowl and they lap it up like no tomorrow. This was an Alsation that could take about 3 pints of strong ale on your average night" (Source).
