"Campers" at resturants.... what's your opinion?
I have to ask this question because I need to know! By day I am an anything but mild mannered school teacher, but by night I wait tables (most teachers have to have second jobs.... I'm sure you know). I wait tables at a trendy little place in the Ghent section of Norfolk, Va. Some of you Navy or Hampton Roads DUers may know the area. The Green Onion has 6 tables outside, 11 inside. Most of our customers are great. Do their thing and go. BUT SOME think we're starbucks..... get an appetizer and water and sit for three or more hours. In other words they CAMP! I have no problem with people who come in and wish to make an evening of dinner or an afternoon of lunch/brunch. They have desserts, coffee, MORE LIQUOR! BUT the campers!!!!! I hate them. AND they rarely tip well after taking up your table for most of the night. I eat out all the time and NEVER do this annoying shit! Is it only people who have never done this type of work who do this?
Are my feelings on this matter out of line?
What are your thoughts?
AND have YOU ever done this work?
IF and I mean IF I wanted to..I could be a real asshole.............:D
