Some of this is shocking!
Sometimes, you don’t stop to realize who around you is listening to your conversation. Some professions go under the radar by most people. So it’s easy to forget that when you’re chowing down at your favorite restaurants, you may be sharing some information with people you forgot were listening.
These waiters and waitresses shared some of the most shocking things that they overheard on their shifts, and it’s clear that the people at their tables had totally forgotten they had ears!
Bartending, but here ya go.
I had my back to two guys who’d just arrived and were about 3 beers in. They start talking about a girl and what they’d do to her, nothing I haven’t heard a thousand times until this.
“Bet if we roofied her she’d do all of it” followed by laughter.
I just chalk it up to shitty humor until one suggests just dropping it in her next drink.
I stepped out of the bar, had my manager call the cops, and kicked them out when the cops got there. Searched and sure as fuck they had oxy and roofies on them. (Facerless)
Just Clowning Around
Party of 5 or 6, its a group of friends having dinner. In walks a clown. Clown starts randomly walking around the restaurant doing balloon animals for kids and shit like that. I have no idea what the f**k is going on, we didn’t hire this guy. He walks over to the table of 5 or 6 and selects a man from the table to perform a magic trick for. He did the trick, a small flash of smoke and fire happens and then magically there is an engagement ring on a rope. The man takes the ring and the woman gets on her knees and asks the man to marry her. The man says no, tells her to get up and they continue dinner. This table now has the attention of the entire restaurant (like 300-400 people on our busiest night). Everybody just turned away and started awkwardly eating like nothing happened. (did_it_right)
I had a summer job at Gilligan’s, which is a shitty seafood place around the Charleston area. I seat this obese black couple who were actually pretty funny. They reminded me a lot of Chef’s parents. Anyways, I bring them their drinks and ask if they’re ready to order. I can’t remember what the husband ordered, but the wife didn’t like it. So he looks at her and says “woman, I’ll still eat that a** of yours when you eat chili, so don’t give me no shit for ordering what I want”. She immediately replied “Harvey, ima just need you to shut the hell up”. Then they both started laughing. Best table ever. And they tipped me like $20. (shitterplug)
