If you have ever waited tables, you probably have many horror stories that still haunt you to this day. High maintenance customers, bad tippers and terrible paychecks are just a few of the major cons to serving in a restaurant. Recently, Reddit posted a thread that united all servers and requested them to share their stories from the trade. One waiter shared his story about a party of 90 that arrived at his restaurant without making a reservation! Another server said, “The guy in front of me ordered the crispy chicken sandwich with fries. Then asked if the fries could be gluten free since he was "deathly allergic." The customer ended up eating the fried chicken sandwich, which included gluten.  


What are your crazy tales from the trade?
