Alrighty. Long night at work. 3-10 shift, been dead most of the night, but I still had a decent amount of tables. Manager was happy with me, made 18-19% average on tips, so I'm in a great mood. 10 o'clock rolls around, so I start getting my sidework done.
Third shifters all get double/triple sat as soon as they walk in, so I decide to get drink orders for a couple tables to help out. I walk up to the table, and get as far as "Hey there. Can I get you so-" "You're ugly! We want a good looking girl waiter."
-turns around and walks away without saying a word-
Seriously, what the hell? I was just trying to help out my coworker. And the best part? These people were UGLY. I mean, it looked like that one kid from Deliverance, in the Dueling Banjos scene, got thrown off Ugly Cliff into the Ugly Tree, where he proceeded to hit every branch on the way down before falling into Ugly Puddle. I'm not insanely good looking, but I'm damn sure not ugly. My manager said it was like comparing a beautiful, flawless diamond to a pile of cow manure. She also said they looked like they were brother and sister.
Later, as I was walking out with my jacket on, they shouted at me from across the room for another hot chocolate. I just smiled and kept walking.
The rest of the night was more than enough to make up for it though.
It feels good to be the one people go to for advice/help/damage control.
