I’ve got to get this one off my chest cause every time I see a friend repost this ridiculous and most likely false story, it upsets me.
The story I’m referring to is a posting that was placed on Craig’s List by an anonymous worker from a ‘New York restaurant’ that claims cell phones are the reason why wait times and service is slow at all restaurants. It’s the new technology and the rude people who use them all the time that’s responsible for poor service, never the innocent wait staff.
First off, I’ve watched enough episodes of Mystery Diners to know that the staff isn’t always as innocent as this poster would like us to believe. Watch a half a dozen episodes of that show and you’ll never want to step food in any fine dining establishment ever again. Yet I’ve watched every episode and I still do go out to eat. Why? Because I don’t assume that every single person working in the food industry is as bad as the people I watched on TV. I don’t sweep every restaurant worker with the same brush. I don’t make sweeping generalizations of people like the person who posted this chicken shit anonymous critique on Craig’s List.
