8 RUDE BEHAVIORS AT RESTAURANTS ALL SERVERS HATE    

When customers ignore a server’s greeting or questions, it creates an unwelcoming start to the dining experience. Servers often begin with a friendly introduction and questions to establish rapport and understand your needs.

Ignoring Greetings

Cleaning up after such messes takes time away from other customer service duties. Patrons should be mindful of their dining space and treat it with respect.

Making Messes Intentionally

Delaying or ignoring the bill not only holds up the server’s workflow but also affects the turnover rate of tables, which is crucial during busy times.

Ignoring the Bill

Expecting special treatment beyond reasonable accommodations can put servers in a difficult position.

Treating servers rudely or dismissively can significantly affect their morale and the quality of service.
