Waiting tables has to be one of the hardest jobs out there. Honestly, I don't think I could handle it. So when my order gets muddled or a server seems flustered I'll usually let it slide. Sometimes, though, things get weird. Jimmy Fallon recently asked viewers to send him tweet him their "weird waiter" stories, and the results are a hoot.
Doesn't everyone have a crazy restaurant story? Like the time a friend of mine ordered a cocktail with dinner. When her drink arrived there was a fly in it -- frozen in an ice cube! When she pointed it out to the waitress she shrugged and said, "So? You wanna another drink?" Um, maybe this wasn't the first time this had happened. Yikes! Amazingly, my friend said YES. The waitress brought a new drink over. "It's on the house," she said, "on account of the fly." I asked my friends to tell me their stories, and you will not believe the wackiness -- or maybe you will.
