BON APPÉTIT

‘Salt and pepper?’

‘I’ll bring some over, sir. Any sauces?’

‘Ketchup, please darling.’

He gave me that look. That look that they all have that ends by drifting from my face down to my chest and as I walk away I can feel his eyes staring at my rear. The uniform we’re made to wear doesn’t help, tight black trousers and white blouse, top two buttons undone.

‘Table 3, order up!’

I’ll take my customary revenge, my only little moment of satisfaction. I hock a good loogie into his soup and carry it over. Give him the smile as the first spoonful reaches his mouth.

‘Enjoy, sir.’

  1. Ugh. Some customers are so lecherous. I couldn’t imagine doing such a thing though it was tempting to accidentally on purpose drope a plate in their lap…

  2. Exactly! My sister in law is one who treats server staff poorly. I treat anyone handling my food with great care and respect. When I can’t do that. I leave. Well done.

  3. It was great to catch up with you, Iain. I’ve been doing so much research and striving away on non-fiction writing projects that I stopped doing these, and am trying to get back into the weekly swing of it. I’ve heard some horror stories of what happens when you upset staff in restaurants. Great story.Had a laugh.
    Best wishes,

  4. UGH! She had better save up a huge reservoir of lugies for each shift. This type of lascivious ogling is done as routine upon waitresses (and waiters!) Is it any wonder restaurants are begging for servers? BTW I absolutely disagree with how she handled it!

  5. Oh no. That is so unhygienic. I have nightmares about someone doing this to me. Not to say this guy doesn’t deserve it, or that (I hope) I’ve ever given anyone reason to, but ewww….
