16 Things Your Server Doesn’t Want To Tell You

All servers have a love-hate relationship with their jobs — it’s like an unwritten rule. On the one hand, the people are fun, the environment is fast-paced, the job is eventful and the money, depending on where you work, can be really good.

These are all things servers would love to tell you, but between taking your order and making sure you’re satisfied enough to leave good tips, there really isn’t any time for complaining.
