    Overly Solicitous Wait Staff

    Family took me out for dinner for my birthday tonight and we got one of those overly solicitous waitresses/waiters (in this case a she). Man I hate that ****. You know the ones where they fawn all over you, work way too hard at acting like your enjoyment is their sole reason in life. Describe the specials to a degree and with so many adjectives that it's ad nauseum. It's funny to me cuz maybe they think by being "so engaged" they're giving you outstanding service and deserving the big tip but to me it's actually the reverse--sucky service. For one thing, they become so much of a hovering presence they actually impinge upon the meal and make it uncomfortable. For another, I'm not there to get chatty and engage with you as wait staff. This moron chick kept referring to Mrs. B as "Milady" and me as "Good Sir." Man by the time the appetizers came I wanted to ****ing donkey punch the *****. Then there's the in addition to their behavior ****ing up your meal, you know they're only doing it in the first place cuz they're so tip conscious. Except you want to say ""Ya I know you want 20+% and I'd give it to you if you'd just back the **** off, stop being such an obvious greedy mother****er, and ****ing up my birthday dinner with these stupid little jokes and conversational asides that nobody thinks are funny. Bad enough paying the "summer menu prices": $25 for six shrimp + spaghetti noodles and white sauce. You're a waitress. Serve the food and STFU. Encounter these types the most in "tourist" type scenarios...(the Vineyard, Sante Fe, Stowe, or in this case Marblehead, MA).

    Also I bought my freshwater fishing license this afternoon so I could take my son fishing in Maine. Convenience fee? WTF is convenience fee?

    That's how they roll at Medieval Times.

    Didn't the moat, minstrelsy, lack of utensils and all-around knavery tip you off?

    well the minstrelsy could be confused for most prog rock

    What I learned from this post: Bushy's waitress was fat, ugly, or some combination of the two.

    No chance of complaint of too much attention from her if she was attractive.

    It's simple. The server lady wanted your junk. It's obvious. If that's not hitting on someone, then I don't know WHAT is.

    How do people who need to ride mass-transit afford 25 dollar meals?

    Get off the dole and buy a car.

    Next time, take the family out to Hooters.


    I'm sure your view on the waitresses will change when they stick their tits in your face.

    Except it was a seafood place. The only thing medieval about it were the dinner rolls.

    This.


    I tend to get the opposite - wait staff who ignores you....those f*cks really get to me. Thus the reason if I get good service I tip very well.
