A Restaurant Owner Supports His Wait Staff Against Rude Customers

If you’ve ever worked in a restaurant, you’ve undoubtedly encountered a rude customer at some point in your career.

You know the type—the family that leaves a mess or has an issue with a server for unknown reasons. Mostly, some people just don’t respect the establishment’s wishes. One restaurant had to deal with this type of patron when it came to seating.

According to a Redditor, the restaurant she worked faced the entrance of a state park, so staffers had to deal with throngs of tourists who often wanted to do things their own way, like one family who tried to eat take out in an off-limits area.

The wait staff thought they had recognized them as having been at the restaurant earlier, as they had takeout boxes and were told to eat at the picnic tables outside.

The group stood their ground in the section they weren’t supposed to be seated in. So, the servers decided to give them a taste of their own medicine and ignored them.

The lunch rush came and went. They immediately went to complain to the owner, but he stuck up for his workers.
