I really enjoy working in the hospitality industry; I find it fun, and although it may be samey, something different happens every shift and you meet some really nice people - it's very much a social job. I love the interactions with people the most, and being an English girl in Australia, I get a lot of people asking me questions and having conversations with me.

Here are just a few thoughts that personally go through my head whilst working, but I'm sure a lot of restaurant workers can relate.


1. How're you? Okay, you're just going to ignore me...I'm fine, thank you very much for asking.
2. Oh, so you're just going to sit yourself, that's fine, we don't have a system in place or anything.
3. You're food's terrible? Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, what can I do...oh...you're joking? 
4. Please get off your phone so I can take your order.
5. Why would anyone not finish their coleslaw? WHYY?!
6. Blergh, why does left-over food make me feel sick when I'm throwing it away?
7. She said she liked it, but she left over half of her meal! Was she lying to me?
8. Yay, screaming kids are my fave! Have some colouring and shut up!
9. You're sorry about the mess? I'm sure you're sorry, but would you let your kids do that at home? I'm pretty sure you wouldn't.
10. Oh...you're actually taking me up on tasting the wine? Please don't send it back, I wouldn't know what to do.
11. Oh, a vegan (Sorry vegans)
12. No need to shout at me that you're not ready, I'm just doing my job!
13. You're gonna act like a jerk towards me? Okay, I will be extra nice just to annoy you!
14. You're ready to order, okay.....actually....maybe you're not
15. Can you please hurry up and order, I don't have half a dozen other tables to see or anything!
16. Ahh, you're so lovely and I'd love to stay but I really can't talk...okay...maybe a couple more minutes!
17. You've been waiting for an hour have you? I'm pretty sure I put through your order 15 minutes ago - shut up and be patient!
18. Is it wrong that I just wanna try this leftover food...they haven't touched it or anything!
19. Please be wastage please be wastage! I love free food!
20. You didn't like it so you're not paying for it? Since when was that a thing?

Have you ever worked in a restaurant?
