10 Struggles All Servers Agree To Be Contemptible And Reprehensible

Being a waitress can be a tricky job, and I believe it takes a certain type of person to handle the stress. I love my job. Like, I genuinely enjoy being a waitress, running around like a crazy woman, and talking to all sorts of people that walk through those doors. Generally work puts me in a great mood, even on bad days, but there some things that drive me absolutely nuts.

1. When every customer asks "What beers do you have on draft?" and having to constantly reference the same list and name the 10+ options of beer... over and over again.

2. Constantly having to make children chocolate milk as if four cups isn't enough.

3. The 12-top that comes in, stays all night, then decides last minute they all want separate checks and they need the bill immediately, then get mad when it takes longer than 30 seconds to separate the $250+ tab.

4. Customers that clap/whistle for your attention.

I'm a human, sir, and yes I will grab you another beer.

5. When you're about to clock out and a table walks in.

6. Customers who don't understand how to appropriately tip.

Thank you for the $4 on your $55 meal, fam.

7. The little piece of your heart that breaks when you think about how much money you would have if you didn't have to tip out the bartender.

8. When the table is furious about the food coming out "late" after they insisted they want to take their time eating out and relax.

Ma'am, you ordered an appetizer, waited 35 minutes, then placed your food order... it's going to be minute.

9. The customer at a table that wants to explain their entire life story to you while there are five other tables that still need to be greeted.

10. Getting blamed for food not looking/tasting good even though we all know I didn't prepare the food.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
