Emily Posted July 16, 2012 Share Posted July 16, 2012 I've recently been struggling with restaurant servers. Here's how the exchange goes: Me: I'd like a cup of decaf, please. Server: We don't have any made; I'll have to make some. Do you want me to do that? Me (feeling mind boggled): Well, yes. I don't understand why this is okay. I'm waiting for a server to tell me that she doesn't have my steak cooked and do I really want one cooked? I waited tables for several years at a nice restaurant (but equivalent to the caliber of restaurants where I've experienced this exchange) and that would *never* have been an okay thing to say to a patron. It does effect the tip I leave (and since I have waited tables, I generally try to tip generously and look past minor mistakes). Just a decaf frustration.
