Social Dilemma - What Do You Do When a Waitress Holds You Hostage?

posted by Jaime Roberts -

Today's social dilemma happened to me yesterday.  After I left work, I went over to my mom's and picked her up and took her out to lunch.  We went to a place near her house over in the Greenbush area.  It's a place we've been to many times, and we usually really enjoy it.  Yesterday was a bit different.  Here's what happened.  We sat down, the hostess was sweet and friendly, so far all good.   Then the waitress came over and took our drink order.  When she came back with the drinks, we told her we were ready to order.  She said she would be right back to take the order.   Cut to 15 minutes later and she still hasn't returned.  Now don't get me wrong, I love spending time with my mom, but she was hungry and so was I, so we were getting ticked off.   Finally, I went to the hostess and asked where our waitress was and she told me that a big party had come in and she was dealing with them.   Okay.  So I sat back down and still waited another seven minutes or so.   The waitress then came over all rushed, no apology at all, and said what would you like  So we order.  Okay all good, the food comes, it's good and then it's time for the check.   How long do you think you would have waited for that?  It was at least another 20 minutes, and yes another trip to the hostess stand until finally she brought it over.   I felt like we were being held hostage by the waitress.  What would you have done in this situation.  I felt like I was doing everything I could.  I was complaining to the hostess, I was trying to be patient, but the service was horrible.   Has this ever happened to you? Have you been held hostage by the waitress or waiter?   Did you tip them anything? What did you do?   Please let me know on the 98-3 TRY Facebook page.
