not seeing it
it's either from shit that happened before the video.....
or she hates "the sound of his voice"
Right. I'm saying we don't know if they've been waiting 2 minutes or 20 minutes.
The case swings on the backstory to the clip.
Since she's the manager, I'm calling her insistence that they're not understaffed total bullshit.
But I can't blame her for being pissed about being filmed.
Odds that she hates him because she's a conservative, religious Latina and he's gay are above 0%.
Also, I'm with Lance McCoolfag at the end. I would not eat or drink anything that came out of that kitchen after that.
I'm not claiming the table is snot-free, by the way.
Between everyone at the table telling what to/not to do before she arrives, the fact that they're filming it in the first place, and the fact that this apparently happens to him everywhere, I made the assumption it had a lot to do with him.
If every place you go smells like shit...
...check your shoe. Yeah.
My 5 stars were for "Is it a rabbit or is it a duck?" I guess.
On the face of it, I'm saying 80% bitch waitress, 20% annoying table.
The friends don't really say anything up front that leads me to believe they're being assholes or trying to be. So what if they're talking about it? They could be talking about it for very good reasons, or because they wind each other up into being snarky. We don't know. It's hard to tell from what they actually say in the beginning.
And however dramatic he is about how this always happens to him afterward, he didn't say anything rude, and he didn't say it in a particularly rude tone. Maybe he's a little brusque (or the femmy version of brusque which is sass) because no one has come to their table for 20 minutes, yet they see her standing around doing nothing.
Maybe this "always happens to him" because that's how he views it psychologically, or because they don't like homos in whatever shitty county this is in, so it does always happen to him.
We have no idea what happened before or how long they've been waiting, or what the waitress was like before. The way she reacts to him is a few steps beyond what he said to her.
Servers/restaurants with shitty service are usually positive that they're right and you're wrong.
It's usually not because they're genuinely swamped, because places with good service that know they're swamped act differently.
It looks like they ordered maybe one or two baskets of something to share among the lot of them that are now finished, and a bunch of drinks that they want refilled. They're also blatantly filming this woman who's trying to serve them. They're probably just being pains in the ass.
Yeah, he's an unlikable faggot, and from the video it looks like they were doing the "Lets all order a glass of water, and a five dollar entree to share, and share the complimentary bread to fill up on" thing, so I can see why their table wouldn't be a priority, but I'm not seeing where he's being too unreasonable or rude to her prior to her saying "You don't have to be so rude!", and it's pretty unprofessional to tell that to a paying customer who's demanding basic service.
I can relate to both sides actually, I've paid good money and gotten shitty service and no one cared, and I've waited on people at jobs I've worked who feel the need to be way too agitated over nothing and go full force with their undue frustration at you.
Videos like this make me thankful that I've never waited tables and hope that I never do.
i think it's time we talk about black homophobia.

The server/manager was a little short with the customer. It's obvious the place is busy and she's being pulled in different direction, but that's the business she's in. She should learn to cope with it and not take it out on the patrons.
However, the customer strikes me as one of those, "demanding" sort of patrons. "Hey, I'm paying ten bucks to eat here. You should be licking my boots." He's already complaining about the service and wanting to talk to the manager at the start of the video. Based on the comments his friends are making, it's clear he acts like this quite often. Although he does tack "please" onto the end, it doesn't really mask the fact he's issuing orders. He's also very quick to say "Send the manager over, honey." at the slightest provocation.
Does she have some personal bias against people like him and that maybe affected her attitude? Very likely. Did he pick up on that and maybe that's why he had attitude towards her? Equally likely.
It's just a collision of two unpleasant people.
Neither of them are exemplary in their behavior, but it's a lot easier to be a customer than a server, so I am more forgiving of servers as a rule.
And whatshisname would probably find this happened a lot less often to him if he were capable of saying things like, "whenever you get a chance, I know you're really busy today". Just communicate a smidgen of empathy.
Sure. I'm polite to servers, but seeing that I've done tougher work for less pay, my empathy for servers is at human-basic levels. If we've been waiting on/to/for _____ for a long time, I'm not going to play the violin for them when I try to get their attention. "I know you're really busy today" is a fucking asinine bleeding-heart thing to say to a server you don't know.
It's such a piece-of-shit self-righteous job the way some people work it. It's because tipping fucking corrupts people. FACT

Weirdly, a recent study found brusque (but not outright rude) servers often get bigger tips than pleasant ones.
I like restaurants where there's self serve water at a table someplace. I much prefer to get up and get the water myself. Also these people are unpleasant.

Annoying Table vs Understaffed & Apathetic
He's not being the _most_ rude, but he is telling her to do her job. I'm of the opinion that if you get poor service at a restaurant, just never go there again. But regardless of how poor the service is, you don't get the right to treat the person serving you like shit. Anyone that does that is just a colossal asshole. Literally the smallest bit of power over someone else immediately getting abused reflects so enormously poorly on people. The idea that you not being treated the way you want to be treated is some wrong that has to be righted by judging someone else and/or getting up in their shit reflects pretty poorly on the person as well. If you have some problem, check yourself first. You're supposed to be a fucking adult.
What is a gaggle of fag hags called? A flock? A murder?

What is it about this video? Someone records a mildly bitchy, barely offensive exchange, puts it on youtube, and it gets a half million views, and here we are talking about it.
The only thing about this where anybody did anything that strikes me as truly objectionable is that someone uploaded this thing. WHY?
