@SnarkyPlatypus I believe that yesterday someone suggested hanging them. And it wasn’t me.

via Janetter for Mac

Almost collided with the waiter as I came from the bathroom. She apologised in a cheery sing-song voice. Seemed to be… disconnected.

via Janetter for Mac

By my count that was at least 40 mins with an empty glass, perhaps even 50 mins. Cafe seats 60. One waiter / barista, I think 2 in kitchen.

via Janetter for Mac

OH, loudly, from the kitchen: “Well that’s not my problem, I’m leaving at 3.30.”

via Janetter for Mac

STOP THE STOPWATCH I HAVE BEEN SERVED WELL MY ORDER FOR ANOTHER BEER HAS BEEN TAKEN SO THAT IS HALF THE BATTLE.

via Janetter for Mac

Thanks, @tredlgt @timClicks. I can’t see the back room properly. Might be only 40 seats. But this waiter is by herself, making coffee too.

via Janetter for Mac

Can anyone who’s run a cafe tell me how many waiters you’d have for, say, 50 seats at lunchtime. Full dining menu, licensed.

via Janetter for Mac

@snerdish @whiteswine @jeamland @S7U @staticsan @ret56fe All excellent suggestions. A shame I don’t have the pistol.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to snerdish

I’ve pretty much lost all desire for another ale now. I just want to find out how long it’ll actually take to be served.

via Janetter for Mac

Hah! She needed specials-list-on-stand thing, just whipped it off another patron’s table without a word let alone an “excuse me”.

via Janetter for Mac

I grant you that the place is reasonably full, but being understaffed or incompetently staffed to deal with that is still a failure.

via Janetter for Mac

For the last 10 mins I’ve been turned sideways in my seat, watching the waiter. She’s come twice more to next table. Complete tunnel vision.

via Janetter for Mac

The kangaroo was adequate, @RatbagsDotCom, but nothing to crow about. Overall fairly ordinary.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RatbagsDotCom

That’s twenty minutes with an empty glass, minimum. Fear now, I shall certainly name names.

via Janetter for Mac

A chap with a trolley has just arrived delivering, inter alia, two cartons of pre-made fries, wheeling them through the cafe to the kitchen.

via Janetter for Mac

The waiter has been to tables 5 times, 3 of them right next to mine. Not once has she cast gaze around the room, noticed my raised hand.

via Janetter for Mac

It appears that this waiter has both tunnel vision and an inability to cope with events at more than one table at a time.
