I was browsing through Powerbooks about a weeks ago when this book caught my attention. I wasn’t planning on buying anything then but when I leafed through the pages of Waiter Rant, I found myself amused and horrified in equal amounts. It was funny and painful, amusing and disgusting, and everything else in between. Being someone who never went into the dining business (aside from eating out at a restaurant) this opened my eyes to what is happening in the industry. Now I’m more aware of my actions when eating out. I consciously go out of my way to be more polite when dealing with the waiters and the hostesses. After all, they’re just trying to make a living. Just like you and me.
