We already dug up the secrets of America's servers, but what dark thoughts are brewing inside the mind of that lady who took your reservation? To find out, we turned yet again to the anonymous app Whisper for some host and hostess confessions. Based on these revelations, you should probably stop being a jerk to the person behind the podium. And bring bribes, just in case. Here's what they had to share:

I'm a hostess and I secretly take tips from the waiters that are rude to me
 
I'm a hostess at a restaurant and my favorite thing to do is ask 14/15/16/17 year old guys who are on dates if they  would like a kids menu.

I work at a restaurant as a hostess. Whenever people are rude I make it a point to sit them by screaming children.
 
I work as a host at one of my local restaurants, and for some reason I take it personally when people look at the menu and decide they want to eat somewhere else.
 
I'm a hostess at a restaurant and when some yells at me about going slow I seat them in the section with the new girl who forgets everything.
 
I'm a host at a restaurant. I only give the nice people the booths.
 
I'm a hostess and whenever I seat a guy, I fantasize about them hitting on me or giving me their number
