Waiters Reveal the Craziest Things They've Experienced on the Job
Being a waiter lends itself to a little voyeurism. Unfortunately, lots of people consider their servers mindless drones, and don't realize that the person serving you dinner might also be a shameless eavesdropper. After you leave the restaurant, you might think your salacious gossip went unnoticed, but the waiter usually remembers. And thanks to a Reddit thread that's currently making the rounds -- in which waiters share some of the more alarming and downright scuzzy things they've overheard and encountered on the job -- it's evident that your private dinner conversations are part of the public domain.
Waiters might encounter some casual incest.
Infidelity always starts a fight.
Sometimes waiters get duped.
People don't shy away from discussing erectile dysfunction.
Sometimes, waiters inadvertently catch a cheating lover in the act.
You'll meet petulant children.
You'll catch wind of horribly screwed-up relationships:
You'll experience a crash-course in unhygienic parenting.
You'll hear about alternative versions of history.
There will be dirty old men.
In other words, being a waiter is tough on the ears and psyche, but it still might be better than working as a Disney World mascot.
