So, usually I'm pretty proud of what a good customer I am and how polite I am to servers and retail workers and whatnot, but tonight I was so frustrated that I can't speak up for myself! My husband and I went to this pizza place/bar for dinner, and had a terrible experience. One server took our order and then a different server came to take our order again, and she seemed really confused that the first guy had already done it. Not a big deal. But then 45 minutes later we still didn't have food (even our appetizers) and they hadn't come to refill our waters or anything. Then they bring us salads that we did not order instead of the yam fries that we did. They finally bring us the yam fries, then it was at least another twenty minutes of waiting for our pizzas. The entire time we ate, they completely ignored us despite DH trying repeatedly to flag them down for more water (we were kind of stuck in a corner). So we just watched as the waitress helped the tables behind us multiple times (and flirted with the loud, drunk party behind us A LOT), while ignoring us completely. When we finally did get someone to bring us water (by actually getting up and asking for it), she acted like it was a huge inconvenience. It was awful! Neither of us are the type to complain or ask to talk to a manager or anything, so now I'm just grumpy and wishing I had done something. Oh well. Does anyone else have this problem of being too polite to stand up for yourself, even when you should? I feel like generally my nice attitude get me further and waiters tend to treat us well, so I don't know how to handle it when they don't.
Ugh. Anyway, thanks for letting me vent. I'm annoyed, but at least I'm full!
