TheUninspiredArtist . 9y Had an older single guy getting ready to leave so I go up and and cash him out. Не was a nice guy and didn't give me any problems but as soon as I got back to his table, he was sitting on the edge of his seat, legs spread with his balls hanging out of his shorts all over the booth, all with a toothy grin while saying it feels good to finally air out.

I showed up to their table, completely stunned, and the wife saw me then quickly covered her face in embarrassment. After a couple moments of awkward silence, she just looked at me and said That was exactly what you think it was.

Mediocre-raptor . 9y I used to work at a chain restaurant in my province that was marketing towards being very family friendly; but we were located near the local University, so we got a lot of students from there as well. .

joelomite11 . 9y At a restaurant where I used to bartend we had jokester manager. One day she said to a server; Sarah, I just sat you a table, you'll need a high-chair. So sarah goes to greet her table with a high-chair assuming her party has a small child.

Two girls in their early 20's were hanging out ordering margaritas pretty early in the day in the middle of the week. I walk up just in time to realize they are discussing the fact that one of the girls is pregnant.
