Publisher's Summary

Millions of people have, at some point in their lives, waited tables. Some did it only in college or got out by sheer determination, good luck...or suicide. Others took it on as permanent employment. And many remain haunted by nightmare scenarios where they are the sole servers in restaurants packed with complaining patrons.
For all those disenchanted current and former food service employees, Darron Cardosa has your back. His career began at a Texas steakhouse in 1984, and since 2008 he's vented his frustrations on the popular blog The Bitchy Waiter.
A snarky mix of David Sedaris, Anthony Bourdain, Erma Bombeck, and Mo Rocca, Cardosa distills 30 years of food service into dark, funny tales - about crazy customers, out-of-control egos, and what really goes on in that fancy restaurant - that anyone who worked in the industry will recognize and relate to.

Best Book Ever!!

Such a funny book! On top of the comedic stories, there are several heartwarming moments. This is the first book I have ever read that has made me literally laugh out loud. This is a must-read for anyone involved in the food service industry and an eye opener for anyone who isn't.

Laugh Out Loud Funny

I eat in a restaurant once or twice a week. Sometimes when I am waiting for my meal to arrive I watch the servers doing their work. Even in a moderately priced chain restaurant, it takes skill to do the job well. One reason I read this book was to to get more insight into what it's like to do this job.

Darren Cardosa finds humor in customer behavior that made me cringe. It is easy to understand why he is sometimes "bitchy." His narration is superb.

I found this book to be entertaining, informative and very funny. A perfect "summer read."
