Sunday Sinners

Before I even begin, I am issuing a warning. I am going to bitch, whine, moan and complain. I am not up for trying to educate or humor. I am pissed and going let go, because this is my platform.

Remember, I warned you before you began reading.

I am sick of working Sunday mornings. They are literally the worst day of the week to work. Nothing but parities and grouchy ass people. They are also the worst tip days.

I do believe, and I am not attacking religion here, that church going Bible thumping people are the worst to wait on. They look at you and ask, why aren't you in church? DO you believe in God? Of course I do. Every Sunday, every server is looked at like we are the anti-Christ because we aren't in church. And all I want to do is ask them, who the hell would be here to wait on you if I had been in church? I would love to go and spend time at church with my children. But every Sunday, I send my kids off on the church bus and I go to work. And every Sunday the restaurant fills up with grouchy people, shitty tippers and cheap assholes.

At least half of the tables this morning were filled with grouchy people. Seriously. I mean, if you don't like getting up on your day off and it makes you rude to those you encounter. Sleep in dammit and wake up in a better mood. Keep your pamphlets, fliers or whatever you call them. We don't want them. I believe in God and a higher power. But he doesn't pay my bills or feed my children. I do.

No matter how bad my day is, (and believe me, I have some bad ones. Read my real life blog for proof.) and no matter who I meant. I put a smile on my face. Whether it is at work or not. I can be a full frontal bitch, not gonna lie. But rude people annoy me.

Ugh! Okay, I think I have bitched enough. Why don't you tell me some of your rude people experiences that set you off in a bad way? and how you dealt with them.

I live in Toronto and work in the media... I'm always around rude people who flip my switch one way or another...

I don't know whether to laugh or cry over this one.

That "Christians" are so un-Christ-like or that you have to deal with them.

You just rock in my book.

I am a waitress and on e of my two days off on a permanent schedule is Sunday. You are so right. The church crowd is the worst. My favorite (when I did work Sundays) was this group of pentecostals (You know the ones with women that can't cut their hair, wear makeup or pants) They would come in 20 deep. THeir kids were horrible and they were all so rude and cheap. One day this lady ordered edamame and another lady said "last time they charged us $5 for that." The price never changes and it's never been $5. There are rare exceptions to the rule, but the Sunday crowd is the worst!
