There is a restaurant where staff are paid to be rude to you

Ask us about US diners and we’ll give you three observations: ‘truck drivers wearing cowboy hats’, ‘limitless refills of coffee’ and ‘abnormally cheerful servers'.

Clichés they may well be, but if one of these rings true more than any, it’s that the workers in the US food service are some of the nicest you’ll find anywhere in the world. No doubt the outrageous tipping percentage plays some part in this.

But now a video has now gone viral appearing to highlight exactly the opposite behaviour. 

“You know what, grandpa? If I was nice to you I’d get canned,” says the brusque waitress caught on camera bearing a table full of visiting customers. “If you want good service, you go somewhere else. I know Hooters is probably more your speed but you came here on purpose.”

She’s right - Ed Debevic’s actually prides itself on discourteous servers, and boy do they get both barrels: dialling the snark up to 11, Cherry (or so it reads on her badge) tears the family’s orders apart, even going personal and referring to the eldest gentleman as ‘grandad’. Water? “Cheap” Ordering food off the kid’s menu? “Baby”. 

But then who needs to eat? This is a dollop of passive aggressiveness with a side of sass.

More like this and she’ll be manager soon.
