Playing The Race Card
Playing The Race Card
One thing I really can’t stand when eating out is piss poor service. I hate it even more when you can see it is a form of blatant prejudice. Now prejudice/racism exist in all forms, now the server could have been thinking,
these black folks will no tip well.
(I’m not mocking her, she actually spoke that way)
But to actually serve us with a lack of enthusiasm and not just my table, no-no no…. but the entire row of black folks. Now I understand the sidity acting, sophistiratchets were annoying with their “ooooooh the cucumber alkalies my water (really it does what to your water?) but I won’t drink this with the lip stick on the glass, can you change this, 3 times really? smh sophistiratchets smh. Sitting all high horsy and pretentious and just ghetto as ras!! but I stayeth from de point.
Anyway, so this went on for some time, extra orders seem to annoy this woman, she’d need reminding, which didn’t seem to mean much, she’s just say, it’s coming up. Now understand something folks, usually I don’t tip, I really don’t care about the judgements, I’ve had bullshit jobs, save me the sob stories of what they make, no one thinks of what migrant workers make, picking those damn oranges all day in that Florida sunshine, as they swig their morning OJ. No one thinks of the gawd damn chicken feather pluckers, on their feet for 14hrs when you’re diving in your 10 piece boxes, fuck outta here with these serves make less than minimum wage. At this point I just look for evidence of food tampering on my plate, but what happened next sealed the deal for me that is was surely a black thing. The two sophistiratchets leave and a white couple enter, this server acted like she was a lottery winner, whole facial expressions change, her thick Asian accent suddenly more clear, I glance over at the other negro table, they’re looking at the parade/hype party like ahhhhh we get it now.
Long story short, I’ll never be going back to Top Spice Thai & Malaysian Cuisine Restaurant My money, even if technically, I didn’t pay for the meal, is just as good as anyone, of any color. I don’t expect servers to kiss my black ass, go over the top, to work the tip, like most do, but I do expect professionalism, OK I do get it, it’s a shitty job, but do it well. And if you can only be super enthusiastic for white people because they tip more (total assumption) then you don’t really need or deserve my patronage.
