    Who’s Teaching Who Manners

    | Minnesota, USA | Family & Kids, Food & Drink

    (I bus tables at a buffet-style restaurant. I approach a table of two middle-aged women and a girl who looks to be around 8 years old.)

    Me: “Hello! I’ll be your service assistant today. How is everything tasting so far?”

    Woman: “Fine.”

    (I walk away and let them continue eating. I return about 10 minutes later.)

    Me: “Why don’t I get these empty plates out of your way?”

    (Both women completely ignore me. I take the plates and start to walk away.)

    Girl: *yells to her mom* “Shouldn’t you say ‘thank you’?!”

    (I start giggling and duck into the bus station. Later, I return to the table to pickup the next round of plates.)

    Both women: *beaming* “Thank you!”

    (The majority of people do not tip us. They end up leaving me $5.)
