Dear readers,

Today is international waitstaff day! We know that restaurants haven’t been in business lately, but as they gradually re-open, we’d like to continue our coverage of workers that put up with the worst of us while behaving like the best of us. We’ve covered grocery store workers, postal workers, healthcare workers, truck drivers , teachers , police and the emergency services already!

When the world calms down and you make your way back to a restaurant, remember these 23 stories we’ve compiled, and remember what they have to put up with!
