I am the leader of the server revolution! Taking the power away from the customers and putting it back in the hands of the bartenders and servers. Yelp off!!!

Yelp Elite Kicked to the Yale Curb

Yelp has finally turned on itself and done some good.  An elite Yelp user has finally gotten a dose of karma, Yelp karma. And now, she’s living amongst the unemployed with nothing to do with her time but read about herself on the internet.

June Chu, a (former) dean of Pierson College at Yale University, has resigned from her elitist Dean/ Yelp position due to inflammatory and flat out mean remarks that she posted on her now deleted Yelp account. Another one bites the dust! 

June used words like, “white trash,” and “uneducated morons,” to describe establishments and workers in her many disparaging rants on Yelp. One of the places that got her grandma panties in a bunch was a movie theater that didn’t have a separate line for “just tickets.” Well Jesus, Mary, and Joseph,  June had to share a line with people who were buying popcorn and sodas?!? Save us and be healed! Going on to say that she didn’t get good service at the theater. Hey June… It’s a fucking movie theater! You ask for what you want, you pay them, and they give it to you. And what the hell are you doing buying tickets at the theater anyways? What is this 2010? Try the Internet.

June held a university position that helps out the student body, and is supposed to be a safe place for people to not be judged or scrutinized by the Dean or the staff.  However, June had a sense of entitlement that only is reserved for people who claim the worthy “elite Yelp” status.  She did what they all do which is to hide behind their keyboards and rip people and places apart all because they think that they are important.  Well June, you are important, but now you’re important AND unemployed.

A woman that claimed to love diversity, obviously didn’t love it as much as she thought that she did.  She tried to get off the hook by sending a blanket email apology to the student body, claiming her reviews were “insensitive,” and “wrong,” but one of her reviews clearly stated,

“Be kind my ass.  I pay for my ticket and decent customer service.  Decent.  I’m not asking for stellar.  I’m asking for a bare minimum of competence.”

And it’s not like this happened one time.  June wrote many reviews expressing her disgust with society.  She knew what she was doing, and she knew she was presenting herself as a fraud to her student body.

“Remember: I am Asian,” Chu says in a post criticizing a Mochi restaurant. “I know Mochi. These are not good and overpriced… I guess if you were a white person who has no clue what Mochi is, this would be fine for you.”

I wanted to see if June was correct about Asians knowing Mochi, so I went and asked 3 of my customers the other night who happened to be Asian.  One out of the three knew about Mochi, let alone “good Mochi.”  And according to Asians who know math, that’s only a third of Asians I polled.

More punishments need to happen to people on Yelp like June.  You can’t just be an internet coward and not expect there to be any repercussions.  The university only put June on leave at first, but then she eventually resigned in June.  I want to gave all the credit to the Yale Daily News for bringing this woman to justice.  Journalism done right.

Well June, what the hell are you going to do now?  You’ve deleted your Yelp account, meaning your nights are free from writing anymore mean things about people you don’t know, and your career is, (ahem), on stand-by.  But I just saw on Craigslist New Haven that a particular movie theater is hiring.  I think it’s right up your alley.  Just remember when a customer says “easy butter” that means don’t put too much butter on their popcorn.  We wouldn’t want anybody to write a scathing review about you on Yelp.

Until next time… Server’s don’t pay their rent with compliments.
“Bitter.  Party of 1?  Your table is ready.”

The Union is Coming! 

“The union is coming!  The union is coming!” shouted a short woman, wearing a funny hat, riding a horse through the halls of my work.  Okay, not on a horse, but it’s happening at my work.  17 years of working in the service industry, I’ve never worked for a union, and now, because of some… Continue Reading

Customers Steal Because They Can

Customers Steal Because They Can

“The customer is always right,” is an outdated phrase that continues to plague restaurants today because some people still feel like they’re special.  Now this entitlement gives these same people the right to steal from restaurants.  I have seen people steal salt n pepper shakers, sugar caddies, bar shakers, espresso spoons, and even have had… Continue Reading

Phone Charging Not Part of My Job

The next time you’re out at a restaurant, bring 800 dollars with you.  And when you are sat, IMMEDIATELY hand the money over to your server, and then continue on with your meal like as if you had forgotten about the money.  This is exactly what happens every time a customer asks their server to… Continue Reading

Customers are the Celebrities of the Restaurant World

Customers are SO important these days!  They only have a set amount of time to be seated, have drinks, order and eat their meals, and then, INSTANTLY, the must be on their important way.  And it doesn’t just happen to me, this tweet was from another “bittered” service industry worker, Bitter Waiter. MAY I HAVE… Continue Reading

7 Annoying Server Habits

I’ve  turned the tables writing this post.  The 7 things that servers do that annoy customers, and your fellow servers.  It’s definitely more than 7, but if I wrote more than that, I would change the premise of this blog.  First of all, I have been guilty of many, if not all, of these habits.… Continue Reading

Dear Birthday Girl Who Made a Reservation for 10ppl

Who are these people?  To be clear, a reservation means that you are “reserving” a table in a restaurant, and are expected to honor that reservation by showing up.  It would be easier to figure out Trump’s healthcare plan, than to understand why people make reservations for large parties, and then don’t show up. Last… Continue Reading

Yelp and You Shall Receive

“Another one bites on Yelp!” is how the updated version of Queen’s song should be nowadays.  If anybody wants anything for free in a restaurant, all you have to simply do is complain and (PRESTO!) you will get free stuff.  Or maybe even a free meal entirely. Case-in-point, Jessica L. on Yelp.  Jessica is an… Continue Reading

What Should I Have?

When did going to a restaurant become so complicated?  You make a reservation, you show up, you get sat at a table, and then have a good time.  Unfortunately that is no longer the case.  Customers have become as complicated and as crazy as the two nominees for President.  Sometimes I wonder if some people… Continue Reading

Server Tweets

Here’s proof that I’m not the only one who feels the same way about customers, co-workers, and the service industry.  I give you, SERVER TWEETS !!! Here’s a great example of get a fork-ful of food and then being expected to sell 5 specials. When the chef sends out a dish to taste but it… Continue Reading
