Serving theist tables at a restaurant...
So I don't know if anyone else has serving experience. I was a waiter at Outback during college and off and on since then since they don't drug test and it's almost the easiest job on the planet (next to pornstars and beer quality samplers). But I constantly got tables on Sundays where the people wouldn't give you their order until you talked with them about "the big question." They would just stare at you all nonchalantly and say, "Do you know where you're going when you die?" And then with your shitty tip (guess they gave it all to Jesus) they would include a prayer card or some guilt trip pamphlet hinting about your soul burning in hell. Then the people would wait in the lobby for a few minutes "just in case you wanted to come to them and have your soul saved."

Not only is this shit rude and presumptuous, it's arrogant as all hell. They truly believe that they have some special powers that makes them better than you, and they can "save you" because they believe themselves to be best friends with Jesus, who has superpowers. And the even shittier thing is, you can't be honest with them. I'm an outspoken atheist who loves to debate, but I can't say anything because I don't want to ruin my already shitty tip and/or get fired. So I just have to smile a lot and nod my head like a twatface.

"Ain't got no last words to say, yellow streak right up my spine. The gun in my mouth was real and the taste blew my mind."

"Yes I know where I am going to go when I die. Would you like the raw chicken breast or the undercooked pork?"

Fair play to you Buddy! I would have had the sack by now!
If someone asked me where I was going after I die, I would probably tell them "In a hole in the ground or blown away with the wind!" I'd tell them to keep their opinions and beliefs to themselves and go and preach in a bloody church- Failing that get a copy of Hitchens' book "God is Not Great - How religion poisons everything" and slam the thing on their table, remarking; "Have a nice day!"

I'm sorry, ma'am but I am allergic to that question. You wouldn't want me to sneeze in your food, now, would you?

Oh, no Hallucinations 4:11 says the 'gilded sheep should be stewed in rat blood' but Morons 5:16 contradicts it. (Chas)

I would never shake a baby unless the recipe requires it.

RE: Serving theist tables at a restaurant...
If I was in your shoes I dont think I could resist saying.....

Customer: Do you know where your going when you die???

Me: Yeah the crematorium.......I think burial is a waste of time.

Customer: Do you believe in god???

Me: Yeah I have my own personal relationship with jesus.

Customer: Brilliant............

Me: Yeah he dont mess with me and I dont mess with him.

(goes and has a break for 20 minute before handing in order) Tongue

Your right they are a presumptious lot..........not long ago I decided to try and look for some charity work caus then I had a lot of spare time on my hands. I went to some charity shops in my town and when I was walking past the cathedral I thought I could pop in and see if they have any.. The cathedral was shut but next door is a bible shop/cafe owned by the church. They had a little poster asking for volunteers so I thought.....brill. Now I can dress very very smart when I want too but that day I was wearing my normal casual clothes which were sportswear.....addidas tracky bottoms, polo shirt, Nike trainers.........I still looked smart though and am very polite to people/dont act "chavish"

When I walked in I could sense a bit of an atmosphere, normally when I look at people I smile.....and people normally smile back....but of the few people I made eye contact with as I walked through to the counter none of them smiled. I went to the counter and there was this snooty woman behind the counter who was looking at me as if to say "what the fuck are you doing in here". I asked about the charity work and the woman said I had to leave my number and they will ring me back. So I did and thanked her politley and walked out....I looked back into the window as I walked out and stopped when I saw her screw up my piece of paper and chuck it in the bin.....she then looked up and stared me straight in the eye for about 3 seconds. The bitch then just turned away with no shame or nothing. Normally I would of gone in and asked WTF but that day I just walked off shaking my head.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

-Bemore.

As a Christian, I find that behavior hard to believe. Not because I don't believe you; I'm just agast that people... it doesn't even matter what you believe... that any human would be that rude and pompous to another person.

I don't know... maybe I was raised differently.

RE: Serving theist tables at a restaurant...
Yeah I volunteered at an MCC clothing store when I was 14 for work experience. For those that don't know MCC stores are Mennonite value villages.
The experience sucked. There was only one lady who wasn't constantly rude to me. She was my favorite. I think she felt bad for me. She got me coffee everyday. I don't think she was genuinely Mennonite either.
The others all gave me the dirtiest looks and never said thank you or smiled at me. Every morning they held a prayer circle and even though I didn't want to be rude I didn't feel right doing it. Instill stood in the circle Nd held hands but I didnt say anything. They noticed and would ask me about my religion all the time. I wasn't religious then but i also wasn't anything opposed yet either. I was indifferent.
When I left it was because I couldn't take it anymore. M last day only the one lady said thank you and wished me well. The others all warned me about hell.

Reminds me of a joke:

What goes "clip-clop, clip-clop, clip-clop, clip-clop, BANG! BANG!,clip-clop, clip-clop, ..."?

RE: Serving theist tables at a restaurant...
Damn Buddy , that sucks, a lot.

Not sure how it works in the us , but i sort of lived of my parents backs like a parasite until last year when i found a job (about 1 year out of college , studying on my own , but still)

Kind of sucks to be placed in that situation. It's an abuse of authority in my point of view , you are privileged to be a customer , and you take advantage of an employee who can;t do anything but nod and agree. Seriously , that's like kicking a puppy with a broken leg.

My experience was more reversed , must be a European thing. I get waiters and cooks throw my food at me like I'm a target for rock throwing or something.

But you know what Buddy , now you can drive a tank over them. You MAY NOT , but you CAN :-)

Atheism is a religion like OFF is a TV channel !!!

Proud of my genetic relatives Big Grin
