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).... 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.

Offer them a couple of Bloomin' Onions on the house. That shit's like riding the Express Train to meet their maker from a heart attack. Then at least you can smile knowing you've done some good in the world.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Would it have worked if you had said, "I'm sorry, but it's the policy of Outback that servers not discuss religion or politics with customers"?

Where did this take place, by the way? I can't imagine it happening in any of the places I've lived. But then again, I haven't had the misfortune of having to spend a lot of time in the Bible Belt.

Religious disputes are like arguments in a madhouse over which inmate really is Napoleon.

That is why this religion is so hard to deal with. People will do anything to spread it, even if it turns them into fools. Some would even be tortured or put to death for their faith. I would have when I was a Christian !

RE: Serving theist tables at a restaurant...
Im lucky in that i used to work in the kitchen, so i never had to deal with that kind of shit.

Have you tried giving them extracts from the gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster? (sauce be upon him)

If that doesnt stop their shit you can always try sptting in their food or hitting them with a bible

You may lose your job but you'll feel great doing it.

Behold the power of the force!

I guess I would just say that I don't discuss religion or politics in the workplace, or that my religious beliefs are private.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Gagla! Where the fuck have you been hiding you fat bastard? This forum lacks a certain shine without your presence.

And I don't ever hint to my tables that I believe or any shit like that. No job is worth selling my soul and denying who I am. If they're too invasive, I'll just claim I'm an atheist and have other servers drop off their food and drinks from then on.

Hey dude , good to be back. New job , work , laziness the usual. But i'm back and hopefully staying.

Like I said , it sucks to be in that position and taking advantage of employees like that makes them douches.
Good to hear you're holding your ground. Big Grin

RE: Serving theist tables at a restaurant...
I've waited tables and been a valet at a big hotel. Church tables are terrible tippers (if they tip at all). I don't remember ever getting hassled about my beliefs though, or receiving any cards or tracts, but I can certainly believe it.

One week at the hotel we had a big Christian convention of some sort - I don't remember what organization it was. That was the worst week I ever had at that hotel - we all worked our asses off because these people were so picky and needy about every little thing, and then none of them tipped worth a shit!

Our brains deceive us on a regular basis, so we have to find ways to fight back.

I agree with cufflink. Tell them "Discussion of religion is against store policy and my personal beliefs. Now, would you like to start off with a couple of beers or an appetizer?"
