We partnered with 5Why on our previous campaign, Humans of Hospo, featuring Kylie Javier Ashton (Momofuku Seiōbo), Jared Merlino (Lobo, Kittyhawk, Big Poppa’s), and Brooke Adey (Chiswick, Bea). While 5Why continues to share content on everything from travel and entertainment to wellbeing and health, read on to get insight into the hospitality industry: The good, the bad, and the relatable.

Maybe you’re a waiter who can relate? Maybe you’ve heard all of these lines before (and then some)? Read on to discover a compilation and prepare yourself for some of these gems if you plan on beginning a new position as a waiter.
Here’s a compilation of some things a waiter never wants to hear:
“I’ll have the steak well done, but on the rarer side” to which the internal answer might be Please utter a more confusing sentence, I dare you.

“What’s your recommendation? … Oh no I don’t like that” Oh, ok, sorry for not being overly familiar with your taste buds.
Hopefully you haven't heard too many of these one-liners if you've worked as a waiter or currently have a waitstaff role. If you have, however, take comfort in knowing that you are not alone; we guarantee that every other waiter has had similar instances (or worse).
