There's a popular saying that how a person treats service employees will tell you everything you need to know about that person.

It's popular for a reason.

TikToker Lizzy Smith, or @c0_0l__ on the app, has been using the platform to discuss her experiences in the service industry. She recently started a series specifically of skits to demonstrate her greatest pet peeves and there have been some serious doozies.

There were customers who seemed to have forgotten what they ordered.

It's incredibly awkward to see a server standing there with hot plates, trying to figure out who ordered which meal at the table, but it must be so much more awkward for the server who is trying to do their job.

When they take FOREVER to claim the food, and just leave you standing there awkwardly. 🙄💩What are your serving pet peeves? #serverlife #work

Then there were the snappers and whistlers.

Servers are not animals and can't be called like them, either.

#greenscreen The ‘ole run around— bonus points if they’re rude, two bonus points if they repeat what you just said you’d do as a demand! #serverlife

Of course, there always has to be one group that argues about who will pay.

Though it's a kind gesture to want to pay for your loved ones while at the restaurant, that's a decision that should be made well before the server comes to pick up the check.

#greenscreen When they hold you hostage while they go to ✨war✨over who pays, leaving you like 😐👀. Does this bother y’all, or is it just me? Lol 😂

There's the one who will never be satisfied.

There are those who listen to the dinner options and those who don't.

#greenscreen ma’am, I DID say… never mind, it’s not worth it 🙄🥲 SERVERS, I wanna hear your craziest Karen stories! Drop a comment ❤️‍🩹 ⬇️ #server

There are those who shouldn't have bothered to go to a sit-down restaurant.

If you won't interact with the server, why are you sitting down at a restaurant that isn't self-serve?

@c0_0l__

#greenscreen when they just… completely ignore you? And look annoyed that you talked to them in the first place?? That’s how this WORKS, babe! #server

And of course, there are the jokesters.

There is just too much going on in the restaurant with the server's entire section of tables for this to be funny.

@c0_0l__

please, sir, you’re holding me hostage. Just let me run your card 😣 #serverlife #serverproblems #server #restaurant #humor #relatable #work #petpeeve

Some fellow TikTokers were furious about whistles and finger snaps.

Others pointed out they would walk away from tables who made paying difficult.

Some also wanted to walk away with food orders when their tables ignored them.

Though people go to restaurants for a nice meal, a quiet evening out, or a way to blow off steam after a long week, they should still try to remember the people serving them are people, too.
