The big boys made me do it.....

stick a cork in it son.....

Pop quiz... (It's multi choice so don't fret)

What do you do when you make a mistake?

Do you...

A. Take responsibility

or

B. Blame the waiter

Well if you are a professional footballer (that's soccer to you Americans and GAA people) you obviously take option B - blame the waiter. Diego, I'm not sure if that's his first name or last name, who plays football for German side Werder Bremen decided to take option B when he was busted for drink driving after trying to out run the Polizei. When asked to explain himself he decided that it was all the waiters fault.

"...he kept filling my glass" said the Brazilian who went on to plead ignorance with regard to how much is too much.

"He kept filing my glass" eh? Grow the fudge up and stop getting on like a six year old. Waiters eh, the absolute bastards with their filling of glasses and doing what they are told. And there is no way to stop them either. You cant just ask them to stop either because waiters just love to work and once they have started they just won't stop. They are like machines, waiters, they really are. There's no off switch.

Oh wait that's not right, not right at all!

Diego, you sir are an ass. Take some responsibility for your own actions and don't try and blame others for your own short comings. I assume his soup will be spat it for many a year to come.

I had a punter arrive at the restaurant once who asked for a different waiter to serve him as he said I made him sick the last time because of the amount of food I forced him to eat. Forced? I mean really is there any chance?

22 People trying to get Manuel's attention:

Maxi Cane said...

I hate my bank because they kept giving me more and more credit.

Barstarrrds.

Tossbags like that annoy me.

Medbh said...

Damn Blogger!
I'm trying again.

Blaming the waiter for how drunk you get is like blaming a woman for making you have sex with her.

Some dudes are rendered powerless too easily.

Manuel said...

is this working yet? eh

Manuel said...

sweeet

maxi: ha! yes very good....

medbh: blogger can be a dick sometimes...some dudes are idiots..

Captain Smack said...

Yes, and it's because of waiters that so many people are overweight, too.

How do you sleep at night?

MJ said...

You need to keep a basket of stale bread rolls by the door to lob at their pointy little heads on their way out.

Waiter Extraordinaire said...

Yes and this Diego guy should give most of his million dollar salary back because he was forced to make too much money than what he is worth.

Manuel said...

the captain: very well on a bed of kittens.....but isn't it ridiculous....? I hate people

mj: or ninja stars, that would be cool...

steve: I know!

Conan Drumm said...

It's the "The butler done it" syndrome. Except the closest most folks get to having a butler is a waiter. So yeah, perfectly natural M'Lud, "The waiter done it."

Eh, the prosecution rests.

savannah said...

the world is filled with irresponsible and clueless men & women, sugar! sadly, far too many of them come to YOUR restaurant! xoxox

jen said...

Anything except actually taking responsibility, eh? What a poor excuse - both the actual line and the man himself.

Stephan said...

Don't feel too badly about it. If it had happened here in America, he would have taken the restaurant to court and been awarded a settlement for "emotional distress." And the waiter would probably end up in jail!

Native Minnow said...

The best way I can think of to get a waiter to stop filling your glass is to stop emptying it.

Native Minnow said...

But that's just me.

red leeroy said...

take a long look at yourself Manuel, a long look.

psychoknitter said...

Are you surprised? Everyone likes to blame their problems on others...that seems to be the name of the game these days. Why, I was just watching a BBC interview today that made me think of this very point...

TheChrisD said...

Now that is a true case story on those people who have no idea about restaurant etiquette.

He could have very easily not drank what was in his glass, ordered less wine (it was wine right?), or simply informed the waiter that he had had enough as he was driving.

Fucking moron...

Jenn and Den said...

Stephan is right. Here in the States the first reaction is to sue -- and then settle before people catch on to how ridiculous the lawsuit really is.

The idea is that if the suit gets anywhere, the outcome is really a crap shoot, and it's not worth taking chances in the eyes of the defendants.

Mr. DNA said...

It's not my fault! I'm a victim!

The mantra of the new society.

MikeTheWaiterDotCom said...

It's a crazy biz we are in ... personally, I am always thrilled when someone asks for a different table... it means i have really made an impression on them ... since they are likely to leave a crumby tip.... then bon voyage.... arrevaderchi .... hasta la bye-bye!

Boxer said...

Can I blame the waiter for the 10 pounds I gained during the Holidays? I mean, because I'm pretty sure they kept refilling my dessert tray.

asses.
