Jokes Only Service Industry Workers Understand

Servers, line cooks, sous chefs, bartenders, expos, and food runners: these funny restaurant jokes are for you. Whether it’s a customer that walks in with a party of three 15 minutes before closing time, to a person complaining that you got their order wrong despite the fact that you wrote it down verbatim, working in the service industry seems like an endless barrage of reasons to lose faith in humanity. Cheer up, though – your shift will soon be over, your side work will soon be completed, and, if the service industry gods are good, your last customer will tip at least 18 percent.

Keep your kids under control, people

Gross but true

MIDDLE OF THE DINNER RUSH

C’mon

What I actually do

Every. Single. Time.

Every Saturday morning like

“What’s your cheapest drink?”

When servers and cooks argue

Every single one of us

Check yourself

Sh*t just got real

That’d be great

I’ll stop you right there –

When you get called to run food

If only…

Sometimes you force us to lie…

FOOD RUNNERS
