10 Things That Will Definitely Happen in a Restaurant on Valentine’s Day

As Valentine’s Day approaches, we all must prepare ourselves for one of the busiest nights of the year. And seeing that it’s on a Sunday means a lot of you will be busting your ass with a busy brunch and then a busy dinner. Be strong. But you know these things are totally gonna happen at a restaurant near you.

  2. Someone will show up forgetting it’s Valentine’s Day and get pissed off that it’s crowded. 2
  3. A lady will order her regular menu item only to learn that it’s prix fixe only and either not available or twice as much as usual. 3
  4. A waitress will give Hershey’s kisses to all of our tables hoping it will increase her tip average.4
  5. Someone will break up with someone because they figure if you’re going to crush someone’s soul, you may as well crush it completely and do it on Valentine’s Day. 5
  6. A girl will have to pretend that she loves her gift of a teddy bear, chocolate candy or balloons. 6
  7. Someone will show up at the restaurant alone, forgetting it’s Valentine’s Day and get trashed because the closest thing they have to a long term relationship is their affair with tequila.7
  8. Something will be served in the shape of heart because nothing says true love like a heart-shaped pizza.8
  9. Someone will try to convince someone else that fake, plastic roses that light up are romantic.9
  10. A server will make bank and walk out of the restaurant with a shit ton of money. 10

  1. Dr. Mack helped me to get back my ex boyfriend. if you need any relationship help, dr_mack is the right person to contact for help dr_mack@ yahoo. com..

  2. I always laugh when someone calls for a reservation a few days before this shit show holiday and requests a quiet, private or romantic table, hahahaha !!!! Like any other restaurant, we cram as many two tops as possible into whatever space they may fit, hey, we can get three more tables in the restrooms and it’s not that cold, two more in the coat check closet.

  3. I agree with all but # 10. I feel like most of the people that go out on valentine’s day and new years eve only go out because it’s the thing to do. ( Not your everyday customer ) These people are usually cheap when it comes to the tip. So you bust your ass for average to below average tips .

I want two things: a shift drink and your email address!

Someday, if I ever get my act together, I might send out a weekly newsletter about the wonderful goings on of the restaurant industry. Or maybe I won't.
