2005 MOVIE: "Waiting"

Big N Fat | Feb 26, 2008 12:21 PM

I am more than certain that this comedy has been discussed in the past however, a friend of mine loaned the DVD to me so I watched it for the first time a couple weeks ago and will probably never be the same way again when I dine out. For those who have not seen it, the movie is set in a fictitious restaurant which looks an awful lot like a TGIF decor. It has lots of gross comedy dealing with male and female anatomy, spitting on food, etc. also, the "going ons" of running a restaurant. Most of it deals with the boredoms and and horrible customers (and staff) which can plague the business. In a nut shell, you make the waiter or cook staff upset, then don't even try to imagine what nasty stuff they are doing to your food. Yikes! Although a gross out comedy, it is unfortunately a very real event happening in some public eating establishments. In a way, this movie might be good for people (not too young) to watch if not for anything else, as an eye opener. Remember, try to always be polite. If you have to send your food back because it was not prepared properly, do it in a nice manner without being demeaning to the staff because, you just never know. Also, try to leave a decent tip when possible. Remember, the faults for bad service may or may not be the faults of the waiters, cooks or management. When all else fails, word of mouth can be brutal on a business (i.e., CHOWHOUND) which doesn't make any attempts to provide good service, good food, clean restaurant and bathrooms.
