Like to know if this person is just being really nice or if she's giving me a sign.  I would appreciate any response, specially if you are or have worked as a waitress.

She totally wants you, bro.


Nov 20, 2012 7:31pm

Pretty much standard procedure.   You wouldn't be too inclined to leave a tip if she had signed 'Fuck you' instead, right?


Some servers will flirt around with customers just to increase their chances of making bank on tips.

Hum... I see. Thanks for the reply. :)

Some waitresses even draw smiley faces on receipts.


Nov 20, 2012 7:49pm

That's exactly what I got !!! And I thought it was unusual.  Life is funny... :)

Would it be considered inappropiate to ask a waitress out?


Nov 20, 2012 7:55pm

Yes. They're nice because they are supposed to be. It's sort of cornering her, unfortunately. I mean, she might be nice because she thinks you're nice, or cute or something, but generally, she's just doing her job.

Lots of waiters/waitresses write thanks with a smiley face on the bill. I get this in hotels as well. The cleaning staff write thanks with a smiley face on the back of the tip envelope. It's pretty standard procedure, so don't look into it too much. I doubt she was flirting. She most likely was doing her job.

Waitress and cleaning staff are the sort of jobs that girls whose writing style never advanced beyond the age of 9 are likely to end up working at.

If a waitress wanted to ask you out, she'd write down her number and the time her shift ends.

Waitresses are essentially the equivalent of social prostitutes because they are pretty much paid to act socially with you (in tips mostly). Sometimes they get caught up in the fact that you end up being a pretty cool person but that's ONLY if you are social and friendly. 

Make a habit of being social and friendly with waitresses. Once in a while you may get one that really IS interested because you are social and friendly and someone she could see herself hanging with. Based on what you wrote you only seem to have gotten the standard.

You are correct in equating the way-below-minimum-wage pay scale for waitresses with prostitution. That shit is bogus and should be outlawed, of course it went into effect under The Great Knucklehead president Reagan.

Strippers fall into that category as well.

The last person I dated was a waitress.  I worked in Asia for a couple of years doing some trading work.  There was a soccer tournament one summer and I twisted my ankle in the last game of the day.  I needed a drink badly, so me and my friend ended up picking a completely random bar.  The waitress that attended to us was really attractive.  I gave her my number before I left.   She called me the same night right after she had ended her shift.   She was wonderful, and we dated for a month.  The thing is... there was no mind-games involved, everything was straight away, clear, simple, effortless.  But I guess things are different over here, a bit more complicated I would say.

I've had waitresses write "Thanks! :)" on my bill even when I was out with a girl at the time, so it's probably not a "sign".


Nov 21, 2012 11:30am

Seriously? Don't go to restaurants much?

I'd say it's pretty standard anywhere outside of fast food places.  It's not a 'signal' unless it has a phone number.

"Thanks" is a secret waitress code.

The message she was really conveying was an invitation to meet her in the restroom and fuck her brains out.

I waited tables at a 24 hour restaurant in Montana for a year and a half.  Actually made pretty decent money at it; Montana didn't allow any of that tip-gyp, $2.13/hour crap.  Whoring for tips was more than a pastime, as was dating the customers on coworkers (probably 80% of the reason I worked there was for the chix). 


Would it be considered inappropiate to ask a waitress out?


Why would it be?  Waitresses are usually accustomed to taking that stuff in stride.  Go for it!

When Cierra writes "thank you" it means thank you for not hitting on me.
