Traffic Surge

I’ve noticed a recent surge in traffic to Waiter Rant. Welcome to all the new readers! My Stat Counter software indicates that several hundred people have come to the site via a Google keyword search. (Keyword – “”) Is there a news story out there I don’t know about? I’d like to know who my referrer is so I can thank them with a link on my blog!

Almost 200,000 visitors. I should start selling t-shirts.

Thanks for visiting the Bistro!

  1. your blog was on the notable blogs list on the right sidebar @ when you sign into your dashboard thing. Again, thanks for the awesome blog, started reading yesterday when I saw it on the blogs of note thing and will read as long as you post.

  2. You should definitely sell waiter rant t-shirts. I would buy one, and I bet several other people would too. Seriously

  3. Well, people recognize quality blogging of course Waiter, you are a hero among us. Good on ya! (((((Waiter))))))) take it easy okay?

  4. I came here from Ottmar Liebert’s blog as well…but now I just come straight here. Too bad this isn’t what you’re getting paid for! You’re a great story teller….and yes….I’d buy a t-shirt!

  5. I also hit on your blog because it was on the right sidebar. I’ve enjoyed reading it and will continue to do so.
    You have a sense of humour that is enjoyable to share.
    Well done!

  6. I found your blog through
    I don’t know if it’ll be offensive, but your site was on the “Top 10 Boredom-Busting Sites” and I’ve been sitting at my laptop, reading for hours. I really enjoy your stories. You are a very interesting person, to say the very least.

    P.S. Now that I think of it, boredom-busting is a good thing. Yay! :D

  7. when I saw watzshakinbacon had posted just recently, I figured it was ok for me to post too . . . I stumbledupon your blog three days ago and since then, with requisite bio and work related breaks, I have pretty much been reading it exclusively . . . it’s hilarious, entertaining and so so true . . . I’m not a waitron, never have been, but all four of my children have been at some time or other, one of them is a chef in england now . . . I’m a customer though and I tip as if every wait person I come across is one of my kids or their friends . . . it’s a thankless job and I have never come across a wait person who didn’t do their best . . .

    keep blogging waiter . . . I’ll be coming back regularly . . .

  8. I learned about this blog from my roommate. She told me stories that she had read, and I came to check it out myself. It’s a pleasure reading!

  9. I also found you through about a month ago and have been reading my way through your blog on my phone! I love your writing style and will definitely remain a loyal reader. It’s going to suck having to wait for more once i run out of back entries to read.

  10. It is now 2012 and I found your blog googling best blogs in the world. I think it’s rated at 44? In the world! Have been reading every entry starting from the first one, best stuff I’ve ever come across! keep writing, don’t ever stop!

  11. I found your blog on a BBC news article I am a Brit living in Czech Republic and find tipping an interesting topic as we (Brits) do no rely so heavily on it as over in the states. I know plenty of Americans that live here that have been waiting staff, so i can understand why you do rely so much on it.
    Enjoying your blog and i am going through your stories one by one…

  12. I actually read your book this summer– and now as I sit here at my seemingly pointless job doing phone sales, I’ve been reading as I wait for someone on the other end of the line to pick up. Started at the first post. You are awesome!
