Waiter Rant Cover (US) — 40 Comments

  1. Yes, Ash. They’ll put the cover on upside-down for Oz.

    Congrats, Waiter! Astounding achievement. When will we see you traveling with the irrepressible Mr. Bourdain?

    I am sorry that all of my pithy comments, usually buried somewhere about 100 replies deep, have now shuffled off to even more obscurity.

    This “change” you have effected has afforded me a rare opportunity to be in the top ten, and here I am with nothing…

    :o )

  2. Ohhhhhhhhhhhh. Tony. The only man my husband need worry about.

    I have been a server for nineteen years. I am going to eat this book UP. Savor every delicious moment.

  3. I received an advance copy of your book and I am really enjoying it! I actually started reading the book before I ever knew you had a blog. The writing style is especially entertaining and easy to follow. Are you sure you’re a waiter that wrote a book, and not a writer that is waiting tables?

  4. Hey Waiter,

    I’ve been following your blog for a long time now, so I’m really excited that your book will be coming to Singapore in August.

    Congratulations on publication :)

  5. Congrats, Waiter! Spent the last few days reading my way through your archives; great stuff as always. I can’t wait for your book release in July!

    It’s sad that all the previous comments were lost though…it was always fun to read them

  6. Beautiful! Looking forward to the book.

    All this time, you know, I thought the title of the blog was a bit of wordplay: “waiter rant” vs. “wait-errant” (as in “knight-errant”). I guess not? :-)

  7. actually, waiter, I don’t think you’re cynical at all. I always thought you were amazingly empathic and even prudently optimistic once in a while.

    Love that about you.

    Claire

  8. I love your work, because I do the same job you do. It is good to know that other people go through the things I do.
    I’d love to get a hold of the book, but I’m not sure if it will be available in Europe or Estonia for that matter.

    Cheers!

  9. But will we ever see you Waiter? I agree with Claire above, you’re not cynical, you honest. I’m a long time reader and have already ordered my copy of the book.

    Congrats!

  10. Food God Anthony Bourdain wrote a blurb for your book??? Holy crap! That was the little push I needed to press Add to Cart on Amazon.

  13. Your book sounds like it’s going to be amazing. I was only looking for advice on how much to tip when I go to New York this weekend and stu,bled across this. I’m definately gona tip as much as I can afford to.

    Unfortunately I’m not loaded or semi loaded, I get about £2 per hour which is prolly about $3.60 and I’ve maxed my card out to go here. But sure its all good.

    Anyhoo, I pre-ordered your book on amazon too. It is definately a good read so far. I can’t get enough of it. Pity it wasn’t out in time for my long 7.25 hourflight.

    Your sales will roar I’m sure and I really do hope that all goes well for you.

  14. Since I read the book I am cooking more at home. My desire for dining in a restaurant has disappeared. Thank you! I don’t think Bourdain should be compared to anyone and visa versa. And if it is good what someone has to say it will sell anyway with comments or without.
    In my 50years of eating in restaurants all over the world I have experienced the most, not being a professional waiter is the norm, and most of the time “waiters” don’t know what they are doing unfortunately. In Melbourne a know a few restaurants were the waiters know what they do, but it’s rare. It’s terrifying to go to a restaurant and not knowing what you get served, and how the service will be. So, I am better of eating at home.
