    Funny, as I got older I realized the true tragedy if Jurassic Park

    Hammond spared no expense, even on ice cream, but then cheaped out on IT/security of all things

    Just like State Infrastructure

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe

    I went to a fancy restaurant in New Orleans once and the waiter was like "we don't split the check here, it's not that kind of restaurant sir..."

    I then went to a seafood place instead and got some fried shit.

    Restaurant culture is so weird in the US.

    When there are like 20 people at a table, the servers here still track individual bills (usually digitally) and people pay individually or ask for their bills to be joined up

    Customers regularly ask for things to be divided equally, or some things to be divided while others are not, and all manner of arcade combinations

    Then we just tip 20% for the hassle

    I highly doubt 20 people are tracked individually. Because either then the server has to remember who each 20 people are (really hard) or the kitchen gets 20 individual orders at once (good way to get murdered)

    Basically I think you're a fucking dirty liar

    if you can't remember what 20 people ordered i mean why are you even working for $2.13/hr

    back when i worked at gamestop they would let us borrow brand new games (partially as an employee perk but also 'for product knowledge' to help sell) and then have us shrinkwrap them and sell them as new

    Cass got a rude awakening to how Machiavellian my wife can be over a game of Twilight Imperium.

    It was me, my wife, Cass, Choco, Wash, and Aarseth playing. At the midpoint of the game, it had turned into a 2 v 2 v 2 war. Me and Choco vs Wash and Aarseth vs my wife and Cass.

    And basically after Cass had a brutal battle with Wash where her forces were decimated, my wife backstabbed her and allied with Wash and Aarseth, dividing up Cass' territory and eliminating her.

    The reason was Choco and I needed to be stopped, and my wife liked her odds better allying with Wash and Aarseth, but their allegiance was contingent on dividing up Cass' resources.

    So Cass was sacrificed as the weaker ally, and my wife just calmly and coldly explained her logic to a stunned Cass before the triumvirate declared war on Choco and I.

    Cass looked at me and just flatly said "You two deserve each other" and I nodded solemnly in agreement.

    Re: seat number works in theory when everyone stays in their seat and pays at the end

    But it never works that way. People leave early and then people fill in the empty spaces and then you have to remember where someone you've never met was sitting for like 45 minutes while you were making sure the food was put in correctly, water was filled, courses bussed, etc

    A good server will track individuals individually if asked. Ive dated several. They have seat numbers or some other landmark that they use for identification on table numbers.

    I've never been to Boston, everything I know about it is from movies with Ben Affleck and also that movie with Dicaprio

    Also I have to buy clothes, the only clothes I have newer than 3 years are my work clothes, and then only because my employer gave me a bunch of clothes

    Many computer systems have you enter the orders by seat. When you are hired as a server, you learn not just the table numbers, but also where "Seat 1" is on each table, and then you go clockwise or counterclockwise from there, depending on the restaurant, to get the seat numbers for the whole table. Once you know the seat numbers, you take each order down by seat number, and put them in the system by seat number, hitting "next seat" after each order.

    There are two advantages to this. One is that it makes it easy to give each person an individual check if necessary. The other is that other servers or food runners can bring food to your table and give it to the proper person without having to shout "who had the fried chicken?" or whatever.

    so we almost always do a prix fixe and not everyone stays till the end- i'm sitting there like a conquering emperor as people walk up hey chu thanks for dinner, i'm getting mine and like, mya's drinks and they hand me a few twenties and i'm like oh oka- and someone walks up and is like hey man can i pay you for my drinks? also i got the wellington which you said has a price supplement, right?

    and then it's time to go and i'm like, i have 700 dollars people have given me, who hasn't paid yet

    and 20 minutes later we're 380 dollars short on a 3,400 dollar bill

    Ooh boy, I'd be calling people, their work, their moms, forwarding google doc links ending in shit like dinner_total_additions_final_shortage_final_deadbeats.xlsx

    The extra fucked up part of that story is apparently my wife and Aarseth had worked out an arrangement that had Wash lost that fight, Aarseth would have turned on him and joined up with Cass and my wife.

    So my wife was just siding with whoever won, and to the victor went the spoils.
