there are older servers being that it is an environment for older people to eat in, just as a bartender is likely to be in his or her twenties to attract and relate to the young drinking crowd, as depicted to the left.

workers since cruise ships do travel to various destinations. It can be assumed that the bartender in the photograph would receive the most respect and the best tip since she is a pleasure to look at. Despite having various looks and locations, servers all have the same job with the same goal: to attend to the customers’ needs in order to earn compensation from those customers in return. So since all of these workers have the same job description, is it necessary to judge them based on their appearance? Just because a waitress looks like she’s in her forties doesn’t mean she doesn’t need money to possibly enroll her kids in school or pay the bills. Just because the waiter is foreign and speaks broken English doesn’t mean he is working miles from home for no reason. Serving is not just a pocket-money kind of job; for some people it’s their source of income. Not only do servers have to deal with bad tips, but they also have to address customers who are rude and disrespectful. Don’t get me wrong, there are some circumstances where people have the right to complain, but to be deliberately picky is unnecessary. Once somebody makes the choice to go out to a restaurant they also choose to eat the food and receive the service of that restaurant. Servers are not miracle workers. Do not ask for your fries well done with just a little bit of salt and then complain that they’re overcooked and tasteless. Servers have complex jobs.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
