Welcome to retail, if you cant handle it then get out.

It sounds like you were either not suited to that job, or that restaurant had particularly bad clientele. Either way I think you are better off now.

i've done lots of server work, and let me tell you, if you take things like that so seriously, youre gonna have an awful time. I've dealt with many customers being upset over silly things like their rice and sauce barely touched, or we didn't have the right kind of cooking oil, or we didn't recycle enough. All you need to do is smile and nod, fix it no matter how ridiculous it may seem, and/ or apologize. even make up an excuse if the situation calls for it! you have to have a positive outgoing personality for this job. no offense intended (it could be because of your frustration), but you don't seem to be very happy, positive, and have a bit of a prejudice against people that order a certain beverage... This may just not be the right kind of job for you either. maybe find a job in sales/retail?

I used to be a waitress as well and I only lasted 2 weeks. I was trained horribly and was basically just thrown out there. I hated that and when I tried asking questions they looked at me like I was stupid. So I said whatever and ditched the job. Tips were good but not worth the stress.
