The customers wrote that they were ‘sorry the server gets screwed’ because of the restaurant’s policy
We all know the expression “don’t shoot the messenger”, and yet some people still choose to lash out at workers who are just doing their jobs.
This is what happened to a waitress at a brewery-restaurant in New Jersey last week, when customers furious at the eatery’s coronavirus policy took it out on their hard-working server.
The US state of New Jersey allows restaurants to open and serve provided they run at 50 per cent seating capacity and take other Covid-secure measures to keep customers safe.
The Glenbrook Brewery, where the incident took place, limits all seatings to 90 minutes or under to ensure they can serve as many diners as possible during opening hours.
The waitress, named only as Beth, approached the table of four after they’d been at their table for about 80 minutes to let them know their time was almost up, the brewery’s creative director Darren Cregan told TODAY.
