I am a server and let me say this…children are (generally) the bane of my existence. I get maybe 1 really well behaved child out of 10, tops. I have had two feet of terror DESTROY a corner of my section, necessitating hardcore mid-shift clean-up. There are few things that stress me out more than a table with children.
Plus, when you consider how much I’m getting tipped on a child’s meal (1.00, more or less), I’m putting in way more prep/clean up effort than I am for an adult meal for less money. Economically, kids screw me every time. Give me a table of drinking grown-ups any day of the week.
In conclusion, if my place of employment had a ‘fucking needy kid’ button, you can bet that I would use it. It’s a relatively harmless way to blow off steam about something that annoys most servers.
