My manager and the hostess both commented that the two women seemed mortified and embarrassed. Not because of me, but because of the man.
I think that says it all, that he's just a loud-mouth who reports people to their managers all the time and they go along with him instead of telling him to cut it out.

I've also had people be quite rude and demanding/entitled and had their children or spouses criticize them right in front of me and tell them,"Be nice!"

I know I did everything in my power to be a good server and rectify the situation. They didn't give me the chance to.

I KNOW I'm not better than anybody. The last couple of years have been the most humbling I could imagine.
