As if SoFla doesn’t have enough attention with its rising virus numbers, the politics and the protests, now a Boca restaurant server is spilling tales to Slate about “the Karens” – customers of the local restaurant world who aren’t very nice to deal with during a tough time. The restaurant isn’t named except as a Chinese-American spot.
I don’t think these stories about badly behaved diners are unique to Boca, however. I know I’ve seen some nasty behavior toward restaurant workers in other cities, and it’s never justified.
Nobody should be mean or rude to serving staff. If you have a problem with the venue or food, ask to see a manager. Especially right now, with the world spinning out of its normal path on all kinds of fronts, pack an extra helping of patience with your mask.
