Today, while working as a waitress, an attractive woman sat at one of my tables. When she paid, I decided to be bold and write my number and "Call me" on her receipt. She put in a complaint to my manager. FML

It sucks being a lesbian, doesn't it? When the customer is of the opposite sex, a server giving his/her phone number is considered sexy and lucky, but when the customer is of the same sex, it's suddently unprofessional and grounds for layoff. If you ask thoughtful questions like "Did you read (insert name of a queer magazine) recently?" or "Do you plan to go to the Pride parade?", or check for a Pride bracelet or brooch, then you just look creepy or like you are pushing the gay agenda. Maybe there's a Grindr equivalent for lesbians somewhere.

It's considered unprofessional no matter what your sexual orientation. It's generally frowned upon and if one does it there is some mutal interest expressed and not just giving out your number.

Uh, no.
Yes, dating suck as gay people, but as a bi woman let me tell you I want neither my male nor my female waiter's number, because all I want in a restaurant is food. It's never professional and worst case you just made coming back for a customer so awkward you lost the place business.
(I know this because I no longer frequent a place where a server did something similar. A man, btw.)

So this one is actually not on homophobia, but yes lesbian dating/hook-up apps should be a thing. Unfortunately I can't code so someone else will have to take care of it.

Giving your number to a customer may be taking a risk but people do not go to places to be hit on by the staff. In the same respect I am certain you dislike when people hit on you when you are working there.

What an up tight b****! I’ve always found it flattering when someone finds me attractive enough to put themselves out there... man or woman and I’m straight! I mean come on! That would be a huge compliment! The lady could’ve let her down gently. Thanked her and kindly said she wasn’t interested or didn’t swing that way.
