Today, I was so broke and hungry that I went to Olive Garden and faked being stood up, just so I could eat their breadsticks. FML

Just cause she's broke doesn't mean she doesn't have a job

I thought you had to order an entrée before they give you salad and breadsticks..?

Yep 61 is right you order then get salad and breadsticks, which are very warm and delicious btw. OP could've ordered a salad or something though and the breadsticks came with them

I only have to order a drink before they give me breadsticks...

Good tactic... O_o I think I'll try it!

23, maybe OP needs a second job! But fyl, local soup kitchen?

you can have a job and be broke at the same time, i work a full time job and am broke half the time.

And now I'm craving their breadsticks...and there is no Olive Garden where I live now...FML.

In Canada we don't have an olive garden! :(

Why does everyone say they're so good? Breadsticks can't be THAT amazing.

I live in Canada, and I haven't seen an Olive Garden anywhere.

they took all the olive gardens out of ontario

There breadsticks are amazingly good! I wish I had some right now! 87, you should go try them, then you'd know how great they are!

Ya we have olive garden in Canada bro! I've got one a few kilometers from my house

116, I will eventually. I lol'd at how many negatives I got there. I guess people get real pissed off when you've never tried Olive Garden.

108- 2 is a lot? There are only 2 in Manitoba... Far more in bc, ontario, quebec and Alberta. Not sure about Saskatchewan or the east coast though... Haven't made it out there yet. Yay travel!

77- There's an Olive Garden in Winnipeg on Portage Ave where it meets St.James, I drove past that place 4 days a week. :p And besides the breadsticks, the chocolate spiked coffees are delicious. ;)

We do have olive garden in Alberta, Canada!!! :)

What are you talking about? There's definitely Olive Gardens in Canada.

Their bread sticks are like mini orgasms in your mouth, I can deep through those things all day xD

I've never been to Olive Garden. I really want to now.

Me too! Are there even any Olive Gardens in Europe?

229-just go to Italy, get authentic food not the processed food at chain restaurants.

77, what the hell are you talking about? There's Olive Gardens all over the place in Canada.

Agreed on the good idea, and hell yes it's worth it. Free usually is, even for the price of a little dignity. I would have just made sure I left the server at least buck for dealing with me and for taking up their table for what was probably an unnecessarily long amount of time. If even one dollar is too much to spare, I think it's time for a little life reevaluating.

If you're only tipping me a dollar for sitting at my table for any longer than 10 minutes I'd be pretty pissed. Min 5 bucks, no matter what.

156, you sound like a jerk. If people didn't like your service, they shouldn't be expected to tip. If they obviously loved it, that's another story. Either way, tipping isn't required...

2.75 dollars an hour??? What the **** is the American minimum wage?!

Differs depending upon where you are, but servers make like $2.50 or so and then tips. In Georgia the minimum wage is 7$.25 currently.

Their breadsticks are delicious...

Waiter: What can I get you? Op: I'm waiting on my date, then I'll order. Waiter: okay, here's some bread sticks while you wait Op: *nibbles on breadsticks* Op: wow.. Not again.. F this I'm leaving

You didn't need to fake anything, I go to Mexican food joints to eat the chips! :D

Your life sucks, but that was pretty smart! You can also go to McDonald's and say your name is in the book for a free meal credit due to a past mix up, or call ahead and complain to them. I've hit rock bottom a few times :p

My brothers friend went to mc donalds and bought fries and ate almost all of them and then put one of his hairs in it and went to a worker and asked for a refill because his had hair in it lol

because that's comparable to olive garden
