Today, I greeted my table (I'm a server) with a colloquial "Hey there, guys, how's it going?" The customers were three butch lesbians who thought I was incorrectly identifying their gender. I received no tip (on a $35 bill), and they registered a corporate complaint about my "insensitivity." FML

  • I served for nearly a decade, and this drove me nutz. I use "guys" as a general non-gender specific greeting as well. F*** em.

    Adversely, there's no way to sidestep it when you say "what can I get for you ma'am" when it is a dude with long hair. Done that a few times too many. FML
