How about I patronize a restaurant that isn’t run by the mentally ill?
No and I will just take my business elsewhere where the staff aren’t all Its.
Minneapolis is quickly sliding even deeper into Leftist Hell.
Taco Cat. Redundant, definitely not gender neutral.
“Refer to them as THE STAFF.”
I’m thinking “waitron.”
No, I wont.
If some idiot asked for my preferred pronoun I’d say “X”. Short for “ex-customer”, and walk out.
Brother (Sister) It.
That’s what I was thinking..epic fail.
These social justice types really think that everyone else thinks like them. People just need a little nudge to do what’s right. No one will mind, they’ll be glad of the reminder.
OTOH most normal people say yuck, I’ll go elsewhere.
In a related story, Minneapolis restaurants failing at an alarming rate.
“How else would I call for my waitress or waiter?”
Well, “bitch” used to refer primarily to females, but has become a cross-over term recently. How about we call all their wait staff, “Bitch”?
Im a waitress, we are already the help. Eliminating sir or maam is just dehumanizing, IMO.
But, no one is forced to work in these freakshows. This policy guarantees (though I could be wrong) they will have servers who are not warm, friendly or gracious. Serving is a bit of theatre; you read the table and act accordingly in order to please the customer. People who put their preferred pronoun desires ahead of fabulous service will be crappy servers.
“...use gender-neutral language...”
When I was in high school (many years ago) I took Latin. We used to joking use the Latin word “istud” to insult each other. It just means “thing” with no gender attached and no brain.
If we wanted to further the insult, we’d say it backwards: “dutsi.”
If I'm unfortunate enough to be dining there, you suggest I say, "Good morning Staff. I'd like the ribeye." "Oh Staff, could you refill my water?" "Staff, do you have a dessert menu?"
If they want me to call them that, they can put it on their ****ing name tag.
Be careful what you call them. Better to just move on.
Servers and kitchen help have been known to pee and worse on the food of people they do not like.
Save any insults for the way out the door.
The idiot thinks getting into a political tiff with their customers isn’t going to hurt business??
Typical liberal: An idiot.

Oh, serving unit!
