Have You Done One of These 10 Rude Things at a Great Falls Restaurant?

Despite almost four decades of being on the airwaves of radio stations, it was by far not the first or even second job that I have had through the years.  Far, far from it.  Sort of a jack of all trades, master of none of them kind of guy.


Each job had merits and demerits to them.  But the one that had to be one of the worst was that of working in the food industry.  Although, any type of job where you deal with the public on a constant basis can be horrible.  And people are just plain rude.
