Hey guys, we’re Eatocracy, and we’ll be your food blog today. Our special is annoying restaurant speak, served with a side of sexism, disappearing right when you need the check, verbal specials recitations and not writing down your order so it comes to you all wrong. And of course we won't tell you any of the prices.
We polled our friends and colleagues – including several former servers – about their restaurant pet peeves, then sat back and watched our inbox explode.
Here's what they had to say.

They’ve got the write stuff - why don't they use it?
