Reed Hearne replied to Reed Hearne's discussion Should Hooters, Tilted Kilt and Twin Peaks be held to the same service standards as other restaurants?
"I agree with you that each restaurant should have a code for what constitutes good service. The rules for such a code would have to be painted in very broad strokes to be "universal", such as Servers should frame everything they do from…"

"  I think that all restaurants should be held to the same standards as the next.  People go to a restaurant to eat and be served in a kind and welcoming manner.  While having an attractive waiter makes for a better experience at a…"

Reed Hearne commented on Waitrainer's blog post What makes a great server?
"I have to admit as a server that I do "profile" guests and have different expectations of what their gratuity will be according to years of experience. Any server that says they don't do this I think is being dishonest. What I…"

Reed Hearne commented on Waitrainer's blog post What makes a great server?
"I agree completely. The price paid has very little to do with the level of service encountered. I've said it many times and many ways on my own blog. Essentially what makes for great service is the ability to see a situation from the viewpoint…"

"I laughed my ass off!  I don't think a server could get away with this, but should!  I've waited on many grumpy/a****** customers in my day.  If I could have gotten away with something like this, I would have."

"That's too funny! I think we all know the reality though. As much as everyone who has ever worked in a restaurant would LOVE to try and pull that off, we know we can't. I guess we can just all live vicariously through that scene. :) "

There is nothing wrong with making consumer choices based on the emotional reactions of the mob if, more often than not, you identify your perceptions as average.
Biography
I am a published writer of numerous articles, essays, restaurants reviews and short fiction in magazines and books both online and in print. My background includes years of fine dining service experience working with celebrated chefs, sommeliers and winemakers.

I created, designed and write the blog which focuses on service in all of its manifestations. If we can better understand why service fails us when it disappoints or exalts us when it exceeds our expectations, we can move toward improving it all around and discover why most believe it is on a downward spiral in our culture.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
