Most of us have been there.

College student or teenager in school – you're broke and need some cash for those shots on Saturday night.

And so begins your time as a waitress – shitty tips, blistered feet, and filthy dishes – oh, the joys.

And now Hollywood has had a little taste of it – well, one actor has.

Chloë Grace Moretz has revealed she waitressed in a Dublin in prep for her latest movie, Greta

In the psychological thriller, the 22-year-old plays American waitress Frances McCullen and while the movie is set in New York, a lot of the filming took place in and around Dublin city.

She told US chat show host Jimmy Kimmel that she asked Jordan if she could give waitressing a go, seeing as she never had a chance to.

She revealed, ''I hadn't ever done that, and in this story, I'm a waitress at a proper restaurant, a fairly nice restaurant and I talked to Neil Jordan, my director, and I said listen, I don't know how to do it.''

She continued, ''I know that it does take a lot to understand the workings of a restaurant and how to do it all. Can I go into a place and try it out? And he said ok, for sure. We found a place, we were filming in Ireland, in Dublin, and I did two days of training. Terrifying. And then they had me hit the floor.''

She added, ''I'm like, 'and would you like a cocktail, top-shelf liquor?' and just failing at it, trying to input it in the screen, don't know how to do that. The order goes in too early and they're mad because the food is cold and they had a gluten allergy they didn't tell me about, but they're mad at me for it. It was just a lot for me."

Yep, that sounds like an average days work for us…



After a waitress in Illinois claimed she was denied a tip by a family after they noted she was sporting an LGBT rainbow tattoo, some members of the Facebook community sought to cast doubt over the story.

Samantha Heaton's story began circulating online after her colleague shared a snap of Samantha's tattoo alongside a receipt which explained why the 20-year-old waitress had been left without a tip despite providing good service.

"I would just like to say that being gay does NOT MEAN you don't believe in God or Jesus. And people who are "religious" should not disrespect or act in such ways to other people," wrote Joelie Nicole Marsh last week.

Samantha was stunned to receive a handwritten message on the credit card receipt which read: "Can’t tip someone who doesn’t love Jesus. Bad tatoo." [sic]

Speaking to local newspaper Rock River Times, Samantha expressed her upset, saying: "I went above and beyond for this couple, and for them to leave that kind of hurt. Like, I have bills to pay too."

Acknowledging the sentiment of the message, Samantha countered: "I do believe in Jesus and God. I myself am a Christian. And, as a Christian, thou shall not judge."

"No matter how someone looks, you should love them for what’s in their heart and how they treat you—not for what is on the outside," she reasoned.

Samantha, who has been in a relationship with her girlfriend for three years, despaired for the future of the family's children, saying:"What if one day their kids grow up and want to be with the same sex, are they going to disown them? Throw them on the street."

Like many members of the LGBT community, Samantha has fought public and private battles since coming out, and feels understandably dismayed by the family's treatment.

"As someone who came out when it was still a battle for the LGBTQ community, that’s just plain rude and uncalled for," Samantha said.

While the post has amassed considerable attention, some members of the public were quick to question the legitimacy of the claim.

"So they wrote the note in blue pen but signed in black let me guess you have a gofundme people can donate to," wrote one.

"Probably another fake story like the last 5 of these that were all proven to be a lie," added another while someone else wrote: "I bet anything, they left her a cash tip on the table and she wrote the note for attention."

"Why are the signature and the "note" from two different color pens? You know, when you do these fake "hate crime" hoaxes, you delegitimize the real ones," remarked someone else.

While the post has received scepticism, it has also amassed thousands of likes and shares since its upload.



We love Amy Schumer purely because she's so hilarious, but it turns out she's a pretty sound gal too.

Amy was in Dublin this week (which sent her Irish fans into overdrive) and decided to have some grub before her show last night.

The comedian went to Doheny & Nesbitt on Baggot Street, and when leaving, left a $100 tip for the waitress.


Thank you Dublin we had the best time!

Instagram user Joey Bagnall shared a picture of Amy's receipt and $100 bill beside it.

He captioned the snap: “Big shoutout to @amyschumer for being a sound customer when I was trying to run the Cellar Bar by myself tonight and an even bigger shout out to her and her friend for managing to stomach 4 main courses! 

"Your tip has made this waitresses day, maybe week. Best of luck with your show! #amyschumer.”

How sound!



Waitressing is a great part-time job to have during college or even full-time whenever – but it's hard. People think it's so easy to be "just a waitress" (we're looking at you Ross Gellar) when in reality it's not easy. At. All. 

1. People asking stupid questions and giving  you stupid answers
Would you like tea or coffee? "Yes” The silence that follows is agonising so you’ve to ask again “tea or coffee?” oh yeah sorry tea. *Face palm*

2. When they start arguments with you with things out of your control. 
Telling the customer that you only accept card for orders over five euro and suddenly World War 3 breaks out.

3. When people make paying the bill awkward
By telling you at the last minute they want to split the bill half with one side of the table and three quarters with the other side and Richard is paying by cash and the rest by card.

4. Then there's the people with the strange food orders that make the chef want to strangle you
Gordon Ramsay’s anger may look entertaining on TV but not when you’re on the receiving end of it.

5. It's actually very tiring 
You are literally standing all day and those trays with food are actually pretty heavy.

6. Rachel Green may make waitressing look glamorous
Reality is you’ve to wear a uniform and not a stylish outfit and your hair has to be tied back. Guess there was no Health and Saftey regulations in Central Perk.

7. Waitresses smiling all the time isn’t because we love our job so much
It's because we have to so don’t be fooled we’re really dying inside.
