If You Hate Your Servers, Rejoice

If you often go to a restaurant and think "If only I could call on my server like I call on my dog," then Applebee's in the place for you.

I'm from Lakeland, and the Applebee's here have had that system for about 2 years. I just assumed that all Applebee's had that. It's not as inhumane as it sounds. Everyone was very tentative about using the system at first, but the waitresses always encourage you to press the button when you need anything.

in south korea, they have this system down pat. there is a buzzer on the table and when hit the buzzer, the table number appears on a screen so that the server knows where to go. no big deal.

They're not experimenting. They've been doing this for years. Every Korean restaurant in Los Angeles has this system, too.
