No, You May Not: A Podcast About Working in the Service Industry

“No, You May Not” was born after what was initially supposed to be a five minute exercise in podcasting was accompanied with a bottle of wine and an axe to grind with the Karens, Debbies, Chads, and Keiths of the world. Ninety minutes later, we had our podcast. (Actually, that’s not entirely true. We needed to go back and re-record something reasonably shorter for handing in.)

This week we're continuing our conversation with Derek about weird things customers do in restaurants, in the bodily fluids edition of this topic! You asked and we delivered!

Episode 9: Feeding the Peanut Gallery, Part One

This week we're talking about weird things customers do in restaurants. Our guest is Derek, in his first appearance on our show. From children to drugs (yikes, actually), from obnoxious number balloons that don't fit through the door to guests making demands before they're even inside the building, from meteorology to just getting thrown under the bus, believe it or not this is the PG portion. Part two, the bodily fluids edition, coming next week. Subscribe for weekly episodes! Have a...

This week, we're discussing what makes a standout FOH teammate, and plenty about our guest, Greg, being Australian. In fact, we ran long again, so we will be airing the second half of this topic next week! Weird, right? Almost as though giving a bunch of people who talk to people for a living a bit of booze and opening the floor leads to weird and wonderful places. Subscribe for weekly episodes!

Episode 6: That Thing You Do (is Rude), Part Two

More
Brock is still here and we continue talking about the things you don't think about as being rude when inside the walls of our establishments. We talk about self-seaters; antiquated (and not-so antiquated) gender-based requests and complaints; that guy who wears his modus operandi on his t-shirt, hat, and/or truck; sampling your way through the wine list; corkage; happy hour; your dietary restrictions (real and not); asking for items we don't sell; enlisting staff to steal for you; and being...

On this episode we finally pop our guest cherry! We talk about mallwalkers, gate-hoppers, tasers, the viscosity of French dressing, obnoxious drink garnishes (meal with your Caesar?), and people who breeze past an obvious host. We went super long on this one because we got overexcited to have someone to banter with. Tune in next week for part two of That Thing You Do (is Rude) with Brock! Subscribe for weekly episodes!

This week we talk about taxes, shopping for necessities in the dystopia of early afternoons on weekdays, calling in sick, calling in "sick", one-day weekends, and your girlfriend (who is definitely not hungry).

Episode 3: 10 Customer Stereotypes, Part Two

7/18/2019
More
In this sequel to the previous episode, we talk about shoeless drunks, shameless unsponsored plugs for foot care, a lot of shit about Chili's again somehow, DINKs, middle-aged women squawking like pterodactyls, dropping our former coworkers' names like they're hot, and allergies (both real and imagined). We had to cut a large chunk of this out as T's recording device decided to tap out toward the end, so bear with us if she sounds a million miles away for a minute. You can find the missing...

Episode 2: 10 Customer Stereotypes, Part One

7/11/2019
More
This week we try to get through ten common customer stereotypes, counting them down from best to worst. We also discover that Justin doesn't like Toblerone bars, like a monster. Ultimately we only had time for five, so this is going to be a two-parter. Next week we will be scraping the bottom of the barrel for the rest of the list. Subscribe for weekly episodes!

It's our first episode! Recorded back in November 2018 for a school assignment, this episode talks about the dining experience from the server's point of view. This episode was never supposed to see the light of day, yet, here we are. We figure out a podcast name, talk about metal bands, and get aggressively topic-adjacent. Off to a great start.
