Being a server means you’re constantly walking on eggshells, especially if you’re serving older customers.

It’s like they have a secret list of common phrases and sayings that are completely and utterly unacceptable to their ears!

Unfortunately for TikTok user @no_one_important900, that’s exactly what happened when she addressed a table as “you guys”, resulting in a lesson in manners from an elderly customer.

Her video starts off with her trying to be NICE to the customers, wishing them a great rest of their day and saying that “I hope you guys enjoyed your meal.”

But somehow, even her politeness was enough to incense an older woman she had served.

“Let me help you, don’t call me a guy! You is plural. Did you take English? It bothers me because you is cool, but you guys is everybody. I’m a woman, and I didn’t get made up to that.”

And even when she tries to explain she was only wishing her and the man she was with a good night, the woman is still determined to be her English teacher!

“Well then you can wish him a good day, and then you can say, Madam, you have a good one!”

At this point the poor girl looks like she wants to crawl out of her skin.

“It’s become a thing. I see young ladies and I think they should call you darling, dear, y’all even because we’re in the South!”

The old woman then proceeds to criticize just about everyone in the US’ way of speaking, as if going after her server wasn’t enough!

“Some people come down here from Pennsylvania and Ohio, and will say “you’s guys”, its not “you’s guys”, its you.”

And the girl awkwardly agrees and tries to end the conversation, but the world’s leading expert in grammar is not letting her off that easy!

“See, I grew up in the Bronx. I can turn back to me in a heartbeat, but the South is known for hospitality and family, so you can address me as you.”

Doesn’t it go against the whole point of good manners to sit there and condescend someone for the way that they speak?

Check out her ridiculous tirade for yourself!

Others suggested she just repeat the same thing that got the woman so mad in the first place.

And finally, this user said she would have stopped the customer the second she decided to put her hands on her!
