the literal best service I have recently received was at a Waffle House in Kennesaw, believe it or not. She was elderly, and treated us like kings at a Waffle House at 9am on a Sunday Morning. Professional is an understatement. I tipped her 100% (but don't think I'm MoneyBags or anything - it's Waffle House and the price of their plates are like $6 each or something).To you, waiting tables was just something to carry you over for a while. Waiting tables is beneath you.
The last time we visited San Francisco, we had an incredible dinner at the Cliff House, big windows looking out over the ultramarine Pacific. The chef grows his own tomato plants!! The menu was quite varied, but we live in the middle of the continent, and whenever we are by the ocean, it's seafood for us, fresh seafood ............. fresh oysters, mussels, scallops, crab, ahi tuna, salmon, pacific cod....................
Our waiter made numerous excellent suggestions, and provided exquisite service.
He'd waited at the restaurant for almost 40 years. He took immense pride in his chosen profession. He clearly wasn't a rich man, but he had a nice home, and was set to retire in a few years.
Waiting tables was not beneath him, not something he did to carry him over for a little while. Waiting tables for him is something you can't imagine.
