Certain Doctor Who Phrases and how Olive Garden Customers React: An Experiment Done by a Server

strangeronbakerstreet:

As a server, I did an experiment tonight, I was saying basically only Doctor Who quotes to my tables, some understood, others did not. These are a few of the phrases and people’s reactions:

[When greeting tables] "Oh hello! I’m The Doctor! I am here to help! Look, they gave me a badge with my name on it in case I forget who I am! Very thoughtful as that does happen.

Lots of confused faces. Many people laughed. The few who got the reference clapped, laughed, or smiled all big like. One girl who got the reference gave me the biggest smile I’ve ever seen, later I would receive her number.

[When speaking to a baby playfully aka fishing for tips] "Oh hello! I speak baby, you know." [baby does baby thing] "No, he’s your dad you can’t just call him ‘not mum’"

I’m met with a roar of laughter from the table, and the neighboring table, an extra 10 dollars added to my tip. 

[Offering desserts (to the kids)] "You could have a slice of Triple Chocolate Strada for only $6.99 which I personally think is a bit steep. But then again, it’s your parent’s cash and they’ll only waste it on boring stuff like lamps and vegetables. Yawn!”

I actually sold every table the dessert I offered when I offered it this way. Few got the reference, the ones who understood “Hi I’m The Doctor” were completely losing their shit at this point in the meal, as I’d been dropping references all dinner.

[When an elderly woman literally threatened to slap me for being so strange] "900 years of time and space and I’ve never been slapped by someone’s mother."

Her family started cracking up and she just chuckled a little. I narrowly avoided a guest complaint for the sake of Doctor Who. I’m proud of that one.

[Messed up an order] "I’m sorry, I’m so… So sorry."

No reaction from this one, save for the girl who was fangirling over me from the beginning. (Not too surprising though, only table I messed up on, so I only got one chance to use it)

[After Guest hands me their ticket and wishes to pay] "Allons-y"

Two guests understood and stared wide-eyed. One gave me her number (After I had been using Who quotes on her table all night), and requested I pick her up in a TARDIS. Those that didn’t understand stared at me quizzically.

And lastly, that girl who gave me her number FINALLY talked as the family was leaving. Her final words to me were "I don’t want to go."

She then threw her arms out at her sides and I had to explain to my manager what I was doing. He laughed for a solid minute. Then told like half the staff. Needless to say, I am now quite the oddity at the restaurant. BUT I MADE A HELL OF A LOT OF MONEY.

And here’s why I think The Doctor should be played by a man. Be gentle, I think i’ve laid out some valid reasons! X

someone left an ask in my box earlier about if I thought a lady Doctor would be a good idea and so far this is the only actual contribution to that debate that I’ve heard beyond “because (buck|preserve) the status quo!”

This does actually bring up some good points - worth a watch.

Yeah I haven’t wanted to weigh in on this debate because I feel the same way as this dude

YOU PUT IT INTO WORDS

I’m personally neither opposed or unopposed to a female doctor but his reasons do make sense and he is not being sexist in any way.

Bless this entire post.

AU in which the Doctor is a very sick little boy lying in a hospital bed in a coma and his universe is just a dream. Each of his companions represent the kids in the beds next to him and when they die or leave the ward, they die or leave in his head. Regenerations represent times he nearly woke up or nearly died and the TARDIS represents his life support machine.

what THE FUCK is wrong with you
