In this series, food and drink professionals dish to Gut Check about their pet peeves anonymously but honestly.

Gut Check Code Name: Kloco

Position: Server at a casual Italian restaurant on the Hill

Pet Peeve #1 People who talk on their cell phones while they're trying to order, or on a Bluetooth headset, so you think they're talking to you.

Pet Peeve #2 Campers. If you get the bill and you just want to hang out, go ahead and pay the waiter. He may have better things to do.

Pet Peeve #3 Being ignored, like having to repeat the salad dressing list for two people when you just said it. Or when you go to a table and say "Hi! How are you guys doing?" and they don't even make eye contact.
