The 11 Question Interview Presents The Bitchy Waiter

Hello, and welcome to the latest edition of The 11 Question Interview, wherein I pose eleven esoteric questions to various equally esoteric personalities. Here we go...

The Bitchy Waiter. A premise as simple as can be. According to this blogosphere phenom's Facebook page, "This is a blog by a bitchy waiter in New York City who blogs to keep from poking customers in the eyes with forks." So there. This guy runs a heee-larious blog (found right here) where he tells it like it is in the service industry. Having spent more than fifteen years of my own life in that same service industry, I can attest to how sharp and witty, and right on the mark, the Bitchy Waiter is in his cyber-diatribes. Again, according to his FB page, The Bitchy Waiter's mission is thus: "The mission of this bitchy waiter is to blog in order to keep the anger and frustration in tap so that he does not explode one day and poke a customer in the eye with a fork. Again." And yes, as a former server, I understand the desire to stab customers in the eyes with forks. But enough of this gab. Let's get on with the 11 questions.


If you were on that proverbial desert island, which one film, one book, and one piece of music would you want to have with you?
  • The film I would take with me would be The Color Purple because I can always watch any scene from that movie and be completely mesmerized. Book would be Catcher in the Rye, without a doubt. The one piece of music would be the overture to Candide by Leonard Bernstein because it never fails to put me in a good mood.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
  • I wanted to be in advertising like Darrin Stevens form Bewitched.

If you could choose one person from throughout history, real or fictional, to have a beer with, who would that one person be, and why?
  • Princess Diana because I'm pretty sure we would have hit it off.

If you could sing one song on American Idol, what song would you sing?
  • I would sing the Sam Harris version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" so I could wail on it.

If you had to pick just one item of food to eat for the rest of your life, what would that food be, and why?
  • Pizza, because it's pizza, duh.

Who was your first celebrity crush?
  • Lisa Welchel, Blair from The Facts of Life.

If they made a movie of your life, who would play you?
  • For the younger version of me, Dustin "Screech" Diamond and for the older version of me, Gene Wilder, but only if they wouldn't let me play myself.

If you had to live the rest of your life inside a movie, TV show, or comic strip, which movie, TV show, or comic strip would it be?
  • I think I would take The Cosby Show because I want to live in that fabulous brownstone in Brooklyn Heights.

If you could be any inanimate object, what inanimate object would you be, and why?
  • A pillow because I love sleep so much and it would be wonderful to just be on the bed all damn day.

What is the best insult/comeback/what have you, that you have ever given to a customer or a fellow worker?
  • "Fuck you. Nobody cares."

If you could choose any two celebrities, from any time period, to be your parents, whom would you choose?
  • I can't imagine anyone I would want more than my own parents, Lionel and Nellie.

I want to thank The Bitchy Waiter for stopping by and taking part in The 11 Question Interview. It is always a pleasure to read and hear what he has to think on the world around him. Again, his blog can be found here, and make sure to like him on Facebook as well. I'll be back sometime soonish, with a brand new, I mean interviewee for the next installment of The 11 Question Interview. That's it gang. See ya 'round the web.


  1. Oh my-the stories he must have. He wouldn't want to bring one of his customers with him to the isle? Darrin Stevens did have a cool job-I agree with that

  2. My big problem with Darrin Stephens is how he never wanted Sam to use her magic powers. If my wife were a witch, I would be upset when she DIDN'T use her powers

    1. That is true and he was a bit of an old fashioned idiot. I would have never listened to him and would go off to Paris for dinner if i felt like it
