5 worst things restaurant servers can say at a table

The top 5 most ineffective and unhelpful things restaurant servers say to customers tableside:
(5) How is everything? (bland, says “I don’t care”)
(4) Manager doing table greeting without introducing themselves by name as the manager. (“hi stranger coming up to my table like we’re friends, who the heck are you??”)
(3) Everything is great! (as a response for customer asking for a menu recommendation – sounds like the server never tried most of the food!)
(2) Are you still working on that? (or worse yet, “still working?”)
(1) Not a problem! (implying that taking care of a customer is usually a “problem”)
