A video of an IHOP waitress falling asleep while taking an order has gone viral on social media, fueling an emotional debate on whether American society today overworks people.
Details About the Footage Showing an IHOP Waiter Sleeping While Taking an Order
The video, which was first posted on TikTok, shows the waitress whose name is possibly Lisa according to some rumors, appearing to fall asleep midway through taking an order from a customer. In the footage, her eyes close completely, and her arms start to drop, before she abruptly wakes up and continues taking the order. The video has a caption saying, “All we were trying to do was eat breakfast”.
The video has also sparked a broader discussion on the work culture in America, where many workers face long hours, low wages, and lack of benefits. Some people feel that the video shows how broken the system is and how workers need more rights and dignity. They also feel that the health care system needs to be reformed so that no one has to work sick or exhausted.
Some people feel that the video exposes the need for more labor rights and protections, such as higher minimum wage, paid sick leave, and universal health care. They also feel that workers in underpaying jobs deserve more respect and gratitude.
Many people have expressed their sympathy and concern for the waitress, who is clearly extremely tired and needs sleep, but also has no choice but to keep working to make ends meet.
However, not everyone is sympathetic to the waitress. Some people feel that the video shows a lack of good work ethic and professionalism. They also feel that the service and food at IHOP are poor, and they would not want to eat there after seeing the video.
Take a look at how the incident went down. Would you be mad if you were the family ordering food in that situation? The waitress didn’t appear to mess up their order, but would you want to eat food from a place where some of the workers are half awake?
The debate on the video of the IHOP waiter falling asleep while taking an order is likely to continue as more people watch and share it online.
Who is to blame the waitress, American society, or that IHOP location?
