Waitress Serves Grumpy Old Man For 7 Years, Then Receives A Gift After He Passes Away

Despite his cold appearance, Buck would change this waitress’ life forever

For most people, going out to eat is a nice outing. It’s the perfect time to enjoy perfectly cooked food and try out new things. And you don’t have to worry about clearing the table or doing the dishes. On top of that, it’s always nice to get out of the house. 

To give the guests a relaxing experience, restaurant workers have to work hard. The chefs, managers, and servers do their very best to make sure things run smoothly. One of these hard workers was Melina Salazar from Texas. With years of experience, she knew how to deal with challenging situations and needy guests. Some customers were pickier than others. As a regular at Luby’s, the WWII veteran, Buck, was one of the hardest to please. But despite his reputation, he would change Salazar’s life for good. 

Passion for her work 

A career in waitressing isn’t a dream job for most people, but Melina Salazar wasn’t like most people. She worked at Lucy’s, a cafeteria style restaurant chain in Texas. After years in the industry, Salazar started to love her job. On top of that, she was good at it. She was probably the best waitress in the restaurant according to fellow staff. 

Customer service was at the top of Salazar’s priorities. Every customer deserved to be treated with respect, no matter how difficult they were. Salazar’s colleagues say that she was always smiling and making people happy. These qualities set her apart, but also exposed her to the roughest challenge she’d faced up to that point…

Top service 

Because she was so good with handling difficult customers, she was given a special task. Management wanted her to take care of Luby’s most difficult customer. Many people would be fed up with the job, but Salazar didn’t have a single problem with it. She was excited for the challenge. 

There was one specific customer that was so difficult that other servers didn’t want to serve him unless there was no other choice. Even Salazar admitted that it was no walk in the park dealing with him. He was one of the most difficult customers she had ever come across. But still, she had her reasons to go on serving him.
