A waitress was filmed tripping over a dog while carrying pints of beer, leading to her dropping everything on the sidewalk – and the internet has slammed the pet owner for not having pay more attention.
In a Publish shared on TikTok, waitress Sinead Cartwright, known on the platform as sin.marie, released a CCTV video of the restaurant she works at, showing her tripping over the dog, with a caption that read: “The [dog’s] ok ….. the beers [didn’t] do it anyway.”
In the video, she is seen walking out of the restaurant to serve the outside tables, holding a tray with two pints, when suddenly she trips over a dog lying in the middle of the sidewalk and the tray topples over.
According to research conducted by the PEW Charitable Trusts, in many parts of the United States, taking a dog to restaurants is illegal unless it is a service dog. Only a few states have laws allowing dogs to join their owners on restaurant patios.
The video, which was first shared in July, has gone viral across all social media, reaching over 93,600 likes, 2,282 comments and 626 shares.
The internet was split on this, and while most people thought the dog shouldn’t be placed there, criticizing the owner’s poor judgment, others thought the waitress should have been more careful.
One user, Epic shorts commented, “I’m sorry but it’s the waitress’s fault here.” And Den sure nabo replied, “Go work in restaurants.”
kid.luke said, “The dog shouldn’t be there, but like, he wasn’t very hidden now either, was he.” Lizzielupton9 commented, “It’s when you carry something in front of you. Say a tray of drinks maybe…”
Beetledryve said: “My theory is that the tray she was holding was obscuring her view of the dog as she rounded the corner. The dog shouldn’t be there.” And Julie said, “Please keep your dogs near or under the table.”
L3uddyholly asked “why is the dog right in the middle of the sidewalk?” And user4960039339470 added: “Common sense not to block [the] catwalk.” While Shannon chimed in, “Common sense to watch where you’re going.”
Another user, Flutter commented, “who [lets] their dog was lying in the middle of the SIDEWALK.” And Monica added, “Especially when there are waiters walking around with trays with drinks on them and food.”
Hollyllovelock said: “As a waitress we’re always told to look straight ahead when carrying full drinks, like a pint, so it doesn’t spill – she does her job – not at fault.” While Aamberwithsole argued, “As a waitress, you’re also supposed to watch where you’re stepping so you don’t trip or fall over customers.”
Irmela Husic suggested, “Make her pay the broken amount so she can think about where to keep the dog next time.” And Kales_x said, “Some of you have never carried a drink tray.”
Mikeyxy20 joked, “New rule: Dogs and kids are only allowed at Chuckie Cheese and Applebee…that’s it, nowhere else.”
