A Hooters waitress has shared some of the inappropriate comments male customers have made to her while she is working, admitting that sometimes they can be ‘extremely disrespectful.’

Leah Fennelly, 23, loves her job at a Hooters in Florida, and says most customers are ‘respectful and nice’ — but there are always a few bad apples who think she and her fellow waitresses are ‘dumb’ and can be treated liked pieces of meat.

‘I’ve gotten the normal comments like “Are you on the menu?” and “I want my wings hot and naked like you.” You name it, I’ve heard it,’ she told the Daily Star.

Leah shared some of these comments in a viral TikTok video, hopping on a popular trend using the song ‘Miami, My Amy’ by Keith Whitley.

‘Real and common statements,’ she captioned the clip.

Though Leah is clearly no fan of such remarks, she doesn’t let them bother her too much — unless customers really cross a line. 

‘I generally tend to laugh it off, but if it is extremely disrespectful… when I am being mistreated, which is very rare, I will get a manager to handle the situation,’ she added.

She has also revealed that customers have asked for her number — even when it’s clear they’re married.

On TikTok, commenters have had mixed reactions, with some shaming the men for their dirty comments — and others seeming to argue that she shouldn’t complain because of where she chose to work.

‘Old men gotta shoot their shot too,’ wrote one.

‘You know where you’re working right?’ asked another.

‘That’s the reason you were hired,’ wrote a third.

But one argued back that these are sometimes the same men who warn, ‘God is always watching you.’

‘It always amazes me how old dudes have no shame at all,’ wrote one.

Ali got some of her coworkers involved to share the tips they made during a day shift at the restaurant. One counted out $294 after working a table of 12, and later added $45 and $60. 

Ali’s total tips for the shift came to $521. 

She got varying amounts from different tables, including one that left a $50 tip.

The federal minimum wage for tipped workers in the US is just $2.13 an hour. That means that if a server makes no tips on a full-day, eight-hour shift, they will only take home $17.04. Servers rely on tips to make up the rest of their earnings.
