A restaurant worker explained why servers hate it when customers move tables and chairs — and it actually makes a lot of sense.
Buy, sell or keep? How to decide what to do with a plummeting stock
TikTok user Dez (@dzshc1) posts all sorts of jokes and insider secrets about being a restaurant server. In one of her recent uploads, she blew viewers away by explaining why restaurant staff hate it when customers take it upon themselves to add chairs or move tables closer together.
In the clip, Dez filmed herself playing the role of the customer essentially rearranging the dining room. Then she cuts to a shot of her disappointed face looking out the window of the server station.

Several commenters who identified themselves as former or current servers pointed out how annoying this practice is.
“For those asking if it’s bad,” said one, “it’s like walking into someone else’s house and rearranging their furniture. Just ask for help.
“I loved telling them to back it off,” added another.
“Carpenters… carpenters are the worst,” someone said. “How does your group of 4 become a 14??????”
Part of the reason moving tables and chairs is so inconvenient for restaurant staff is that, as one reviewer put it, everything is organized in a particular way for a reason: safety.
“We have to organize them in such a way that we don’t block the exits in case of an emergency,” the commentator said. “So no, you can’t just do that.”
It also complicates the system put in place to evenly distribute the tables between the servers.
“Worst when they pull 2 tables from 2 diff sections then 1 server goes without a table which means they don’t make as much money,” one viewer wrote.
