Summary
Largey studies the occupational folklore that is peculiar to the restaurant industry and analyzes its correlation with the folklore and values of American culture. He finds that much of the occupational folklore in restaurants arises from the high-stress nature of waiting tables. He believes that folkloric storytelling functions as a release in a stressful industry in which the line between employee and customer is clear and often causes conflict. He concludes by suggesting that storytelling and complaining bring unity to a group that is often the target of much complaint and antagonism from its patrons
