Waitress' TikTok compares Gen Z and 'boomer' customers

An 18-year-old waitress is sparking an online debate after sharing a video of how two different groups of customers treated their tables. The teenager, named Kaitlyn Brande, originally shared the clip to TikTok, where it has since received nearly 1 million views. Her quick video shows two tables, the first reportedly left behind by older customers, who she calls “boomers". The waitress proceeds to show that the “boomer” table is covered with plates, food and napkins left behind after the group’s meal. Then she shows the “Gen Z” table, which has all of its plates stacked together neatly — with considerably less trash. “I’m not saying I expect people to ever stack their plates like that, because hey, I’m a person too,” Brande says. “All I’m saying is it was cool and helpful of the younger people, and I appreciated it". Several commenters on TikTok seemed to agree with Brande’s point, praising the teen for pointing out that just because someone is younger, it doesn’t mean they don’t have manners. Others seemed to disagree that age had anything to do with the situation, commenting instead that former service industry workers tend to be more mindful of their mess
