Munich today – News from November 28th, 2022 – Munich

What do you expect when you visit a café, restaurant or bar in Munich? Food and drinks, of course, for which you are happy to pay the bill at the end because it tasted good, maybe even exceptionally good. In addition, an attentive and friendly service that will make you feel welcome. Your expectations will be met – but other guests want more. Much more.

These guests think that with the purchase of a coffee or a menu they have also acquired the right to get as close to the women in the service as they want. Crossing borders begins with lewd remarks, with “accidental” touches on the arm, shoulder or chest. Until you pinch your buttocks. As if robots were serving and not humans. And as if groping were completely normal in gastronomy.

Apparently, this not only has a problem with abusive guests, but also with some colleagues and bosses – who actually consider such border crossings to be normal, included in the wages, so to speak. Read here (SZ Plus) what those affected experience and how they can defend themselves.

So if your waitress seems extremely stressed the next time you visit a café, restaurant or bar, it could be the guest at the next table – or the colleague behind the counter.
