A huge number of us have worked a restaurant job at some point in our lives, maybe for a little while, maybe for years or even decades.

There’s a good reason for that – people love restaurants. We literally have to eat, and we want to do it in a fun and easy way if we can afford to. So we interact with cooks and servers and hosts and cashiers and bussers and the like all the time – but don’t you wonder what they might not be telling you?

Here are 11 real confessions from hosts.
