🕸️ Crawling the Web

Here is what else is happening across the ‘net.

🐟 An Applebee’s server on TikTok posted a viral video that dives into the struggles of working in the service industry. For example, she says a customer asked her if the restaurant’s fish and chips contained fish.

☕ Coffee orders come in all shapes and sizes, just like the people who place them. While baristas at both chains like Starbucks and local spots can privately complain about customers’ elaborate orders, some have taken to the internet to call out their regulars.

🌯 If you love the barbacoa at Chipotle, this one’s for you. A Chipotle grill worker says some things are fresher than others and has viewers debating in the comments section about what the truth is

🍸 There are all sorts of faux pas you can commit at a bar, but one woman says a bar banned all its customers from ordering cocktails after she asked for a French 75

🏨 As soon as a Hilton Hotel guest made it inside her room after checking in, she realized there was a big problem.

🔍 From the Daily Dot archive: Telegram is supercharging conspiracy theories across the planet.
