When at a restaurant and the server introduces themselves by name, do you use their name when trying to get their attention?
Never. I forget their name as soon as they say it.
I usually never address them by either, I might say sir, or miss, or ma'am, but that's about it.
I don't call out anything, so really neither, but I don't think I'd use their name in conversation with them either. I just try to get their attention with eye contact or a hopefully unobtrusive (to other diners) hand wave.
Herr Ober, bitte.
Show off. Lol
Pointer, middle, And thumb goes up in the air (like the European style of counting to three), and I make eye contact and raise my eyebrows.
Some places they never do. However, it would feel weird speaking to them by name and honestly they'd be weirded out. That's my opinion. I don't say "yo waiter or waitress, but I get your point. I normally would just say excuse when they come by.
That would be so awkward.
If they take the time to introduce themselves, then out of respect, I will use their name. It is a sign of someone who loves what they do.
I hear them say their name, but I don't bother to remember it. If I need their attention I use hand signals.
I use their name.
If I remember it. Works better than flicking peas at them.
