In the latest installment of his "Late Night" hashtag game, Jimmy Fallon asked his Twitter followers to tweet about their encounters with weird waiters. The hashtag he asked people to use, #myweirdwaiter, was so popular it became a trending topic in half an hour. Fallon read some of the hilarious tweets last night on his show.
The overriding theme was brutal honesty.

Direct quote: "Can you tip me in cash, bro? I think I'm getting fired in about 20 minutes." #myweirdwaiter

And then there was this totally appropriate one:

But it all really came together when Jimmy started singing the song "All By Myself" after reading this tweet:
#Myweirdwaiter Was dining alone and the waiter sang ‘All By Myself’ every time he went past my table.
As if I wasn’t feeling lonely enough.

The inspiration for this hashtag was apparently an experience Fallon himself had at a restaurant. He told the audience that he had gone out to dinner recently and here's what the waiter asked...
My waiter once asked, "Would you like your food now or would you like to wait 30 to 45 minutes?" #myweirdwaiter
