Garçon [garsɔ̃] is the French word for "boy". In English, and various other languages, it was adopted in the specific meaning of a (male, usually young) waiter, especially of low rank in a larger establishment, who serves customers food or drinks. However, in France, it is considered rude to address a waiter as "garçon"; rather one addresses the waiter as "monsieur".
