Listen, I don't know what the conventional understanding is of "manual labor." I'm sorry you feel offended that a waiter would intrude on the term. But it doesn't seem obvious to me that picking up and carrying trays of food back and forth from a kitchen all day isn't manual labor.
i think you are being intentionally obtuse, at least about the common understanding of the term if not your ability to plausibly stretch the definition.

You are also, though i'm sure its not your intention, showing a real lack of respect for the physical suffering that many people that do manual labor endure.
