I used to speak to my own grandparents in a 'younger' voice. When I was a child and got to talk to Grandma and Grandpa on the phone, I remember I would talk less like myself and more like a younger kid. I don't know why for sure, but maybe it's because our grandparents don't really see us as grown-up, so we tried not to sound like it. Maybe your waitresses talk like that because it triggers in their minds that they're talking to a grandparent, which makes them feel like they should sound younger. Now that my grandparents talk to me like an adult, I talk to them like an adult. My point is, I don't think they speak to you that way to be condescending or disrespectful. They probably don't even realize they're doing it.
