    How To Give Customers The Crepes

    | Poughkeepsie, NY, USA | Food & Drink

    (The restaurant phone rings.)

    Me: “Thank you for calling [restaurant]. How may I help you?”

    Customer: “Yes, I’m calling to take a survey for my free short stack of pancakes.”

    (On receipts, there is a number to call for surveys, but she has called the restaurant.)

    Me: “Ma’am, I’m sorry, but you appear to have called the wrong number. You are supposed to call the number on your receipt, not the restaurant number.”

    Customer: “No! I’m taking this survey over the phone right now! Give me your manager!”

    (I proceed to call the manager, who comes up and takes the phone. I notice a woman talking into the phone and hear the exact voice I was talking to.)

    Me: “[Manager], this woman is actually sitting in the restaurant!”

    Manager: *into the phone* “One moment, ma’am.” *hangs up, then turns to me* “Where is she sat?”

    Me: *points over to her table* “Right there.”

    (He proceeds to walk over to the table with me in tow.)

    Manager: “Excuse me, ma’am. You have to exit the restaurant before you can claim your free pancakes.”

    Customer: “HOW DID YOU KNOW THAT WAS ME?! YOU STALKERS! I’M CALLING THE POLICE!” *storms out, red faced and embarrassed*
