Really Creped Out

| New York, NY, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Food & Drink

(I am a customer waiting for a table at a chain restaurant that specializes in breakfast. They are having their annual ‘free pancake day’ promotion. The free pancakes are available only for sit-down customers, not takeout. Another customer approaches the hostess station.)

Hostess: “Hi, how many?”

Customer: “Do you do takeout?”

Hostess: “Do you mean for the free pancakes?”

Customer: “Why would you even ask me that?!”

Hostess: “I’m sorry, ma’am; that’s just what everyone else has been asking today.”

Customer: “Well, I’m not everyone else. You have so many other things on your menu; why would you assume I want pancakes?”

Hostess: “I’m sorry. Yes, we do takeout.”

Customer: “Whatever. I don’t even want to eat here anymore. F*** you guys; you disgust me!”
