Mind Your Manners, Mommy

| London, UK | Top

(The restaurant I work in offers discount vouchers when customers subscribe in the website. In this case, the voucher was 2 courses for 10. After receiving her bill, a lady comes to me and starts arguing.)

Customer: “Why is my discount £3 when the voucher is for £10?”

Me: “Ma’am, the voucher does not give you £10 off your bill. It gives you the two courses for £10.”

Customer: “No, no! The voucher says £10!”

(After explaining the promotion for nearly 10 minutes, the manager joins in to help. Finally, the customer’s friend realizes the point of the promo and explains it.)

Customer: “Oh! I see now.”

Customer’s 8 year-old son: “Mooooom, it’s time for someone to apologiiiize!”

Not A Fan Of The Man With A Plan

(I am taking an order from a couple. I work in a high-end steakhouse.)

Me: “What can I get you?”

Customer: “I’ll have the ribeye. Medium-rare. Bring the steak sauce out BEFORE my steak. I don’t like to wait on someone to bring it.”

Me: “Okay. What side item would you like?”

Customer: “I’d like the apples. I want them HOT, because I want to melt butter on them. Butter YOU will bring me.”

Me: “Sir, our apples are served hot.”

Customer: “Not every time! Don’t mess with my system!”

Me: “Okay.”

Customer: “And a cup of the french onion soup. That’s all.”

Customer’s wife: “Jeez, honey. You want her to dice your onions for you soup, too?”

Customer: “You just don’t get my system!”

This Vegetarian Is A Red Herring

Customer: “I’d like your chicken caesar wrap, please. With no chicken or bacon bits.”

Me: “Are you a vegetarian?”

Customer: “Yes, why?”

Me: “Well, I just wanted you to know that the caesar salad dressing has anchovy paste in it.”

Customer: “So?”

Me: “Anchovy is a kind of fish.”

Customer: “I said I was vegetarian, not vegan.”

The Brewery Isn’t The Only Thing That’s Micro

Customer: “What sort of soda do you carry?”

Me: “We have organic root beer-”

Customer: “Does that taste like root beer?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “Okay, I’ll take one of those.”

(I go get her root beer and bring it back. It’s in a glass bottle. The woman stares at the bottle.)

Customer: “This root beer. It doesn’t have alcohol in it, does it?”

Me: “No, it does not.”

Customer: “It says ‘beer’ on the side.”

Me: “That’s part of the name.”

Customer: “But, it says ‘micro-brewed’ on the side.”

Very Sake Customers

Me: “Hi, what would you like to order?”

Customer #1: “I want a salmon roll. It comes with salmon inside…wrapped in rice and seaweed.”

Me: “Sure. That is how salmon rolls always come, anyway.”

Customer #2: “I would also like a spicy tuna roll. Just spicy tuna…wrapped in rice and seaweed.”

Me: “Okay, that’s how all of our rolls come. You can just say the name of the roll.”

Customer #1: “Oh, and I’ll also have a cucumber roll…with cucumber inside, wrapped in rice and seaweed.”
