Out Of Tune-a With The Menu

| San Jose, CA, USA | Food & Drink, Uncategorized

(I am working as a waitress in a sushi restaurant. A handicapped customer comes in and orders 5 rolls off of our special rolls menu. I bring the customer her food.)

Customer: “What is this?”

Me: “These are the rolls you ordered, ma’am.”

Customer: “I didn’t order these. I don’t eat fish.”

Me: “Ma’am, you specifically pointed at these rolls. The ingredients are mainly tuna and salmon. It is listed on the menu.”

Customer: “I don’t eat fish! You are discriminating against me because I am in a wheelchair. I didn’t order this!”

Me: “Ma’am, this is exactly what you ordered. If you don’t eat fish, you should have ordered chicken or beef teriyaki.”

Customer: “I don’t eat fish! Bring me my rolls!”

Me: “These are your rolls.”

Customer: “I want to talk to your manager.”

Manager: “Ma’am, what seems to be the problem?”

Customer: “Your waitress brought me the wrong rolls. I want my rolls.”

Manager: “This looks to be exactly what you ordered.”

Customer: “I don’t eat fish!”

Manager: “It’s listed with fish on the menu, but okay, we’ll take these back. What would like instead?”

(The customer orders the same rolls.)

Manager: “Ma’am, you just ordered the exact same rolls.”

Customer: “They have fish in them?”

Manager: “Yes.”

Customer: “Is that because I’m handicapped?”

Manager: “No, ma’am.”

Customer: “I’m leaving and I’m not giving you a cent of my money. You shouldn’t falsely advertise. You should say when there will be fish!”

Manager: *to me* “You hungry?”

(Three women in their early twenties come in. I ring up the first two, but the third woman’s credit card is denied.)

Me: “I’m sorry, but your card had been denied.”

Customer: “No, that cant be! There’s no way! Try it again!”

(I swipe the card again, and it once more is denied.)

Me: “It still came up as declined. Do you have another card I could try?”

Customer: “No! This is stupid!”

(One of her friends lend her cash to pay for her meal. As they fill their drinks at the pop machine I overhear her talking.)

Customer: “That is so weird! My card was denied last week. Shouldn’t it be un-denied by now?”

Customer: “Hello, can you tell me where the [item] is?”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry, but I don’t work here. I work across the street at [restaurant].” *I point to my hat with the company logo*

Customer: “Why are you pointing at your hat? I don’t understand. Are you going to take me to the [item] or not?”

Me: “I’m really very sorry, but I don’t work here. I can’t help you.”

Customer: “But you have a name tag!”

(We have run out of sandwiches that had meat and are only left with garden/veggie burgers.)

Customer: “What’s that?”

Me: “It’s a veggie burger, so there’s no meat in it. We call it a garden burger here.”

Customer: “Garden burger? So there are flowers in there?”
