I work at a take-away/restaurant inside a mall. There are several other restaurants next to ours, all clearly seperated from each other. It’s a busy day, we’re short on free tables and I spot two women, eating sushi from the restaurant next door. In this case we have orders to politely tell them to sit down at the restaurant they got their food from, so we can ensure that OUR customers can sit down.
Me: *with a friendly smile* Uhm hello ladies!
*they ignore me and proceed talking to each other*
Me: Excuse me, hello!
They’re still looking the other way, so I step even closer to their table, waving my hand in a friendly way to get their attention. Suddenly one of the women turns her head and yells at me in an annoyed manner.
Women 1: WHAT THE F*** DO YOU WANT?! CAN’T YOU SEE WE’RE EATING?!
Me: *with a forced smile* I am sorry for the interruption ma’am, but I’ve seen you’re a customer of the sushi restaurant next door and-
Women 1: YES I AM! WHAT’S YOUR F***ING PROBLEM? LEAVE US ALONE, WE WANT TO EAT!
Me: Sure ma’am but I have to ask you politely to sit down at the other restaurant.
Both of them first turned white and then bright red.
Women 2: What the f***?! Are you trying to throw us out you stupid b****?!
Women 1: WE PAID FOR THIS FOOD! YOU CAN’T THROW US OUT OF THE MALL! HOW DARE YOU!!!
Me: *still trying to speak in the calmest voice I can manage at this moment* I am sorry for the missunderstanding. I am not throwing you out of the mall, I just have to ask you to sit down at the sushi restaurant with your food, because we have to reserve the tables for the paying customers of OUR restaurant. You’re sitting at [our restaurant name].
They look at me baffled.
Women 2: *after a moment of silence* You mean this is not [sushi restaurant]?
Women 1: WELL HOW THE F*** ARE WE SUPPOSED TO KNOW THIS IS NOT [sushi restaurant]?!
Me: *with the sweetest sugary voice* Well, maybe because of the almost one metre sized sign on the wall that says [our restaurant] right behind your heads?
They then stormed off, leaving their sushi behind, complaining how rude I was.
