Acting Sour About The Sweet And Sour

, , , | Right | March 31, 2021

Customer: “I’ll have the sweet and sour pork.”

Me: “Would you like that as a lunch special or a main meal?”

Customer: “I’ll have a main meal. I don’t eat rice.”

Me: “That’ll be $16.50, then.”

Customer: “No, shouldn’t it be $8?”

Me: “Sorry, no, the $9.90 price is only for the lunch specials, and for the lunch special, you have to get it with rice or noodles.”

Customer: “Well, I don’t eat rice or noodles, so what are you going to do about it?”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “I said, ‘What are you going to do about it?’!”

Me: “I’ve presented you with your options; it’s your choice.”

Customer: “I want the sweet and sour pork, but I refuse to pay $16.50 for it. So, what are you going to do about it?”

Me: “Like I said, I’ve given you your options; other than that, I’m not going to do anything.”

Customer: *Very whiny tone* “But your prices are ridiculous! I only want to pay $8! Besides, your food isn’t even that good! I should be entitled to pay only $8!”

Me: “Miss, either you pay the full amount or you leave; those are your options.”

She did give up and leave once she realised I wasn’t budging.
