Come For The Buffet, Stay For The Curses!

, , , , , | Right | April 25, 2020

(I’m the manager at a buffet restaurant. We have tables for small parties and large parties. Large party tables — ten and more people — require a charge of gratuity added to the payments. A family comes in with eight people. They are very rude with the hostess, so the hostess grabs my attention.)

Me: “How can I help you guys today? What seems to be the problem?”

Customer: “We want this larger table since we are large people.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but if we do give that twelve top to you we will be required to charge a 15% gratuity to your checks, due to us having to compensate the loss of a large party to the servers.”

Customers: “I guess we’ll go somewhere else.”

(I bow my head in respect.)

Me: “If that is your decision.”

(They leave, but then one of the males returns — the husband.)

Husband: “I’d like to talk to you.”

Me: “Yes, sir, I have a reservation I’m assisting at the moment. If you could please wait—”

(He interrupts me even when the other reservation customer is right there.)

Husband: “You just lost a large group of customers. You just lost a lot of money.”

Me: “I understand that, but you did not agree with our policies, and you voluntarily walked out on your own.”

Husband: “I am a man of God!”

(I am taken aback a bit.)

Me: “Oh? I also am a Christian. I don’t get how that is relevant.”

Husband: “I am a man of God! And I curse this establishment!”

Me: “Is this really happening?”
