Like every other restaurant in the country, we are severely understaffed. It is Sunday, our busiest day of the week, when I am called to the register because a customer wants to talk to the manager.

Customer: “I am very disappointed in this place. I’ve been eating at [Chain Restaurant] for twenty years all over the country and I have never seen one as dirty as this one. There is trash all over the floor…”

She speaks for two solid minutes, repeating herself often.

Customer: “…and there are only a few waitresses running around doing all the work!”

Me: “I’m sorry you are disappointed. The reason for what you’ve experienced is that we are understaffed by about ten servers and half the number of cleaning and kitchen staff we usually have. I promise you the team members we have are doing their best.”

Customer: “Well, then, you should just hire more people!”

I just stare at her for a few seconds.

Me: “Gee, I didn’t think of that. If there’s nothing else you need to tell me, I have to get back to cooking.”

I just left her standing there with her mouth open.
