From The Mouth Of Babes, Part 15

, , , , , , | Right | November 11, 2022

I work at a buffet. The owner is a crusty old Chinese man who allows us to not give any f***s when dealing with problem customers. We allow children aged four and under to eat free. A woman comes in with a child who easily looks six or seven. You pre-pay when you enter the restaurant.

Me: “One adult and one child — that’s [total].”

Customer: “Excuse me! Just one adult! My child eats free!”

Me: “That’s only for children aged four and under, ma’am.”

Customer: “My child is four!”

Not caring, I lean down to the child.

Me: “How old are you, sweetie?”

Child: *Proudly* “I’m six and a half!”

Me: *Standing back up* “I applaud your child on knowing not to lie. That will be [same total], please.”

Customer: “Well, looks like we’ll be eating elsewhere! Would you like to explain to my child why that is, too?!”

Me: *Lean down to the child again* “Because Mommy is cheap!”
