Getting To The Sauce Of The Problem, Part 3

, , , , | Right | July 22, 2020

A man comes in and orders fives sides of tartar with his food. Usually, we have little plastic cups for tartar, but we are out. I ask the kitchen for the tartar and they put it in a nugget box like we usually do when we run out of little plastic cups. I put the box at the bottom of the bag and give the guy his food.

Me: “Here you go, sir. Your tartar is in the nugget box.”

Customer: “That’s fine. Thank you.”

Maybe fifteen minutes later, he comes back to the counter with fries and nugget box in hand and practically shoves the box of tartar in my face.

Customer: “I am livid. Does this look acceptable to you?”

I look to make sure the box isn’t falling apart or anything and see no issues with the box.

Me: “I’m sorry, sir. What seems to be the problem?” 

Customer:This! Why is my tartar sauce in a box? How hard is it to put it in d*** cups?!”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but we’re out of sauce cups and that’s the best way to package it without them.”

Customer: “What the f*** is wrong with you?!”

He slammed the full, open box of tartar sauce onto the counter and it splattered all over me and my counter, and then he dumped his entire container of fries on the floor. He ran out of the store and flipped me off once he was outside the door while every customer and all my coworkers stood and watched this happen.
