Not Loafing Around With That Special  

, , , , , | Right | November 22, 2019

(I work at a diner that’s connected to a hotel. The front desk is in the diner. A man is checking in at the front desk, and I’m doing prep in the kitchen in front of the window that sees into the dining area.)

Customer: “Hey, do you have any more of the meatloaf special?”

Me: “Yeah, we’ve got plenty. Want some?”

Customer: “Nah, I just want to go to bed. Will there be some leftover tomorrow?”

Me: “Yeah.”

Customer: “Can I get the special price tomorrow?”

Me: “Yeah, you can get the special price, plus a dollar.”

(He huffed and finished checking in, then left. The front desk girl came over laughing and told me she’d told him the same thing, but he told her to stay out of it before asking me.)
