(I’m a chef at a Filipino restaurant. My boyfriend, his friend, and my sister, are also on duty with me. A customer in his late 20s comes in.)
Me: “Hello, sir! How are you today?”
Customer: “Hey, babe. Are you free tonight?”
Me: “Do you have something you want to order?”
(The customer gets angry.)
Customer: “Look, I just asked you if you had any plans tonight! Yes or no?!”
Me:“Sir, I have a boyfriend. If you don’t want to order anything, please leave.”
Man: “Ha! What are you gonna do? Huh! Your little boyfriend ain’t gonna do anything to me!”
Me: “Hannibal! B.A.! Face!”
(My boyfriend, his friend, and my sister start walking towards the man.)
Boyfriend: “B.A.? Will you please escort this man out of the premises?”
(My friend walks towards the customer, cracking his knuckles. The customer runs out of the restaurant.)
Boyfriend: “I love it when a plan comes together!”
Sister: “Shut up…”
(Two customers enter at the same time. One is a woman, and the other is a man in his 70s. I get their scripts ready. As the woman is done first, I send her up to the tills while I finish with the man. Since there is another customer at the tills, I end up putting the man through before the woman is served.)
Woman: “I was here first! How come he is served before me? What does he have that I don’t?
(The man responds without a second thought.)
Man: “Raw sex appeal.”
(If I was allowed to discount scripts, I would have given him his for free.)
