Repeated Mis-Steak

, | Killeen, TX, USA | Working | August 20, 2013

(My husband and I have just finished looking over the menu. I decide I want my usual steak order if available.)

Me: “Is there prime rib available?”

Waitress: “Yes there is; eight or ten ounce?”

Me: “Eight ounce, please.”

(The server walks away without asking how I would like my steak cooked. She returns 10 minutes later.)

Waitress: “I’m sorry. How would like your ribeye steak cooked?”

Me: “I ordered prime rib. Medium rare, please.”

Waitress: “Oh yes, prime rib! Of course.”

(Our food comes about 20 minutes later.)

Waitress: “Here is your ribeye steak.”

Me: “I ordered prime rib.”

Waitress: “You did? Oh, okay.”

(The waitress takes the plate back. 10 minutes later, the manager arrives with the same steak.)

Manager: “Hi, what was wrong with your ribeye steak?”

Me: “I ordered prime rib.”

Manager: “Oh, okay. Let me change that for you.”

(Despite the manager intervening, my steak does not come out for another 30 minutes.)

Waitress: “I am so sorry; I have no idea how I messed that up! Here’s the check!”

(Incredibly, the waitress has still put “ribeye” on the check.)

Husband: “They really wanted you to get the ribeye!”
