Revenge Is A Dish Best Served Cold

, , | Right | June 22, 2021

I specialize in carryout orders and I usually tell customers that we don’t take any more orders thirty minutes before closing time, as people have, more than once, shown up after we closed to get their food. However, our dining room is still open.

I get a call about twenty-five minutes before we close from a woman wanting to place an order. I tell her that, unfortunately, it is too late to order, and she begins to get snippy.

Caller: “We can still dine in but I can’t order takeout?”

Sometimes people order while they’re already sitting in the parking lot, but this isn’t the case.

Caller: “I want to speak to your manager.”

I pass them over.

Manager: “I’ll agree to take the order, as long as you can get here before we close.”

They didn’t show up until almost twenty minutes after we had closed and we let them pay and take their food anyway. I hope they enjoyed their cold food.
