Serving A Couple Of Bad Seeds

, , , , , , | Right | June 29, 2019

(Two women ordered cocktails from me, which I garnished with lemons. I come back later on with the check and one of them, eyes wide, is holding a lemon seed.)

Woman: “I almost swallowed this.”

(I look at her blankly.)

Me: “Lemons have seeds.”

Woman: “It was in my drink!”

Me: “I… I don’t know what to tell you.”

(She and her friend exchange shocked looks. I walk away — out of sight — and tell some coworkers about it, and they agree that the woman is being ridiculous. To try to placate her, I come back and make up an apology.)

Me: “I’m sorry about that. I spoke to the bartenders about it, and I’m sure they’ll be more careful next time.”

Woman: “I was gagging on it!”

Me: “Do you want me to get a manager?”

Woman: “Yeah.”

(My manager talks to them. I ask him afterward what they said to him.)

Manager: “They asked me for a discount on their bill, and I told them, ‘No, absolutely not. I don’t know if you’re aware, but lemons are a fruit, and they have seeds in them.’”

(Glad my manager was on my side!)
