Yellow-Stoney Faces

| Salt Lake City, UT, USA | Time, Tourists/Travel

(I am a busboy at a local high-end restaurant in Salt Lake City, Utah. It’s 15 minutes past closing time; I’m out cleaning tables, when suddenly I’m beckoned over by one of the last holdouts of the night. I notice they are all on their phones.)

Customer: “Excuse me! Can you get our server? ”

Me: “Absolutely, ma’am. I’ll be just one second.”

(I run and grab their server, and go drop off the dishes I collected. On my way back out to the dining room, I run into the server, looking bemused.)

Me: “What did they want?”

Server: *deep sigh* “They wanted a map of Yellowstone Park.”

Me: *laughing* “Really?! They stayed 15 minutes past closing for that? What’d you tell them?”

Server: “I told them we don’t have any, and then they asked me where they could find one. I told them, ‘Probably at a gas station. In Wyoming.’ And they were like, ‘Oh! A gas station! Okay, we’ll go there. Thank you very much!’”

Me: *laughing harder* “Yeah, or they could’ve just found one on the phones they had out in front of their freaking faces.”

Server: “No kidding!”

Me: “Did they tip you well?”

Server: “Not really.”

Me: “F*** them. I hope they never find Yellowstone.”

No Meat In Their Brain, Part 5

| UK | Crazy Requests, Food & Drink, Popular

(Working at a popular fast food restaurant, I get a customer come to my till.)

Me: “Hi, can I take your order?”

Customer: “Just a cheese burger, please.”

(I tell him the price, take the money, and give him his burger. Customer comes rushing back looking sick.)

Me: “Is everything all right?”

Customer: “I asked for a f***ing cheese burger.”

Me: “Yes, that’s what I gave you.”

Customer: “This has meat on it. I’m a f***ing vegetarian; I wanted just the cheese burger.”

Me: “All burgers come with meat unless asked to be removed.”

Customer: “You should have known because I asked for a CHEESE burger.”

Me: “Yes, I know, but that comes with beef unless stated like I just said.”

Customer: “F*** YOU.”

(He storms out leaving the half-eaten burger and I’m left confused as to why we wouldn’t have meat on our burgers.)

The Key Is To Tip

| Salt Lake City, UT, USA | Bad Behavior, Money, Popular

(I work at a local high class restaurant as a busboy. I was out cleaning tables when one of the hosts came up to me.)

Host: “Did you happen to see a hotel key on [table number]?”

Me: “No, I didn’t.”

Host: “Okay. The customer said he swore he left it on the table.”

Me: “Well, if I saw anything, I would have given it to you.”

(Truth be told, I didn’t bus that table. The server actually beat me to it. Out of curiosity, I approached the server later and asked her about it.)

Me: “Hey, did you happen to find a hotel key on [table number]?”

Server: “Yeah. I threw it away.”

Me: “Why?!”

Server: “Because the dude was an a**, and he also didn’t tip me. I’ve only not been tipped three times in my entire career. He can rot.”

(Moral of the story: The wrath of an un-tipped server is strong. Please tip your servers.)
