That Hateful Eight

, , , , | | Right | May 18, 2018

(We offer half-price appetizers if they’re ordered after eight, but they are not half-price if they just pay after eight. A server brings the check to a table at 9:15.)

Guest: “This isn’t showing up half-price.”

Server: “If I rang it in before eight, it’s not part of the half-price apps deal.”

Guest: “Well, I was here after eight, so there’s no way it could have been rung in before then.”

(The server comes to me and asks what to do.)

Me: “If it’s rung in after eight, the discount automatically comes off.”

(The server goes back to the table to tell her that, and I go to the kitchen to grab the ticket with the printed time, take it to the manager, and let him handle it from here. The server comes back and says the woman insists she was there after eight.)

Manager: “Hi, we would be happy to discount this to half-price tonight, but I just wanted to let you know, it only counts if you order it after eight.”

Guest: “Well, I know for a fact I wasn’t here until after eight.”

Manager: “Ma’am, the ticket went back to the kitchen at 7:53.” *shows her the ticket*

Customer: “Well… I was at a funeral! You’re all so insensitive! And I received that stupid appetizer after eight, so that should count for something!”

(We will definitely remember her.)
