The Apple Of Discord

, , , , | Right | June 20, 2018

(It is now half an hour after closing, and my last table has finished their meals. While I’d like nothing more than to drop the check and go home, my professional server instincts force me to continue the proper steps of service.)

Me: “Would you like to see our dessert selections this evening?”

Customer: “I would. Do you have carrot cake?”

Me: “No, I’m sorry. We do not.”

(I whisk away and return with the dessert tray and menus, rattling off the cheesecakes, crème brulee, lava and chocolate cakes, etc., and their descriptions.)

Customer: “Do you have an apple crisp of some sort?”

Me: *having not spoke of anything remotely apple* “No… Just the desserts on the tray.”

Customer: “Okay. Just a crème brulee, then!”
