They’ll No Longer Be Serving The Swiss Family Robinson

, , , , | Right | October 5, 2018

(I work in a popular food chain that tends to constantly change up what we offer on the menu.)

Me: “Thank you for choosing [Restaurant]. This is [My Name]. How may I help you?”

Customer: “Uh…” *long pause* “Yeah, uh, can I get a Swiss burger?”

Me: “I’m sorry. We no longer have the Swiss burger.”

Customer: “Uh… Okay… Uh, can I buy a plain cheese burger, and you can make it like a Swiss?”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir. We no longer have the ingredients for it.”

Customer: *clearly sounding annoyed* “Well, what do you have?”

(I start to read the menu to him when he cuts me off.)

Customer: “I just really wanted the Swiss burger. Are you sure you don’t have it?”

Me: “Yes, it was discontinued.”

Customer: “Well, then, I guess you won’t have my business anymore, or my family’s. I’ll tell everyone I know to stay away from this place, since you like to take away my favorite food and refuse to make it for me. I’m calling corporate!
