We’re Closed Eight Ways From Sunday

, , , | Right | October 12, 2016

(It’s Father’s Day. It’s been about 20 minutes since we’ve had new customers, and it being five minutes before we close, my manager gives the kitchen the OK to shut down. Not one minute after the kitchen has closed, a group of three walk in.)

Me: “I’m sorry, folks, we just closed.”

Man: “But it’s Father’s Day!”

Me: “I know, and I’m sorry, but we close at eight on Sundays.”

(They start complaining about how it’s a special day for him and that we should serve them, when the man suddenly looks at me.)

Man: “But it’s not eight yet!”

Me: “It’s five minutes before…”

(They walk out grumbling.)

Manager: “If they wanted to make it such a special day for him, why couldn’t they get him a steak and cook it for him themselves?”
