Eating out at a restaurant is typically a nice experience.
However, now and then something will go wrong while we’re sat enjoying our meal.
From late food arrivals to stubborn customers, and terrible waiters. Here are a few restaurant horror stories.
I once worked as a host in an Italian restaurant. I was the only male host there, with 4 other very beautiful girls as my coworkers/hostesses. One woman wanted her entire meal comped because she claimed her husband wouldn’t stop staring at the hostess throughout their entire meal…
In High School I worked at a regional fast-food franchise and the guy who trained me on drive through was the owner of that store. While he was taking someone’s order he missed an item so when they came back through he offered the woman the item he missed for free, she wanted the whole meal refunded, he refused and she demanded to see the manager, his reply was to say “Sure! Let me get him for you.” and turned in a full circle before saying “Hi! I’m the manager.” She flipped and demanded to see the store manager so he actually repeated his little circle-turn schpeel and she got angry and demanding to speak to someone above him, he replied “Well the owner is here, I can get him.” Turned one last circle, leaned out the window and said “Hi, I’m the owner. Get the out of my Drive Through.”
I work in a bakery/cafe and a woman wanted a $100 house certificate because “that man over there called me a terrible name.” Little did she know “that man” was my manager on his day off. Why would a manager get a day off? He lost his voice.
The entire line overheard and slow clapped her out.
When I worked drive through, I accidentally told a lady a higher price than her actual total. When she arrived at the window, I said “Your total is actually $3.43 instead of $7.47. Sorry about the confusion.” She then asked me if she could have something for free for her “confusion,” and demanded angrily to speak to manager when I refused. Best part: I was the manager. Not a thing she could say to make me give her free food for no reason.
I was managing a fast casual restaurant while I was in school. We had one lady who would always have problems with her food and would always want her money back. So she comes in one day with her whole family and my server says he isn’t going to deal with her since she always has problems. No problem I take her order repeat everything back to her. Then I go to the kitchen and cook every item myself to make sure there is no problems with it. After I bring everything out to them and make sure everything is okay I leave them to their meal. After they have finished almost everything I go back to do clear some plates, guess what, there is a penny sitting right on top of an untouched dish that was for nobody apparently. She wants a full refund for the entire meal. Sorry, I cooked your entire order myself and no there was not a penny there. There is nothing I can do for you. I got yelled at but whatever, it was the last time we saw her.
