Some customers prefer to learn by experience, rather than listen to the waitstaff who know what they’re talking about. This customer chose that route, and was quite displeased with her experience.
You can’t please everyone, which is especially true when it comes to food service gigs. No matter how long you’ve been waiting tables, there will always be those customers who ruin their own day by not understanding what they’re ordering. Some customers will order a burger, then get upset because this establishment makes it differently than their favorite diner!
Good waiters understand that some diners need guidance as they order. However, this person, u/Weasel_Cannon, told their story of working at a breakfast chain and trying to determine what this confused customer really wanted to eat. They tried their hardest to quiz her, asking her which toppings she wanted and confirming that she wanted her food plain. The OP shrugged their shoulders and put in her order, and of course, this lady was not happy with what she ordered. Check out the OP’s entire story below, plus comments from people who had similar customer experiences!
Up next, these empowered workers were so confident in themselves that they told their annoying bosses, “Fire me, I dare you.”
