Difficult Diners

January 17, 2008

in Diner Stories

The owner of a popular, reasonably priced restaurant told me this one. It’s about an unbelievably “difficult” couple they had at their establishment several years ago.

This couple, a man and a woman who were pushing middle age (not kids, anyway) ordered two very reasonably priced meals. When the meals came and the man took a few bites he called over the server and said “This meal is undercooked.” The server offered to take it back and cook the meal more or to substitute something. At that, the man said, “NO, I’M GONNA EAT IT, I’M JUST NOT GONNA PAY FOR IT.”

easy way to handle that -you pull the plate from the table and ask him if he would like more bread the cheap ass

I had a similar situation with a table that ordered wine, then complained it was bad, and finally told me not to take it back saying " you're just going to cook with it." He expected to keep it for free.

I kindly explained that since we owned the wine and if he didn't want it that we will do whatever we want with it.

i would have said if u eat it u will pay for it or u will have a fun ride in a police car. and i wouldnt let him leave at all until he paid or his whore wife. hopefully if it wa undercooked and if it was pork or chicken he got massive food pisoning. i hate ppl like that ugh they make wanna spit in their food when u have strep lol
