"Someone else took their food out, but I go to do the check-back and ask if everything's OK with their meal after a few minutes.  He then goes, "No, my meal didn't come with any sauce", to which I reply "I'm sorry, what sauce would you like Sir?" [...] He goes "Mustard, Dijon Mustard" like he's James Bond."

'I am not paying!': Rude dude demands dijon mustard under duress of displeasure

It's okay to feel a little bit sentimental about your favorite type of sauce. I, for one, am a ketchup guy through and through, you won't catch me far away from a little red bottle that's packed with that sweet tomato-y goodness. Sure, the actual contents of ketchup are probably like 80% sugar, 19% vinegar, and 1% ketchup but that's not something that bothers me in the slightest.

‘Stop wasting time and follow the job order’: Service rep tries to save rude customer from order error and complies with their arrogant response

It's only natural for a customer service rep to try and save you from a grave error. In most situations, they would have no requirement to do so, but ensuring that they have a happy customer receiving the desired product will make their job easier in the long run, no matter how altruistic they intend to be, by correcting a response. There's nothing worse than being contacted by an angry customer insisting that they didn't order exactly what they ordered and received. In this situation, people c…

Entitled Cafe Owner Tangles With POS Vendor and Loses, Lives to Regret Their Choice of Words

When you're largely dependent on a specific ‘something’ to keep your business running smoothly, it's never a good idea to upset the people running that thing or treat them poorly. Unfortunately, entitled business owners have yet to learn that they shouldn't mess with these people, or their business could go under. On the other hand, it's fortunate for us because it makes for some great stories. This particular story was just posted to Reddit's r/maliciouscompliance subreddit by user u/nobjangle…

Thanks to retrogressive policies like “The customer is always right" we have conditioned all of these entitled people in the world to think that they can get everything their way. The sad thing is that they are often completely right and they have this worldview reinforced time and time again by constant arse ki…

These server memes exemplify the trials and tribulations of the restaurant worker experience. They express frustration towards people that arrive right before closing, customers who try to flag you down even though you're not their designated server, making mistakes on the job, and fashioning polite smiles so that you can get a decent tip from difficult patrons.

Server Memes For Restaurant Workers Who Are Over It

Working at a restaurant can be stressful and tiring, to say the least. There can be pushy customers, aggressive managers , and, as Mad TV's Bon Qui Qui once yelled, “complicated orders.” As a server, you have to ensure being on your feet all day every day, along with the limitations of your own memory and the endless lists of dietary restrictions (many of which don't even sound real). And on top of it all, you are expected to smile your way through the pain so that you can maybe, if you're luck…
