Customer Rejects Fancy Steak, Offers It To Friend, Won't Pay For New One

This could potentially divide folks. On the one hand you've got plenty of customers looking to save a dime that also don't really care about the quality of a meal as long as it's edible, and would gladly eat the extra food being offered to them. On the flip side though, if restaurants were to let customers just reject pricey meals, offer them to friends, and then get another free meal in the process that could end up really adding up for the restaurants. You be the judge though, was this restaurant in the wrong, or was their decision totally reasonable? 

Customer rejects a fancy steak, offers it to friend, won't pay for new one. | AITA telling customer he has pay new steak, if he's let his friend eat his meant be sent back? Not hole So l'm head chef place specialises steaks group maybe 5 fellas all order pretty expensive steaks. All steaks go out and shortly after waiter comes back asking new one because over- done say yes but she need take wrong steak them before do anything.

Toxic Bar Owner Gets Outed By Employee To The Tune Of $50,000

This bar owner sounds like they were an absolute nightmare to be around. Not only were they walking around with a complete disregard for how one is supposed to legally run a bar, but they eventually fired an employee over a whole load of BS. Fortunately, the employee kept their wits about them, and ended up getting the bar shut down, due to all the BS that was occurring.

New Manager Gives Resident Homeless Guy A Shot

This new manager did their part to break the cycle of homelessness and help out the guy camped out behind their restaurant by giving him a job. Reminds us of this donut shop manager who handled a customer's angry review. Here are some wholesome memes to go with the theme of people helping each other out.

Chipotle Educates Vegetarian On Twitter

Chipotle was there to save the day for an oblivious vegetarian who apparently had no idea that chorizo is in fact meat. What would the world do without Becky! So many vegetarians might be out there unknowingly eating meat cause they thought that chorizo was in the clear.

Dumb Boss Cuts Chef's Overtime, Ends Up Paying Anyway

In order to get things done, you need people to work for you. And in order for people to work for you, you need to pay them. It's a simple formula, but managers have an extremely hard time grasping that. Why is it so difficult? Here's another incompetent manager who forbid overtime and ended up paying for it.

Customer Reports Ordering Issue On Restaurant's Site, Site Comes Undone

Man, to have been the tech support involved with this conundrum. What started as an innocent enough update from the customer about the online ordering system not working, ended up evolving into a full on mess. Technology can be wildly frustrating like that. One little piece being moved around can bring the whole dang tower toppling down. 

Check out some more tech support drama with this belligerent customer who wouldn't cooperate with tech support.

Twitter Thread: Cheesecake Factory is A World of Contradictions

Anyone can tell you that The Cheesecake Factory is a building full of paradoxes. It's like it's telling you with all its heart that it wants to be fancy with all the lighting and the columns, and then you sit down and drink out of a plastic cup. Cheesecake is great, but the place itself really makes you think "how does this place still exist?" Maybe it fits the bill of "a place people can agree to go to." @MaxKreigerVG got extremely deep about America's gaudiest Cheesecake vendor.

Food Served on Everything But Dishes

Sure, presentation is important in fancy restaurants, but who wants to pick their dinner out of a comb? You can't blame people for trying something new, but you can totally blame a restaurant for serving a hamburger on a brick and charging an extra five bucks. There are loads of things restaurants try to use instead of dishes.

Shady Manager Won't Train Employee On How To Comp Meals

Man oh man, for anyone that's ever worked in the industry and encountered a shady manager who insisted on being a disagreeable, genuinely unlikeable person, this story will resonate. Terry sounds like a waking nightmare of a human being. Fortunately, this employee was able to out him for all of his antics in the end. The fact that he didn't pay them for three months as well is inconceivable!

Karen Customer Wants Tip Back, Waitress Refuses

Love it when Karen asks to speak to the manager, and the manager ends up having the employee's back. As the waitress describes in this particular scenario, it was a lose-lose from the beginning. Thirsty husband insisted on having his beers, and Karen was having none of that. So, the waitress was doomed before she could even address the situation. A situation that was clearly destined to spiral out of control.

Diner Regular Gets What She Ordered, Pitches Hysterical Fit

Just cause you're a regular doesn't mean that you get a free pass for treating the hard working staff anything less than great. There's just some kind of mentality that seeps into the mind of a regular (sometimes), where they think that they can trouble the waiter/bartender because they've been there so many times, and leave a decent tip. Enough is enough. Sounds like these ladies did not make their return after staging a very unnecessary public freakout.

Bold and Mistaken Customers Who Were at the Wrong Store

Customers get can get extremely indignant when they believe that a fast food employee is "denying their rights" or whatever. But when the dust settles, and the guy has threatened to call the cops over being denied a reheated fish taco, nothing hits quite harder than "dude, this is a McDonalds." If it's not already obvious, customers make some ridiculous demands.

Lying Karen Gets Decimated By Owner's Response

Honestly this whole party sounds like an absolute nightmare to serve. They were loud, rude, horribly messy, and terrible liars. It's not uncommon for a Karen to lie to a restaurant owner's face, causing some revenge to unfold. When bad customers try to strike back in the reviews section, they don't realize that some owners have all the time in the world to respond.

Dine N' Dash Diva Gets Her Comeuppance

Man, oh, man this young lady named Dee was on an entitled tear. She had the audacity to go out for nice meals and many drinks with her friends, and then ditch them whenever the bill arrived. Not only is that inconceivably rude to people she called her "friends", but it's also insanely insensitive to the folks working at the restaurant just trying to make ends meet. Fortunately, Dee's friends were able to teach her just the kind of lesson she needed.
