You know those people…the ones who think that the world owes them something? I bet you’ve seen one recently. Maybe you overheard a rude customer complaining about prices or a disgruntled delivery man upset about his routes. Sometimes life isn’t fair, but that doesn’t mean you can take it out on others around you! This cashier couldn’t believe the customer trying to take advantage of them…so she shared it on social media!
(I work at a restaurant that gives complimentary chocolate strawberries and baguette roll with a combo. A customer comes up to pay.)
Me: “Unfortunately, ma’am, due to a shortage in Texas we do not have any strawberries.”
Customer: *visual anger rises* “What you mean you don’t have strawberries?!”
Me: “Strawberries are out of season in Texas where we order produce from, so we do not have any in the store. Actually all of the restaurants in Arizona do not have strawberries. I’m so sorry for the inconvenience.”
Customer: “I AM APPALLED! THIS IS ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS! I want a discount on my entire meal!”
Me: “Ma’am, unfortunately I can’t do that because we do not charge you for the bread or strawberries. They come complimentary with the meal.”
Customer: “Where the h*** does it say that?!” *she grabs a menu* “Show me!”
Me: “Right here, ma’am.” *points to and reads the exact line that says.* “Combo comes complimentary with a chocolate dipped strawberry and baguette roll.”
Customer: “Well, then I want a free slice of cheesecake!”
Me: “Ma’am, I’m so sorry. I unfortunately can’t do that. Again, I’m sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you.”
Customer: “I’m calling MY attorney general and you will see me in court for false advertising! Nowhere does it say that it comes with the meal!”
Me: “Would you like me to read the menu to you, ma’am?”
Customer: “NO! YOU’LL SEE ME IN COURT!”
Me: *with a big smile* “Okay, ma’am! Have a nice night!”
Customer: *looks at me and yells* “OKAY!” *smugly walks away*
Me: *turns to the next customer* “Unfortunately we are out of dipped strawberries at the moment. Is that okay, ma’am?”
Next Customer: “Of course it’s okay! It’s only a strawberry!”
Hey, it’s complimentary! Why would she expect it? I bet you still get the baguette roll! What a crazy woman…I can almost imagine the conversation she would have with her “lawyer,” trying to get money out of this ridiculous claim! Too funny!
