Don't hassle the waitress

in General Discussion edited January 2014
A good friend of mine was working her way through university, studying to be a lawyer..( God help us ).

Anyway, to support herself she took to working in a high class restaurant. ( I won't name the establishment )

One day, she told me that she had had a run in with a very obnoxious customer who would single her out for very rude remarks & other unsavoury gestures.

The nicer she was, the more testy he would become.

Finally she burst into tears and sat in a corner of the kitchen crying her eyes out.

In between sobs, she told the chef, who listened compassionately to her story.

Then a little twinkle filled the chef's eyes.

"Don't worry about it..I will give him a sample of my "Mystery Dish" called " Pisce Le Rougue "

He ordered her out of the Kitchen while he prepared his dish.

A few minutes later she approached the obnoxious customer who was smoking a cigar and presented him with a small plate of "delights" that had been lightly fried in batter and were roughly three inches in circumference.

He wolfed them down & asked for the recipe.

She returned to the kitchen with the empty plate.

" Did he enjoy them ? " he asked

" Yes & he wanted the recipe "

The chef smiled and told her to tell him it was a "family secret that he couldn't divulge", but all she could tell him that they were

" as easy as piss to make "

I leave the rest to your imagination

    it never fails to amaze me why anyone would mess with a person that handles your food and drinks out of eye shot. dumb asses. for the most part, they deserve whatever comes their way IMHO. i discovered long ago that there are way too many assholes in this world. i know, big suprise. that's part of the reason i stayed behind the bar and away from waiting tables as much as possible. something about having that bar between you and the customer gives you some sort of power of not having to put up with as much bullshit. in fact, looking back on it years later, it's quite amazing the kinds of things i was able to get away with without being fired.

    I used to manage a take-out only pizza place. I dealt with people so rude it would make your hair stand up on end. We would have 40 orders in line to fill, and guys would threaten me with violence if I didn't "get their goddamed fu**ing pizza made pronto".

    They got extra special ingredients in their pizzas. Bad ones.

    I used to be an esspresso jockey . .. way back when, in SF . . . and there was an amazingly arrogant obnoxious jerk who came in regularly .

    I started with just a little Tobasco sauce in his Esspresso . . . but he didn't seem to notice . . . he returned a couple of them but never really noticed the second time . . until finally, almost 30% of the demi-tasse was filled with Sauce

    all that he said when returning it was that it was terrible and tasted strangely like Tobasco Sauce

    But, thankfully the jerk stopped frequenting our establishment
