Dumb and Dumber Came To The Restaurant Last Night

I have a couple of good ones from last night.

The first one is a lady who is waiting for her husband and while doing so orders a frozen margarita. She drinks that and orders another one. She finds out her husband has decided not to come and go out as she says somewhere else with his friends. Sort of makes you wonder about that one.

Anyway she had an escargot before that so now she decides she is going ahead to order dinner and promptly orders crab cakes then a sirloin and dungeness crab entree. With it she orders a Bloody Caesar. After spending an hour eating her meal , she ask for the bill. For a quick moment she heads to the bar to talk with the bartender and comes back to her seat to sign her credit card slip. It is a $96 tab and she leaves me $4 tip! I think what is it with this lady.

She leaves and the bartender calls me over and ask me how many frozen margaritas did she have. It was 2 and she starts to shake her head. She had gone up to the bar to tell her that the Frozen Margaritas had too much ice in them! Duh, it's supposed to have ice in them they are frozen you dingbat! And besides why would she order a second one if she didn't like the first one or at least tell someone about it?

The second customer was a doozy. She is going to order the Prime Rib which we are known for from the right side of the menu. I ask her if she wants anything with it to start and she says salad. Okay I respond , why don't I order you the Prime Rib Classic dinner that includes the salad with it so I can save you some money. This is from the centre page of the menu that has the same Prime Rib with the salad and some vegetables included with it. Sort of like the combo deal you get at a fast food place.

She says no I don't want that prime rib cause the last time I was here I ordered that with the salad and wasn't very happy with it so now I would like this prime rib that was on the right hand side of the page.

I begin to tell her it is the same prime rib. Trust me I explain it is the SAME PRIME RIB. What a moron!

Some people you wonder how they get through life....................

Prime rib lady made me giggle. People are idiots.

It is a classic case of her husband stiffed her, so she stiffed you. Sad really. And btw...that was a LOT of food for one person to eat - was that her husband's credit card I wonder.

The second lady is just a dingbat.

SkippyMom...yeah it was just passed on to me her frustration. Probably was his credit card too.

Waiter Extraordinaire said...

K.H...Oh yeah she was a riot. I was training someone last night and that was a case of see what people you can look forward to meeting. At least they left a fair tip , more than I thought.

Waiter Extraordinaire said...
