People Are Getting Stupider and Stupider

It wasn't busy last night but I get this table about 9ish. The couple sit down and the guy orders a filet with mashed potatoes and au jus on the side with a skewer of shrimp. Okay so his wife or date or whoever orders the mushroom balsamic chicken but without the mushrooms. Yeah sure....

They get the dinner and I saunter over there a couple of minutes and the guy says the filet is bacon wrapped. Well yeah I answer. But he says because of his religion he cannot eat pork.

Well sir, we will cook you up a new one but you never did tell me and it says on the menu bacon wrapped. ASSHOLE!!!!!! No of course I didn't really say that. Supervisor goes over and explains to him that all filets come bacon wrapped and it says even on the menu.

Now he gets one for free even though the guy was a complete moron.

Just the other day the supervisor tells me that someone ordered a filet but left off the mignon cause she wanted a big steak , not a mignon size which in French can be construed as tiny. She got the filet but said she wanted a Ribeye which of course is not a filet. Her reply was like I mentioned she ordered filet leaving the mignon off hoping she would not get a small steak. She thought even though she ordered a filet that she would get a bigger cut of meat by leaving the mignon off. Huggghhhh?????????????

WTF , I mean I am having a hard time explaining that one!!

Another one on the house!

People are getting ridiculous these days!

I will never understand people, no matter how long I stay in the industry or how many psych classes I take in college.

I don't think people are getting stupider, they are just getting smarter to the fact that if they act stupid they can get their meal for free. Why be honest and pay for your food when you can screw someone over and get your meal on the house by feigning ignorance?

Chris...yes you are absolutely right! Rather than stupider they are getting smarter.

Lone Waitress...I will never understand them either so the best thing is not to try understanding them.If I actually tried then I would have been out of waiting long ago. It is just a game.

Hi Brit...yea imagine that! Free stuff for being stupid.I wonder if it is the stupid people who save the most money too? Hehe

The "mignon" woman leaves me speechless. That is the poster child for stupid. WOW.

As for the other guy - if the menu said bacon wrapped - then he would've been paying for his replacement steak. For people with dietary restrictions such as bacon that word JUMPS off the menu - he didn't miss it. Free stuff for being stupid. Who knew.

I couldn't do it.

Waiter Extraordinaire said...

SkippyMom...I would have had him pay for it as well.Not sure why for his stupidity he got a freebie but it certainly did not make a difference in the pitiful gratuity he left. I couldn't do it either. Where are some people's scruples??

There are people out there that do it just because they know they can get away with it.
I say, if it's a mistake that is not justified, i.e. bacon on the menu. then he pays. Would you like a second steak at $32 sir? aahh no I'll just remove the bacon. OK
What is the world of dinning coming to?

Chef's kitchen rant...I am with you on that one. Especially if it says right on the menu.Shouldn't have got that one free at all.People will see what they can get away with these days. It is sickening.
