This frustrated server shared his experience with his worst customers yet. How could they behave in such an entitled and demanding manner in front of their kids?
He Knew They’d Be Hard Work
On this day, the Original Poster (OP) welcomed a group of customers into the restaurant.
He figured from the start this particular family (a mother, a father, a son, and a daughter) would be a little difficult, but he never anticipated all the nonsense
A Depressed and Demanding Bunch
The family just appeared depressed in general; they were unpleasant anytime OP tried to speak, not responding to him, cutting him off, or speaking to him in a way that was quite demeaning.
He Would Always Maintain Professionalism
However, OP had faced this before, and he normally doesn’t find it bothersome.
Even when he’s being treated like complete garbage, he would still be polite.
OP asked them if they needed anything just two minutes earlier, but a while later, they pretended and told them that no one had helped them in the previous hour to another server who went nearby.
More Free Bread, Now!
They insisted on having the free bread even though they had already received a basket.
OP had been keeping them informed about the bake time and when a fresh batch would be ready, but they were angry about the delay.
OP requested the mother to repeat her drink order because she had actually murmured it under her breath, but she acted as if OP was an idiot who wasn’t listening.
Could They Get Worse?
OP said that even after all that, things weren’t too bad—at least, not until the dinner arrived.
OP says that he has no problem with returning food, whether it was prepared improperly, burned, or for other reasons.
But things took a turn when the family started requesting modifications and many bizarre additions to the dishes.
OP was reluctant but did his job and took the order with the requested modifications. OP says they requested to add shrimp, mushrooms, and spinach to the spaghetti.
Nothing Was Good Enough
As expected, the family returned a kid’s hamburger, fish and chips, and pasta, making up 3/4 of their entrées.
They Didn’t Enjoy Their “Customized” Dishes
They were returned saying, “I just don’t like it. It tastes awful.
Insulting the Chef
Then they got the audacity to say that OP was the reason for their “horrible food.”
He Was the One to Ask For the Manager
At this point, OP was so irritated that he stood up to leave and asked his manager to approach the table and speak with them.
He Gave Up Trying
Since OP realized it would be pointless to do anything more for that table, he concentrated more on my other tables.
Good, Don’t Come Back!
Finally, when it came to the bill, the mother dared to claim that because it was so expensive, she “won’t be able to eat out for a while.”
Plus, as OP expected, they didn’t tip him anything.
A Shameful Way to Behave
OP says he has never met trashier people like them, and he says that they should be ashamed of themselves for acting like that in front of their kids.
Other’s Shared Experiences With Nightmare Customers
He shared the experience with the Reddit Community, and several Redditors shared their thoughts.
One Reddit user shared their personal experience and wrote, “It reminds me of the time I had a family of 6 all order lobster rolls without checking what the market price was (around $30 each). Well, they got their check and suddenly complained that the lobster meat was not fresh, came from a can, etc and they tipped me $2”
Another Redditor commented, “If they didn’t like the 3 customized entrees then they should’ve gone home to cook!! It’s disgusting when ignorant trashy people do things like this in front of their children. That part ALWAYS UPSETS me even more. Because we all know 90% of the time, the kids will turn into their parents, and the vicious cycle repeats for future generations.”
