I had my first bitch customer today. That didn’t take long.
She walked in, looked at me, seated herself, and yelled her order to the Chef Owner, who happened to be in the dining room. I stopped by her table to see if she wanted something to drink and she said, “I already gave my order to Crissy because I knew you wouldn’t get it right.”
On one hand, she had so many modifications to her order I would have probably looked at her as if she had an extra head right before thinking maybe she should shut the fuck up and order off the menu, but she could have been just a tad bit nicer. The man she was with tried to bark out his order while I was standing there with a handful of plates, but I cut him off and told him I was just getting drink orders. When I returned to the table with their drinks, she informed me they were ready to order, as if I couldn’t figure that shit out on my own. I wanted to kick her in the twat.
There is a group of women who work at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center who list ‘Better than everyone else’ on their resume under ‘Qualifications’. This was one of those women. She seemed to know every third person who walked in and had to stand in the middle of the walkway and tell each and every one of them just how important and stressful her job is (because apparently they are saving humanity at the Historical Center) and how she wished she worked at Walmart since no one expects anyone to succeed there. I hoped she would have said she wished she was waiting tables, because I was full on ready to tackle her ass and get fired for it, but she was a little smarter than I thought.
Anyway, I went to the waitstation and Sam, my trainer, was laughing. She told me to not worry about it because the bitch treats all the staff like they are sub-human.
I got the last laugh, though. I attended to every table except the bitch’s, so Sam was forced to deal with her. She finally caught on when I printed the bitch’s ticket and handed it to her.
“Hey, that’s not fair.”
“Well baby, that’s how I roll. The sooner you learn it, the better off we’ll be.”
I seldom have problem customers twice.
