As far as Mother's Days go, today wasn't all that bad. It was endless parties in my section. I saw more ugly hats than I believed existed. What is it with UGLY hats on Mother's Day? We're talking hats seen any other time would be considered Halloween costume material. Bizzare.
I had one of the most ignorant and obnoxious guests that I've had in a long time today. She asked for something that I could not give her, and I explained nicely that we could not do that. She pitched a fit, insisting that I bring it the way she wanted it (which was an impossibility). I kindly explained a second time that we are unable to do that. She kept on pitching a fit, all the while I tried to diffuse. The people at her table were enormously embarrased for her. After she left, her son (who manages a restaurant in another part of town) apologized profusely to me for her actions, and then left me a fat 20% tip on a sizeable check. She complained about everything throughout the meal, returning perfectly good food, and made obnoxious and petty requests. Sometimes adults are worse than children. To really make things strange, her last "discussion" with me was her trying to convince me to come to her church someday. She wins my wingnut of the day award.
