I deal with idiots for far too little money


So I take your order. I'm careful to listen to what you want, and I key it correctly into the computer. It's my job. I do this for 150+ people a week. I rarely make a mistake, but it does happen and I fix it when I do. But when you order an Admiral's Feast, I order you an Admiral's Feast. Don't bitch at me when you order the wrong meal. I'm not psychic you douche bag. I don't read minds. I take very seriously what you say you would like, my tip is riding on it. I don't go to the computer and decide that I think you would like something else better. I order what you order. Hell, I write it down, just to make sure. So don't tell me this isn't what you ordered when I set the slop down in front of your ugly ass. Don't tell me I heard you wrong, I repeated the order back to you and you confirmed it before I walked away. It's on you. I'll get you something different if you don't want what you ordered, but don't go trying to put it off on me. You try this again, I'm going to punch you in the throat. Repeatedly. Idiot.

At least once every 2 months, I have some moron who orders an Admiral's Feast, and when I take it to him, says, "Wait, whirz ma crab legs?" The moron wanted an Ultimate Feast. I blame illiteracy and the dipshits and Darden who name two distinctly different dinners something that sounds quite similar.

At least they changed the Shrimp Feast to Seaside Shrimp Trio a few years ago! Otherwise it would be 3 meals to screw up. And then what about when they name a promo "Feast" to further complicate things. I never did understand that, with the whole of the English language at their disposal, they still insist on naming things similarly. Plus about a 1/3 of my guests thought it was a "Fest" not "Feast". Chalk another one up for our great public schools.

I swear people do the mix-up on purpose to gain a free meal. And despite being their fault, most get the freebie .. and make us look like complete idiots!

I work at the same red lobster as Ih8mymanager in ky #2707829500 and I would like to say that he is absolutely correct and the man is racist heres what happened a racist family came in to that restaurant and sat down and the server came over to the table in her book she had a picture of her husband and kids her the guest saw the pic (her husband is black) and they told her you are married to a nigger get away from our table and she ran off crying the manager scott mckellen went to the table and instead of making them leave he laughed about it with them and comped there food I swear then he told the staff he didnt want to talk about it and left what an ass!! I deeply encourage anyone to call and tell him how bad of an ass he is 270-782-9500 also the same table would not let a male server run there food because they said he was a faggot!and he laughed and kissed there ass.

And how many different ways can you say, "Maui Luau?"

Sometimes it's the idiot severs who can't read, listen or spell which could be the reason why they are servers!
