I have a WTF moment and in turn question for all of you.
First let me tell you a bit about myself. I am a mother and wife- first and foremost-, a state provided day-care provider, a waitress, and a part-time security guard.
I can't stand to sit still and I love to talk (read: shove my weight/ideas around occasionally).
I was at job #2 a week or so ago when a family of three came in to have a nice, quiet, sit-down meal at my restaurant.
They ordered two dinners for the parents and one 'small appetite' breakfast for the child, and were very courteous during and after the meal.
What's the problem you ask?
Well, "The food was 'wonderful' but, our daughter didn't eat all of her mea l- is there any way you can take it off the bill?"
I stammer/manage to get out that since she ate half of it and since there wasn't anything wrong with the food-or service- I couldn't refund the meal price. (It was 3.95 BTW)
At that moment the mother proceeds to tell me that "She does this every time we go out to eat. She says she's hungry but will only eat half of it! She's just wasteful!"
My question is to any of you servers of the Satan's spawns (adult or child):
Have you EVER been asked something this ludicrous?
I'm not sure of a name yet---but since I have three jobs-all in completely different fields and am somewhat (ha ha) of a smart-ass:
--Triple Threat Tart????
