There are certain people who are just terrible and deserve to be humbled, big time – and it’s so great when these said people get what they deserve. This story helps make up for all of those days when evil wins.
It all started when two super-jerks waltzed into a work dinner party and acted like they owned the place. The waiter, who was originally excited to take care of a large work party, stepped out and told the story online – and the tale has since gone viral.
The guys made it clear from the get-go that the fancy food and drinks pre-selected by their boss just weren’t good enough. They never say it coming, but their boss made them pay for their pompous and entitled attitudes.
Upon entering the restaurant, the guys immediately started ordering the fanciest top-shelf alcohol available – which was not on the pre-set menu. In addition, they went straight to offending the waiter.
The two brats downed glass after glass of expensive liquor
In fact, they eventually drank $600 worth of Johnnie Walker Blue whiskey, Black label was on the pre-set menu. In addition, they ordered the most expensive red wine for the ladies they brought with them.
The high-priced liquor didn’t make them any nicer. Instead, they complained more and more as the night went on.
There were too many bread plates and not enough bread. The service was slow. And everyone’s food didn’t come out at exactly the same time – it seemed the staff waiting on them could do no right.
At least, not for these two guys. Everyone else at the table was gracious, appreciative, and seemed to thoroughly enjoy everything served to them.
On top of that, the pair made it clear that they thought they were better than everyone trying to make them happy. Even going so far as to say, “You’re just some waiter, we have MBA’s. Just get us our drinks!”
When the head waiter brought out the bill at the end of the night, the company’s boss was shocked – how did the bill get so high when it was a pre-selected menu?
The waiter who shared the story online kindly pointed out the two men who had gone off the pre-selected menu and demanded the waiter bring them the drinks they wanted because it was their party.
Instead of letting it go, the boss called out the two clowns in front of everyone, publicly humiliating them before making them pay the entire bill – which totaled $3,000.
On top of that, boss man told the waiter to raise the included gratuity from 18 percent to 25 percent.
Here’s the original story posted by the waiter…
“What follows was the singularly greatest ass chewing I have been witness to”
“Apparently I thought this was my party. Guess I was wrong. This is their party and they will be taking care of the check. Oh, and up the gratuity to 25%. You earned it.”
Of course, anyone who has ever worked in the service industry knows that guys like this exist out there – and at some point or other you’re going to be stuck catering to them.
In an interview with Bored Panda, the waiter who wrote the story online said that everyone in attendance was “dressed nice” and it appeared that the boss “was their father and it was a family business, hence why he could make them pay.”
The Texas-based waiter also shared some advice for anyone dealing with wait staff… “Don’t mess with people who serve you your food.” Noted.
Vice collected some advice from waiters who shared what they did and didn’t like their patrons doing. In particular, they didn’t like being shouted at from across the room.
On the other hand, they greatly appreciate small acts of kindness – like returning a ‘hello’ when they introduce themselves to your table.
One waiter mentioned his pet peeve is when patrons mutter things about taking away his tip as soon as something goes wrong.
