I WAS RIGHT!

By goddamn idiot! - 14/06/2022 07:00 - United States

Today, I was sent home for refusing to sign a write up at my restaurant. A customer insisted that she doesn’t drink soda so she’d like a ginger ale. I calmly explained to her that ginger ale is in fact soda. She told management I was being condescending and rude, because she didn’t believe me. FML

You're working for tips -- you're not their goddamn nutritionist! If someone comes in saying they're vegan and ordering a cheeseburger, just shut your trap and fill the order.

I think informing a customer that can't drink soda that something they ordered is infact soda is perfectly acceptable. being condescending would be bad. And while too many people feel that being a customer entitles you to being shitty, and treated as royalty... when you work for tips, you will eat alot of shit. bite, chew swallow, repeat. it sucks and I hope those people all go away, but until then, find a better job or bite, chew, swallow as quick as possible.

YDI, your job is to serve the customers. Ginger Ale is a perfectly good substitute for "soda", as it is gentler on the digestive system than coke or Pepsi. you are lucky you didn't get fired.

The customer came back for round two it seems.

You can’t fix stupid. Next time just take their order and leave it at that.

I'm so curious as to why you thought it was ok to be condescending to a customer. Just give her the ginger ale. Why does it matter if it's soda or not.

Let the woman have her Ginger Ale. You don't have to explain to her that it's a soft drink.

I agree with her. You were being condescending and rude. it's not your job to correct the customer. Just give her what she asked for.
