61- why do you assume that she is on a diet right away? I've had allergic reactions to a lot of things that I never knew why I had them: popsicles, soaps, lotions. No idea what compounds I was allergic to, but I know that if I swell up like a balloon I won't ever have that anymore. Some of us are just born a little weird.
64, well if the OP comes back and corrects me I'll humbly apologize. But, although soaps and lotions have very complex compound mixtures in them, butter does not. Only diary product and oils. So I repeat, she's either lactose intolerant which is not an allergy, or allergic to cow milk protein that necessitates the clean up of the whole workplace there, or allergic to traces of nuts in the oil they use, which also necessitates the clean up of the whole workplace, and she probably can't even eat the baked potato then, depending on which oil they use to bake it. Not specifying to what exactly you're allergic to is stupid and dangerous. 67, do you realize how much more work it is for the cooks to cater to a genuine allergic person? Every person that bluffs having an allergy is one more cook taking shortcuts "because people lie about allergies all the time" and endangering people with real allergies.
#81, Have you ever actually, I don't know, worked in a kitchen, or in the service industry in general? It doesn't sound like you've actually done so. If this woman ended up having an allergic reaction to the item in question, you know what would have happened? That's right: the restaurant would have been sued, and both the server AND the cook would have been out of jobs for it. In case you didn't know, most restaurants actually post a thing on a wall, and in the menus, to inform your server about any food allergies you have. The fact that the server didn't listen is the server's fault, not OP's fault.
81 is just a dipshit who apparently knows nothing of allergies at all. The process of making butter changes it's enzymatic activities. It's the same concept of people with strawberry allergies being able to eat strawberry ice cream. It's possible the OP is truly allergic to butter and not lactose intolerant. Now get out of your hole of a life and do research before assuming you can seem like an expert on a subject you know nothing about.
Guys, no. Waitresses often have a lot on their mind, considering it isn't exactly everyone's dream in life to wait on the public. They often work many tables at once, and it's very possible that many people asked for baked potato. Please be patient, I'm sure it wasn't on purpose.
@62 I vehemently disagree. Seeing as I am a person who has food allergies to eggs, nuts, high soy content, mango, and seafood, these kinds of things should be taken very seriously. That waitress has absolutely no excuse if someone makes a special request like that for a good reason like having a food allergy >:(
It was probably just a mechanical response. When you deal with customer service it tends to happen.
You can tell when people are not committed to their job. I mean, not hearing your customer twice? Bull shit.
Maybe it was very busy at the moment and she may have just forgotten. Just by working in fast food, during our rushes, if its very busy sometimes (not all the time) we will forget something for the customer. It happens to the best of us, doesn't mean we're not committed to our job.
