Today, at the café I work at, I was yelled at by a woman because the drinks and food she ordered were "taking too long". Before I had the chance to get a word in, she stormed out and said she would never come back. I didn't get the chance to inform her that she hadn't ordered yet. FML

Trust me 55 it's very rare tipping in Australia, I work in a restaurant also doing home deliveries for them as well. Many of my customers are repeat customers and even ask me to be their server or delivery driver and 1 in 20 tip.


@55 - Haha. How about YOU look at the facts? We don't tip unless it is exceptional service because our system isn't like in the USA where servers are expected to make up their wages with tips.

Plus, the person above me corroborated what I said. So who's "pulling a blonde moment" now?

Not agreeing with the totally rude customer and if she hadn't ordered yet she was obviously confused if she was yelling about her food but she was probably waiting a long time for OP to take her order.. It's not really wrong of her to be angry because either way she was (probably) waiting for a while. Just an observation.

#3 stupidity is when a customer asks if this scone is suitable for veggies, then goes on to ask the same about spaghetti.
I was like "No, sorry our pasta is made from bacon"

Some people don't have a choice and have to work in service.

As for the scone/spaghetti thing, I'm sure those who ask wonder if the spaghetti comes with meat sauce or meatballs, which is a legitimate question for a veg*an to ask.

As for you, OP, interesting that the woman didn't even wait for an answer as to why it was taking so long. But she probably would have gotten mad at a calm "You haven't ordered yet, ma'am."

Pasta typically is made with eggs. Vegans don't eat eggs. Therefor, you're an ignorant douchebag and your customer was 100% right. And cream sauce isn't suitable for vegans either. It contains, at least hopefully, cream, which is a dairy product and not vegan.

I work at a theater where I can easily get a hundred customers or more in a single hour. The ratio between polite, intelligent customers and rude, ignorant customers is truly frightening.

1. It has nothing to do with what sauce it was.
2. Eggs are not common in pasta making, most dry pastas don't contain egg. Which includes spaghetti.
3. Please get all facts straight before, trying to back up retarded customers.

Old is generally 60+ and as far as I know it always has been. So before you assume for no reason, be sure you actually know the type of person you're talking to
