Today, the family I was serving had ordered calamari and when I brought out the food, they started yelling at me because apparently their daughter was allergic to it. Just why would you order it then? FML

They probably thought that if they could make the manager believe that, they wouldn't have to pay for their food and maybe they'd even get another free meal for their "suffering". Unlikely that the daughter was even allergic. Yes, some people suck.

Some people should not be allowed to reproduce. They are just too dumb.

Did they at least tip?

they already reproduced...

do people really do this sort of thing? that's low.

#10 Being a parent is a big responsibility, and if you're beyond stupid like the family in this FML, you don't deserve that responsibility.

I'm a little perplexed by this one. Did they know she was allergic or did they not know and she had a reaction, and they blamed you like you were supposed to be a medical psychic on her allergies?

It's in the US. You know, the country where a guy with a nut allergy can eat a bag of peanuts and still sue the company for not warning him peanuts are nuts...

Some people just love arguing... Don't think about them. You did your job OP

This situation sounds pretty fishy considering they knew their daughter was allergic to shellfish.

Calamari is not shellfish. It's squid.

Take your stupid puns and leave. Now.

#15 When you think of a better fish pun...let minnow.

I'd like to know too. Just for the halibut.

Did they even know what calamari was before they ordered it? Some idiots order "foreign sounding" stuff just to show off, regardless of whether they knew what it was or not.

"Calamari? Is that like spaghetti?"

So true. I had someone order our beef carpaccio once. It's raw. When it came out the man asked me what the hell is this and when I explained, he said "Yeah we don't want this."

That's what I was thinking. They probably then thought it was a shellfish...extremely unlikely she was allergic to a cephalopod.

Apparently, some people need attention and to feel important that badly...

That's weird.. but, if their daughter is really allergic to it: F her life, too.

I'd give their daughter a FML for being allergic to squid (Calamari is delicious) and another one for having idiot parents.

so many people expect you to be psychic these days
