Howlin' at the moon...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

well, it's that time of the month again...(no, not pms...i have guns to deal with that!), but the full moon week....sleep is elusive, people seem extra crazy, and customers just get a little more nutso/wacko than usual...this just happened in a phone call...

caller: i'd like to make a reservation but would like to know what's on your menu first

me: i recited the menu

caller: can you make a grilled cheese sandwich?

me: we do have a children's menu, but we do not have a grilled cheese sandwich on it

caller: well, can you make one anyway?

me: no, not really..i don't have the cheeesy bread or cheese, we do have other nice choices..i recited the

      kids menu

caller: it's not for my kids, it's for my wife and actually my 18 year old daughter

me: adults cannot order off the kids menu sir...it's for kids

caller: my wife and 18 year old daughter only eat 'childlike' foods. they don't eat adult food

me: then get them a happy meal!..we can simplify a dish for them like spaghetti with oil and herbs or 

       butter and cheese, or plain marinara if they like

caller: do you have chicken fingers or nuggets on your kids menu?

me:  we have nothing fried on either the kids or regular menu, but again adults cannot order off the kids

        menu

caller: i get that...i would like to make a reservation if you can make a grilled cheese sandwich for my wife

         and daughter

me: at this point sir all i can do is to put you on a waitlist for the weekend

caller: fine

Love it!!! Sir, I can make you a grilled cheese sandwich, the price on that will be $25. What time would you like me to put you on the wait list for, as we do not have any openings at this point.

For you durangojo, the good snicker; practically a nicker.  For the customer the bad snicker, more like a spit take.  What a maroon.
