Why am i too damn nice?

Ok so were in the middle of a transitionary period at work, this means reduce traffic, reduced stock, limited menu and no licence for alcohol.

 

so when a guest at the adjoined hotel goes to the nearest off licence and without asking brings it to his table i am a little annoyed

 

no, more than that, my line manager has told me we cant let people drink inside, even their own booze.

 

i thought he was wrong and convinced him to let them stay...

 

oh if that was the end of it i wouldnt be annoyed so...

 

next "what vegetarian options do you have, i dont want to eat fish but i will if i have to"  a bloody piscetarian... only thing worse is a vegan, at least a full vegetarian sticks to their choice.

 

theres a nice thai vegetable curry or a spinach, chick pea, and sweet potato curry. or there are some other fish dishes on the menu

 

"ill have a salmon fillet with potatoes and vegetables"

 

err i dont remember salmon being on the menu at all, and anyway i dont have any potatoes ready and i wont stock frozen veg unless its peas or for soup.

 

"oh then ill have salmon fillet with some chips and salad"

 

at this point im fuming but fine, i happen to have some salmon in the freezer from a group booking.

 

how does her fella want the steak?

 

well done

 

arrgh, whats the bloody point! its just dried up meat by then (though i can cook w<ell done rump juicy, its not the point)

 

i should have turned them out after the wine fiasco at the start but no... at each turn ive bowed to their requests

 

and i hate myself for it

Remindsme of the movie "Ratatouille", five cooks aiming knives at the rat, and the pastry guy ignites his trusty propane torch...........

I kn ow the feeling, OP.  I work in what is usually a wonderful place.  Only issue is, I'm in the middle of one of the densest congregations of hippies in northern California, so we get a LOT of vegan/celiac/vegetarian/irritating customers.  That in mind, I get the temptation to just throw whatever they want at them just to shut them up.  I would have lost it when they started ordering things that weren't on the menu, though.  I had one neanderthal customer walk up to me and demand oysters.  People like that, I generally make an attempt to make their food so unpleasant they don't come back.No one needs the business of people like that anyway.
