UnderCover Waitress: Customer Food Allergies

Customer Food Allergies

Looking at keywords that bring you, my wonderful readers, to this site, I saw, "customer allergy to the food but he never."

AIGH! I'm ALLERGIC to that!!!
Yup, they sure have a hissy-fit when you serve them X and they are allergic to X. That is because they will die if they eat X. So why on Earth don't they bother to tell us? If I were going to die, be certain I will tell you so you don't inadvertently kill me. (Who knows, maybe they just want to file a lawsuit?)

Had a woman order a chocolate dessert. When served, it has a little raspberry and caramel sauce on the plate. She threw a fit because she is allergic to raspberries, a fact she had withheld.

Now, she was mad because the description either didn't mention or mentioned in small print the raspberry sauce. However, what it does mention on the menu is that it is impossible for the restaurant to print every single ingredient of every dish, so please mention any food allergies to your server.

Remember, this is a small, chef-owned restaurant in which everything is made to order. Perhaps if you are used to dining in places that defrost food to order, you can expect things to never change.

Of course, we re-made her dessert without the raspberry sauce. I asked her if she was allergic to anything else; she gave me a dirty look. Yeah, I didn't like her either.
