I just ruined someone's family at work?
1stSep 14, 2020
- So today at work (as a server) I get a table. The system my restaurant has uses like printed tickets whenever we get a table and it has like allergies and preferences inputted into the system over numerous visits so if u have a regular you can see some info on them and anticipate their needs.
I look at the ticket for this table. it specifically reads "wife has SEVERE dairy allergy"
i look at the table its a man woman and two kids... the "husband" is the landlord of the building
so i get their drinks in and then take their order. the woman orders biscuits which have a shitton of dairy and butter so i go "oh im aware you have a dairy allergy..." and im about to explain it to which she responds "no i dont"
THIS is where if i was more suave i could have turned everything around but i WASNT. I go "oh rlly you arent" like im genuinely confused and i made the mistake of MENTIONING the ticket system and they asked how it works and i went INTO DETAIL about it. in hindsight it sounds like im trying to bury the quote unquote husband but it wasnt intentional.
the husband then goes "...yeah ... that was someone else i came with"
the quote unquote wife "can you remove that information from the system"
THATS when i realized i fucked up but the damage was already done
so yea they prolly had some interesting convos once they got home once the kids were out of earshot =]
