Really not that funny....

I have a cold, so in order to get through the past couple of nights, I have pumped myself full of cold medicine - which makes me a little dizzy, nearly deaf, and seeing spots. Not to mention, I seem to be laughing at everything.

So table 21 was sat with a family that seemed to have everything except a sense of humor. They ordered the finest wine, the Filet Mignon, and several of our special "Combo" meals. I put in the order, brought the apps, and everything seemed to be going fine.

I was at another table when the manager delivered their meal. All of the combos were mixed up. Great - $90 check and I can just see the tip going down....

I went to the kitchen to see what was wrong, and found out that The manager had brought a combo from another table's order, and mine was already being eaten by another customer. Even better - that tip is shrinking as we speak!

I explained the situation, and the table was actually kind of understanding. The meal came out again - delivered by another manager. STILL WRONG!!!!! Are you kidding?!?

"This is kind of like a Saturday Night Live skit!" The lady said to me. I apologized up and down, then went back to the galley to laugh. I couldn't help myself!! Was this really happening?

We finally fixed this - and my $90 check earned me a $13 tip.

Actually, it is kind of funny...I can see this developing into the "Greek Restaurant" skit where the servers start banging all the customers :)

ouf! i know that. Its why I insist to be alerted every time my food comes out by someone other than me./..PLEASE tell me, bc no matter how busy I am, I still need to go check those mofo's to be sure they don't need a napkin, or more water, bc usually the person that drops the food never looks for that stuff. So if someone else runs my food they tell me and I go within the 3 bite rule..(i have to go eventually, why not get it out of the way...?) i feel your pain though my fellow grinder!
