You can say it as many times as you like but it doesn't change the fact that most owners will draw a line in the sand.
Nor does it change my belief that as owners we have to eat ****.
Believe it or not it doesn't hurt our businesses at all, it just allows us to sleep a little better.

Again, AMEN!

    Not having any of my own manhood to defend and not having a physical stature that makes me think I'm gonna kick some ass in the parking lot if it comes to it...I'd either laugh and be crazy along with him until he stops and sees I'm not the enemy or annoy him with so much annoying kindness that he can't drink his not-cold-enough Sprite fast-enough.

          We have customers that come in and ask us to wash the scoops and serve them from a new container to try and eliminate cross contamination.
          Keep extra scoops in a big jar of Barbicide for these situations.  You'll save time and kids will love the blue color.

            I guess I should have said we do it maybe once a week, I have allergies too so I know what it's like. It only takes a couple of minutes. It's usually nuts that they are worried about.

              I told him give me your cup, I took it back into the kitchen waited about 5 seconds, took it back out to him and said try this one, he did and said, "this is much better"!

                            If walnuts were in the dish...you'd eat it?

                            What does African American have to do with anything?

                            A) If I could remove the walnuts, I do. Otherwise, I don't.
                             
                            B) In our culture, there is a certain sensitivity, such that if a white person suggests not sitting next to an African American person, it is normally assumed that he or she doesn't want to do so BECAUSE the other person is African American, which will usually lead to ill-will or even violent reactions. Therefore, even though the woman looked like she was ready to bite someone's head off (or especially because), I did not want to let anybody in the restaurant hear that I didn't want to sit next to her.
                             
                            Adding: Based on other statements, let me make several things clear:
                            1) I knew walking in that the woman was spoiling for a fight. But if I made it clear that I didn't want to sit next to her, it would have been assumed that it was due to racism regardless of what I said. As a couple of you are already assuming, here.
                             
                            2) The menu said that it was with shrimp. From the discussion, it was clear that she did not tell the waiter that she was allergic to shrimp, although she may or may not have asked for shrimp not to be included (the waiter denied that she asked it, and the boyfriend did not back her up). The fact that she insisted on leaving instead of getting something else, and not paying anything for two platters of the highest price item on the menu is what brought it to butthead level.
                             
                            If someone's so allergic to shrimp that she can't even eat food that touched shrimp, then that person has an obligation to make it clear when ordering a dish that contains shrimp; note that even if the platter is served without shrimp, there is a high probability that shrimp would touch some of the other items on the platter during the preparation.

                              Unless it stated on the menu there was shrimp and she ordered it anyway (always a possibility, and then she's an idiot), she could very well have been surprised by it.

                              It was listed on the menu.

                                    My brother-in-law took me to a fish shop near Albany NY to pick out something for dinner. We were drooling over the fantastic fish selection and waiting for our turn. They also fry fish to order and there were a few customers waiting for their orders. One kept pacing and fidgeting and finally loudly protested that his order was taking too long and that other people were being served before him.
                                     
                                    The owner apparently had a run-in with him in the past came shooting out of the back and explained why his took longer and ripped him one in front of everyone. He threw his fish and fries in a bag and told him to get the hell out and don't come back....he pointed around the room and said "I have lots of great customers I don't need as#%&les like you. " We all got a great kick out of it...he didn't lose our business.

                                          My goal is to be a butt-head customer at Chubby's some day. Maybe this upcoming summer's trip to DC since we hope to get up to Gettysburg this time.

                                            You can do it. Just order something with bacon and then complain that it tastes as if it is made of pork.

                                                You can do it. Just order something with bacon and then complain that it tastes as if it is made of pork.

                                                And demand free refills of the great Dominion Draft Rootbeer!

                                                        Just when you think it's over they pull you back in again.
                                                        From sunny Cleveland, supposed to be 12" of snow this morning but from the red roof inn I only see a dusting.
