So today a man walks in and asks for a table where he can spread out because he is about to have a meeting. This is not uncommon at my workplace since we do get lots of business people. Anyway, I seat him and hand him a lunch menu and place one down for the person he is waiting for. I ask him if he wants anything to drink. He asks for a water and a coffee.
The lady arrives that he is waiting for. I immediately go to the table and ask her what she will be drinking. A water as well. So i bring out her drink and ask if there ready to order....
The woman says " I already ate lunch before I came" and the man says "I think I'll skip it as well". Yes my restaurant can be used for meetings, but you HAVE to eat something. We are not Barnes and Noble or a library.
So whatever I pay attention to their table and bring them multiple refills. In my head I was already planning on giving him the coffee on the house (for free). But before I even have the chance to tell him this, they have already left and did not leave me anything. Now I don't know where he comes from, but at my restaurant coffee is not free, it's actually $2.50. So not only did he rip us off for $2.50, but the cheap bastard didn't even leave me a tip. Ughhhhh
