I once had a group of people(about 5-7) sit in my section. All but one of them was great. The one in question was a stuck-up, snobby old woman.
While delivering the food to the table before hers even reached her she began to complain about the temperature of her food. Now how can she complain without even trying it? I have no clue. So i asked her,"Would you like me to take this back". "No, that takes to long, and I want to eat with everyone else". OK. She then said, "If it was made correctly the first time, I wouldn't be complaining". I said, "It really isn't too much trouble and won't be long at all, I'll be right back with it". She still hasn't even tried it.
She went on to explain how she likes to talk a lot while she eats. (OK lady so shut up and eat your damn food already). She told me that when she gets to the last bite, her food is usually cold. I asked her again, "What can I do to help this problem"? She said, "Just stay near so when I need you to heat it, you can do it quickly".
Right, because I don't have 6 other tables to take care of their needs as well. 1 hour later, she is flagging me down. I immediately go over. She barks at me, "Make it hot and do it fast, I don't have time to wait".
She is the only person left eating at the table at this point, everyones dishes have been cleared. I go to the kitchen with her plate and tell the chef to make sure it's so hot it burns her mouth.
Anyway, after all my trouble, the lady calls me over again and says to me, "you really need to tell the chef's to prepare the meals in a way that makes them stay hotter longer." I said, "Listen, not everyone is like you, people want there food to be hot when it comes out and usually eat it all at once, not take a hour to eat a very small entree".
Needless to say, I didn't get much of a tip, but no matter what I did I probably wasn't going to get much of one anyone. Not even if I had a microwave at her table for her to personally heat it up as she chose to.
