Ever gone out to eat and have your order messed up?
Tonight I went out to dinner with friends. My order was fine, but their orders were completely messed up…..
At the end of our dinner, even my friend’s ticket was messed up!
Oftentimes it’s awkward to tell a waiter, “Hey! This is all wrong.”
You don’t want to be an overcomplaining customer, but you’re also paying for the food.
The goal is to handle the situation with as much grace as possible. (Both of my friends were super gracious by the way.)
Sometimes it’s easy to be gracious, sometimes it’s not.
I’m not saying it will be easy, but I do know that a little graciousness will go a long way.
And, if that doesn’t work, have a chat with the restaurant’s manager.
Being gracious is not the same as being a doormat.
