"A couple came into the chain restaurant I worked at. Both looked like they were mid 30s. I go to take the order and the guys says 'hold on, let me call my mom. She can tell me what I would like better.' The lady just looked at him like 'I messed up.. I messed up real bad'" (Source).
"I worked in a restaurant that had a huge selection (150+) of hot sauces. We sold them by the bottle but customers could sample any of them and use them on their food. A couple came in, the guy started bragging about how much he loved hot sauce and how he never found one that was too hot. He asked for the hottest one we have. I brought the bottle to his table, he filled a spoon with the sauce and made a big production of how he was going to eat it. I told him not to, the hostess told him not to, the waitress serving the next table told him not to... he put it in his mouth, started choking and gagging, puked on the table then passed out and did a faceplant right into the puke!! We called 911. He woke up right away and kept gagging for a while. He refused treatment when the paramedics showed up. They left without even ordering a meal! The girl told one of the restaurant staff that it was their first date" (Source).
"This lady came in for lunch and let me know she was waiting for someone. When her lunch date got there I took his drink order, grabbed his coke and brought it to the table. As I'm placing it down I see a positive pregnancy test in a Ziploc on the table in front of the dude. Her excited face, his shocked, semi-disgusted but trying to look happy face, my what the actual f--k face. Awkward level went up 100%. I murmured something about congratulations and left the table as fast as I could" (Source).
"One summer I worked at Cheddar's. A couple in probably their late 40s walked in and sat at one of the high top tables in the bar area. The man ordered a shot of whiskey and a beer, the woman a diet coke. When the drinks come he takes the shot, takes a pull on his beer, and backhands his SO so hard she fell out of her chair. He just sat there calmly drinking his beer until his arresting officer arrived. The woman stood up after a few seconds by which point the manager was walking over. She started walking towards said manager who escorted her to the back office until the police arrived. The rest of the staff just kind of ignored it and tried to keep working. My section was next to where they were so it was painfully awkward trying to keep working around it. Poor lady" (Source).
