    On New Years Eve an epi pen made an appearance at my restaurant. They had a hazelnut allergy. They requested the Hazelnut Cremosa. Then they literally ate a couple of candied hazelnuts. And they had an allergic reaction. Imagine that.

    Few years ago I had someone order a club sandwich on brown bread, but the middle slice of bread white. About a year after that I had someone ask me to pick the minced carrots out of a rice pilaf. I said no to that one, unless they wanted to wait for me to make a new batch, which they didn't.

    Last night had a table send back our Pickled Bean Sprout salad, they weren't aware that it was a 'salad' and said they can't eat raw bean sprouts.... And requested it be cooked, because they can eat them cooked apparently.

    Had a server that had 4 tickets in a row that every dish had a special instruct on it, and the very next ticket he put in had a side of broccoli-sub collard greens on it.

    ... Dude. Put in a side of collard greens.

    had a server ask today if we still had mashed potatoes. We haven't had that for 3 months, when the menu changed.

    Server at brunch tries to order fries. We've never had fries. So their response is: 'Well how about a baked potato?'

    Never had a baked potato at brunch either.

    86'd the server.

    It is our human duty to enjoy life. We’ve got to be greedy about living. We learned that greed is a vice, but that’s old. Greed is a virtue. Especially this greediness for life.

    Hahaha that's a good one. I'd have cooked that right on a burner on the range till it was black.
