Let me share my worst experience in a restaurant when being served by a waitress. I received the meal which I did not order. When I told this to this waitress, she freaked out that that they do not have the food I ordered. Instead of apologizing, she just managed to say, "Take it or leave it." Of course, I did not take it and called her manager about this concern. I demanded to reprimand a sanction or something to her. Then, I left shaking my head. What would you say to the waitress or waiter in this situation? Any similar experiences like me? Image Credit: media1.moneywise.com

It should be done in that way. This waitress did not give good customer service. She should have informed me about it.

One day I had to wait for food for almost 2 hours. their excuse is that one of the chefs didn't come in, if that's the case they should limit the number of guests

That's a bad thing to experience. I will really be in a rage if it happens to me.

I never had an experience like yours and of course I would have also called the manager.

@Shavkat I cannot imagine a restaurant surviving here should a waiter say something like this to the clients... not even at McDonald's.

@LadyDuck I agree. It is a common thing that they need to take this matter seriously

I've never had an experience like that. I would be very upset and talked with the manager, too.

It is also my practice to ask the manager's time to deal with this matter.

@Shavkat It can't hurt and maybe she will learn not to do that to anyone else.

It happens for a reason and learns something from it.

Not too bad experience. Once I waited for half an hour, yet no one came to take our orders. I walked out and leave afterwards. If I were meaner, I should be like my aunt. She waited that long and someone did finally take her order. She ordered her food, then she got up and left.

Don't have similar experience. When the food is not available, they always managed to inform. Too bad for the waitress deciding in your behalf.

Too bad for her. I guess she needs to be trained and oriented again what's the nature of her job.

I would get mad. Why would she give me the food I did not order. My husband has a lot of bad experiences. I don't have.

I agree. I cannot even comprehend why she did this. Perhaps there is a mixed-up of orders and she's trying to give a good alibi, which did not work for me.
