READ THE MENUS! I one time had a customer order a Turkey Club WRAP, but he only said Turkey club. This is in the 'WRAP' section of the menu and we only have it in a wrap, not as a sandwich. I bring the food out and the customer got mad and said "this isn't what I ordered", to which I was very confused and looked through my pad to see what I may have did wrong.

I saw I wrote "TC" (Turkey Club), so I knew I didn't do it wrong. I went back out to customer and advised him that what he ordered was a Turkey Club WRAP and we don't have it as a sandwich, but we can put it on bread, if you wanted us to do so. Customer refused and said he doesn't want it or anything else. Got an 8 cent tip on that bill.

TL;DL - Customer didn't properly read menu and ordered something he thought was something different, and I got a shit tip because of it.

Or when they come in and just make up their own menu item or combo of smaller items and expect you to be able to just make it work

Buy orange juice and the waitress comes by and asks "would you like some more?" And I say "yes" at least 3 different times. I get the bill and find out that refills aren't free -___-

Edit: spelling is hard.

Edit 2.1 : I think people are missing the focus on the story, the fact they didn't tell me it wasn't a free refill when asking if I wanted some more and no it wasn't on the menu.

Edit 3: ok I get it a lot of people never been to a place that has free refills on juice but no need to insulting.

Edit 4: I know it wasn't fresh squeezed, it was Minute Maid or Tropicana, naw I wouldn't expect freshly squeezed OJ to come with free refills.

As a server, I try and let people know whenever they order their drink if it isn't obvious. Alcohols I don't, but we have a very popular strawberry lemonade that charges for each refill, so I try to make that clear in a polite way as soon as they order. I then reinforce it if they ask for another.

This seems kind of shitty. “Pretend to like someone social, so that you can mooch off of their social status”. Just be yourself and seek out other people with similar interests lol

I wasn't saying to pretend, I meant to make a friend you genuinely like who could bring more people you may like into you life

Assuming that I am right, and that the bulbs are methyls, that would be 4,5,6-triisopropyl-2,3,7,8,9,10-hexamethylundecane.

Or I could be wrong. Either way my Organic Chemistry final is tomorrow.

Edit: triethyl to triisopropyl

Isopropyl instead of triethyl.
