Whats with Americans and requesting shit like ribs to be well done? I wen't to an american style diner and they asked me how i wanted my fucking burger, yeah a fucking burger. The fuck is it with you Americans? Why can't you just all agree that "cooked" is the best way to serve fucking meat.
As for OP's question i am surprised she never mentioned them being racist once. Has evolution gone too far?
>>7041606 Australia is Americas left bollocks I was just genuinely interested as to why Americans bother asking for a burger to be cooked a specific way. How did it start? it was an awkward cringe story where an anon ordered burger instead of steak and dropped his spaghetti everywhere when he asked for it rare?
>>7041623 >If I was the manager I'd just laugh You'd be awful at running a location. If this gets to corporate, the manager will likely be fired. And since it's gotten to 4chan, they've probably already seen it.
>>7041623 They actually handled it smart. What would throwing a tantrum and screaming at them whilst refusing to pay do? You would disturb a few of the diners surrounding you, be told you leave, and the management will never take you seriously.
They posted this shit on facebook with proof of paying, they probably even twisted the story slightly, idk how facebook works but it seems that post is directed at Nandos. That shit will trend or like or whatever the fuck happens on facebook until managers see that shit. That's when shit gets good, the whole restaurant will go under inspection, people will lose jobs for acting this way, the customer will probably be given a free meal or coupon. All works out better.
>>7041546 im questioning your statement with a sarcastic tone. because you statement is a silly stupid one. chickens is the most common form of meat in the world so get out with your moronic world views
>>7041731 Even fucking pygmy tribes in the amazon raise chickens. African dirt farmers raise chickens. Indians living on designated shitting streets raise chickens. Every single person either has raised or know someone who has raised chickens in third world countries. You're maddeningly autistic even for here
>>7041649 The customer isn't always right. I know businesses have to have great PR and pander to every special snowflake out there but lets be honest here. They didn't say anything when they were there. Instead they deliberately directed their complaint to social media so the whole world can see. What is the point of that ? Instead of telling it on spot and refusing to eat/pay they go to higher authority without even saying something was bad to the manager. If they spoke to the manager maybe they could've sorted something out, and if that didn't work this would be the correct way. It's the same as the yelp episode. But this food indeed is inedible. >>7041669 You don't need to throw a tantrum and scream. You can be an adult and handle the situation like an adult. >Excuse me, we asked for well done this is beyond edible >Okay, we will bring something less well done >Dumb bitch this is well done If the 2nd answer was given then they have every right to complain to a higher authority. Why do you assume you have to scream if you don't like the food ? It's beyond my comprehension. It doesn't work better. This is just like you're having a dispute with someone and instead of handling the situation yourself you go and ask mommy to help. In all we know someone could've actually honestly made that well done thinking it is how they liked it. Now they're probably gonna be fired. >>7041715 >>7041720 >>7041722 I'm not even that guy but what ? Servers are bottom of society laborers. Anyone can do that without any real knowledge of anything. It is called like that for a reason. It's not meant to be rude, it's just how it is. Would you say calling a country 3rd world is rude ?
>>7041761 I actually don't believe something should be PC just for the sake of it. We're all equal no matter our job position. Just because someone is a huge CEO doesn't mean he is "better" than a server. It's just facts I'm trying to confirm. CEOs are seen as top of the society and servers bottom.
>>7041766 it doesn't matter if a customer makes a nonsense order, you try your best to approximate what they want without making the food obviously inedible
maybe, MAAAAAAAYBE if they had explained it was a prank and said "sorry, we just wanted to make a point, your real ribs are on the way" it would have been acceptable, but they threw that trash at them and expected them to pay for it
>>7041791 Why ? Is wealth how you evaluate someones worth ? >>7041794 Bottom of society in this case was work wise. It can be used in many cases. And they do earn more money but that doesn't change the fact that they're bottom of society workers. They don't contribute anything of value to the world with their work.
>>7041788 1. they weren't black, you can see the girl who is complaining's profile picture 2. give black people a little more credit 3. Nando's is a chain from South Africa, it's probably gotten more Black customers than white
>>7041811 You are correct. And those who do are seen as top of society workers. Most of "us" also don't contribute anything but we're in the middle because we actually do posses a certain skill that is valued.
Is there any group of human beings in this world that are saltier than waitstaff? Retail workers are pretty bad as well, but I've never known a waiter who didn't constantly piss and moan about their job and how somebody asked for ketchup or broke some arcane rule of restaurant etiquette.
>>7041911 Anyone who has to deal directly with customers in any form of customer service/support role tends to be salty. It's just how it goes when you need to deal with endless idiocy and douchebag customers all day long.
If customers weren't such assholes all the time, it wouldn't be a problem. Unfortunately, most people have that fucking "THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT!" mentality and view anyone who is employed to help assist with/resolve their problems as a sub-human slave robot instead of another human being.
>>7041917 That is why you need to be able to detach from yourself and be a robot while you work with human beings. If you can't do that then go and do something else. It takes skill to be able to work with humans and provide good service and not get crazy. I'm not talking about servers only.
>>7041917 Yeah, but that isn't any excuse. The job is to work with people, and people are annoying. That's what you should expect.
I work at a group home. One guy there gets mad and takes swings at me for trying to change his piss-covered bedsheets. One woman screams constantly, throws things at me, and flips the fuck out when I try to wipe her ass. Neither myself nor any of my coworkers bitch constantly about how much we hate retards. We have to be respectful too, and it isn't a problem. Our job is to serve people, and it comes with the territory. There are plenty of jackasses who work in my field too, but for some reason they can understand this. Waitstaff never seem to.
Disgusting service at your Nandos in Underwood tonight. Me and my friends ordered two sets of ribs today. Asked for them to be well done, your employees made fun of us, laughed nudged each other and wrote up well done 10 times on the reciept then when our ribs were brought to us they were completely burnt. Completley unedable. Both sets. Then when they brought the next ones out they had a thick layer of uncooked fat on them and were cold which clearly shows they were undercooked or not even put on the grill. To add on to this mess we've gone to leave and have had to pull back into the carpark as my friend had vomitted everywhere. Seriously unimpressed. Rude staff and unacceptable service. Something needs to be done about those two staff memebers that made a mockery out of this. * To those of you talking about the well done thing.. We ordered chicken ribs. We go to this Nandos regularly (as well as others) and ask for the same thing. There is usually no issue because every Nandos has this option and know how it's meant to be done to their own standards. This is not well done. This is burnt.
>>7041530 As much as those girls probably deserved it, and I'm always on a mans side because a guys judgment/desciisons though sometimes wrong come from a good place...I wouldn't want my food fucked with either. Like, I can be against my food being fucked with, but when it comes to these women being complainy bitches? They 99% of the time were asking for it.
>>7041940 Pretty much this >>7041939 You should expect your job to be annoying if you're working with people. But it is rather complicated. In my experience non-educated or bottom society people take "bottom-society jobs" for granted. I've worked as the IT guy in a huge hospital. Out of hundreds of tasks one of my tasks was to provide technical help to the hospital staff. The higher the position was the more respect I got. For instance people working on admittance didn't respect me at all, while doctors and other higher ranked staff respected me very much. >>7041971 Is that from Yelp ? I recommend watching the Yelp episode of South Park to everyone.
>>7041908 That's what I thought. I heard ribs, I think pork. But then I thought maybe it was beef because they asked for a temp. Then everyone is casually talking about chicken and the pictured items are chicken wings or drumsticks.
>>7041530 >I have a friend at work who raves about Nando’s. More specifically she rates the Nando’s barbecue chicken ribs as amongst her favourite foods. Until we started having conversations about Nando’s I never knew you could buy chicken ribs. I’m not alone, according to my friend she asked a local butcher for some and was told such a cut doesn’t exist. After much protestation the butcher refused to believe. Since then another butcher, a more enlightened butcher has been found.
>>7041530 I ask places like dominoes or hungry howies to bake my wings twice since I like them crispy, and they're always soggy. I don't think they've ever came on my food. It's not like I'm afraid of the chicken being undercooked, I just like the skin crispier than they do.
>go to local diner with new girlfriend >diner has always been extremely good, both in service and food
>be seated promptly >server takes drink order >gf goes to the bathroom >15 minutes after her return (so let's say 30 minutes total, you know how women take forever in the bathroom) still no drinks >we're seated pretty much right by the drink station >gf comments she could just get up and get her own coffee >server finally shows up to take our order, STILL hasn't given us drinks >point it out >finally get drinks, about 45 minutes after entering diner >I get some salad that actually sounded interesting because it was well past midnight at this point >gf orders some new stuffed french toast >takes another 45 to come out >cold as ice >she reluctantly eats it because she's ravenous at this point >my salad, which also had shrimp and grilled chicken, was perfectly fine, everything was cooked well >server never came to refill our drinks
So, I thought first time was a fluke, maybe a new server.
>go again, a week later, lunchtime-ish >packed, which it never is >takes forever to get drinks again >she decides to give it another chance, gets the french toast, after explicitly asking the manager if it's supposed to be hot or cold >server asked chef, said hot, manager said cold >came out cold >again, my lunch, whatever I ordered I don't remember, was fine >gf thinks it must be her >manager decides to comp her anything she wants >gf too flustered to think, just gets a cheese omelet >it ends up okay but she's too upset to really enjoy it >everything was so hectic at this point that I didn't even realize they comped the omelet but still charged us for the french toast, even though she never ate that
>>7042517 No I meant like, I'd order wings sometimes and they were more wet and soggy, which some people like. Then I asked them if they could bake them twice and they said fo sure. Now I always ask, and my wings are great, exactly how I like.
>>7042244 >you enter the restaurant >it smells like... something >multiple people are engaged in a knife fight in the middle of the room >you overhear screaming about veganism, meat and politics >host approaches >he tells you to seat yourself, calls you a retard and leaves >you sit in a corner, trying to avoid the mess in the middle >one of the ruffians looks at you while you walk across the restaurant >you hurry to your seat, hoping he didn't see you >he did >he rushes to your table and seats himself >he begins to explain how to "properly" make carbonara >he won't leave >soon, the waiter arrives >you order, and the waiter loudly scoffs every time you say anything
> about half an hour later >after sitting through an explanation of "meme foods" and why you should never eat them, your food arrives >a second, larger man erupts from the kitchen >he waddles to your table and sits down, the chair creaking as he does so >you realize the smell pervading the restaurant is coming from this man >he looks you straight in the eyes and begins telling you why every single food choice you've ever made is wrong >while he's talking, the waiter arrives with the check >"don't forget the tip," he says >suddenly, your two unwanted dinner companions turn to face the waiter >without saying anything, they jump up and begin beating the waiter with their chairs >you try to sneak away in the chaos >the lard giant grabs you from behind on your way out the door >he turns you around, and pukes pizza grease all over you >you feel yourself begin to swell >you suddenly feel very strongly about sriracha sauce and well-done steak >you roar at the top of your lungs "FUCKING PLEBS" >without hesitation, you enter the fray in the middle of the room
>>7041651 this is chicken you fucking retard. why is there even an option for it? its obviously an option because its on the reciept and not a special request. I would risk losing my job pinning you dipshits from the dish pit for being this stupid. you do not treat chicken like steak you twats.
>>7041530 Yes it's burnt to shit but the real culinary crime here is that it's swimming in that poo colored sauce. Even if the sauce is good why there so much on the plate it could be considered a soup
>>7041667 >>7042905 It's true. Some times I'd rather cry and hurt than have a "pleasant" heat. your cheap little chemical heat bottle might make it stronger than I'd like it, but I'll build up my tolerance eventually and be back to try it again.
>>7042736 no we don't the cut refered to as a rib at nandos is not any part of the chicken wing have you ever broken down a chicken? it's the two rib parts with the long bone on either side of the carcass
>https://foodtrail.wordpress.com/2012/08/05/chicken-ribs/ >A chicken is a small bird. Its rib cage is small. So how is it possible to serve chicken ribs? I imagine it is a wing. But, why call a rib? Certainly, a wing is different from a rib. Like everything else, I google search to find my answer. A chicken rib is not really a “chicken rib”, but it is part of the scapula meat, or a shoulder meat of the chicken.
I've solved it. Now go back to arguing over whether or not servers are people and if getting well done is grounds for execution or merely caning.
Also this thread is ridiculous. I've worked in about a dozen kitchens and I've never understood why most servers and kitchen staff (most are NOT chefs and most do not have some "reverence" for the food they cook, especially at a chain restaurant that looks to be total shit) have such huge fucking chips on their shoulders. Sure, the kitchen is a hot noisy place and you often have a lot of work to do, but there's really no excuse for purposefully destroying a paying customers food and if I were running a restaurant I would immediately terminate any employee who did it, no strikes, that's it.
I do think servers are worse in this regard than kitchen staff are, if just because their jobs are so much easier. People are assholes, but you don't see cashiers bitching and moaning day and night about their public relations job.
>>7041709 none of your reasons is the same. >asking for well done complains when burnt >treats people as lesser beings complains that lesser beings dont like to be treated badly >making them do their job yea fuck those guys
in general your a cunt but you had a point with your last one. how about everyone just respects everyone.
>>7041618 Because most places people want their burgers done differently than others. When i go out places I normally get my burger cooked medium, but at home when i know how my meat was handled I make mine med-rare.
>>7041667 Heh you fell right into my trap kid. When I want the spiciest sauce I act like a complete dick ask for the spiciest ssuce and say it's not spicy enough.of course then they think they're being a sneaking fucker by loading it with the spiciest shit ever. Normally asking for the spiciest sauce, no not that one, the real spiciest one nicely results in getting a tier less spicy than you wanted.Heh nothin personnel kid
Ribs (pork?) also does not have levels of doneness. And if you're eating ribs that have only spent 5 minutes being cooked, you're doing it wrong, anyways. That shit needs to be cooked low and slow.
But chicken ribs? I have no idea Wtf is going on, here. Those look like chicken legs on her plate, to me, and being overdone is the least of the problems. It looks like someone took a handful of chicken legs and poured General Tso's sauce all over them. And there aren't any sides? No bread? No rice? Not even a damn piece of cilantro, or anything? Just Chicken legs scattered on a large plate swimming in General Tso sauce? Wtf. Looks like a shitty restaurant.
I'm confused, it says ribs but it looks like chicken. I mean I kinda get well done ribs, ribs are done 160 but you really want to aim for 200 for bbq. Chicken is different though, once it is done it is done. After that it just starts drying out. So...what exactly am I looking at here or is my American showing on the rib thing?
>50% of world don't eat chicken >100% of world eat chicken >10% of world don't eat chicken >95% of world eat chicken
You guys arguing are stupid. It doesn't matter if chicken is available or not in a homeland they may or may not have come from. You should be able to see if food is burnt or not when you work in a restaurant.
>Refuse to serve the costumer as spected under the limits of the restaurants (if there is not a rule about not asking for well done steak or wathever that could know about before enter the pretentious shithole, you better serve it well done). >Search for any change in comparison to their taste and standar and act based on their "superior taste" and feelings. >Everyone but them are the special snowflakes.
I could add a shit ton of creap that those lazy fuckers do, but you might end up spitting the monitor that you mommy brought for you because most of the people working in restaurants are fucking retards. I feel bad for the chefts that actually give a shit about the people and get paid for cooking when they have to deal with retards of being a babysitter for free for those assholes.
