Anonymous Chefs Share The Things That Customers Order That Totally Annoy Them

Anonymous Chefs Share The Things That Customers Order That Totally Annoy Them

People can either be picky or playing themselves with their meals. And the Chefs of the world want better for us. All we have to do is listen!

Redditor BerneseMountainDogs came to these disguised helpers with a question:

Chefs of Reddit, what do we all need to stop ordering?

And the chefs answered.

Save Your Bank Account

A pepperoni passion from Domino's. If you order double pepperoni with extra cheese it's the same pizza but cheaper.

Air On The Side

Server at a vegan resturant here. A woman asked me for something on the menu with no potato or starches , no corn, no wheat, no soy, no vegan cheese, nothing processed, no added sugar, and no fruit.

I suggested a salad. A plain salad.

"I dont want a salad, thats all I have at home. When I eat out I want something different."

I dealt with multiple fussy eaters, people with crazy diets, or crazy allergies, and this was the first time I ever had to say "we cant accommodate that order, you havent given me much to work with.... maybe if you eased up on one or more restrictions...."

She just had a glass of water.

Literally

Had a group complain that their scallops "tasted like they came from the bottom of the ocean."

That's literally where scallops come from.

The Lies

My business is completely carry out, and I'd say once a month or so we get a complaint that the pizzas were cold/old looking when they picked them up.

  • They were about 160 degrees when you picked them up because we keep them in a warmer. They might be cold by the time you get home but if it's 10 degrees outside and you don't have a carry bag (we sell them for 5$) then yes your pizza will probably be a bit cooler than when you picked it up.
  • When you place an order, and we say it'll be ready in 20 minutes, and you are there an hour and a half later don't complain. I would rather cut my fking hand off then remake your food for you.

    • Don't lie and say you were on time, my point of sale logs order placed and picked up times, it's also on your receipt, oh you lost your receipt, well you can come by and pick another one up, no, a copy of your receipt, I'm not remaking your food.
    • An Oyster Of A Problem

      People that have to order sh-t done a specific way and then b-tch about it. I can give you a list:

      Lady ordered chicken schnitzel but didn't want it deep fried so she wanted it grilled. So she got her breaded grilled chicken and complained that it was bland.

      Guy didn't want his calamari deep fried because he was on a diet, so we pan friend it in minimal oil and he complained because it didn't look as good.

      Lady ordered truffle sauce, complained because it was "too strong".

      And my personal favourite.... a couple complained because their kilpatrick oysters were "warm and slimy". Firstly have you ever eaten an oyster? And it f-cking should be warm, it just came from under the grill.

      Non-Menu Items

      It's not on the menu but can you whip me up a dragon fruit gyoza in a cloud layer of elemental darkness served in a ham tambourine? It's my birthday so you have to do it.

      I'm A Different Chef

      "I like that dish insert any tv chef did at that tv show, what it was called?" if you want Gordon Ramsay fantasy course, please go to one of his restaurants.

      A Soupy Situation

      As an unlicensed, but professional short order cook; I ask you all to reconsider trying our soup! Rather than what not to order, I feel all the places I worked at I always had the ability to load up the soups with whatever I wanted. I AM THE SOUP KING.

      Break; Fast

      Things that are impossible or a contradiction aka eggs over easy, hard yolk. What!?

      I work at a breakfast place, and I have seen the most bizarre ways to order eggs...

      Just Be Honest

      Order whatever you like. Stop telling the wait staff your sensitivity or preference is an "allergy". There is a whole giant cleaning and safety operation that takes place when we get an allergy, and we have to treat every one seriously because we don't know. The number of times people with dairy "allergies" put milk in their coffee after their meal, tell us about nut allergies when ordering dessert after eating the rest of their meal that had nuts in It, or upon being told they could not have a modified version of a dish without shellfish respond with "ill have it anyway, it's not serious."

      Not to even mention things like "allergies" to -melted cheese specifically -dark meat but not white meat from a chicken -any eggs that aren't scrambled -peppers but paprika is fine -very serious gluten allergy that will cause extreme pain to the unfortunate patron, who is chugging down his 3rd pint of double IPA.

      I could go on.

      Just say you don't like it and we won't put it in there. We want you to enjoy your meal. I work 14 hour days to cook people good food as best I can. I want you to be happy, I promise. Lying is disrespectful.

      For Real, JUST. BE. HONEST.

      Not a chef, was a waitress, but if you don't know what an ingredient is, please ask. Especially if you have dietary requirements.

      I got screamed at by a vegetarian couple because I "made them" eat meat for the first time in 15 years. They ordered the pea and pancetta soup, without knowing what pancetta was, and without telling me they were vegetarians. I was expected to somehow read their minds and know they were vegetarian and warn them.

      Oh No.

      Former Steak N Shake cook here: the 7 X 7 burger. 7 patties with 7 slices of cheese stacked on top of eachother on a bun. A pain to make and an easy way to cardiac arrest increase your waistline and damage your digestive tract.

      There was so much grease that we had to leave the stack of patties and cheese to drain on a different plate first so that it wouldn't turn the bun into a new state of matter between solid and liquid (the comments have informed me that it's called a colloid).

      By the way, one person cooks all the patties, two on rush hours. Zero to two more add condiments. That person may not make a penny over minimum wage and never gets tipped.

      Parasites

      Swordfish...all fish can have parasitic worms. But swordfish can be riddled with them. Let's just say it's pretty unappetizing.

      Two-Steak

      I used to work at an irish pub 7 years ago. We had a bud spud and steak (Get a beer, get a potato and get a steak for like 10 bucks for a fundraiser)

      Someone attended and asked for a half steak well done, and half rare/medium rare but she didnt want it cut in half, wanted the steak whole.

      I was able to KINDA do it (Half the steak was hanging off the side of the grill, cooking each side one at a time) but she sent it back, wasnt cooked right.... Boss got mad at me cause I didnt cook the steak two different ways right.....

      Planet What

      This is highly dependant on the quality of the restaurant, but a good rule of thumb is not to order stuff that is out of character with the rest of the menu.

      Every restaurant menu has a general theme to their food. That could be based on region or dietary limitations or main course (steakhouse for example) or whatever.

      A lot of places will also have a couple of things that break that theme so the picky eaters in the group have something to order. That stuff will often be made with older ingredients, and by people who aren't used to making it since it comes up so rarely in a night.

      Just Let Me Be

      Stop trying to make your own dish out of our ingredients. I have no problem with substitutions, sauce on the side, etc. But if you come in and say "can I have this dish... But i want this instead of this, this instead of this, and can you serve it as part of a salad?" then that's not ok.

      It's one thing to work around an ingredient you don't like, but it's another to treat the kitchen as your pantry. Dishes are designed the way they are on purpose. If you mess with that formula too much, we're no longer responsible for your food tasting good or not.

      Celiacs, Beware...

      Stop ordering dishes that aren't promoted as being gluten free in the first place, if you actually aren't gluten intolerant. The dishes that are marked as gluten free are prepared so that absolutely no contamination will occur. If a dish is not gluten free and you ask for it to be, it will halt all production in the kitchen until your dish is done. And sometimes you won't get the exact dish because of prep work on ingredients, which might involve being in contact with gluten.

      Cheating Yourself

      20$+ salads, unless it's got some fantastic protein component to it. It's just not worth the money; buy the ingredients for <10$ and make it yourself.

      Don't get me wrong, salads can be delicious and well worth ordering, but don't pay entree prices some lettuce and fruit.

      Example: I used to work at a popular patio restaurant right in the middle of a rich, beautiful part of town. Due to the location and the general swagger of the place, we knew we could charge 24$ for this strawberry goat cheese salad in the summer, and we hyped the fact that it was "gluten free". Food cost for it was maybe 4$, prep time negligible, execution time <1 minute, so the margin on these things was just insane. I swear, every time summer rolled around, we made more money from girls in their early 20s ordering that salad than we made on booze.

      Oh, and don't forget to add 3.5oz of chicken for 9$.

      Just Use Your Menu

      Don't order something that's not on the menu, even if you've had it there before. Cooks set up their stations very specifically in order to efficiently cook what's on the menu. Ordering something you saw on tv or ordering a past menu item means we have to stop cooking and prep the ingredients for you meal which screws up our rhythm. If you don't want what's on the menu, go to a different restaurant.

      Recap

      So to sum it all up:

      • Don't order 30 minutes before close
      • Be respectful to your waiters and waitresses

        • Don't try to mix and match the menu to make your own concoction
        • If you're in Argentina, just order the steak and not seafood

          • Don't try to re-invent phrases for how you like your food. Rare Plus doesn't exist....medium rare, does.
          • Have you ever found yourself in an argument so stupid and/or pointless that you were sure you were being punked? Like you keep looking away from the other person to check your surroundings for places Ashton Kutcher and a camera crew could come popping out of?

            You're not the only one.

            u/Anti-hollowkid asked: What is the dumbest argument you've ever been in?

            Brace yourselves, folks. Some of these arguments are breathtakingly bonkers. The sheer number of people who are willing to argue with someone over provable facts and what that other person likes or doesn't like is just ... stunning. It's stunning, you guys. Just not in a good way.

            My wife and I once argued over whether or not I liked mustard on my hot dog. I was for me liking mustard, she was against me liking mustard.

            The argument lasted way longer that you could ever imagine it would.

            A Stair Step

            My brother and I argued if our staircase had 13 or 14 steps, based on an argument about if the floor of the second floor counts as a stair-step or not. We still have no solution.

            Saturdays

            My husband and I have this thing where we only say "I love you" on Saturdays. Every other day it's "I love you, but only on Saturdays." I don't know how it started, but it's been going for 11 years now.

            We're both shiftworkers, so sometimes we have to stop and think what day it actually is. We had an argument recently over whether it was Saturday or not. I said it was Saturday, he said it was Friday. It was Monday.

            Iraq

            I remember when I was about 13 my parents had an hour-long shouting match that ended with them almost getting divorced. The issue? Whether or not the nation of Iraq has a coastline.

            My mother arguing that Iraq had a coastline, while my stepdad argued that it did not. This was back in 2004, and they are still quite happily married to this day. That incident is something they look back on and laugh about, and both of them admit it was really a pretty stupid thing to argue over.

            $40

            With an ex:

            "I owe you $80 for the bills of ours that you pay, and you owe me $40 for the bills of ours that I paid. Here's $40 in cash; we're even."

            She did not understand this.

            I literally had to go get another $40 out of the ATM, and hand the $80 to her. Then I had her hand me the $40 she owed me.

            "Now how much do you have in your hand?"

            She still didn't understand.

            She somehow has a college degree.

            Mini Wheats

            When we were kids my brother and I got in a physical fight because he said I like mini wheats and I insisted I didn't. His argument was that I always sang the mini wheats song and I was deeply offended that he wasn't aware that it was just stuck in my head but I hated the cereal. I actually did like the cereal I'm not sure why I was arguing with him about it but I remember how genuinely angry I was.

            I'll tell you about the only legal trouble I've ever been in, the fight that got me arrested. It started over whether we should return a box of crayons or not, and to this day I don't have any idea how it escalated to the point of the cops being called, but they were and I was the one taken in.

            That's Unfair

            My boyfriend insisted that when two people are in an argument and one makes a point so reasonable and logical the other one can't disagree with it - it's unfair. I tried, logically and reasonably, to explain several times why that is just winning the argument, proving your point thoroughly and is completely fair.

            His answer was that I was being unfair.

            Pure Masochism

            How the ch in masochism is pronounced. My friend caught me saying "masoKism" while he would say "masoSYism."

            To be fair, he grew up speaking French, in which the ch in masochism is pronounced in "his" way. But he insisted that I was the wrong one here and that was just infuriating.

            A Non-Standard Ruler? 

            I worked for a company that made signs. We had a customer ask for signs that were 7mm wide that were to go on a door. Our sign makers figured the order meant inches because 7mm is pretty small, so made them 7 inches. I got a phone call from the customer who went mad at me for making them the wrong size. So I put a reorder through for 7 mm.

            Argued with the sign makers over it but they eventually agreed to do it after I shown them the order in writing. I even had the customer put her complaint in writing, reiterating the size they wanted.

            7mm signs went out and a day later I get the customer on the phone literally screaming at me.

            Cue the dumb argument - we ended up having an argument over how big a millimetre is, and obviously everyone in the office were laughing, but this customer just wouldn't accept it and said we must be using a non-standard ruler to measure.

            Ended up being escalating to the sales department manager who refused to issue a refund. We still don't know what they actually meant.

            This Unusual Vegan Argument

            Was in a pub with a few friends, and some random Dude dropped an ear, and somehow figured I'm vegan. Well, people like him are the reason I usually avoid mentioning it. He came up to me and insisted on starting a discussion about veganism. He claimed that by the end of it, I would be eating meat again.

            He listed some stupid arguments, I told him I was not convinced and then tried to keep on drinking beer with my friends. He followed me, and wanted me to "try to convert him to a vegan." I stupidly listed some of my reasons thinking it would make him go away. He told me he still was not convinced, so I was like whatever. Again, I really just wanted to drink beer with my friends.

            That dude followed me all night and expected me to try make him vegan. Doesn't matter what I said, and all the reasons that for me are obviously good enough to be vegan. He'd be just like "No, that doesn't convince me, therefore your argument and how you life is stupid."

            Didn't matter how often I told him that I honestly don't care; 5 minutes later he would come up to me again "I'm still not vegan, so veganism is stupid, all your arguments were stupid, now give me a good reason to become vegan!" At one point, I was literally yelling at him that I don't give a single flying f about what he eats and why, that it's in no way my responsibility to "turn somebody vegan" and in no way his business what I eat.

            Honestly, for that dude, I would have bought a whole ham, just to shove it up his stupid annoying face.

            Monty Python

            In college my roommate and I argued about a line in Monty Python & the Holy Grail. The scene with the Black Knight where the line "Alright, we'll call it a draw" is uttered. We argued about who said that line, whether it was King Arthur or the Black Knight.

            It went on for hours longer than it should have because I was stubborn and refused to admit I was wrong.

            Below Sea Level

            I live on an island and when you go upland and you look out the sea looks like it's higher than or on the same level as the land. It's just a weird perspective thing because of the horizon. One day some kid says that it's because the island is under sea level.


            I'm like wtf bro all of us would be with the fishes. He argues that no that's not true and if I just go upland I'll see. We then spend a good 5 minutes of my time arguing about it until I decided to leave this kid in his stupidity. He even said we shouldn't believe everything adults tell us and sometimes we need to think for ourselves.

            This kid was older than me and was going to a good school. Lost my respect for him ever since then.

            Tomash

            Someone tried to fight with me over how to spell my name.

            Now, my name is in a lot of languages with slightly different spellings. I would have accepted any of those spellings, but this one was just... Not even close. It didn't make any logical sense.


            An analogous example is if my name was Thomas and someone was insisting it was spelled Tomash. And not just the name Thomas in general, but that me specifically, on my birth certificate, was named Tomash. I know how to spell my own name.

            I swear to god, it went on for like an hour.

            No Balloons For Grandma

            My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky.

            He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space. Releasing balloons is terrible for the environment and kills/harms so much wildlife.

            He got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.

            Andre 2000?

            Giphy

            I'm late, but I saw this question and instantly remembered that I was booted from a Facebook group because I called someone out on a lie that was not only bull, but extremely pointless. She was friends with the moderator and they made the case that my argument over such a little lie was more of a problem than the lie itself (though they didn't refer to it as a lie.)


            The woman said that she used to babysit for Andre 3000 and that his name was Andre 2000 - but he changed it after the year 2000 had passed. This was so easily disproven it was ridiculous. Their debut album came out in 1994 and he was already going by Andre 3000 at that time.

            The argument wasn't a huge long drawn out thing, but the fact that either of us were on Facebook at separate times meant that the responses were over a long period of time so this argument lasted a few days.

            It was stupid.

            Richard Nixon

            I have a degree in history. I mostly focused on nationalism. Wrote a 50 page paper on it and Richard Nixon with around 50 100 sources. Looked at micro film for hours on end. Part of the paper focused on how Nixon being chair of the house committee of Unamerican Activities was used as a powerful weapon to use against political enemies. It also inspired Joe McCarthy. Have had people tell me I was wrong and Nixon was never elected to a position besides the president and Joe McCarthy came before Nixon. I stopped trying to talk history to people.


            I also know quite a bit about the history of the Balkans its amazing how many Serbs refuse to believe Tito did anything wrong.

            Wrote 100 page paper on nationalism in Israel. Its frustrating to talk about because for some reason a lot of people think Palestinian firing rockets randomly into Israel is ok but if Israel retaliates the people get up in arms over a targeted air strike that kills 3 people.

            Binder Clips

            I got into an argument with a co-worker over how we were attaching two pages of a letter together: small binder clips or paper clips.

            He felt that paper clips would leave a "dent" in the paper when removed, but binder clips won't. He refused to staple them together. I felt that binder clips would also leave a "dent", so we might as well just use the paper clips.

            It ended with him saying: "Do what you want [me], I don't care!" and storming off.

            Once got accused of faking being Jewish. Why? I have no clue. We argued over the course of a month, any time I'd bring it up and she heard about it, she'd begin going after me for "faking it".

            My mother's side is ethnically Jewish. Grandparents were practicing.

            Nutella

            Giphy

            3 friends and I once got into an argument about how to pronounce Nutella. It lasted for about 3-4 months. It was hilarious how serious we took it, it'd get heated but never for real serious.

            I think someone even called the company that made it to check, or that may have been for the Cheetos company. We were really bored in high school.

            Lingerie Boxes

            Late to the party, but there it is.

            I'm a manager at a small store. We're only 4 working there, so my team and I grew very close and we joke around a lot. Once during a slow shift, my employee and I had an argument because we were looking at the lingerie boxes, and I thought that two specific boxes had the same woman on it, but she was 100% positive they weren't the same person.

            Looking back, I don't know why it was such a big deal to us at the time, but we even called another employee who lives across the street to come and tell us what the heck was up with that. Turns out I was right, and she was pretty salty about it. It was a great night.

            Wicked Witch of the West

            I almost got into an argument with an old girlfriend over Glinda the good witch from Oz. She insisted that Glinda was manipulating Dorothy to assassinate the Wicked Witch of the West and convince the Wizard to leave to create a political void she could fill.

            I conceded the issue when I heard the whole premise because I thought it was too damn stupid to get worked up over.

            Keep Your Hands to Yourself

            Just the other day I legit got in an argument with my co-workers on why I don't like my butt being grabbed by anyone (I'm a guy). Seriously.

            They went on about "I don't mind it. Mike and I do it all the time and we don't care." Yeah, that's nice dude, but I'm not you, and there's something called "Keep your hands to yourself" (which was taught to a good portion of us growing up). Just like how Karen wouldn't like it if I touched her boobs or her grabbing your crotch or frankly ANY area you wouldn't like being grabbed, keep away. In general, you should not be touching me in any areas after I've told you not to several times before.

            So unless you're sleeping me or dating me, keep your damn hands off my toosh.

            Telekinesis

            My best friend and I argued over whether or not telekinesis was possible. Her argument was that humans don't yet know what the human brain at 100% usage was capable of, and that telekinesis was inside the possibilities.

            I said the brain does use 100%, just at different times.

            We didn't speak to each other for four days.

            Ghosts

            How dolphins reproduced and whether or not ghost existed (back to back with the same person). It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence (the argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures).


            How it shifted to the existence of ghosts is a solid and reasonable question to ask (I don't remember why). I had to then proceed to tell her that ghost hunting TV shows do not constitute as undeniable evidence.

            Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day. This was in high school SO... hopefully she was kidding.

            Dogs and Chocolate

            Giphy

            I told this stupid woman that chocolate is toxic to dogs. She went on to tell me how a little bit will just make them hyper and then they will calm down. I told her to google it. Her and her bf shut right up. Now they have a kid. Good luck, Jeremy and Andrea. morons.

            I should also add that this argument started because Jeremy was giving his tiny dog chocolate and I told him it was toxic.

            Is water wet?

            My roommate and I have a recurring argument over whether or not water is wet l, and whether or not a person is considered wet underwater.

            For the record, it is no to both questions.

            Mission Trip

            A kid a church telling me about the mission trip I went on. Not only was I not on that trip, but I had never been on any mission trip. We were good friends, so it's not like he would've mistaken someone else for me.

            He insisted I was there as if an entire week long trip would just fall out of my memory. He even had stories of things we'd done together. I'm not sure if he thought I was lying, joking, stupid, or crazy, but I was pretty sure he was some combination thereof.

            Dragon Tales

            One time I got into a shouting match with my mom and little brother in the car. The issue? The names of the two-headed dragon from the PBS kids afternoon show Dragon Tales. I swore it was Zack and Macie.

            It was actually Zak and Wheezie. I don't even remember why we were yelling about it.

            Green Or Yellow?

            When I was about 15 or so my mother and I spent about 20-30 minutes arguing about the color of a shirt. We agreed it was blue/green, but to me it was just a shade more blue, while to her it was just a bit more green.

            Turns out, your eyeballs yellow as you age and hers were 24 years yellower than mine, so I think that skewed her color vision.

            Stars In Their Multitude

            Giphy

            I once got in an argument over whether or not a line from the song "Stars" in Les Mis says "...but mine is the way of the lord" or "mine is the way of the law".

            I didn't even really care what he thought but he was so adamant and cocky that it got me heated. By the end of it we were shouting at each other and I had to apologize, which I think is what he wanted the whole time.

            Colorblind

            My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

            "Hey could you hand me that red _____?" "that's orange" "no, it's red" "orange" "YOU CANT EVEN KNOW".

            It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.

            Hot Water

            About five years ago, my girlfriend (now wife) once had a very intense argument about whether or not hot water cleaned things better than cold water.

            She genuinely believed that water temperature didn't matter. This is someone who has not one, but two masters degrees.

            We argued for something like 2 hours, and we seriously almost broke up over the whole thing.

            Biology Class

            I had an argument with a girl IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIOLOGY CLASS in high school about how humans are not mammals. She thought a human was a human and we are not mammals because "mammals are animals and humans are not animals"

            I tried explaining to her the difference between reptiles and mammals and how humans fall under the mammal category to try and educate her... but she just wouldn't listen.

            I still have no idea why the BIOLOGY teacher did not get involved...

            Solid Or Liquid?

            Some classmates and I got into a heated debate as to whether or not the human body could count as a soup, salad, or sandwich. The teacher got mad at us, but hey! All we were doing was watching a movie.

            For the record, my logic lays with soup- Liquid contained within a solid, at a hot temperature.
