You walk in 5 minutes after we’ve already closed. You say “I just drove 20minutes to get here!” And I say “You should have left 25 minutes ago.”
First off, don’t come into a restaurant 15 minutes before it closes. You are keeping the employees from going home on time. You are going to get rushed service and nobody wants you there. Your measly tip means nothing compared to getting to go home. Secondly, if I don’t want to see you 15 minutes before we close, I sure as hell don’t want to see you 5 minutes after.
