A trip out for Sunday breakfast nearly turned into hashbrownsgate. What began with a mistake on our food order turned into a near argument when the waiter decided to tell us that we were at fault and that we’d asked for the wrong items.
In the time it took him to return with our correct order he’d clearly found out that we had been right, and to give him the credit he deserved, he came back and apologised, thereby saving the situation from exploding into a full-blown food fight.
And it wasn’t the arrival of our correct food order that saved the day, but the way in which the waiter communicated with us after he’d wrongly decided that we were at fault.
