Orders for well-done steaks. And then complaints about them being dry, tough and flavorless.

Arrogant, disrespectful, loud, discourteous customers. Parents of out of control children.

Lets see...

1) Oven or reach-in coolers kicking the bucket before or in the middle of service
2) ditto petitbleu and ChefOno
3) Banquet guests arriving more than an hour late
4) un-labled food in the walk-ins
