As anybody who has ever worked in the service industry knows, it can be a love/hate way to make a living. Dealing personally with strangers on a regular basis is sure to introduce you to a broad spectrum of human interactions, from polite, kind and sweet customers, to those you never, ever want to see again.

The subreddit Tales From Your Server is a place where service industry workers come together to share their stories. One user, lustfulspiritanimal, decided to tell her story of an eventful Valentine’s Day while working as a waitress in a restaurant. There were, as you can imagine, a lot of couples dining together that evening, but one couple in particular became the center of attention.

This is definitely a customer from hell story. However there is more to it than that, as this customer was duly served her just desserts. They say you can call a lot about a person by how they treat someone there to serve them, and I think it’s fair to say that this boyfriend found out a lot more than he bargained for.
