Well this past Saturday Night, I had 1 more butt cooked, and 2 racks of spares more than normal. By a fluke, I had a flood of folks stop in at about 8:0 pm. All of the butt that I had cooked and one of the 2racks were wiped out.
But, here's the farkin' kicker:
The folks I had talked about in my original post stopped in at about 9:50pm (I made note of the time.) They asked if I had any left, and I told them just one rack of spares. They quickly said they wanted them. I wrapped the ribs up while Mrstx took care of the bill.
I heard the wife ask for $16 for thew ribs just as normal for our full racks. The would-have-been customer said they wouldn't pay full price for food that was still around at closing time.
Mrs tx knew that these were the same people bitching about not getting any Q later at night, so she told them that not to worry about it, she has two sons at home that would eat 3 day old hot dogs if you gave them the opportunity. The woman in the group started to gripe about how people don't know how to treat their customers anymore.
My wonderful wife simply replied, "I don't see any customers here, just people out to try to manipulate a bargain. We don't need customers like that."
I'll continue to cook more food, but to hell with these peopl Anyone else come across anything like this?
