Congrats, Diane!

One of our favorite customers graduated from college and moved back to New York this week. Diane~ we will miss you so much. You have been part of my daily life for the past two years and I don't know what we'll do without you. We'll miss the cute little way that you throw a hissy fit every time that we tell you that it'll be just a couple of minutes before your table is ready. We'll miss the way you don't order anything from the menu-- you look at the menu like it's a grocery list-- you disect every meal and get a special order every day. We don't call you "Miss High Maintenance" in a bad way- we think it's cute when you order your latte "1/2 reg, 1/2 decaf, 1/2 soy milk, 1/2 2%, three ice cubes". The waitresses don't mind running their butts off for you- it's worth it for that 3% tip you always leave. We especially love it when you bring your sorority sisters along and prove to them how high and mighty you are by ordering the servers around and insulting their clothes, their hair, etc. I'll never forget the day that your biscuit wasn't warm enough for you-- instead of sending it back, you tossed it across the restaurant and hit another diner in the head. Of course we had to comp that diner's meal, but it was worth it because you and your sisters seemed to get such a laugh out of it. It's all about making you happy, but you seem to understand that all too well. This week, you left us with a story that we'll be telling for years: our hostess was walking you to the table and you were following. You began to complain to the hostess, saying "can't you move any faster?". You probably didn't notice that the hostess was 8 months pregnant. But why should you care? You were probably in a hurry. Why bother wasting time on good manners? Afterall, she's just a restaurant worker-- she's so beneath you anyway.
We're sure going to miss you, Diane. It's been our pleasure to serve you.

In New York she won't even stand out. Just another rude customer.
