People Share Their Best Comebacks to a Rude Customer

103. Rare To Medium


Was working in a steakhouse. The guy wasn’t really rude, just kind of a pain in the ass. He orders a strip steak, and when I asked how he wanted it cooked, he just says, “Rare to medium”.

“Do you mean medium rare?”

But he’s back to his friends and ignores me.

So I put “Rare to Medium” on the ticket and tell the cook I don’t know what it means either, only that’s what the customer said, and it doesn’t mean medium rare.

“No problem,” he tells me. This was also one of those places that put little stakes indicating the doneness in the steaks when plating.

One of the steaks has two, one reading Medium and the other Rare. Guess whose steak that was?
