Serving at a touristy restaurant about 5 years back. Had a call for a reservation including “myself and my service dog”. Okay. No problem. I actually like “one tops”, even on Valentine’s, they’re usually quite nice and just want to be treated well despite taking up a table meant for 4+ people. I agree to take it while all the other servers are complaining about the reservation only being for one. Anyway. Hours later, in walks this drop dead gorgeous woman, with a full-grown man in a dog mask and full leather suit (complete with leather tail) being LED on ALL FOURS behind her. She nonchalantly gives her name, it’s on the reservation list, and so the hostess just…leads her to her table… 

I walked up to them, being super professional (I was so stoned it wasn’t really phasing me) and this woman just orders like 200$ worth of random apps, entrees, and a bottle of higher-end merlot. Of course, there were stares, of course, other tables inquired and/or complained, but he was such a well behaved “service dog” and i never mentioned it or asked questions or stared, and I sh*t you not, that lady tipped me 100% in cash with a twinkle in her eye as she left. 10/10 would wait on them again. Not really a “disaster” in the traditional sense, but…disaster nonetheless. —CamoCricket
