As a celebrity, certain perks seem to be given to FC. As her presence and opinion are valued, workers who have the chance to meet her, only because of the context that they are going to wait or serve her, are on their toes to make sure FC gets the best of their product or service. Other than her opinion, FC has a reputation for knowing about the finer things in life, and thus, she would patronize only shops and restaurants that are known among the high crowd.
One time, FC and her friends chose to dine in an uppity restaurant. They placed their individual orders and FC chose a usual dish on the menu and a drink. The dish arrived and FC took a couple of bites and another. Then, she called the waiter and asked for the manager. The manager quickly asked how the dish was, and FC said that she was not happy with the taste and asked for the dish to be redone. The manager was facing FC, and thus, to avoid fuss, he brought it back to the kitchen.
When the redone dish was brought to FC, FC took another bite, but her expression was puzzling. The manager had an inkling when FC waved at him again. FC said the dish lacked the taste, and she asked for the dish to be improved. The manager took the plate and after a few minutes, returned the third attempt. FC took a bite and another. Finally, she called the manager again and told him that the dish was not excellent, and that she should not be billed for it. The manager was speechless, but no argument could be raised, as FC might create a big deal and embarrass the restaurant. When the bill came, FC only paid for the drink.
After the incident, her friends could not believe that FC got away with it. After coming out with three dishes, FC managed to fill herself up with the spoonfuls she took from each plate prior to asking it to be redone. The friends could only say that if one wants some freebie, one can be very creative. After all, FC’s bill only registered her drink.
Of course, none of the friends could not dare tell FC of horror kitchen stories about how food could sometimes be made extra special for a picky customer. However, they did go to a reputable restaurant and violating of the dish served to FC could not happen. For now, FC has her own style of getting free lunch.
