Cannot be Granted

Perks often come with a certain status, and establishments can be very generous to clients and celebrity patrons as well. However, not all restaurants are easily starstruck and thus, they stick to their guidelines on giving out freebies. Not every famous celebrity can be treated to a free lunch, literally. On the one hand, certain celebrities are smart enough not to use their status, as they know their wanting freebies might affect their relationship with the establishment. On the other hand, certain celebrities think that they are entitled to discounts and freebies because of their fame and reputation, even though they have not really established their loyalty to such places.

Wanting to impress her family, Celebrity Host (CH) treated at a high-end restaurant in a posh hotel. As the celebration was in honor of a Family Relation (FR), CH ordered left and right. The expensive food and drinks surprised FR, as he was already nervous of the possible high cost of the treat. It’s not that they cannot afford the bill, it’s just that the cost might be too excessive and create a not so good impression on the younger ones.

As predicted, the bill came out to a whopping five figures. When CH saw the total, she boldly asked the cashier if she could get a discount. The cashier said he will ask as her request is beyond his responsibility. CH said that she was with FR, a famous and respected media personality. She even promised to write an excellent review of the restaurant. The cashier smiled, as CH and FR are very recognizable indeed.

Finally, the manager came over and CH repeated her request for a discount. The manager said there were no instructions and he cannot decide over such matters. CH was insistent and promised the manager that she will even bring a most sought after celebrity Reel Couple (RC) to the restaurant if she’s given a discount. The manager remained firm and said that he could not grant her request.

In the end, CH paid the full amount, as the staff remained steadfast, but they could not help but talk about the gall of such celebrity. Imagine someone as recognizable as CH namedropping and using the people she values for her own advantage. FR might not be happy if he finds out that CH mentioned him, and definitely, the fans of RC will shame CH for using the power couple without them even knowing. On the business side, the establishment is aware that once a discount is given to CH, then her next visits should be given the same accord.

    1. Mukha nga! Naku wala syang influence dun sa LT. Hello? Puro ambush interviews lang sya sa backstage. Di pa nga makuha ng sabay yung LT.

      Delete
    2. Sya lang din naisip ko. Kilala naman si FR pero di nagwork yon paghaggle nya kaya naisipan gamitin yon LT, nagmukha naman syang cheapipay at manggagamit nyan.

  11. I really hate these kind of celebrities, napaka abusado. Mahirap ang negosyo ngayon, resto business is very stiff at gusto mo pa ng discount. Maghintay kayo na ang resto mismo ang mag offer ng discount. Mga artista, mahiya naman kayo. You are giving celebrities a bad name, naging PG tuloy kayo

    ReplyDelete
  12. naku ilabas na lang ang senior citizen card ng mga kasama at may discount yan
