Entitled Karen Fakes Food Allergy, Server Refuses To Serve Her, Fight Ensues

Entitled Karen Fakes Food Allergy, Server Refuses To Serve Her, Fight Ensues

People who fake food allergies make it difficult for people with real food allergies.

A lot of people lie at restaurants about food allergies. They are not allergic in real, they would just fake allergies so they can get some of the ingredients excluded from their items. One should be honest about it rather than lying and getting caught in the end. A server shared an experience with a woman on Reddit. This server works at her father’s restaurant.

One day, a huge family came over to their restaurant. Everyone in the family knew what they wanted but one woman started inquiring about the ingredients and told OP that she is allergic to certain ingredients and does not want them to be included in her dish. OP told her that there are chances of cross-contamination and that she would not serve her this dish. The entitled Karen shouted at the server and shoved the menu at her. The server declined to bring that dish for her as she didn’t want any of her customers to go into anaphylactic shock at the restaurant. This was the point where the fight ensued. Scroll down to know what happened next.

1. OP’s father worked hard to open his restaurant. OP works at her father’s restaurant. A family of 12 people came to the restaurant last night.
