Would have Millionaire!!!

I have been given quite a few chances to became millionaire, but for that i should have been in US to sue them and claim it! :P
Here it goes ;)

1) It began with Mcdonalds (Gurgaon, MG Road). I ordered a McVeggie and a bottle of Pepsi. I started my meal and realize in the middle that the Pepsi isnt testing the same (yea yea it has a taste!! :D )!!!
I checked the bottle and realize that the "date of bottling + best before 3 months" is gone, so i called up the customer care again. The kid was really fundoo and this is what he told me... "Sir its best before, you can still drink it..." and i said Wow!!! Which means Mcdonalds offer me something which is really not in best of condition. Somehow i had a word with his Manager and he said Sorry to it, and sent me a new bottle and to my surprise, 2 more burgers and 2 shakes!!! :P

But its India, Deepeika advised me to sue them (my ex, she is a lawyer) but then we decided to go against it coz it was more of a pain for her!! :P
Lesson Learnt: Check the best before date on the bottle before drinking it...

2) Pizza Hut (Forum, Bangalore), Ordered a Pizza and paid on the phone using Credit card. I happily signed the reciept without offering a tip. My AMEX statement comes and what i realize is that i have paid some 50 Rs of tip for the Pizza!!!
And more than 50 Rs, i was worried that what this guy would have done with my CC number... which made me more angry. I had a word with the manager, the delivery guy was fired and what i get eventually is a dinner free at Pizza Hut!!!
And yes that was the last time in Bangalore they took an order on phone with credit card! :P
Lesson Learnt: Please make sure from the next time to encircle the final amount on the reciept!

3) This is the most hilarious one, coz i ordered a Pasta in Pizza Hut (Domlur, Bangalore, Veg offcourse), showing the picture of what i want, and what i get is a Chicken Pasta!! :P
And the hilarious part, this dood is showing me the picture of the Veg Pasta and telling me that I have ordered this Pasta which is a Chicken one!!! It was 11 pm in the night and they were about to close, other restaurants were also closed and I was hungry as anything!!!
But when such things happen they kill your hunger so i was more interested in fighting!!!! :P
I asked the Store manager to make sure that the GM talks to me ASAP!!! Somehow i get this impression that when i leave my card with people, they think i am some big shot!! :P hahaah
So the General Manager Pizza Hut came to my house after a day and surprised me... He Said sorry and gave me a written apology. This time frankly i was looking for a bigger compensation, so i told him that this is not done and all and this is the second time it is happening!!
He came with a free coupun and also offered me a dinner where he himself served me at the restaurant!!! This dood also came out to be my senior and it saved Pizza Hut coz all of marus or gujjus(pure veg :P ) know how it feels when someone serves you a Non Veg cuisine!! :P

Btw... i had 3 free meals there!! ! :D
Lesson Learnt:- Make sure of what you are eating even when you are eating in a MNC Restauruant!!!

Prashant evolving.. said...

you know wht is the most heard phrase in India when you ask the service provider that ou have done this is Chalta Hain...Pata nahin ya chalta hain par chalta hain

the_thinker said...

Lol....
If you were her in kathmandu, they would sue you for actually seeing the tag and for the audacity of making some kind of complain.
Customer has a different meaning here Custa pronounced as Nepali term will mean pain (I think even in hindi Custa means same as it is a Sanskrit term), Mar means die. So people who are destined to die in pain are customer....

Cinderella. said...

LOL !!! Kinna saara free khana yaar !!

And B'lore mein yeh sab pateneted hai kya ?

It happened to us once at CCD, we orderd something, they got us smth else n started insisting that it was just what we ordered.....damn !!!

lol Ankur!

but ya know, u dun hv to be in the US to sue em. Sue the franchise in India n become a millionaire soon..so we'll can come n partaaaaaaay! ;-)


I hv often got what I didnt order...I return em on the spot. Im a very difficult customer. If I dun get served politely and like I deserve to be at a restaurant, I walk upto the manager...to hv a lil chat. And I make sure I let em know Im not happy.

Im paying to be served..and I deserve 100% satisfaction.


Keshi.

Ne said...

You did the right thing! I have returned a lot of food also, because it was not up to my satisfaction!

But I also watch them make it, because some restaurants have been known to spit in your food and even go to the bathroom in it when you are really nasty to them or just complain..

Millionaire! That is what I wanna be!

Toodles

Vrij said...

Pavi!!!! said...

sahi hai..free meals mila...

n sorry to dissapoint u, but nope u wldn't have b'com a millionare over such incidents if u were in the US..

I had the CC incident happen with an hotel ..they charged me twice n it took me 3 months to get arnd $500 back.

n i have also been served non-veggie food after requesting for vegie food. Here the prob is they don't understand "non-veg" or even "no chicken no meat"...they just assume! n they dint give me any free meal. i had to pay for the food i ate n dint eat!

Thanks for the advice ;)

ceedy said...

Btw

I do agree with Pavi...it not just these factors that can make you a millionaire..

you need to have better bad luck...where by you find a piece of glass, or you trip or hurt yourself...then you have a case
