: How about the customers who walk in 10 minutes before closing time and want to be seated and then take their good old time ordering & eating. Doesn't the public realize that a restaurant has a KITCHEN that has to be "practically taken apart & cleaned-up" for the night and that they don't wait until 2 mins before the closing sign goes up to start doing it???? Some cooks work all day 10-12 hours and some waitresses work double shifts as well,so they don't want to have to stay an extra hour or so for those uppity people to stroll in when it's convenient for them. Also those seem to be the cheap tippers too!!!! CUSTOMERS NEED TO WAKE UP OR STAY HOME!!!
I don't agree. If I come in 10 minutes before closing time I came while the place is still open and I deserve to be served. Maybe you're in a hurry to get home but customer service should come first and if you refuse to serve customers who arrive near the closing time you're hurting your own company's bottom line, and maybe making sure they go somewhere else the next time.
