i need u all to judge this one
u all know “HUJAN” band right? so this is the story what they did to me by their family today.
so, on last tuesday, they come to my restaurant and ask me to do catering for them. on the first day, they ask daging masak kicap for 20 pax. i charge them 100. the cost for that dish is 80. i only get 20 ringgit profit. after they receive the dish, they complaint that its too little. i tell them that the food cost for the dish and they ask me to make it a bit more around 30 pax for the next menu without increasing the price.
the next day they take sweet and sour with which they satisfied. it is because for 50 ringgit dish, my cost is 45 ringgit. i just keep quiet.
the really f*cked up thing is today. 10 am they call me to double up the quantity. i say to them the dish for this afternoon done already but for tonight i certainly can double up the dish. after a while they call me to make 2 dish for 150 pax each. i ask them 5 times wheather confirm or not. they say confirm. so i go out n buy 250 numbers of fish and 13kg beef. the cost for the fish is 60 ringgit and the beef cost me 200 ringgit. when the time they pick up the afternoon dish, i ask them one more time whearter confirm or not the 150 pax for tonight. they once again, confirm it.
suddenly, on 1230 pm, the mother call me and tell me to reduce the pax to 100. i say i cant coz all the things i buy already. she keep arguing with me and tell me she will call back later. on 1 pm the mother call me again and this time tell me to make the dish not for 150 pax but 150 ringgit. i tell her that all the things i buy already for 150 pax. they cant do that. she say she want only 150 ringgit beef and 100 ringgit fish. my beef cost me 200 and the fish already 60. total up 260 already. this is not include all the herbs and oil and the little things. they keep arguing dont want to make 150 pax. and then they say they want to discuss once again.
on 2pm they call me and tell me they CANCEL the order and just want to pay for the 3 dish that im already sent. i tell them, how about all the stuff i already bought. they say that im a restaurant and should be no problem to sell those things. have u all ever see a restaurant cook 250 piece of fish for their nasi campur? i keep arguing and ask them to pay just the cost price of the catering for tonight and they can take all the things. they still arguing and she sent her daughter to pay me the 200 and left. i keep calling them to ask them to pay for the cost and take them. on 3pm her mother tell me that they still discuss about that and she say that she will never cheat me.
on 4pm i call her and her daughter for few times but they didnt pick up the phone. after few times, a guy answered the phone and tell me they will not pay. he say that they tell me early that they want to cancel it. he after that hang up the phone and right after that they say that i charge them too much. for ur information, food a beef dish, usually people will charge 4 ringgit to 5 ringgit per head. this is because of the beef is expensive.
now, i cant do anything and in my fridge there is 200 piece of fish waiting to be rotten and 13 kg beef.
so, what u all think?
