A post going viral on Reddit shows the Yelp review an angry customer left for an oyster bar in St. Louis, MO. The woman had picked the place for her birthday dinner, but claims that her reservation was not honored, her party was made to wait over an hour, and the restaurant was unable to accommodate seating for extra guests who showed up late. If that sounds bad, you should read the response the restaurant owner left for the woman.

She claims she had reservations but was still made to wait two hours. She clearly was not pleased with the service she received, vowed never to return, and included the hashtag "#missedopportunities" at the end of the review. She also blamed it on society (yes, really).

Part one: the initial review.

Does she not know she doesn't need to use a hashtag on Yelp?

Well, the restaurant manager wasn't too pleased with that review. He left his own response, tearing apart the woman's claims and complaints.

Chalking the woman's review up to "alternative facts," the owner proceeded to describe the incident the way he remembered it (including a few ALL CAPS passages). According to his memory of the night, the "privileged" woman was made to wait one and a half hours (not a full two), mainly because the restaurant does not take reservations (meaning the woman could not possibly have had one, as she wrote in her review). He also claims that her guests were sitting in chairs they'd helped themselves to from other tables, and sat smack dab in the middle of the aisles the servers use. He added that he hoped she really never would return, writing, "Guests like you we are happy to do without."

Part two: the owner's response.

It seems the woman wasn't done, though, as she updated her original review. She says no one stayed behind, her daughter was just polite enough to pay for the food she ordered.

Part three: the woman's follow-up (spoiler alert: she's still mad).

She also invokes Jon "Bar Rescue" Taffer in her follow-up Yelp review, although given the reviews this place generally gets on Yelp, it doesn't seem they actually need his help.

Working in a restaurant seems fun, doesn't it?
